The 2008 Chrysler Pacifica is filled with features and options sure to keep even the most gadget-happy consumer enchanted.
Reviewers agreed that the Pacifica excels in providing numerous standard features even on base models. MyRide.com liked the climate controls, "especially the automatic system, which includes Auto Hi and Auto Lo options," making for a comfortable environment at all times. They also appreciated the analog clock and the ease with which the time could be read. Another nifty feature is the ability to "program convenience functions such as auto-locking, auto-headlights, lock notifications (horn, lights, nothing), door lighting and so on to tailor the car to particular tastes." This puts a great deal of customizability in the car owner's hands. MyRide.com notes the fact that other cars "require a trip to the dealer to reprogram these settings," which really adds a touch of convenience to this 2008 Chrysler model.
Edmunds.com called the Chrysler Pacifica "a relatively upscale, well-appointed choice." Heated seats, DVD navigation, and a premium Infinity Intermezzo surround sound with eight speakers and subwoofer are on the options list for the 2008 Chrysler Pacifica, along with Bluetooth and a DVD entertainment system.
Kelley Blue Book is not as quick to jump on the Pacifica bandwagon, however, noting the model "seems like a good idea" but only "on paper." They admit the 2008 Chrysler comes with a "long list of standard features and optional all-wheel drive," but if you don't absolutely need that third-row seat, you should look to the Dodge Magnum, "which offers the same roomy wagon-like interior but delivers better performance and more eye-catching styling."
Even so, the multifunctional Chrysler Pacifica is a good choice for those who like the versatility of a crossover vehicle.
