We own a 2017 Pacifica with 31K miles. We bought it brand new. We have had no issues whatsoever until we hit 30K miles. Then, the issues began. The newest issue that we just noticed is that there is a clunking-thumping noise coming from the driver's side front wheel well. This is felt the most when driving at slow speeds of 18-22 miles per hour. The driver can feel the thumping coming from under the left foot when placed close to the wheel well. The noise frequency follows the road surface's texture and is different than the consistent clicking type of sound one might get due to the rolling of the wheel. We have just gotten our Pacifica back from the shop after 2 weeks to fix the bubbling paint issue on the hood, and now we have to bring it back again for another issue. I hope the dealer can figure out what is wrong with the car and fix it quickly, otherwise I am seriously considering trading it in for another brand vehicle before our warranty is up. We still love our Pacifica, but reliability and safety trumps everything.

Has anyone else had a similar issue? Thanks.
Just got our 2020 Pacifica (less than 5k miles on it) and started hearing exactly what you describe. Will take to the dealer next weekend.

Thanks for the detailed description on your issue.

I had to take mine back two weeks later from the other listed repairs all was good and it started again. They replaced the lower control arm, sound has not come back since. While they had it apart they did the hub bearing TSB on both sides being they already had one side fully apart. That TSB was listed at 14 hours. YIKES! Glad it was under warranty.

Do you have any information on the hub bearing TSB? Is is only for Hybrids? My 2018 gas sounds like the bearing is going on the drivers side.

As for this clunking noise from the front end of your late model Pacifica, I had that on my used 2018 with 25,000 miles. It was especially noticeable driving on a unpaved driveway. I remember reading a long term test of a Pacifica in Motor Trend before buying mine and they mentioned the dealer replaced the front sway bar links. So I just ordered Moog sway bar links from Rock Auto. They are more heavy duty than OE and have grease fittings. Since I replaced these, I've had no more clunking. They are less expensive than the OE links as well. I hope that this info helps.

So I’m starting to wonder if this is my problem. Even at slow speeds, when I ease off the accelerator, I immediately here the think, almost like something dropping and bouncing under my left resting foot on driver’s side. Beyond frustrated.
