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.

My 2005 Chrysler Pacifica has a defective headlight harness but is not covered under the recall because of the VIN #. I contacted Chrysler but they said oh well, take to dealership and pay for the repairs. I only get 7volts of power to the left headlight and the right I have 10.5volts- barely enough to light the right headlight. Even though my VIN # is not on the list to be recalled, it appears Chrysler did not fix this problem in the later VIN # Pacifica's. Chrysler needs to fess up that this is an engineering snapfu that is dangerous to us since the headlight will only fail, and that is at night when safety is a big issue.
