Wife drives a 320i xDrive. We're looking to trade it in for an A6 Avant Quattro though.

It's pretty new to us since the first Hybrid wasn't without it's issues. It ended up getting replaced so this new one has about 450 miles on it. In the meantime, we have driven different non-Hybrid versions of the Pacifica and they seem to have held up well over the 15-30k miles that each one had on it. These were loaners so they probably weren't taken care of that well, but we didn't see any rips/tears. Seats were nice, etc. The dealership uses a Pacifica Hybrid for their rideshare car and it has over 40k miles on it.

For us, the Pacifica had more bells and whistles that fit us over the KIA, Toyota, and Honda products. The Honda was the closest out of all them for a good blend of luxury, features, and usage. The Hybrid became a must since it's mostly used in town. We're 450 miles in and still working on the first tank of gas. (Quarter tank down in 1100 miles with the other Hybrid). We have a cousin that purchased one and they've had ZERO problems over 5-6 months. We also have some friends that lease them and on their second lease with a Pacifica.

If you're thinking about it then it should be a long term replacement rather than a two year vehicle. The used market doesn't appear to be too friendly. =\ But that's probably just a Chrysler thing.

Happy to get more specific if you need. (If we weren't able to get back into the PacHy then we were going to look at a Hyundai Palisade even though it doesn't provide near the same usability that the minivan does).

The wife drives a 2015 640i gran coupe with a tune. She doesn't like to drive the m4 unless she has had "too much coffee" and needs to rip it.

Have her take a look at the Acura RDX, everything the CRV does but just a bit nicer.

Just upgraded my wife from a 2012 ML350 to 2020 GLE 450. She's welcome to drive my M4, but doesn't really like to because it's a manual and not as comfortable for her. It's good having two entirely different vehicles in the family. If it snows my car stays in the garage.

In my case, my wife drives an MB ML350. She is not a car person, and doesn't really understand the whole car enthusiast thing. I tried to get her to look into the new X5, but she hates BMW's (I think it has something to do with my infatuation with my car... ) She has never driven my M4 (or my previous M3) and thankfully, has zero interest in trying.

Mainly, I'm curious if your spouse's car is "on par" with yours...

Let's see them!
We have a GTi which she occasionally drives. But we commute together so I have to do most the driving....

My wife in general doesn't like to dive. But she does like a car with good handling feedback. She hates Audi's

Just a quick update - it made the trip to Texas and back without any problems. This is for the Hybrid Pacifica.
