2008 Chrysler Pacifica Problems
The engine may develop a ticking noise, often caused by a broken retaining pin on the rocker arm shaft. When the pin breaks, the shaft can spin blocking the oil passage the rocker arms (which causes the ticking noise). The rocker arm shafts, rocker arms, and pedestals (sold as a kit) are commonly replaced in order to correct this condition.
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.
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.

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.
