A year in and 20,000 miles. We love the Pacifica. I drove my wife's Audi A6 Quattro yesterday and realize that I hadn't been in it for several months. The Pacifica is our every day vehicle. We have been from Chicago to Cleveland 5 times, to Pennsylvania , Michigan, Wisconsin and more. This week we will be driving to Austin, TX.
We have had two oil changes so far and zero additional repairs. The only complaint is that the navigation system wants us to take unnecessary exits when traveling on Hwy 80.
I would trade it in for a hybrid but we like the HID headlights and the seat memory.

Nice. The Pac is such a great road trip car. And you're right, I'd probably get a PacHy if they had the exact same features as my limited.

Yes, I figured that out but it is not convenient for a passenger to enter data
I find that the voice recognition for address is poor when actually driving. Itís is fine when parked. You (or rather the passenger) can also use the phone Uconnect app to send address to the car in case you find it otherwise difficult.

Cornfield, thank you very much for the updates all year! I have been following this forum for several months and the negative posts are making the decision to trade my Ody for a Pacifica a little scary. Your saga is good news.

I live in Illinois also, but probably a little over 100 miles SW of you in a small city outside of Peoria. Lots of cornfields here too!

The Texas trip went like the rest of our trips. Smooth as can be. It was below freezing when we were in Austin and they had 1/4" of rain, the entire city was shut down. We stayed in our hotel room and watched the road carnage on TV. I think the Pacifica would have driven fine but we wanted to avoid the Winter amateurs. The remote start is helpful to warm the van up before getting in. I love the heated seats and steering wheel too.
We averaged about 24 MPG going an average of 75 MPH on the Hwy's and obeying the speed limits on local roads.

Cornfield, Tell me you do know that the center console does have a larger drawer accessed from the 2nd Row cup holder drawer. Also you do know that you can access any Previous or Recent Trip on your Navigation while rolling down the highway. I also like changing the parameters such that the back up camera stays on a little longer so when you begin moving forward the camera is still on, and changing it so that when you put your turn signal on the side view warning not only shows the lit triangle but also beeps.
