Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Engine cradle rot is a serious problem in the 2004-05 Chrysler Pacifica. Chrysler admits they didn't apply enough coating to the vehicle's sub-frame during assembly, but only offered to cover a very small portion of the vehicles they messed up.

So what happens when your engine cradle rots? Well, the engine could fall out for starters. It could also cause problems with the suspension and other components but did I mention THE ENGINE CAN FALL OUT? The worst part is you might not know because there's no way to see the problem without getting under the car.

If you have a 2004-05 Pacifica, make sure to have your mechanic inspect your sub-frame for rust and corrosion.

2004 Chrysler Pacifica Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 102004

Pacifica SW 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles


Many lockout service calls. Bought new keys, FOBs, roadside assistance service membership. Probably $700 is conservative in 11 yr old car.

problem #1

Apr 012008


  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles

In addition to this, you have to push the unlock button about five times to get the driver door to unlock. A real pain with little kids and when it's raining, etc. The car also had the electric gas gauge go out three times within the first two years. At least this was under warranty.
