When we exit the highway the cars stalls and sometimes even lunges. We have taken the car to 2 different mechanics and they say there isn't anything to fix. Chrysler even said there isn't anything they can do. I feel this a major safety issue because when this has happened to me I've had my grandson with me and it took 4 tries to get the car to start again. Also when driving in rush hour traffic the traffic can stop suddenly which will cause an accident. Chrysler has fixed this problem on earlier years of this model, I don't think they want to be bothered with repairing a known issue on a vehicle they no longer manufacture.

I bought this car almost new (it was never titled - Chrysler has used it as a corporate car), with 15,000 miles on it. I have replaced the engine mounts four times (the first two times under warranty). On the latest instance, the mounts had been on the car for about 15 months and 28,000 miles. They failed and damaged the right front axle, which also had to be replaced, for a total cost of about $2,500.

At 40,899 miles (I purchased this car new) I have now had to replace the three engine mounts twice (first time at 20,000 miles - under warrantee). I am a mature driver who drives this care gently.

While driving, the engine just stopped/stalled. Steering, brake and gas pedals stopped functioning. I have to wait until the car fully stopped. Scary and feels so helpless in the middle of the road!

The first time I had to have the motor mounts replaced on my 07' Chrysler Pacifica was in 2009. There was an awful almost slamming type noise and the vehicle "jumped" when accelerating. I took the vehicle to the dealership, it was still under warranty at that time and they said the motor mounts were cracked and they would replace them, but couldn't guarantee how long they would last. The mechanic said that it was "an issue" on the Pacifica model as it was a design flaw and he had seen this problem often. Since the first time the motor mounts were found to be cracked in 2009, I have had to replace the motor mounts 2 more time and now they are broke again; totaling 4 times in 7 years!!! this is absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable! I have called Chrysler quite a few times in the last 4 years and got nowhere! they could not care less that the consumer has to pay for their "design flaw"! if I had known that I would have the same problem keep repeating, I 100% would not have bought this vehicle! and if I had known that Chrysler would give me an arousing "oh well, too bad for you", I 110% would not have bought from this company! how sad that even after all the money they have made off people buying their products they won't do anything to help! inexcusably disgusting!!

The vehicle shuts off while driving at low speeds mostly it happens when going around curves. I took it to the dealership they were not able to find any problems with it they just said they could replace the 2 fuel pumps for $900 but could not guarantee that would fix the problem. I did not have the pumps changed. When the vehicle shuts off loss of power assist steering is lost and power assist brakes making it dangerous to navigate to a stop to restart it.

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.

  • 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.
