I had heard about Chrysler/Jeep transmission problems, but went ahead anyway with the purchase. Well, here I sit on the side of the road with my Pacifica not able to drive anywhere. The car made a terrible grinding sound, then I immediately pulled over and when I tried to put it in Park or shut it off, nothing happened. Engine was revving to high for Park. After about 30-45 seconds I was able to switch to park, but the car rolls back (I'm on a hill) like it's in neutral. If I put it in drive I just hear a grinding sound. I'm no mechanic, but I would say the transmission is broken. Once it's towed in who knows how long it will take to repair. Loved the Pacifica until the transmission stories I have read about have come true. By the way, since the dealer I'm taking the car to wasn't the one I purchased it from because I moved recently, they won't give a loaner. I called Chrysler Care through my assist in the car and they "escalated it to their rental car area". Hopefully they will do something. Will keep you updated on what happens.
