How about "I love my Pacifica!"

Well, we are a few days from deciding on a 2018 Pacifica. The wife is babysitting the kids and should be back home Saturday. Depending on what they offer for our 2015 Chrysler T&C - we might just buy a 2018 Pacific. Simply can't beat the price. Anywho - like everything else I do - I research my next vehicle a bunch primarily on forums. I know that auto forums are 80% members joining because they had a problem and looking for a solution. So - I have a pretty good handle on the possible problems experienced by a small percentage of owners - I want to hear the good stuff now.

So - how about ONLY GOOD STORIES about your Pacifica.

I think as you continue browsing, you will find lots of such stories already on the forum. Try "New Member Introductions," "Chrysler Pacifica Minivan MPG and Fuel Economy," "Chrysler Pacifica Minivan versus the Competition," and "What Did You Do to Your Chrysler Pacifica Today" sub-forums, for a taste.

Thanks PacificaMinivanFan for your suggestion. I have pretty much browsed most of sub-forums. I enjoy reading member experiences after owning the Pacifica for a few months. I will keep browsing.

Thanks again for your reply.

If you want some hard core fans of Pacifica, then check out the “S”owner’s too. They are a cool bunch. But I love my Pacifica too.

Since you have a '15 T&C, you will find much in common - like being able to stow BOTH rows of seats, but in a much more modern package.
I traded in a T&C - I've had a Chrysler mini-van since 1985 - this is the best one yet, by far.

Looking for a good story? How about a great comment from my wife (primary driver). After owning two T&C prior and also owning a Charger Scat Pack, I asked her if she had any regrets or complaints about buying our 18 PacHy. She said " I still don't like the knob that shifts the car and I wish this had the 392 hemi with also being a hybrid.) I think she might be addicted to Horsepower.

I originally bought my Pacifica to transport stuff and pets back and forth to our place in the mountains. We sold that house, but the Pacifica still proves too useful to consider letting go. Last week my wife wanted to upgrade the TV in the guest room. Being the male of the species, I took that to mean we upgrade the living room TV and move that TV to the guest room. The new 75" TV fit in the back of the Pacifica with no problem. In a few weeks, I'll probably be driving the office crew to the Christmas party in Phoenix. Nobody else has a car/truck that can comfortably haul seven people. Costco runs are child's play for this thing.

I have had issues with our Pacifica (new in January 2018) but I knew that this generation van would have some growing pains. So while I might grouse about the issues, I really do like my Pacifica Touring L. It carries a lot; with the towing package, the power generation and cooling systems are beefed up; acceleration is more than sufficient (who really needs to go from 0 to 60 in only 4.5 seconds as some cars will); the ride is smooth and quiet; the mileage is very good considering the size and shape of a minivan versus a small sedan; and when FCA gets the bugs all figured out (hope they will, lol) this van will be one of the better versions they built. Even with issues, I would recommend people buy one and enjoy it.

We have had our Pac Limited for 2 years, 20,000+ miles. Loving it. Only time to the dealer was for recalls (which weren't causing any problems) and a couple of oil changes. Been on 3-4 700 mile trips, mpg around 30. It's funny to me that some friends when they 1st see it don't realize that it is a mini van. LOL The new style was a major influence in buying. We often carry 5-6 adults. All are impressed with the comfort and ease of getting in and out. No SUV can come close. Would buy again in a heart beat. Maybe consider a hybrid the next time. Hope what ever you get will perform as well.

We have a '17 and other than recalls, no major issues. My wife and I love this vehicle and it's actually are first Chrysler product. We were a GM family and no regrets here. No one offers what this Minivan offers. All the newer crossovers are a joke compared to these. It's fun to drive, features found in luxury cars, and quiet and smooth handling. Hope you have a great experience as we have so far!!
