    I rented a pacifica the other day. Very nice car. Can you fit a 4x8 sheet
    in the back if all the seats are removed or folded down?

    Yes it is nice, but if you get one make sure you carry a ground sheet to
    access the inadequate spare and of course to pump it up.

    if it cant fit a 4x8 inthe back then it is a useless vehicle for me. I need
    to occasionaly bring home wood and plywoods for my hobby.

    For that occasional use what's wrong with the old effective solutions;
    a roof rack or a small trailer.
    I often have 4x8 plywood cut down a bit so I can carry it in my open car
    trunk. My supplier will do about three cuts for free, so I don't even
    need a table saw.
    Having a very large vehicle to occasionally bring home materials is very
    wasteful IMO.

    I agree. When my elderly Grand Voyager wears out I plan to buy a small 4 X 8
    utility trailer. Empty they weigh 500 lb. so you can haul a useful load
    behind a Caliber, Compass or other sensible size vehicle quite safely.

    Not to get off the subject, but I have a 2006 Pacifica and I was wondering
    if there is a way to disable the the seatbelt alert that dings until you
    buckle up.

    in my opinion....its very wasteful to buy such a large vehicle only to
    disable the seatbelt dinger.

    And to make it even easier and more economical, if you're fortunate
    enough to live amongst good neighbors, you can all even share one :)

    Take care.

    What's my opinion? That trailers weigh 500 lb? I got that off the sticker on
    the trailer. That a Caliber or Compass can safely pull one? That's what
    Chrysler says. No "opinions" needed here.

    Or do you think that my "opinion" as to what I intend to do after my Grand
    Voyager dies is worthless? If I can't have an "opinion" about my own future
    purchases, who can?

    Some people have no life.

    On whose planet is a Pacifica a "very large vehicle????" Its not a
    Suburban, you know. For that matter, its not quite as heavy as a
    decked-out a Town&Country minivan!

    Interesting question.
    Is the Pacifica a truck? I assumed it was sold as a car.
    The Pacifica is about the same weight as a T&C MV.
    Heavy for a car, but not that heavy compared to a Magnum.

    The Pacifica and Magnum are about the same length as the LH cars, ~200".
    They were about 3,400 lb., about 1,000 lbs lighter.

    We all know the Suburban is a BIG personal truck; it's weight shows it.

    Weights in lb. at
    Caliber'07 SXT manual: 3039
    Sebring'06 207L V6: 3,222
    Magnum'06 3.5L V6 AWD: 4,159
    Pacifica'06 FWD 350V6: 4,383, AWD 4,560.

    T&C Minivan'06 LWB 3.8L V6: 4,340
    Suburban 1500 2WD: 5,269, 2500 BIG 6L V8 AWD: 6,074
