Well, driveway anyway. We just got home with a new ride for MrsS0N...
We needed the 2 extra seats that she offers, and the wife loves it. Note the pile of rocks in front of the Magnum... or as I call it, my "half ton crossbar removal assistant system."

We like the styling of the Pacifica and looked at one a couple years ago... at the start of the nearly two-year search that resulted in our buying our first 300C (Blue). However, neither I (at 6'4" - not a surprise), nor the wife (at 5'4" - quite a surprise) had enough head room in those back seats! We decided they were applicable only to children pre-teen or under (at least the size that our kid was/is). So for us... that was the end of looking at Pacificas. Just glad we didn't have to consider an Atlantica... no doubt they would've been slightly smaller. LOL
Still in love with my first wife, and first car ('68 Charger)... Still have the wife!
heh, yeah for our 2year old and .5 year old, this will work out well. But I know what you're saying about headroom in the 3rd row - good thing I don't ever plan on sitting there!
As for mods for it.... WEELLLLLL, as long as they don't make too much noise, I bet I could sneak a few in. Just have to start looking at what's available for the 3.5L now (haven't really looked before...)
The only problem I have with the vehicle is no auto headlights. And with the lights on the stalk, I can't do the same trick we do in our magnums... I'll have to keep my eyes open on that.
Wife and I looked at the Pacifica as well...wife really liked the style. We test drove it to make the wife happy....but the Pacifica really needs a Hemi! The 3.5L had enough juice, but I wanted a Hemi so bad and wife wanted a mini-van, station wagon type vehicle then it was destiny we saw the Magnum! The extra 2 seats would have been nice when we go visit Grandma and Grandpa so everyone can fit in one vehicle.

Actually my sister has just ordered her Pacifica. I am still considering getting it because of the seating and the sometimes better gas mileage. The used market on these is pretty fair. Maybe one day. I can't really justify two new cars and am still trying to stay away from the dangerous SRT-8 test drive my dealer offered.

I test drove a Pacifica when they first came out, but couldn't afford one.. I also wasn't crazy about how noisy it was under WOT. Then the Magnum came out. A few months later I was able to afford it and got mine.

Yes, she isn't any magnum replacement... no sireee. But the 3.5L is good for the familymobile for the Mrs., and it really is nice inside. Too bad we couldn't swing that in-speedo cluster NAV system. That woulda been nifty.
Tomorrow, I get to wash and wax them both if I'm super lucky. We got a lot of surface area to cover now... :lol:
