Took the 2018 pacifica from charleston Sc to natural bridge VA for my sisters wedding. All in all I actually enjoyed driving it (I'm the guy that bought the 17 ram ecodiesel and the pacifica 馃檪 ). Typically 2 downshifts going up the bigger hills netted 3k rpm but it pulled very well, powertrain setup is darn close to perfect. Mileage wise I had it at 30 mpg before we hit the mountains, by the time we stopped I had it at 31.1 going through the mountains. Total trip ended up being at 27 but I was running a little faster and could have had some wind on the way back. All in all I was happy with the ride and the mileage even though it's the wifes lol. I was disappointed when i saw that she was only averaging 20 for her work ride when I got in though. Trip was about 800 miles, it now has about 2300 miles on it.

20 MPG is all I get too. :| I鈥檓 hoping that will change once I do a long trip as well.

I'm sure it will, my wife's work trip is about 9 miles with stop and go. She was averaging 26 with the 2015 crv she had. That's why the 20 was a bit of a surprise but is probably still about right.
