Chrysler Pacifica owners have reported a total of 4,970 problems for their cars built in the 10 model years listed in the chart below. The chart shows the number of problems reported across all service years for each given model year of the Chrysler Pacifica. The 2005 Chrysler Pacifica cars have the most problems reported (1,529 problems).
The following chart shows the 26 most common problems for Chrysler Pacifica cars. The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's engine and engine cooling (1,108 problems). The second most common problem is related to the vehicle's structure (711 problems).
|Problem Category||Number of Problems|
|Engine And Engine Cooling|
|Other Fuel System|
|Vehicle Speed Control|
|Gasoline Fuel System|
|Electronic Stability Control|
|Unknown Or Other|
|Traction Control System|
|Back Over Prevention|
It would not be fair to compare the Chrysler Pacifica of an older model year to newer model years since older vehicles have been in service longer and thus are expected to have more problems. In order to compare the reliability across Pacifica model years, we use the PPMY index which is defined as the problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year. A smaller PPMY index indicates greater reliability of the given model year cars.
PPMY = P / S / Y * 1000,
where P = total problems reported during the life of a Chrysler Pacifica model year; S = total units sold of the model year; Y = years since the debut of the model year (the age of the vehicle).
The results are shown in Table 3.
Another way to measure the reliability across the model years of the Chrysler Pacifica is to use the total number of problems reported during the vehicle's first year in service, as shown in the Table 4.
