Default Opinions on the Pacifica

I know the talks around here are mostly around (and in support of) GM products... but what do you all think about the new Chrysler Pacifica? I love the wide and sporty stance, sleek lines, and luxury plus sporty features. I don't know much about the performance specs, but it'* the best looking new SUV out there lookin' IMO!

I agree it is a very sharp looking crossover vehicle (not sport ut. or mini-van). The only thing that I don't care for, and it seems to be more and more prevelant on DCX products, is the shortness of the windows. There'* so much door panel, and so little window! Otherwise, a good look'n vehicle!

I've been in one, they can be awesome as far as features go...but as far as actually driving one, I wouldn't know.

ther're ok. They have a good engine, but not the right tranny to properly take advantage of it'* 250 horses. I'm really split. I want to throw-up when ever I see them in a picture, but then when I see one in person, my jaw drops.....

They seem allright, mechanically speaking. I havent seen any recalls on them. Still cant decide if their tacky or classy. Definately not an SUV though.

Hell, I believe it. Those bumpers just arent metal and plastic anymore.

I've driven one. They ride very nice, interior is awesome (I love the little computer screen thinger in the dash).

However it is not very quick, it definatly lacks in the power department. Any more questions LMK and I'll answer them as best I can (I've only driven one a handful of times, so I won't know all the little quirks)

I drove one when I was vallet parking once. It didn't seem to have the get up and go that I expected, but also it was still cold...

I must say though, some of the features in those things are SWEET. As dumb as this may sound, the clock is really sweet
