Onto our second Touring L
We purchased a rental 2017 Touring L six months ago and have absolutely loved it. In fact it's been the best family vehicle we've ever owned.
We are a convert from the SUV world. We've had Land Rover, Lexus, Honda, and GMC. We had the white with dark interior 7 passenger Pacifica but are expecting another addition to the family so upgrading to the 8 passenger was a must.
We put about 50k miles on the first one, which we just traded in for our second Touring L with only 14k miles. This model is the exact same color in and out as the last but has ESS, which I have always hated since I've tried it on rental cars. I have spent some time reading through the forum here on ESS and am going to give it a try over the next couple weeks before deciding on whether to buy the Smart StartStop plug-in or not.
I changed all the front bulbs (low beams, high beams/DRL, fog lights) with LEDs, which I worked out what brands worked best on the last van. Overall, I am very happy with the Pacifica and am looking forward to the many trips we have planned in it this year.
I plan on trading this in in a couple years for 2018 or 2019 Limited, especially before the factory warranty is up. I hope Chrysler keeps up the great work, as I have noticed, they have made some pretty big waves in the automotive pool. Most of the folks around this area are Odyssey owners but I have noticed a good chunk have left Honda land for the Pacifica. It's arguably the best bang for your buck, especially with how well equipped it is and how great it looks!
