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.

On 8-6-05, there was an electrical problem. There was a fuse in the incorrect spot. The dealership fixed the fuse problem. On 8-12-05 the steering wheel froze and the vehicle turned off. The consumer was in traffic when this occurred, but there was no accident. He was able to get it to start back and drove it home. He had it towed to the dealer, and they could not find the problem. The consumer got the vehicle back from the dealership and he has not driven it since. He does not feel that the vehicle is safe to drive.
