I pick up my car on Thursday.
Final price is 30000, at the same day i still think about trade my ford to dealer or not, cause they only pay me 5000..... than suddenly one of my friend call me up, tell me his car got total 2 days ago. the Insurance company will pay him $7000 for it. than i check it on edmund bluebook my ford trade in value is $7800I sell it to my friend for $7000. so i make a good deal on it
Than on Friday one of my friend he is a guy who own a body shop. he tell me one of his customer buy a set of H7 HID try to put it on his car, but it not working because have some circuit to protect the power ,, ... whatever is not work on his car, so he want to sell it for $200 ...hhheeeeeeeeeee i tell my friend i will try it first before i pay for it, so i put it on my car and test it, it works great. it is much much much better than the orginal light.
SO now I feel is look like everything is ready for my new Pacifica.
I love it a lot

My name is Gene and I am from Buffalo, NY. My wife wanted a mini-van, and I did not. We met in the middle by selecting the stylish/sporty Pacifica.
We took delivery of our 2005 Inferno Red, Taupe Leather interior, FWD, Navigation and DVD Pacifica on June 11, 2005. We paid $29,000 something after getting our Chrysler discount which is 1% below invoice. (My wife works for GEICO, and they offer a deal for purchasing any Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicle)
It's a great looking vehicle, and will meet our needs as parents of a two year old. My wife and I are under 30 years old, and this vehicle is very much luxury for the price point.
I hope we have much success.

Well I got 27k on it now and after the PTO TSB repair, no issues, Gas mileage at varying speeds is over 20mpg on the highway. ~400 mile trips seem to use 17.4 gallons. I seems to average approximately 21.4 on these trips. No major issues have shown up.

Well, my last trip the PAC used 20 gallons to make the trip and so it averaged 18 mpg - maybe I hit the pedal too hard?

Hello all, my name is Jay Lloyd and I recently purchased a Midnight Blue Pacifica. I live in Vacaville, CA and I love my new car. I have a two year old with another baby on the way. This was a great investment. I've tried to get little things to help spruce it up like the chrome tailpipe, and the Pacifica grocery pouch for the trunk area. Chrysler.com has some ideas for it but mostly after market purchases. I got plenty of room seeing as though I'm six foot five. The gas out here is crazy but it does well on a full tank. Other than that, It's been a great vehicle.

I'm not trying to burst your bubble,but. I jumped on the 2004 FWD.Could not wait to get it. Had problems with guide arm bushings going bad. Had to be replaced,both right and left at 5000 miles. I traded it when the 2005 Touring became available. I had the same problem with the 05 at 10,000 miles noises when turning in front end. No recall.From CHRYSLER.
I went online the other night to see the Bluebook,of this $33000.00 vehicle, with no dvd ,no sunroff, but everything else. I traded it yesterday, and got $19000.00 from a Lexus dealer. $1000.00 DOLLARS over bluebook. No damage in excellent condition, lest than a year old. Hope you don't have this problem, but the depreciation of value made me mad.

I don't think anyone paid $33,000 for any FWD Pacifica with no DVD, no sunroof, but everything else. I paid $25,400 for just the vehicle you described, with leather.It was new.
People (and car magazines and, yes ,Edmunds.com) throw MSRP's around like they mean something........They don't mean a damn thing. At the end of the day, what matters is supply and demand , and the price you actually pay to drive the whatever it is home to your garage.....
So let's all agree, no trade value, that $33,000 doesn't mean anything at all. Period............................
