Editor's Overview

Much like the first Chrysler minivan, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has reinvented the family-hauling genre, giving us a sportier, more luxurious and technologically advanced minivan that anyone would be proud to own. Along with cutting-edge infotainment and driver-assist features, the Pacific also offers a class-exclusive plug-in hybrid model.

If the fob is still in car it will not lock. So you can't lock yourself out.

I love how much space there is and all the buttons to close and open the van doors. I love the Bluetooth and voice activation that makes driving safer when you need to use the phone. That start button on the fob is nice in hot summer and winter especially having little ones. It has temp control in the middle to keep it cool/warmer. I love how the heat is controlled on driver side and passenger side so if one person is hotter/cooler than the other they can adjust their side.

This is a great family vehicle. You save thousands compared to other makes, and more is offered for that smaller price tag.

I chose the Chrysler Pacifica for its affordable price and size to accommodate my growing family. It is reliable and I enjoy the added safety features, such as blind spot alert. The stow and go seating is a must have and a feature I use daily. One thing I don't like is the limited amount of storage space. I also have two car seats; thus, accessing the third row can be challenging. I wish the middle row seats could slide so people didn't have to climb through the trunk.

The most important thing is that it has everything you can think of, so much space and lots of safety features, on top of convenience ones.

Love the adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, stop and go braking, RES, navigation system, Sirius xm radio trial, stow and go seats, 1 touch sliding doors and also hands free doors and tailgate, all the space it has, Apple carplay, the built in rear window shades, etc. The only thing I don't like about it is something the computer/main screen is slow to load and sometimes the theater button does not work so I can not control the RES from the front.

Engine And Engine Cooling > Exhaust System > Emission Control > Catalytic Convertor Oct 18, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 18, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V740000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicles (PHEV). After the vehicle has been operating in PHEV propulsion mode, the gas-fueled engine may not restart properly resulting in unburned fuel entering the exhaust catalyst.
Consequence:
The improperly started engine could result in a loss of motive power increasing the risk of a crash or the unburned fuel in the catalyst may ignite increasing the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
FCA will notify owners, and dealers will update the powertrain controller module software, and inspect and replace the catalytic converter as necessary, free of charge. The recall began November 15, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U94.
