Christmas came early because I needed new tires for my car and I was worried about how I was going to get around since it was in the shop. Enter Chrysler, who offered me the wonderful opportunity to test drive the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica for a week.  Can we say PERFECT timing!!

I have never driven a minivan before so I was looking forward to the experience and I have to say, it was fun. You'll be able to tell in the pictures you are about to see.

I took full advantage of Chrysler Pacifica's Stow and Go Seating and Storage System.  All I had to do was slide the seats forward and they fold into the in-floor bins so I could utilize all that space for the damage I did at the mall. What you see here is not even half of the bags.  I made a second trip the next day *insert surprised eyes emoji*.  I mean that's what the space is for, right?

Since I don't have children (yet), I called my friend Jessica to go for a ride in this family friendly minivan.  We brought along her gorgeous baby girl Lu for the ultimate test.  As you can see, there was enough space for me to sit comfortably (on Alloy Nappa Leather Trim with Axis Perforated Insert seats by the way) as I strapped Miss Lu into her car seat.  Within minutes on the road, Lu was asleep.  I would love to say it was my driving but I'm sure it was the comfortable conditions.

The baby carriage fit perfect with tons of space to spare.

The 360 Surround View Camera provided that much needed assistance for parallel parking in the city.

This was definitely a treat! Heated seats and steering wheel options - for someone who's always cold, I really enjoyed this feature.

When I went to pick up my friends to hang out, they were taking forever to get ready so, I popped in my favorite movie (Coming to America) in the Blu-Ray player and watched it on the 10.1 inch HD touchscreen.  It was the perfect way to make use of some free time. 

Who said minivans aren't stylish?

I really enjoyed my week driving around in the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.  This top-rated vehicle definitely dispelled my preconceived ideas about minivans.  It was spacious, quiet, has excellent gas mileage, and was such a pleasure to drive.  I totally understand why it's one of the best options in its class.
