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.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 109,000 miles


Just took my 2005 Chrysler Pacifica to my mechanic today, 08/19/2014, and found my undercarriage to be rusting. I was told that it would last only about 1 more year. Our Chrysler Pacifica only has about 109,000 miles on it. It is going to cost well over $3500 to replace the undercarriage. I am a disabled veteran, and am on a fixed budget. These costs are taxing myself and my wife, and eating up our savings. We need help to find out if Chrysler would be willing to help us out with the cost of fixing our vehicle, or at least meeting us half way.
