Chrysler makes 3 cars that are reliable The Crossfire sports car, Town and countyr minivan, And the Pacifica Sports Wagon my cousin has the Pasifica limited it is all-wheel-drive and she lives in Virginia Beach but her other side of the family lives in New Hampshire When she goes to the beach she takes her pacifica out onto the sand and the all-wheel-drive kicks in and it chugs on through the loose sand and hasnt got stuck once! When she drives to New Hampshire she says it is wonderful it is comfortable and roomy and the dvd player keeps her kid occupied. The New Hampshire winters are TOUGH !!! She has a picture of 21inches of snow and a layer of ice packed on her car . She cleaned it off and Chugged through the snow there was 3inches of snow on the plowed road and her pacifica went therough it for 30 minutes to get to her husbands familys house.
She has not had any Problems with it it is a 2008 Pacifica Limited all-wheel-drive that they baught in november of 2007
It gets 18mpg in the city and 24mpg on the highway
i probably wont require maintenace more often but when it does it will require more and will be more expensive. its also a chrysler so you can anticipate it will be in the shop alot given chrysler's reputation and depending on where you live you might not have any use for it and it will just drain your gas mileage. if you live somewhere where it snows then you would use it but otherwise you wouldn't and would waste money on gas. i hope i gave some good insight and wish you luck in buying your next suv.
