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 4WD

The contact owns a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica. While driving on the road on October 4, 2005 went to hit the brakes and pushed the pedal as far as it would go, had no brakes. Had to swerve out of the way to get out of the middle of the street. Had to put on the emergency brake to stop the vehicle. The car was 6 months old. It was the second time this happened. 4 sensors on car, 2 out of 4 sensors tore. The contact took vehicle to the dealer, and the dealer did fix the vehicle which was still under warranty. No police reports. No crashes.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,662 miles
Contact states ABS light comes on the dash. A service dealer checked it out and found that the left front ABS brake sensor was out, and they repaired it on 6-20-05. Now the ABS light is back on and the sensor is out again. Contact did not have any problems with this prior to this because he has the car only 2 months.
