Pacifica

  • 68,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

My vehicle continues to stall without warning while I am driving. It generally happens while turning left and always under the speed of 45 mph. I have taken it to several dealerships who have fixed different things they feel is causing the stalling and nothing is working. I have paid for the repairs and the dealership says unless it happens when they have it they cant diagnose it. I have almost been hit several times because the cars behind me have no warning the car is shutting off. I have contacted Chrysler who told me to take it to a dealer and they would "help" me figure out what is wrong with the car. So I did and they cleaned the throttle body and gave me new spark plugs. Chrysler was going to make me pay for the repairs and I fought them on it and they agreed to pay for the parts and I paid labor and the car is still stalling. I have read online hundreds of other complaints for their Pacifica stalling and doing the same thing mine is. There is a recall for the 2005/2006 vehicles for the same thing but not for the 07 model. I don't understand how Chrysler can ignore this problem when so many people are complaining about the same issue as the vehicles that were recalled. I am in fear of my life and the lives of my family while driving this car I can guarantee I will get hit eventually and I want it on record that I tried everything I could to get the problem resolved with no luck.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 110,000 miles
First week in June I sent my Chrysler Pacifica to athens Dodge Chrysler Jeep in bogart ga. The steering was locking up on my wife. I figured it was maybe the power steering. The tech informed me that the motor mounts were again broken and they replaced the right one for the third time. I read in social car chat rooms that the motor mounts are failing in just about all these type cars, and that Chrysler was not going to cover the costs. I now have a car that no one will buy or at least I wouldn't because it can't hold its own engine. I know this is a consumer concern just wanted to point that out. My main concern is the steering locking up with my family on board. Motor mounts are not supposed to break unless there is a major accident. In my opinion this is a manufacturers design flaw that they are dumping on us consumers. I mean if they told me the motor mounts were going to be a maintenance issue I would have never bought the car. This is absolutely ridiculous, and now my concern is the safety of my family. Please advise me on what I can do to find some kind of help with this. I am not the only one. Where else can I complain and steer others to.

Pacifica

  • 75,000 miles
At approximately 40,000 miles, while a computer-related recall repair was being performed, I was informed by the Chrysler dealership that motor mounts were a potential problem & to keep a watch on it. I thought this was an odd comment at the time, as the car was barely 3 years old (and, of course, out of warranty). Fast forward to approximately 70,000-75,000 miles, and we started having issues. They are particularly noticeable when I am slowing to a stop, and then re-accelerate (for instance, the light changed green right as I was slowing to a stop, so I would take my foot off the brake & then accelerate instead) - the car won't move right away, and then it suddenly "clunks" into gear & lurches forward. The force is so strong that I have almost rear-ended someone on several different occasions. I have contacted Chrysler regarding the issue - have been told it isn't covered as my car is out of warranty. I thought Chrysler would certainly issue a recall, due to the sheer volume of complaints online regarding this same issue - but so far they have not. I finally brought my vehicle in to be repaired - I was told four mounts are bad! I drive almost all freeway miles in Suburban area - no gravel roads, etc. - this should not be occurring. I am still hoping for a recall as this is dangerous and I feel whoever supplied these bad parts should have to stand behind their premature failure.

Pacifica

  • 70,000 miles
My 2007 Chrysler Pacifica began stalling on 8/17/2011. We have to put the car in neutral and re-start, no matter what the traffic conditions. We lose all power steering and brakes when this happens. After about 3 stalling incidents in a short time. We took it to the dealership. They had the car for a couple of days and couldn't find the cause. They sent me home and said to keep a diary of problems. I kept track for a year. In that time the car had stalled 24 times. The time of day and conditions were all noted. In August of this year, the car stalled numerous times. We took the car back to the dealership with the diary. They have had my car since 8/27/12. We have incurred $800 in rental car expense. They put a computer on board and sent the car home with my husband to drive for a week. He pushed the button when it stalled 4 times. The computer recorded the stalls, but no codes. They can't re-create the problem and have no answers. I some times drive with our grandchildren and will not drive the car until this is resolved. Motor mounts were replaced early in our ownership. The only thing that Chrysler can offer was to clean the throttle body. The dealership did that and it didn't help. The car has started stalling at higher speeds. Initially it was 10-25 mph. The last few times it was around 35 mph. This is clearly a safety issue and needs to be taken seriously.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 97,000 miles
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.
