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.

THE EMISSIONS SYSTEM IS ANOTHER JOKE IN A HALF ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE DEALING WITH RUST RIGHT BY THE EMISSIONS. I HAVE REPLACED EVERYTHING FROM A SINGLE GAS CAP TO A PURGE SOLENOID, TO THE EGR VALVE AND NVLD. REALLY THE ONLY THING TO DO NEXT IS REPLACE ALL THE LINES.

THIS CAR IS NOTHING BUT A HASSLE, I AM SERIOUSLY AT MY LAST END WITH THIS CAR AND I KEPT POURING MONEY INTO IT THAT WITH THE SALE OF THE VEHICLE TO ALL THE REPAIRS I'M AT $12,300. YES I KNOW A LOT OF MONEY TO BE THROWING OUT BUT I LIKED IT UNTIL ALL THESE OTHER PROBLEMS STARTED.

WHAT SHOULD I DO? PLEASE, SOMEONE LET ME KNOW, I'M OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS.
