CarComplaints.com 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

Other than the fact that both the 2004 and 2005 seem to have the same creaking noise when braking. I have only one other problem with the 2005 one.

The automatic hatch does not work when the temperature drops below 65 degrees.

They said that they replaced the sensor but it has done no good. No one can find what the problem is just like they cannot find the problem with the creaking noise on both cars.
