My name is Russ Klass, and I live in Orchard Park, NY (near Buffalo).
We took delivery of our Bright Silver/Taupe Pacifica on May 3rd, paying dealer invoice price.
MSRP is $40,385, so it is pretty well loaded.
Additions so far are wood dash kit (woostrim.com), rear bumper step and cargo envelope (Mopar), and a stainless steel exhaust tip (stylinconcepts.com).
Only minor problem in the first 1,200 miles was a crecked center-dash speaker which was quickly replaced.
The Pacifica follows two 300Ms, and we are very satisfied with it so far.

My name is Charlee Smith and my wife Sandee and I live in Templeton, CA. We bought our Satin Jade w/ light toupe-jade interior Pacifica on April 14 for the same MSRP as Russ. We are extremely happy with it. We considered and tested the Nissan Murrano, Accura MDX, Volvo XC-90 and Lexus RX-330. The Pacifica was an easy choice, with the RX-330 in second. We have yet to see another Pacifica on the road, even on our trip to So. Calif. last week. I like something different, but my wife always says "different doesn't mean better". In this case, different is the best.

Hi my name is Machelle Vanderlick and I live outside of Tampa Fl, in the clearwater area, I bought my pacifica, beginning of may, I was driving a bmw wagon, and I commute with my 2 kids daily, 60 miles +- daily, the wagon was getting too cramped with not enough bells and whistles for what I paid for it, ( I had only owned it for 4 months)when I went back to the bmw dealer to trade in and possibly upgrade to the suv, I was very upset with run around I was getting, and the BMW suv in it's self, less room (cargo) than the wagon, thus I went shopping( women love to do this) In the back of my mind I knew the pacifica was getting out and I called a few local dealers. the 2nd dealer I went to had one in stock LOADED, if I was going to look at one, it had to have EVERYTHING, I needed, needless to say I fell in love, the car was superb over the BMW, and the room and bells and whistles(dvd) navigational system are great!!!!!, I now have 960 miles and am averaging 15.8 MPG it keeps going up!!!. The only thing I did right away was take out one of my 2nd row seats allowing an aisle for my one kid to get to the rear and allowing the other into the 2nd row seat(still in baby seat), also allows me to just open rear passenger door and throw stuff in, ie, groceries etc... sorry my tale is soooo long, I just have so much too brag about and want to share my excitement and joy of owning the pacifica and being the new kid on my block with something that everybodies wondering, What is it?

Welcome Pacifica owners!
I'll have to admit that I've yet to see one on the road in my area. I may have to drive by a dealership and check one out.
If you're concerned about privacy issues, you don't have to post your full name and/or home city. First name and home state is sufficient.

Thank you Karen for setting this up. I know that this is just the beginning of the club, but trust we will have some great discussions. My name is Dennis and I purchased a Pacifica just over a week ago. I and everyone I have shown it to are very impressed with it. I am looking forward to seeing what additional accessories become available to personalize the cruiser. I will be embarking on a cross US trip on June 3 moving our 2 cats in the Pacifica from the San Francisco area to Naples, FL. I am looking forward to a fun trip in our new car.

My name is Doug and we live in the Boston area. Took delivery of an Inferno Red Pacifica about a month ago and have already racked up 3K miles. What a beautiful design. Thanks Karen for setting this up. I look forward to checking in frequently.

I'm Jerry and i live in the suburbs in greater seattle. The pacifica has been a great addition to the family, now i can ferry my twin girls in style and not compromise driver legroom (i'm tall). I share a butane blue AWD pacifica with my wife.
#10 of 155 So far loving our Pacifica

I'm Artie and we took delivery of a Midnight Blue AWD fully loaded minus the Navigation system on May 10th. I'm hoping that this will provide many years of happy driving and utility here in the Pacific Northwest as we travel both to the coast and Mt. Hood on a regular basis. I'm jealous that it is the wife's car. I love to drive it when I can.
