I'm finally back to report my purchase a week ago Monday of a brand new Pacifica! I got the Magnesium Pearl (kind of a charcoal green color) from Champion Chrysler. Their quote was the best and they had the color I wanted. I liked some other colors equally well like the Linen Gold and Butane (light) Blue, but I went with this one because it's far less common. In fact, I probably like the Butane Blue the best, but it's not offered in the base model.
The quote I got was about $22.2K with leather (the aftermarket kind which is supposed to be better), a price that included the current $3000 rebate offer. But, I ended up doing something I never expected to do - I went with the lease. On a lease, they increased the rebate another $1000 plus the financing rate for the 3-year lease term was just a tiny fraction over 0%. Furthermore, there's the additional (but unlikely for me) option that if I just don't want to keep it after 3 years, I can walk away from it. All in all, it just seemed like a no-brainer. The payments are super low and having the $11K available to pay it off 3 years from now shouldn't be an issue.
So to sum it all up, $21.2K + leather + 0.03% interest = one happy customer!

One thought you triggered in my mind is that the main reason I began looking at SUVs is that I want to have something larger for when we take road trips, something we tend to do several times per year.
Look at a minivan. We went from a 1995 Suburban to a 2006 Odyssey and feel that we have not lost any room and the Odyssey actually may be more comfortable.
