Cons: have to press hard on the brakes to stop
Advice: look around real good before you decide to purchaseWe were in a rush to buy a car as our previous car was totaled. I wish I had more time to look around. Overall the van is not that bad. I am just upset that with only 10000 miles on it, my rotors need to be cut. This never happened to me with any other vehicle I owned.
Cons: The Whole Package
Advice: Don't make the same mistake I didI am a Town & Country owner with currently 43,000 miles. This van has been nothing but a headache for me. My transmission is slipping. My rear end howls. My front bushings are in need of replacement (AGAIN).Wheel bearings seem to be a problem. The headlights fill up with water causing fog. My van has died on me when braking several times, my transmission fluid looks like TAR. Resale value does not exist. Stay away from Dodge/ Chrysler vans.
Pros: Stow and GO -- Dual electric sliding doors
Cons: Rims -- nice but lots of work to clean
Advice: Don't purchase the DVD player with this model..... aftermarket recommendedOwn it and Love it. I love the Stow and Go. It is a must for all minivans, including the middle seats. Have not had any problems with the 2006.
Pros: The captain seats
Cons: Overall performance
Advice: Make sure that your dealers are able to fix any problems and are reliable.It is not a very realiable van because I have only had it for 3 years and I am having major problems. On our trip to Destion the van suddenly burned out and started violently vibrating and we had to pull over. The gas peddle was literally burning my foot. But, before we had conducted this trip I had maintaince check it over because it had conducted small problems before. Even though I specifically told them the transmission was having problems they only told me that there was nothing wrong. It was a waste because the transmission blew up on the trip. Overall, this van is not very reliable either is the maintance crew...not worth its money.
