    Reivew Of Chrysler Pacifica 2004 2wd And 2006 Awd —

    This is my second Chrysler Pacifica I owned the fledgling 2004 2WD, and now have the 2006 Limited AWD fully loaded with electronic gizmos! Performance on both the models is a little lacking in the power department, but if you put your foot in the pedal it will move. It's a fairly quiet and smooth riding vehicle which gives the illusion it's not moving very quickly even when it is. When I traded in my 2004 it had a leaking master cylinder (which I'm sure had been leaking for months and I just thought I had a bad cap) and I was told one of the rear shocks was leaking. My 2006 has not needed any repairs and at this point in time has 34k miles on it. I have driven this car on several long road trips between MN and IN, one with my mother and mother-in-law (yes I am crazy) but the Pacifica rides so well no one ever complains about road trips. I have to give it a 5 out of 5 for fun factor when you consider the rear seat passengers speakers can be muted when watching a DVD with the wireless headphones and the front passengers can listen to the single-CD player, radio, or SIRUIS through the front speakers at the same time. The hands free blue tooth interface works amazingly well also, I just wished it could use the address book in my phone instead of needing me to program one into the car. Gas mileage on the 2WD was about 2-3mpg better than the AWD model, I'm getting about 17-18mpg on average with a mix of city and highway driving when driving normal(not like a banshee or a grandpa). I have added optional accessories like the remote start with confirmation of start, molded mud guards, rain drip guards, the iPOD adapater (note it does not interfere with the Radio/CD/or DVD changer), the roof top carrier, all weather floor mats, chrome exhaust tip, and the rear storage liners and find all the accessories where simple to install and they all work great! The paint and finish quality of the 2004 held up to several harsh Indiana winters and summers and only required wax once a year, the 2006 is garaged but I must admit the heater in the Pacifica is very good (here in MN it hits -25 below actual temperature) and it takes only a few minutes for the cabin to be warm and the heated seats to be toasty even in these temperatures. The Pacifica is a heavy vehicle but it stops pretty well, it's not a sportscar, but handles and brakes like a large luxury car more than a mini-van or truck. The interior is quite nice with faux wood grain trim on some of the dash and steering wheel giving it a very luxurious look and the leather seats have a very nice feel as do the other surfaces in the cabin.

    Pros: Comfort, Electronic Gizmos (radio, dvd player, navigation, etc)

    Cons: Navigation disks are $200, slightly underpowered, wide vehicle (garage hog)

    What A Vehicle — I love everything except two thngs. The first: I usually have to dunk my head so low to get into the car. The doors need a little more hieghth to them. The second: It could do a little better on gas. Other than those two thngs the Pacifica has met everyone of our needs and looks and drives like we are in a rolls roice SUV.

    Pros: The Pacifica has met everyone of our needs and looks and drives like we are in a rolls roice SUV.

    Cons: The first:  I usually have to dunk my head so low to get into the car. The doors need a little more hieghth to them. The second: It could do a little better on gas.

    Good Everyday Family Vehicle — With the third row of seats up, there is very little storage. Most days there are only four in the car, so the third row can stay folded....then there is lots of room. Power is adequate, but not great. The ride is very nice and there are alot of toys in the car. The DVD player is the only way to travel with kids.

    Pros: Comfortable, reliable, good leg room in all rows.  Drives and steers like a sport sedan, very little body roll with out harsh ride.  Styling is elegant, not flashy look at me.

    Cons: Luggage volume almost zero with third row in use, and fuel economy isn't great.

    Awesome Car — This car, like the '04 Pacifica, is an excellent vehicle. All body/interior lines match all the way around the vehicle. This car is nearly fully loaded, the leather interior is very comfortable, the 7-speaker Infinity sound system, very good. The car can spin the tires on a hard start (not that it should be that important for a family vehicle, though it is fun, nonetheless). The 19" chrome rims look great [when clean], and the sunroof is nice.

    Pros: 19" Chrome rims, excellent fit/finish, good sound system, awesome interior, peppy 3.5L V6, storage space

    Cons: Rides harder due to 19" chrome rims (uses lower-profile tires).
