Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

I put in my order for a 2018 Pacifica Limited on Sept. 9.

Its been a bit of a journey. My wife was initially dead set against another Chrysler product, until she had a chance to see the PacHy at the Detroit auto show in January and to test drive it in early June.

We were all set to get a 2017 in June, but the dealer couldn't do a trade for the colour we wanted. So I found one myself at another dealer.

Then the recall. FCA Canada wouldn't allow the vehicle to be sold without the recall addressed. So we reserved it with the dealer, and he was going to let us know when we could pick it up.

After all this waiting, we decided to order a 2018 on Saturday from the local dealer (different than the one we had reserved at). On Monday the other dealer calls and says we can pick up the car. Sorry, we decided to order new.

Now the factory is entering a planned shutdown for retooling starting Oct. 2 for 4 weeks. But we'll get it eventually.

It'll be nice to be a 2-plug-in family. If only there were a plug-in that could tow a fifth wheel, we'd be all set.

We had our reservations about getting another Chrysler, that's for sure. I'm hoping that the convenience of refuelling at home, and not needing new brakes as often, will outweigh any additional trips to the dealer for repairs.

As it turns out TrueDelta is showing good reliability for the Pacifica.
I do\o want a 5 or 7 passenger PHEV with cargo capability, but in the form of an SUV not a minivan. My family has standing orders to shoot me if I buy a minivan. And it turns out my youngest is a sharpshooter with a sniper rifle.
The poor, maligned minivan, lol. We've been a minivan family for 9 years now. You can't beat them for everyday practicality, and the Pacifica has nearly perfected the styling of a box on wheels, IMO. I think it should age well.
FYI, the EVSE that come with the PacHys is L1/L2 capable, and can use the same adapters that the Gen2 Volt and Bolt EV use. Charges the van from empty to full in just over 5 hours. ;)
Good to know, thanks. My wife should be able to charge at her dad's using his welder outlet.
