#105 of 107 Purchased (Brand new 2008 Pacifica)

Well when I purchased my Pacifica back in 2008 I was actually working at the Larry H Miller Chrysler&Jeep Dealer me and my wife both agreed on getting the Pacifica at the time it had the space we needed for the kids but now just recently my Vehicle started to run like crap it first started out with the car would die when I push on the breaks to come to a stop or sometimes when i'm driving I can feel the vehicle like it wanted to die and now it's there is something new now it is having trouble trying to start and it's driving me nuts and I really don't want to take it in to get service cause i know i'll get charged an arm and a leg just for them to let it sit in the shop for 4 hours than finally take a look at it which it'll probably only take 30mins to look at it. if anyone has any ideas to work on a pacifica please post back i would rather take the time fix it my self than take it in... lol I no longer work for Larry H Miller but if I did I would diffinitly NOT RECOMMEND THIS VEHICLE TO ANYONE it is a big pain in the but

Our 2007 has done pretty well and we did get the LifeTime Powertarin Warranty, and the LifeTime Max Care Service Contract> I have kept every repair or part put on our PAc. We now have 116,400 miles on it. If we had just a regular 100,000 mile warranty I would have most likely traded it in, because I really want as much warranty repair covered as possible.
We bought our PAC Aug. 31, 2007. I have very serious health problems and we put on at least 2,500 miles a month and we need a very dependable allwheel drive vehicle. So the PACfits out need.
There are some who have had very poor service from the problems they have had with their PAC. Most of those with really serious issues had a 2007, as it was the very first year for the 4. L engine and the 6 speed automatic transmission. That's a lot to be new in a vehicle. By the way the 4. L engine ended production in 2010 and it was in the Caravan and Town & Country. Now they all have the 3.6 L DOHC that really is quick and does real well in mpg.
I think your best be is to have the dealer check it out at another dealer other than the one you mentioned. Ihpe this helps and all works out for you.

I purchased a brand new 2008 Pacifica Touring WP Chrysler Signature Series in March 2009. It sat on the dealer's lot since it was manufactured in October 2007. It only has 33,000 miles on it today and is still under the original 3/36 warranty, probably one of the last Pacifica's still under the original 3/36 warranty.
The 2008 model year has a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty for the original owner. If you are the original owner, I would take it to the dealer because it could be a powertrain issue. There is a $0 deductible on the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. This is why I plan on keeping my Pacifica for a lifetime. All original Pacifica owners with a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty have a real gift from Chrysler. I would hang on to your Pacifica and utilize your Lifetime Powertrain Warranty.
