The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chrysler Pacifica isn't long for this world, but still offers good interior seating and flexibility. Most Americans prefer mushy white bread, and the 2008 Toyota Highlander is a larger, high-quality "loaf" that will satisfy most every consumer.
