2008 Chrysler Pacifica Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Static discharge and/or loose wire connections could cause problems with the front power seat memory, seat heaters, and adjustable pedals. Revised seat modules are available that resist the affects of static discharge.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Static discharge through the right (passenger) front door handle can result in a loss of functionality from the right front door switches, power mirrors, seat controls, and door locks. There is a revised door handle which is more static resistant. A new door module may be needed if the module does not reset properly.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

If the cup holder lid will not stay closed, a lid spring was released so replacing the entire assembly should not be necessary.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

"False" trouble codes may cause erroneous illumination of the Check Engine Light. Updating the PCM software can often correct this concern.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

If the moon roof makes a thumping noise moving from the closed to the vent position, using some lubricant (available from Dodge) on the moon roof seal can solve the problem.

2008 Chrysler Pacifica Reviews

I own a 2007 Pacifica Touring. Purchased it with 17,000 miles on it, as it was a rental vehicle. I have 104k on it now. It has leather seats, dual air, rear air, and a nice stereo. I have owned this car for 5 years, and the only problems I have had is the "skreem" module failed at 45k, leaving me stranded in my driveway, and the dreaded shifter link spring that broke at 100k. Also, motor mounts replaced at 45k with the skreem module. Other than those three issues, I have not had any other problems. I get 20mpg in mixed city driving, and 26 on the hwy loaded down with passengers and cargo. Like this vehicle a lot.

Unfortunately, we have most every review beat...
We purchased our '06 Pacifica in late '09 with low miles. We loved the look and the 50/50 rear seats for our growing family of 5 (now 6)
It started with our engine blowing in 2011, that repair cost us a cool 5k. Shortly after that, the A/C went out in the middle of summer where our temps reach up into the 100's. Luckily a family friend fixed that for us but it was still a couple hundred out of pocket. Shortly after that, the motor mount gave out, luckily it was under warranty due to the engine being replaced, but it was scary because it had happened so soon after the repair. When they were replacing said motor mount, our mechanic noticed play on both tie rods, needless to say they were replaced as well...costing us another few hundred dollars. This last month the back hatch won't close properly or stay up when opened (hurts like heck when landing on your head...) and the display screen for our radio is out. Which brings me to today, when our motor mounts broke...again! Two words, MONEY PIT! The other words I have to describe this vehicle all contain 4 letters and may not be appropriate.

DON'T EVER BUY A PACIFICA "ALL LEMONS" HAVE TO WAIT MONTHS FOR PARTS ESPECIALLY AT VALITON'S KINGWOOD,WEST VIRGINIA WHEN I BROUGHT THE LIFETIME WARRANTY I DIDN'T KNOW THAT IT WOULD TAKE A LIFETIME TO GET THE PARTS(!!!! I AGREE WITH THOSE THAT SAID A WASTE OF MONEY FOR SURE!!!
