I actually prefer the drl's that are integrated into the amber turn signal bulbs. They actually used these on some of the 2nd generation Caravans and Voyagers. GM uses this feature on their FWD minivans (Venture/Uplander,Montana etc)as well as Buick Century/Regal, Chev Camaro/Pont Firebird and some Corvettes. I think the amber versions stand out more than the ones integrated into the headlights. Wish I could figure out a way to do this on my 2005 Pacifica.

TO BAD CHRYSLER DOESN'T PUT A 5.7 L HEMI IN THE PACIFICA LIKE THE 300 C,MAGNUM,ETC.IF A JEEP CHEROKEE CAN GET A HEMI ,A PACIFICA SHOULD HAVE ONE TOO!

Be ware that Pacifica is a FWD vehicle and cannot handle a Hemi. Even for the AWD version it's too much, and can cause lots of torque steer problems. All vehicles you mentiond are RWD cars so the HEMI is not a problem for them.

I just had the dealer say that we can't even have the automactic headlights added at the service department for our 2006 Touring model. I was completely surprised to find out the model and package options we purchased didn't include this feature. Didn't even think we had to ask. I found out through on-line search of models and options that this was only for the AWD models as you described. How Chyrsler chose to limit this to only AWD models is beyond me. I've sent a letter to Chrysler customer service to confirm that this can't be added at the dealership after the fact.

I picked up my new 2007 Touring FWD on Friday evening. I've been enjoying it ever since. Drove it to Virginia and back yesterday and have seen very reasonable MPG. I look forward to sharing more in the various Pacifica forums. After traveling I can say, FOR ME, the only thing I'd enjoy is about 8-10 more cubic feet of room behind the third row seats.

Even 4"-5" more length back there would be a help. (10cuft would require extending it by at least a foot and I doubt they would do that.) Especially if they can raise the roof over the back row to substantially increase head room. You need to be really short to fit in the 3rd row of my 2004.

I'm not so sure of that... I was parked today next to a Town and Country and they are comparable heights--the Pacifica is a bit shorter. It seems that they managed to get considerable room behind the minivan third row (20plus cubic feet if I recall) by utilizing the floor pan. The Pacifica doesn't make us of the space "down low". Again--it's not something that was a deal breaker but just a touch more space back there (even the 4-5" inches you suggest) would be welcome! My daughter can't get her friends AND all their sleepover necessities in comfortably!! LOL

I don't know that there is much space below the bumper line as you describe. The spare tire is under there too.

We're (probably) about to order a Limited AWD. (The price and features are two compelling reasons compared to the Saturn Outlook, Acura MDX, upcoming Mazda CX-9, Audi Q7, etc.) In 2006 there was a stand alone option for a full size spare tire that is not available on the 2007 models. I'm wondering if anyone knows if the underside of the PAC has been changed that would not allow me to substitute a full sized spare. For some reason, is the full-diameter "doughnut" the only thing that will fit under the rear of the car?

My guess would be that the new dual exhaust doesn't allow room for the full size spare.
