Touring Plus and extended Warranty questions

Hi all,

I'm contemplating on buying a 2018 Touring Plus Pacifica. Any inputs on this model?

Then, I'm curious about the extended warranty stuff? Is it worth buying/negotiating? My dealer offered 5 year of 60k power train and 3 year or 36k basic limited warranty.

What kind of warranties would you recommend in addition to the above?

Will really appreciate any inputs on this.

Thanks a lot folks.

I believe thats the standard warranty the van already comes with, if they are offering it to you they already sound like they are taking advantage of you. If your going to buy a warranty don't buy anything other then the Chrysler factory extended warranties. The 3rd party warranties are junk and the dealers only sell them because they get commission. I bet they'll be surprised when you ask about the Chrysler factory extended warranties. There are different levels - I chose the lifetime warranty. I recommend researching the chrysler factory extended warranties.

As for the touring model I couldn't tell you. we ordered a limited with all the bells and whistles and with a lifetime warranty. I love it much better than having a truck. I drive the van - my wife drives the jeep.

Welcome to the forum.

It looks like a Touring Plus is a nice compromise for those who want a van without all the extras but still has power doors and some other nice features. It just depends on your preferences and needs/wants.

If you want an overhead DVD player (that has other ports too), it would be much easier to have it already installed than to buy it and install it later from what I've seen of the instructions online. Some people think that having an overhead player works better than two seatback screens when there are people in the third row who would like to see the video also.

I wanted an installed roof rack and had to get a Touring L at the time I bought my van to get that feature. I have seen since then that the roof rack can be purchased from Mopar for a few hundred dollars and installed later. The roof holes are pre-drilled and covered with a rubber strip than can be removed to install the rack.

There are many posts about warranties if you use the forum search feature. Whether to buy an extended warranty depends on how long you plan to keep the van, your preference, and budget. I bought a Mopar extended warranty from Zeigler online that was recommended by @Damoncaravanman since there are so many electronic things on the van and we tend to keep our vehicles a long time.

Thanks guys. In fact, I'm in the showroom and about to take the car out. No, they did not offer that warranty for extra price. They offered a life time for almost 4k but I rejected it. The warranty that it comes with should be good i think.

I'll see if I want to sign up for an extended warranty later.

Somehow I like this car. Getting the dark cordovan. I was sold onto this model after looking around Honda and Toyota. Some people pointed out that Toyotas are very reliable but the Chryslers seemed to have improved in recent years.

Let's see how this goes. My first minivan for our growing family! A bi overwhelmed and excited.

If you plan on keeping the van after factory warranty expires, its worthwhile getting the Mopar extended warranty. Chances are, your dealer will not be able to compete with some of the online prices available for these. I bought a used 2017 Limited with all the safety tec and other packages. I had 2 years left on electronics warranty (original 3 year 36,000) and decided that the $1250 I paid for another 7 years covering pretty much everything...was just cheap insurance !

There are many plans and deductibles available and you do not need to decide for a couple of years or so (bearing in mind, prices will no doubt go up). I got mine from Chrysler warranty direct and they were very easy to deal with and slightly cheaper for the same plan than Zeiglers.

We have a 2018 Touring Plus S model. Have about 10K miles on it and I just love it. We have the overhead DVD at no extra charge because of upgrading to the 20" wheels. Love the cloth seats and not burning my legs on the hot leather here in Florida! The Plus gave us all the features we wanted without a bunch we didn't. Good luck!

Ive been seeing people having battery problems. Did you have any issues with battery? Hope they fixed it for 2018 models.

Zero battery problems. Only time it was in for service was for 2 recalls. Pacifica has been virtually flawless. Sirius XM has been the only disappointment.

We ended up getting the Touring L +. If you can swing it, this model has all sorts of goodies at a decent value. Highly recommend getting the Advanced Safety Tech package. The Limited, of course, has the most features, but there are some things that it comes with that we did not want, including power third row power folding seats and the fact that it is only available with black carpeting. It does, however, come with HID headlights and memory driver's seat, very desirable features not available on any of the lessor models.

Hey guys,

I'm having some uconnect issues. At the dealership during the showing, the sales guy's cell phone carplay connected ok. Once, purchase was done and I was about to take it out, my android couldn't connect and neither any of the apples also at the dealership.

I came home, my wife's android connects once but I try again, it doesn't. My phone doesn't either.

It appears functional but I guess am missing something.

Any inputs on this? I'll perhaps post a separate thread.
