Motor mounts are troublesome on Pacifica's and prone to failure. Every car has its issues though. This one is not a dealbreaker, just something to be aware of. Stick with Mopar replacement parts. full 2007 Chrysler Pacifica review

For the most part, this car is very reliable. The one major problem is with the motor mounts, which pretty much break and have to be replaced every 40,000 miles. They are costly, but not exorbitantly so, and this one issue certainly shouldn't be enough for most people to rule out this vehicle. When they do need to be replaced, you absolutely must ensure that they are replaced with OEM parts—the aftermarket parts are commonly made of solid rubber (instead of being gel-filled), and they will not absorb engine vibrations the way they are supposed to, resulting in absolutely insufferable vibrations and rattling noises in this otherwise wonderfully smooth and quiet car. full 2007 Chrysler Pacifica review

I do not feel comfortable taking long trips in this car due to the transmission noises. I drive in the heat of Florida and often to Virginia. My last few trips I have rented a car just to not have the worry of a breakdown. full 2006 Chrysler Pacifica review

within 80,000 miles i already had problems with body molding clips and anchor nuts not working properly. also within 80,000 miles i had the front motor mount go out and they are $75 to $150 a piece just for one. plenty of other small mechanical gliches. full 2005 Chrysler Pacifica review

Suspension was poorly engineered. Everything is expensive. $348 per shock absorber! $600 for A-arm bushing. $1500 for engine harness which fails when $347 engine mount fails. full 2004 Chrysler Pacifica review
