Test Drive Tuesday: 2017 Chrysler Pacifica by A Real Kid

I recently spent a week driving the embarrassingly enjoyable Chrysler Pacifica mini van with my family.  As much as I really liked it, no one had a better time with this vehicle than my 9 year old daughter, Freya, who was furious when we had to give it back.
