[email protected] I just posted the exact same problem on our 2018 Pacifica Touring Limited. Ours starts exactly at 2000 rpm and the dealership states they can’t hear anything. Mine to also sounds like a truck.

smithtg Have the same issue. Dealer service thinks it's normal, but when I ask him to ride in it with me then take a new one for a ride to compare, he won't do it.

Jerith Like with any vehicle, the groaning you hear during heavy acceleration is your wallet.

Loud, Groaning Acceleration

I did some searching around and didn't see any recent posts about this, so apologies if there's already a thread. My wife and I bought a 2017 Pacifica Touring L (gas engine) a few months ago, Jan 2019. It only had 5k miles. We've been really enjoying it, but the one thing that stands out to me is how loud and groaning the acceleration has been. Especially when the RPM is around 2k. It's not like it's totally unbearable or anything, but it sounds more like a truck or something than a decent trim level van.

We've still under warranty and I'll probably have the dealer look at it once I can get back over to them, but curious if anyone else has experienced anything like this and what they did about it.
