2007 with 77k on it. AWD with the 4.0 motor. The big perk is its under extended factory warranty until 100k or September.

Meeting the owner tomorrow and to test drive and fo for $5k but there's a catch...



Someone backed into it and they never replaced the panel. Looks like it wasnt bad enough to have damaged anything mechanical so I dont have to be in a hurry to fix it...


Edit: Picked it up today and I knew it was meant to be when the DMV charged me $87 for the title and tag transfer.

$5k is a steal. It's worth at least twice that. That's only about $500 in body damage.
I'd buy it, fix it, and sell it for $10k all day long.

Man, that's a steal for $5k.

If that's what you were looking for it's a definite fo.

4) Profit!


Chrysler free is the way to be.

Pretty much is. Expecting our 3rd child in July so we wanted something AWD, 3rd row of seating, and in the 20mpg range.

Yeah, that little crease is nothing. I wouldn't even bother fixing it. It took a left hook, so what?

That's a great deal.

Hey sorry I can't meet you, I had to leave the country due to a family emergency. Can you wire me the money? I'll have a friend give it to you.

I would at least pop the dent out and treat the area for rust to keep the cancer at bay. Chryslers these days seem to be built with Toyota steel from the 80's...

Friend's mom's Pacifica blew the motor on the highway at around 50-60k. Not sure why. Was maintained by dealer.

Are you sure the 100,000 mile warranty will transfer?

Unlikely at this point as I've talked to both the husband and wife a couple times over the last two days and they sound normal. Like a older couple selling their 3rd vehicle.

So they say. Asked when they had it serviced at the dealer before listing it.

Wife has a 2007 with over 150,000 miles on it. Nice car overall. The only problem we have had was the engine mounts broke. They are very expensive to replace, can only get the from dealer. Otherwise a solid car.

EJECT! After selling it..

That's a steal. They suck mechanically but a good turn around fix..

Buy, repair and sell. My dad told me when I was 16 and buying my first car . "Buy anything you want but if you buy a Chrysler don't bring it home.". After working at a dodge dealer I saw why.

Heh, I sold one yesterday to a friend for $8K. Pretty much the same mileage. The original window sticker was with the owners manual and the vehicle listed at $56,020.

I've seen a few that have come in on trades that are complete turds due to lack of proper maintenance and abuse.
If you happen to pick one up that was well looked after they are a nice rig and the AWD system in them is awesome.

Good luck OP, they are a nice ride if you find a good one.

Update in the OP.

Hell, you should have asked him how much for that Mercedes in the garage! Just noticed that..

Late to the party but check the engine mounts unless it is just a flipper for you.

They are probably broken.

Should be good as it was just serviced at the dealer a month ago. Inspection showed a weak battery and bald tires. Both of which the previous owner had them replace.

With 100% certainty that window sticker was not for a pacifica, they topped out at about 37k--with every dealer option.
