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.

paint bubbles & rust on inside & outside of door. In 2007, Chrysler had the dealer send it out to be fixed. It lasted about a year and the paint started to bubble & peel again in the same spot. Took it back to the dealer and they said that Chysler will only pay for it once. Over the years its gotten alot worse. Lately I have noticed other Chryslers, especially Pacificas with the same rust in the same spot. Was there ever a recall? I know that Pacificas had problems with rusting. I love my car. I never had any problems with it other than the usual wear but this rust looks soo bad. Its not our fault that the paint bubbles and peels. Why won't help it devoted custmoers?
