Best and I mean BEST minivan!

I absolutely LOVE this minivan. I'm so glad that I didn't listen to some of my friends when they said not to get a chrysler because this car is the BEST! It has every possible feature available and even things I would never have thought of! I have the built in booster seats which have enabled me to keep my 9 year old still in a booster without her whining! The satellite TV is fantastic and the fact that there are 2 tvs that can play different things is great. I use the hidden floor storage ALL the time and neither of the other minivans offer that!! This is the best bang for the buck! OH yeah.. this minivan gets 25 mpg on the highway!! NO JOKE!! We go on a summer road trip every year and that is my gas mileage with the car loaded up and the a/c on! I have had this car for 18 months already and I will be keeping it for a long long time! If you are hesitant about getting this car don't be! You won't be sorry!

We had an 06 Freestar that we were happy with but it was totaled 2 days before Christmas this past year ('09) We were a one car family so we were rushed to find a vehicle. We went to another manufacturer first but they no longer do minivans, then decided on something economical or SUV. For the money we could not make it work so we started looking at used vans as they generally dont hold their value well. I was hestant on the Town and Country. I drove it, it was nice, my wife liked it and we needed to get a deal done so we jumped on it. After driving it for a month I was in love with it, a minivan!?!?! The ride is outstanding the vehicle size. The interior incredible comfortable, and spacious with lots of neat little features. The kids love the swivel and go seats and the fact that the middle captains chairs adjust forward and back. Performance and handling is way better than the freestar was. Handles like a minivan, but maybe a little better. quieter and smoother on the road, smooth acceleration and shifting. The one we bought (used) has a lot of nice bells and whistles. The back up camera is a nice feature, the in dash entertainment system, DVD (w/fold down screen in back) 40 GB hard drive for music and pictures, sat radio all great things The best thing was we just took a 1000 mile drive to KC for baseball games with 4 adults my 10 yr old son and his friend. The A/V jack and 110 plug allowed the kids to play Playstation on the screen. This kept them happy for the 19hrs on the way there and the 19hrs on the way back. GREAT FEATURE!! Cargo is not a problem with this van. Not only do you have ample space behind the back seat, but the well in the floor where the back seat folds down in to is deeper and wider than the freestar. I coach baseball and I will have 3 camping chairs, team equpiment, sons baseball bag, two five gallon buckets with balls, and misc stuff, stuffed in to the back. The best example of the space is the KC trip. We were on the road for six days with 4 adults and the 2 kids and my cousins wife does not pack light. We also had 3 small coolers in the van for drinks and snacks. the playstation of course and we were all pretty comfortable. Because dont forget with "Stow-n-go" you also have a TON of storage right under the feet of the middle passengers. We were able to add cargo on the way back because of souveneirs and stuff. I really do like this vehicle. The only two negatives in my eyes is fuel economy. I believe it rates at 17 and 24. You are lucky to get 17 out of it, and in the winter you dont even come close. I will say out of the 2300 miles we put on it for the trip I did get 24 out of one tank, but for the most part it was 20 to 22 with me pushing it pretty hard. The other negative is the absolutely stingy Chrysler waranty.

This is my 5th Town & Country Limited. They just keep getting better. We are amazed of the improvement in the ride and handling over our 2005..Really enjoy the six speed transmission as well as the more responsive bigger engine...Just made a very pleasurable drive to Florida and was well pleased with the gas mileage!

If you want an American Mini-Van

I have had this car since 2010 - bought it used, with less than 25,000 miles. Can't beat the features - dual DVD player, leather seats, seat warmers!!!! (didn't want it initially but now will HAVE to have it in any future cars), great radio, nice mood lighting (the kids LOVE it), rear viewing camera!!!!! and LOVE the under floor storage. BUT.....the gas milage SUCKS!!!!!!!!!! BIG TIME!!!!! 19mpg/city & 27mpg/hwy my butt!!!! More like 15mpg/city and 19mpg/hwy - and that's with doing the speed limit!!!!! Drivability - poor - it turns on a satellite dish! (cuts turns like a semi-truck), HORRIBLE pick up -> 0-60mph in 15secs! My former 2001 Pontiac Montana mini-van had way better pick up! The transmission slips in first-> A LOT! The interior is noisy....like you think a door or window is open when it's not! Wish it had an 8 seat option (we have a big family and now have to take 2 cars instead of one), Would have been nice if there were storage compartments in the very rear seat to store the additional head phones sets for the DVD (built in storage is only for 2 head sets); lastly, would prefer for the cup holders to be ROUND and not square (not sure why the designers thought square cups were more common than round ones?). Above anything else.......this car would be unbelievably AWESOME if it had better GAS MILEAGE!!!!!!! and better PICK UP!!! I'm just looking for an improvement of 7-10mpg more to match the gas milage I had in my 2001 PONTIAC MONTANA!!!! (can't believe that my previous car-9yrs ago->had better gas milage! ->19-20mpg/city and 27-31mpg/hwy). All-in-all, I am please with my purchase of the last and ONLY american made mini-van available.........if it weren't for all the family members I have that worked at the big 3 - I would have bought a foreign mini-van. Something for the Chrysler brand to chew on....

Bought my 2009 T&C used in 2010. Have had to replace tires, brakes, and fuel system parts. Most frustrating is that it uses 1 quart of oil every 1,000 miles and Chrysler says that is normal. Everyone else I've talked to has said No way that much oil consumption is normal in such a new vehicle. I'm just now at 60,000 miles and you would think it was much older. The only things I like about it are the perks like the dual DVD, heated seats, adjustable accelerator, and similar features.

I really do love my Town and Country. However I could do without the boxy styling and the hard plastics for center stack and dash. But I can live with it. In my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, we had "Stow "n" Go". It proved to be very useful when we were transporting lumbar in it for our renovations. Unfortunatly, the 2nd row seats were not so comfy. Ofcourse my kids didn't mind at all. (I am speaking for the "Stow "n" Go" system in these new modles too.) So when buying my new one, I decided to try something new. "Swivel "n" Go"! It's an okay feature. However, when the seats are facing the other way, there isn't that much leg room for both passengers. The ring for the table was annoying as well. Chrysler should have burried it a little. All the storage compartments proved very helpful no matter what. The dual DVD screens really helped with avoiding squabbles. All in all, this is a fantastic mini-van. I guess the inventor in the inovator!
