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.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica, started having problems at 50,000 miles. ABS sensors had to be replaced and recall for fuel module...but most upsetting the car stalls at low speeds or while making Pulling into parking spaces, etc.. I have brought it to dealership and like many others without engine light on they cannot duplicate problem, therefore we are sent on our way with no fix!! I have 4 children and I am terrified to drive this car!! why wont Chrysler stand behind these vehicles!!!

2005 Chrysler Pacifica - I just purchased a 2005 Pacifica touring with the H package (man date 8/04). I have encountered a "rumble' when hard breaking from 60 (and over) down to about 30 to 35, it makes the steering vibrate. It is clearly in the front end at first I am thinking bad rotors.
