Determined never to drive a minivan, guess who's loving it? Well, the 2010 Town & Country Touring handles well, not a lot of road noise, great room for my 3 in carseats and one in a booster. Love having tons of cupholders, great interior lighting, good sound system, nice mirror to view the rear passengers, automatic doors are great, and lots of rear storage for the groceries!
Owned for 2 months now. Bought a used program vehicle at 41,000 miles.
I didn't expect to have the rear seat carseat anchors be off-set on the driver's side. It still works okay to have the booster seat on the right and carseat on the left, but not enough room for 3 in the back seat. My son in the rear carseat can't reach his cupholder, but brother can hand him his drink and has 2 cupholders on the right side, so it works.
Fuel mileage is doing well between 21 and 24 town and hwy., which was our deciding factor to go with the minivan vs a suburban or yukon.
I do wish the driver's seat went back further. I'm 5' 7", and I feel like I'm a bit closer to the pedals than I'd like to be. But, it's nice to be up higher than in my Dodge Intrepid.
We have the 3.8L engine, and it's more powerful than I was expecting for a minivan. No trouble up hills or passing.
I did lots of research before deciding on this vehicle, and am happy with our decision. I expect to need to replace breaks more often due to other's comments, and we will be replacing the tires with heavier duty passenger or light truck tires when they wear out because we drive lots of gravel (and due to the weight of the vehicle - as suggested by another reviewer).
These are minimal maintenance issues compared to reviews on the Hondas and Toyotas that I read, and we paid a lot less!
