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.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 78,000 miles
I was driving down the street at approximately 25 miles per hour and lost the ability to accelerate. The electronic throttle control light came on. I turned the car off and back on and the car drove normally for about a mile, and then behaved the same way. I went to the dealer for an inspection a month after purchasing the vehicle because the perform service indicator was displayed, the only suggestion was to fix motor mounts. The battery died on me a week later, and now the car is losing power while I'm in traffic. The vehicle is turning into a money pit.

Vehicle stalls intermittently while driving. Has occurred at speeds between 30 and 45mph. Both the traction control light and oil light will illuminate right before the stall occurs. This has occurred approximately 1 or 2 times per week, since purchasing the vehicle used, last month. The dealership has had it in their shop for several days, replacing the PCM and egr valve. Still not fixed at this time.

While driving at speeds of 10-35 mph, the oil and esp lights would illuminate, then the engine will simply cut off / stall. We have to put on the emergency flasher while in traffic, put the vehicle in neutral or park and restart. No engine light. We brought the Pacifica in to the Dodge dealership 5 times and they could not find any codes. They tried updating the software on the ECM which did not help. Then, the dealership said the motor mounts were bad and the torque of the engine was pulling on the front wiring harness(ES), causing the stalling issue. We had all 3 (front, rear, upper) engine/motor mounts replaced and the issue still happens every time we try to drive the car. The dealership has the car again and said the front motor mount still looks like it is bad even though it was replaced 4 days ago. Based on what I've read in the NHTSA database and the Dodge dealership telling me that motor mounts go out on a lot of Pacificas, this is happening to a lot of 2007 Pacifica owners. Chrysler should absolutely recall the motor mounts on this vehicle and provide a more reliable replacement motor mount with a robust design at no charge to all Pacifica owners. My wife has reported that she has almost been rear ended several times as a result of suddenly stalling while driving. To have this vehicle completely stall out while my wife is taking my 3 kids to school or other activities could cause a crash and is potentially life threatening. I just want this issue to be resolved. The Pacifica is a well designed car and we love the interior but we need reliable transportation.

From one day to another, the engine light turned on, the oil light turned on, the esp bas light turned on, the car sign with the curved lines under it, and the AWD sign and that's just to name a few. The car was also not reversing and the car was shifting really hard. Took it into the dealer, and they told my mechanic that it was the computer, but they weren't sure if that would even fix the problem because they are not sure if that is the problem. They said I would have to pay for everything and if that didn't fix it I would have to spend more money until they found the actual fix.and the best part is when the car was under warranty they had to reprogram the PCM. Power train:automatic transmission:control module (tcm, PCM). This car has always been kept in tip top shape with its regular maintenance, oil changes and etc... do not know what to do at this point because under the advice of my mechanic, he says this car is way to new to be giving so many problems. All I know is that Chrysler will be hearing from my attorney, because for what I know this is not the first time Chrysler has had problems with their PCM, tcm which is the cars computer. Someone please help!!!! I can not drive this car anymore, I have a 2 year old daughter and I refuse to put her in a car that is going crazy!

The car continues to stall at low speeds. We have taken to mechanic and they do not find any service alerts, and weren't able to duplicate on a test drive. It is starting to pick up in frequency to where it is doing it every other day now. I also called the service group at the chrsyler dealer I purchased it from, and they said they can only do what I had already done with the other mechanic shop. I went to the Chrysler forum to post and see if anyone else had experienced this, and see numerous postings of this issue over the years. I am very concerned with the safety of my family, as when the car stalls, it locks up and I lose control. I have to pull over and restart.

I have a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica touring 4.0. the vehicles lights will flicker, the air conditioner and radio turn off and without notice the vehicle will lose total power. No power steering, no hazard lights nothing. I have been stranded in the middle of the busy intersection. I took my vehicle to the Chrysler dealership to get serviced 3 times I paid $713 and they still have not fixed the problem. I have emailed a complaint with Chrysler headquarters. I was given a case manager who does not call me back. This vehicle shuts off without warning and can cause death or injury to myself, my family and others and Chrysler can care less about it.

Warrant of merchantability- implied warranty that states a vehicle will run like it's supposed to run, applying to the basic functions of the car. The buyer must prove a defect was present at the time of purchase. ¿car did not start X2 at dealer and required a jump start- I was informed it was a result of being low on gas and having sat out in the hot sun. Uniform commercial code- dealer disclaimed a warrant of mechanic ability, giving the consumer the right to challenge the disclaimer using the federal uniform commercial (ucc). The ucc can be used to cancel the sale of a used car. Unfair and deceptive acts and practices (udap law) - these laws can be used even if the car is sold as is, as long as the dealer is guilty of a verbal deception or failure to disclose information about the vehicle. ¿2007 Chrysler Pacifica ¿I purchased the car less than 1 month ago and have driven less than 2000 miles. I am extremely upset because I believe that heritage knowingly sold me an unsound car. The dealer is guilty of verbal deception and failure to verbally disclose information about the vehicle. ¿this car was involved in an accident and I was not made aware of the severity of the accident or the issues the car had as a result. ¿ I have attempted to get the car serviced and repaired to little avail. The car continues to have serious mechanical issues( indicating a frame issue or drive train issue) ¿ I believe the dealer knowingly sold the car to me and purposely withheld the extent of damage the car had in the prior accident, as well as the car's improper basic functioning. The consumer protection act unfair trade practices: Falsely represented the car as a safe, car without major defects, and no problems with any parts of the car- presented the car as being sound and able to adhere to basic functioning (battery issues, electrical issues, brake issues, drive train issues, involved a mvc) and did not disclose history of part.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica. The contact stated that the vehicle loses power while driving between 15 to 60 mph. The failure has occurred seven times since the vehicle was purchased. Right after the failure, the low oil pressure indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The driver experienced limited ability to steer and stop the vehicle during the failure. The vehicle is able to be immediately restarted after the failure. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for repair on four occasions. On the first occasion, the dealer stated that they could not duplicate the failure; however, they updated the software. On the second occasion, the dealer duplicated the failure and replaced the throttle body. On the third occasion, the emissions indicator illuminated and an erroneous evaporation code appeared. The computer was reset at that time. On the fourth visit to the dealer, three loose electrical grounds were found and tightened; however, the failure continued. The previous owner also experienced the failures, but the manufacturer was unable to determine the cause. The failure mileage was 21,150 and current mileage was 23,250.

I purchased my 2007 Chrysler Pacifica on 06-05-07, within three days I noticed that everytime I locked the car and open it, the driver's seat and both side mirrors would adjust themselves on their own. I took the car back and the dealer attempted to correct the problem and eventual disconnected the computer that controlled the seat adjustment. Needless to say this did not work. On July 13, 2007, while at work, I was doing home visits. I was running behind and forgot to readjust the mirrors when I got in the car. While backing up I hit a mail box causing $1,000 damage to the car. I went back to the dealer and informed them of the accident, they told me that they would have to contact the manufacturer as they did not know how to fix the problem. To date I am still waiting to hear from someone. If February of this year, I asked that the problem be fixed, to give me a rental or another car as I was having knee surgery in March, nothing was done and nothing has been done as yet.
