Chrysler Pacifica owners have reported 156 problems related to power train (under the power train category).
I purchased my new vehicle and inside of 2 months I had two major problems. I went shopping and when I arrived at my destination and tried to park the car would not shift into park. No matter how long I waited or slowly or quickly I turned the shifting knob it would not shift into park. The parking break was also behaving strangely and would disengage on it's own as I tried to troubleshoot the problem. I had to keep my foot on the break pedal to keep the car from rolling away. My husband and I decided to try turning the car off in the hope that the matter would resolve itself and that is when we discovered that the car would not shut down. No matter what we did it would not turn off or shift into park. We immediately drove to the dealership and dropped the car off since we had no idea what else we could do and it was a tremendous safety issue. Today September 20, 2016 I experienced another electrical parking problem. While I was driving in very light traffic and a safe distance away from other cars the emergency breaking alarm went off. I was in the middle of crossing an intersection when the alarm started blaring and "break" flashed in large red letters. In my opinion there was no reason for that warning and I feel that this issue might be somehow tied to the other issues listed above. The first issues occured on 07-10-2016.

The engine light came on. The car would not accelerate over 25 mph. It kept feeling as if it was stalling when stopped at light and trying to accelerate. Hard to go up inclines. After being parked for 4 hours we noticed the car was smoking. I called the fire department who discovered that the insulation and the engine was smoldering. It is now at excalibur being looked at. I was driving on a city street when this happened. When we discovered the car was smoking, it had been parked for four hours.

The engine mounts have broken, and been replaced, and broke again. The floorboard, has rusted through on the drivers side, and the frame is rusting out. The suspension is breaking and has now blow out 2 tires. The electrical panel /dash, doesn't work and causes other problems. I don't live by salt water and have been informed that this is not a new problem with this make/model. Gas fumes come up through the floorboard, and I have been dealing with this since I took it off of the dealership. I am a single mom of 3,and am not finding help from anyone. Can you please help me?.
Won't let me pump gas in with out it constantly clicking off, when gas gage hits half it drops with in seconds. Traction control light engine light low and high tire pressure stays on but nothing shows on tester. Front end does a lot of popping, and clanking while driving even while turning and stopping.
Oil light continues to come on (red) for no reason. I've been told the power transfer unit is going out.
The cooling system for the car does not work correctly. After a steady idle of about 5 minutes, the car will begin to get hot and the fans will kick on. Two minutes later it will do it again. The system it self seems ok, but the fan is constantly on and off. The motor get s so hot that the hood on my car is starting to turn. Next is the airbags. The airbag light for the passenger side is always on indicating a failure. The bag has never been deployed? now the biggest problem is the top end of the motor. My check engine lights keeps coming on. Keeps saying misfire on cylinder 4. Everything has been replaced and I still get this code? my vehicle gets it regular maintenance and my mechanic said my car should not having these problems.
Frame is rusting under the engine and service bay at tire dealer said it was unsafe.
Shortly after starting and driving the car, within a couple of minutes, the car completely stops running with no warning lights. Just dies while driving as if the ignition was just turned off. This has happened multiple times causing a significant safety hazard as the power brakes and steering immediately stop working. The car is under an extended manufacturer¿s bumper-to-bumper warranty so the repair should be covered as it is a clear defect. Apparently, because the car just stopped, no codes were recorded as to the nature of the problem. Hence, the dealer was unable to identify a problem. The dealer recommended that the cost of a suspected repair be made by the owner because they could not definitely define the problem as necessary to be reimbursed under the warranty. Recommended repair was done at owner¿s cost yet the same thing happened again. An earlier model of this car had a recall to repair a similar if not identical problem.
I went to get the 2005 chrystler Pacifica inspected and was told by the mechanic that the bottom was rusted so badly that the engine would fall out, and further that the year make and model was under recall for the same problem, the bottom rusting out horribly. I called chrystler with the VIN # and was told this 1 wasn't part of the recall even though it was the same year and make of the recall. I owe 4,400$ on the car and now am told the repairs would exceed 5,000$. I financed it for 6,455$ at the start. I'm disabled and greatly in need of help, I don't know what to do I have made a slew of calls to no avail at this point and continue to make payments as I don't want to ruin my credit, please help me, I don't know what to do.

Was driving down the street and heard a load bang when drivers side of car dropped down onto front tire. Car abruptly swerved into lane with approaching traffic. Vehicle stopped against the curb and oncoming traffic stopped in time. We towed vehicle to a friends business for inspecting and it was discovered the engine cradle had rotted out from rust. We called local dealer and was asked for our v. I. N # and was told our car was not part of recall because it was not built within a few weeks window. In searching more information online we found this is a huge issue on these cars. Please advise.
Upper housing shock underneath the hood rotted off the side wall. Other side starting to rot off to.
I had my 2007 Pacifica in park position with the engine on. I put my foot on the brake to reverse the car out of parking space. The gear shift lever would not release and go into reverse. I had to have the car towed to the dealer to repair. Cost me over $500 (part #4880276-ab shifter t21030407). Being stuck in traffic is very dangerous.

Purchased car used with less than 85k miles. When I went to get it state inspected 1 week after purchase I was informed that the car is unsafe to drive due to engine cradle was rusted out. Repair estimates range from $3300 to over $4000. The car is less than 10 years old and under 100k miles. No help from the manufacturer. Many others with the same situation. This could be a potential life threatening situation for myself and my family. Car is worth as much as the repairs. The manufacturer should be made to make this right. Bad product. Even partial help with the repairs would help. Very disappointed in "american made".

Vehicle engine cradle sub-frame is rotting through and nearly separating one portion from another. This will at some point in time fail in a catastrophic manner. This defect seems to be well documented on numerous web sites and fiat Chrysler group is aware of this problem and makes like the problem is with only a very limited number of vehicles which is clearly not the case. They have an extended warranty of note for this very problem, but is limiting it to a very few cars manufactured between a very limited timeframe from late 2004 to early 2005, all others are excluded in spite of the fact that numerous Pacifica's are noted as having this problem. This repair is an approx. $3000 repair that Chrysler is ignoring the safety of the owners and families of these cars and those driving around them.
We just bought our 2005 Chrysler Pacifica not to long ago, and the check engine light comes on and stays on, it also affects our gas milage, we had it checked and that's when we found out that there is a recall on the gas sensor in the tank, and every now and again when we make left hand turns it dies on us. We have a child with multiple disabilities and we need a vehicle that is going to be safe to get him to his appointments.
I took my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica in to a Chrysler dealership because I couldn't pass the IL emissions test. I was told that my subframe was very rusted and holes were in it. He told me that they fixed my car so I can pass emissions ($900) and basically told me to drive it for a few months and get rid of it. I asked him how much it would be to fix it and he told me, it would be very expensive. I did my research and there are a lot of people with the same problem. There is a recall for 04-05 Pacificas and after looking at pictures of other subframes for 04-05 models, they look just like mine (rusted w/holes). 06 Pacificas should also be in the recall. I did not call Chrysler because I felt I would get the same response as others. So now I have to pray every time I drive the vehicle that the subframe doesn't break. I still owe on the vehicle and can't afford another. Please do something!.
Today I was told that the engine cradle of my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica with 125214 miles was rusted out and needs to be replaced, will not pass nys inspection. Online I read that Chrysler is only are covering the 2004 and 2005 models. This is a extreme safety problem just like the defects in the 2004 and 2005 that Chrysler needs to cover.
