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

I filed for the lemon law in the state of N.H. back in 2005. After countless attempts by the so called Chrysler professionals to fix all the damn problems with this high end piece of garbage. Of course after wearing a path in the road to the dealership and the extreme anguish and inconvenience this caused, Chrysler miraculously found temporary solutions to all my complaints. therefore all the time and paperwork which was wasted on the filing of the lemon law became null and void.

In closing I would just like to say that all the problems Chrysler is having makes me extremely happy. This could not happen to a better company.
