I am an extremely picky buyer when it comes to autos -- the styling has to first of all attract me , or else nothing doing . As someone else here said , Pacifica attracts you to it - the styling is way superior than anything else on the market . when you walk towards or away from your shiny new car and you don't feel proud of how it looks, doesn't matter what other features you have inside. On that score Pacifica has been nothing but a delight for the last couple of weeks .
I test drove like 12-13 other vehicles - large SUVs included. For the love of God , I could not figure out what makes a suburban mom or dad go through the torture of loading their 3 kids into the claustrophobic chevy tahoe or mazda cx-9. Minivan is just so much much better -- and de - stressing for a busy parent. And when you can make them look as good as the Pacifica , it becomes a no brainer , for me at least.
