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.

Had brakes serviced 11/2/07. ABS light came on the very same day. Tech said it was just a sensor failure, but car was safe to drive. On Dec. 22, light came on again and went off. On Dec. 23, light came on and went off. On Dec. 24, light came on and I experienced a grinding when I depressed the brakes. Sent it to dealer but they couldn't find anything. Picked it up on Dec. 26. picked it up and had to put it back in Dec. 27 for the same problem. They sent to local Chrysler dealer who says I need a new ABS module. I've done research that tells me that purchasing a new ABS module will not fix this problem.

When going any speed over 45 trying to break, there is extreme shaking in the front end. It seems that there is something wrong with the rotors.
