Review of the 2006 Chrysler Pacifica
I traded in my higher end Town and Country for a mid level 2006 Chrysler Pacifica, primarily, to lower my car payment. Although I went for fewer frills by purchasing a vehicle with a trunk I have to open and close by myself, and have 3 rows instead of three, (three rows are available with limited trunk space) I must say I don’t miss my old vehicle at all.
Why it is just for her: I guess a guy would like it too, I feel like the 2006 Chrysler Pacifica was designed just for me. It is wide to accommodate my fast turns. Yet it is low enough to the ground to allow me to get into it without first donning jeans and work boots. It is a sleek and beautiful vehicle that resembles a cross between a SUV and a station wagon. With a fully adjustable seat and safety belt, I can adjust my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica to fit me and not feel like I am driving my daddy’s truck.
The size and profile of the 2006 Chrysler Pacifica makes it easy to accessorize in a way that no man will ever enter it. (I purchased hot pink rugs, license plate holder, CD holder and back seat protectors.)
What it has: The 2006 Chrysler Pacifica has 3.5L-6 Cylinders with a seating capacity of six (mine has 5). It is classified as an SUV but is a manageable style for a woman. (I can actually get into it wearing a straight skirt). It drives as it was designed “to deliver agile sport sedan cornering and handling”. It feels as good as my husbands Audi. My favorite feature is the heated leather seats. They are easy to clean and the heat works the knots out of my back while I drive.
What I wish it had: Although I like the fact that my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica cannot hold the entire neighborhood, I like the limitation of not being called upon for taxi service. (I can also fit my dog kennel in the oversized trunk). However, I wish I had purchased captains seats for the second row so the kids could not touch, and got the back row of seats, even if I kept them folded down or in the garage. I also wish I had purchased the auto trunk option.
I recently found out that my old car (the Town and Country) was ethanol compatible. The 2006 Chrysler Pacifica is not.
What you should consider: When you purchase your 2006 Chrysler Pacifica, get the navigation system, and if you have kids, get the TV. If you are accustomed to an automated trunk, get that too. If you have kids, you will also want the easily cleanable leather seats.
