Pros: stow & go seats
Cons: Like everything about it.Great ability to haul people or large items.
Cons: brakesI paid my local dealer over 40K for this vehicle and they denied the now well known brake issues it has. There is now a fire danger in the doors. As I write this the car is on a rack at the dealer as they try to figure out the noise coming from the transmission!
Town and Country 2008
Pros: lots of cargo space with the sto and go feature.
Cons: we downsized from a ford excursion so this vehicle seems a bit small.Great vehicle if you have kids to haul around, I have the stow and go and it comes in handy when hauling a bunch of stuff. The 3.8 engine is also pretty peppy. Kids love the dvd player overheads. On the down side, I have had it in for 2 air conditioner leaks in high pressure hoses.
Great for grandkids BUT..!!!
Pros: Entertainment/dvd/tv system
Cons: BRAKES..!!!!Many 'auto door/ lift gate issues' Brake pad/rotor wearout very quickly..a problem that Chrysler should recall the brakes to replace with more durable assemblies..
Pros: Comfort, ease of use, performance.
Cons: Styling. To be fair, that applies to all MiniVans.
Advice: 'Order' the 'Limited' model. Stock cars come loaded with videos etc. you may not need.As a rule, I usually only buy large performance oriented sedans &/or coupes, such as the Chrysler 300C & Challenger SRT that I currently own too. But I needed this MiniVan for utility purposes & purchased it for it's size & configuration & didn't really care about anything else. As a rule, I find all MiniVans to be butt ugly. HOWEVER, since purchasing this Chrysler MiniVan, I have abosolutely fallen in love with it. This vehicle is very comfortably large & offers great visibility, comfort & surprisingly very good handling & performance. Considering the type of cars I usually drive, I wasn't expecting much from a 200 hp 6 cyl engine. However, matched up with an excellent 6 speed transmission, it feels more like 265 hp. It handles the interstate at 80 mph with ease. The seats all fold completely flat into the floor leaving a tremendous cargo area. Both side & rear doors open with the touch of a button on your fob which makes loading material or children wonderfully easy. Never expected to even like this MiniVan. I love it.
