The encountered problems:
- Pacifica 2004: some of the motors could stall during certain operating conditions;
- Pacifica 2004: in certain situations, it may be a separation of the fuel line, which leads to the leakage of gasoline and the risk of occurrence of fire;
- Pacifica 2005: HID headlights start flashing, and after that and they fail;
- Pacifica is not so spacious inside, as it may seem. Acceleration will unlikely impress you because this model is more like a heavy minivan.
