Product Reviews

Welcome to Consumer Reports.

We’re so glad to have you as a member. You now have access to benefits that can help you choose right, be safe and stay informed.
The six-passenger Pacifica is very carlike for an SUV. Essentially a tall wagon, it provides a comfortable ride and nimble handling. We generally liked its interior versatility, but with only two seats in the second row, passenger capacity is reduced to four if you fold the third-row seat to carry cargo. Five-passenger versions with three seats in the second-row were added for 2005.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

“This is a very comfortable car - seats are comfy and heated; can be easily adjusted in numerous positions. This is especially appreciated on long road trips”

Anonymous, MD (2005 Chrysler Pacifica)

“Car is NOT too low to ground. Easy in and out appreciated the older I get.”

Anonymous, AL (2005 Chrysler Pacifica)

“It's the perfect height to slide in and out of. No bending down or climbing up and seat controls are great. Love that you actually can sit straight up and raise and lower seat straight up or down without reclining, instead.”

Anonymous, CA (2005 Chrysler Pacifica)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
