Year: 2017 Make: CHRYSLER Model: Pacifica
Average raiting 4.2
Very little storage space. You'll need a box to hold emergency items like jumper cables, flares, ice scraper, etc.
What were the designers thinking? I went to try out the Pacifica based on reviews. Adjusted seat and steering wheel but could not get into the van without undue difficulty as too low and cramped. Could not fit comfortably in front seat, roof too low, controls not placed correctly. Rear vision impeded by pillars and obstructions. Vehicle ground clearance is too low and long overhang beyond front wheels (not good for places that have a lot of rain/runoff.) Immediately tried out Dodge Grand Caravan. No problems with ingress or egress. Could adjust controls perfectly. Had several inches headroom. With rear seat/ headrests folded, had no problems with rear visibility. Conclusion - The Pacifica designers were all short people or maybe they only feel short people would buy one? . My sister-in-laws' husband had the exact same experience in another city/dealer and he is shorter/larger than I am (I am 6'2''.) Why design a minivan only for shorter people????
We've had the Limited Pacifica for about 6 weeks and have put about 3,000 miles and we all love it! The front seats are super comfortable and feels like a luxury car. Both my husband and I love the drive. The van feels very solid, no rattling at all. We did a very extended test drive on our van to make sure of this because of some of the reviews I've read. No issues. I would agree that the second row seats are not quite as comfortable the Honda or the Toyota. Our kids don't seem to notice or mind and we love the stow and go option. That was a huge factor for us and I have used it multiple times. Actually our kids like the middle row stowed and sit in the 3rd row. I've seen multiple folks mention the lack of 3rd row TV's. Every kid can see a screen. Also there are USB jacks in the rear for iPads, you could always but iPad/kindle holders behind each seat if you wanted. We love they van!
CarReviewer 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited with Mocha interior, advanced safety tech, towing, 20" tires drives better than anything I compared in it's price range and even ones that can cost more. It has more features and free XM Sirius for a year, 5 years Travel Link, 0%, rebates, etc. You get a lot for your money when compared to other vehicles. Drives like a very good handling car. Traded in 2010 Ford Flex Limited Ecoboost which was a very good vehicle but Pacifica is better. Well designed minivan, very comfortable, handles well, quiet, smooth driving, good gas mileage, very good stereo, easy to use Nav, great looking inside and out, actually fun and enjoyable to drive, roomy, a lot of storage area, stow and go seats, safety features and more. Did a lot of research for many months even before Pacifica was available and test drove many vehicles including redesigned Mazda CX9, Infiniti, Explorer, Durango, Grand Cherokee, Nissan Pathfinder, Acura MDX, Toyota Highlander, Lexus 350 and others. Drove other minivans in past and didn't care for most interior styling. Pacifica drives better than crossovers. Doesn't seem floaty on highways like some crossovers. Very planted. You don't think your driving a minivan. Very well designed vehicle and put together well with quality looks and parts. So far extremely happy. I don't work for a dealership. Just a very satisfied consumer and I look forward to taking drives in my new Pacifica. I owned a first year model 2005 Chrysler 300C for over 8 years with no problems other than a knob breaking on NAV when they had knobs and got a very good trade in on a leftover 2012 Chrysler 300C Luxury Series I bought in 2013 - a very good vehicle as well. Even though one always wonders about reliability and buying first year cars, I've had good luck with Chryslers and they keep getting better.
