I purchased a used '06 T&C Touring. It the 6th or 7th Chrylser/Dodge van that I havehad. No problems. I have always liked Chrysler vans and had a 2002 when I had the Pacifica because I needed something to haul my dogs around in. I bought the Pacifica because it was a comfortable, good looking, good handling car, and I wanted to spoil myself, but it was all down hill after 30 days. I bought it because my daughter has a 2005. She loves it and has had minimal problems with the exception that it keeps burning out headlights. I have already replaced the wiring harnesses at the dealer's suggestion, but nothing improved. At least 6 bulbs on each side.

If you are asking how to do this, you need to remove the intake manifold. It is about a 1.5 hour job according to Mitchells.

Dear '08: It seems as though we're sisters (brothers?). Anyways, I've had all the same problems. I love the way my car looks but as far as I'm concerned the engine's a piece of crap. LSS (long story short), when I last brought my car in they just happened to have the Chrsyler Rep visiting. He took my '08 Pac for a spin. Apparently he said that everything was "normal" and that I wouldn't be "hurting" the car if I kept hearing that noise, etc. B.S.
The car is a pile of *&(*($#%. I'm not done yet, I'm just biding my time. They could take it back now, with oh, say, about 7K miles, or they can wait, til, I have had my complete fill at say, oh, about 20K. Either way, they ARE getting it back.
They know they have a lemon on their plate they just ain't gonna admit it....yet.

I filed with the National Center for Dispute Settlement.
Their address is:22500 Metropolitan Parkway
Clinton Township, MI 48035
Make certain that you have all of your paperwork. Filing with them starts the arbitration process. I had an independent garage owner drive my car and write a report. I also had reports from others who had driven the car, and NCDS had an independent inspector drive my car before and after repairs. It took three filings but Chrysler finally bought my car back with no mileage charge.
That finally happened after a Chrysler attorney took my car to the dealer of her choice and neglected to tell them all of the reasons why the car was there.

I joined ths forum after I purchased my Pac Ltd in March. I purchased it used from a Chrysler-Dodge Dealer for what I thought was a very fair price. Now I'm reading all of these problems and very concerned with future repair costs/issues. Would this suit get Chrysler to buy back the vehicles regardless or have a long list of issues?
It may seem like a dumb question, but if the issues are there, they will happen sooner or later right?
