Chrysler Pacifica Owners: Meet the Members



  • pscdocpscdoc Posts: 91
    Hi everyone, I recently purchased a new '05 Pacifica Limited in Brilliant Silver fully loaded except for the HID and Uconnect(uconnect is on order from dealer). Its been about a month now and I can't be happier with this vehicle.
  • Howdy All,

    I just drove home a slightly used 2005 Pacifica Touring yesterday. The Pac was a Chrysler Rep vehicle so it is in very good condition.

    The dealership had a white Pac Touring and a blue Pac AWD, I ended up getting the white with a little reserves in my mind, I've never really been fond of white vehicles, but this grew on me quick.

    I LOVE this vehicle, I went from a 2001 Grand Am SE to this and I don't think I will ever look back.

    White is beautiful ! I got the red because in Canada anything is white during the winter, so I thought that white wouldn't be too visible in the snowy ditch !
  • No sunroof and no chrome wheels, just the regular alloys........

    I am the proud owner of a 2004 Midnight Blue Pacifica. My car has not had any of the problems that are talked about with the '04 models maybe because it was manufactured in 3/04. I love driving it, I moved over from an Accord V6 to a Pacifica that seats 6. It fits my family of 4 so nicely and has room to spare. This car cruises so nicely and I really think I made a wise investment.

    Lots of people moved from Honda to Pacifica. Me I kept my Accord and was thinking to buy a 2nd Honda, but following recent service experiences, I let know my Honda dealer that I would buy my 2nd car from Chrysler.

    It was a pleasure to see the dealership boss face when I went to pick up my wife from the Honda dealership in my Pacifica. I hope they will finally fix the Accord. I waived at him and smiled ...

    HI all:
    Picked up our new (to us) 2004 Pac on March 28th - Magnesium(Forest green)/slate leather interior. Only had 2200 mi's - owner traded it back in for a new 300. First "SUV like" vehicle I've owned - so driving it takes a little getting used to, but handles just fine. For a family of 5, it's definitely a great vehicle for the money. Love the safety ratings and the kids love having their own seat. The Flaherty's from Philadelphia

    I just picked up my 2005 used PAC silver, with moonroof, leather, with 3/36k and 8/80k, certified. Dealer ask me to come in and handle the TSBs regarding the clunking sound at low speed turning and the water on the drivers side. I also presented them with the March recall notice on th PAC headlights, So I hope to get all fixed, next week. I am going to order the factory foglights and install my self.

    My name is Wing Ngan and i will be a 2005 AWD Pacifica Owner tomorrow. Just talk to the sales on Saturday, make the deal is a AWD U package and touring package final price is $30000 with 0 % finance. How you think is it a good deal?
    I live in MA Boston. I trade in my 5 years old Ford Explorer. I love the Pacifica a lot, since they come out the market, I wish i can get it soon and enjoy the ride, a little upset because the dealer cannot find me a HID headlight and NAV system. By the way I use my Pocket PC for the GPS. so save me $1700 also i get a after market HID for only 320.00.
    Happy to join this Pacifica family.
    I wish we can share our experience about the Pacifica.
    :) :) :)

    Wing, run the numbers on Edmunds in New Cars to see if you got a good deal. You can see what the average purchase price for a Pac like yours is. Make sure you add all the options.
    You can also see if you got a fair price for the Explorer by running the numbers in Used Cars.

    :P Hi bjbird2
    I pick up my car on Thursday.
    Final price is 30000, at the same day i still think about trade my ford to dealer or not, cause they only pay me 5000..... than suddenly one of my friend call me up, tell me his car got total 2 days ago. the Insurance company will pay him $7000 for it. than i check it on edmund bluebook my ford trade in value is $7800I sell it to my friend for $7000. so i make a good deal on it
    Than on Friday one of my friend he is a guy who own a body shop. he tell me one of his customer buy a set of H7 HID try to put it on his car, but it not working because have some circuit to protect the power ,, ... whatever is not work on his car, so he want to sell it for $200 ...hhheeeeeeeeeee i tell my friend i will try it first before i pay for it, so i put it on my car and test it, it works great. it is much much much better than the orginal light.
    SO now I feel is look like everything is ready for my new Pacifica.
    I love it a lot
  • My name is Gene and I am from Buffalo, NY. My wife wanted a mini-van, and I did not. We met in the middle by selecting the stylish/sporty Pacifica.

    We took delivery of our 2005 Inferno Red, Taupe Leather interior, FWD, Navigation and DVD Pacifica on June 11, 2005. We paid $29,000 something after getting our Chrysler discount which is 1% below invoice. (My wife works for GEICO, and they offer a deal for purchasing any Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicle)

    It's a great looking vehicle, and will meet our needs as parents of a two year old. My wife and I are under 30 years old, and this vehicle is very much luxury for the price point.

    I hope we have much success. :D

    Well I got 27k on it now and after the PTO TSB repair, no issues, Gas mileage at varying speeds is over 20mpg on the highway. ~400 mile trips seem to use 17.4 gallons. I seems to average approximately 21.4 on these trips. No major issues have shown up.
  • nuruc7nuruc7 Posts: 98
    Well, my last trip the PAC used 20 gallons to make the trip and so it averaged 18 mpg - maybe I hit the pedal too hard?
  • Hello all, my name is Jay Lloyd and I recently purchased a Midnight Blue Pacifica. I live in Vacaville, CA and I love my new car. I have a two year old with another baby on the way. This was a great investment. I've tried to get little things to help spruce it up like the chrome tailpipe, and the Pacifica grocery pouch for the trunk area. has some ideas for it but mostly after market purchases. I got plenty of room seeing as though I'm six foot five. The gas out here is crazy but it does well on a full tank. Other than that, It's been a great vehicle.

    Hi there Jay,

    First off, congratulations on your recent purchase. Happy to see that you're enjoying your new Pacifica. It's certainly a beautiful vehicle. By the way, my name is Miguel and I am a Marketing Representative with the Chrysler Information Center and I wanted to let you know that if you happen to need information or have any questions regarding your new Pacifica, feel free to ask. I will research the information and provide you with a response in a timely manner.

    In the meantime, have fun with your new Pacifica!!!

    I'll be around.

    Miguel M.
  • I'm not trying to burst your bubble,but. I jumped on the 2004 FWD.Could not wait to get it. Had problems with guide arm bushings going bad. Had to be replaced,both right and left at 5000 miles. I traded it when the 2005 Touring became available. I had the same problem with the 05 at 10,000 miles noises when turning in front end. No recall.From CHRYSLER.
    I went online the other night to see the Bluebook,of this $33000.00 vehicle, with no dvd ,no sunroff, but everything else. I traded it yesterday, and got $19000.00 from a Lexus dealer. $1000.00 DOLLARS over bluebook. No damage in excellent condition, lest than a year old. Hope you don't have this problem, but the depreciation of value made me mad.
  • I don't think anyone paid $33,000 for any FWD Pacifica with no DVD, no sunroof, but everything else. I paid $25,400 for just the vehicle you described, with leather.It was new.

    People (and car magazines and, yes , throw MSRP's around like they mean something........They don't mean a damn thing. At the end of the day, what matters is supply and demand , and the price you actually pay to drive the whatever it is home to your garage.....

    So let's all agree, no trade value, that $33,000 doesn't mean anything at all. Period............................
  • I'm leaseing a 04 Pac. I have about 5 mo to go on lease. Thinking I would like to buy at lease end, but buyout is several thousand above the price that they are selling for on the used car lots. Being you are a Chrsyler rep could you tell me how to contact some one to see if Chrysler would be willing to reduce the buyout price that would be more in line with the present value. Thank you, Paul

    It's been 2 months since I bought my 04 Midnight blue PAC AWD. all options except uconnect. I got it for $26k it has 17k on it. So far so good, aside from the center front speaker caving-in that dealer replace the clip that holds the vent for free. Every morning I wake up eager to drive. Just came back from 7 hrs. drive, very comfortable. My kids enjoyed the dvd player. Any news when the updated DVD for the nav is coming out? BTW, I have no regrets trading my 1999 Pathfinder.
  • Hello all! We purchased our 2005 Pacifica Touring in Stone White two months ago. Has light taupe leather and 6disc dvd, but we didnt' get the dealer's video screen added. Hindsight is 20/20! With three kids and no way to add an aftermarket to the DVD, it looks like we will install a separate DVD player and headrest monitors! I went from a Yukon XL to the Pacifica - I miss the cargo room, but love the gas mileage (about 17-18 in town and up to 24 on the highway)! We were looking for something sporty with better gas mileage and comfortable room for a family of five. Not to mention safe - the Pacifica fit the bill. We have added tinted front windows, low profile wind deflectors, chrome tailpipe cover, chrome window pillars and new speakers (factory ones were the worst I had ever heard!!!) Too bad Chrysler set it up so you couldn't do too many modifications to sound and video without paying an arm and a leg and maybe your firstborn to the dealer! - that is the one thing that may keep us from buying another!

    Hi there where did you buy your wood dash kit? the name you gave isnt working-- Thanks!
  • I bought an 04 Pacifica in stone white and light taupe leather in January 04, because I liked the looks of the Pacifica, but it is a vehicle that only really appealed to me in the lighter colors and a light interior...........

    I never get tired of looking at the Pacifica from any angle, and that is all I need to know that I made a good choice, no matter the inevitable shortcomings it may have...............

    I recommend the mudflaps front and rear, Sirrius satellite radio, and the black door edge guards as further additions to the custom look............
  • bjbird2bjbird2 Posts: 647
    I think the black edge door guards just ruin the look of any car. Why would you want to emphasize the door openings that designers and engineers work so hard to minimize and make as small as possible? The vertical black lines do nothing to improve the appearance of a car, although they may make you feel better in a tight parking space when you bash your neighbors car. ;)
  • In the white Pacifica, the black trim already stands out on all the rest of the car, so the door edge guards don't really stand out . I mean , there is a lot of black trim on a Pacifica in the first place.

    The door edge guards do not look bad on this Pacifica. They are small, rope like, and just add a little bit of a sporty break to all of the horizontal lines of the car. Not to mention the scratch prevention idea..............

    The dealership that put them on mentioned they looked good........I say it depends on the car or Truck you are talking about.................... :shades:
  • The door trim guards are actually chrome and black and tie in very well with the chrome pillars and the rest of the black trim on the vehicle. If I can ever figure out how to post a picture, I'll let you see for yourself.
  • I did not have chrome pillars on my 04 Pacifica, so the black door edge guards I think look better, as I have just the regular alloy wheels, not the chrome ones......

    As I said before, the door edge guards do not stand out very much, considering the amount of black trim already on the vehicle...........................

    If I scroll those images to the right (to see all four of them) it seems that you have a fog light on the left side, but no fog light on the right side ?!?! Am I wrong ??
