"We purchased this car in late Winter of 2002 to accomodate a 3rd child/carseat. This car has driven us to Florida, Texas, and Cape Cod. Not to mentions many beach trip to Michigan and daily sports practices and games. Highlights: Power doors-Great with full arms and active kids Leather seats- Easy clean up with kids 2nd row captain chairs- HUGE bonus on road trips Dual zone heating/cooling- great feature! Heated front seats- We live in Chicago...need I say more? Privacy glass- great for backseat sleepers Overall, this car has been a reliable and comfortable car for a busy family. We did have to install a rebuilt engine in 2009 but, that was in part to not keeping up with the oil changes which I have become diligent about. Each year, we have had a a few hundred in repairs, new tires, brakes but, still way cheaper than a car payment. My only complaint is the rusting is more advanced along door frames than I would have liked and it is not as soundproof to outside road noise as it was when we purchased it. We did pay for an upgraded coating that has likely worn off. If I were in the minivan market, I would definitely purchase again. But, I am ready for a "big girl" car vs a mom mobile."

"Bought used 11 years ago. I have replaced brakes twice, the engine control computer once, full oil leak repair, tires twice, water pump, the radiator and all ignition wiring. I love this car. It has dents and the paint is starting to fade. I use it every day for pleasure, work or travel. It is not garaged nor kept in shade. It runs like a top, carries an amazing load up the mountains, and steers and stops straight as an arrow. When it gives out, I will get another like it. Tinted glass gives privacy and I believe it keeps car cooler inside. A/C works great and does not seem to load engine at all. MPG around 17. All the above cost and repairs is far, far less than a new van and I don't have to park in left field to prevent dents in the parking lots!"

"This vehicle has cost me more to own and operate than my previous three GM vehicles combined with similar mileage. I purchased it due to location of the dealership which has since closed and the convenience of features needed for my evolving lifestyle."

"Bought new. From what I have learned this is just another typical Chryler product...good engine, transmission and very reliable. $600 HVAC repair at 70K. Van now has 125K and having trouble with the power side doors and locks, TMPS sensors and the park assist system. When new everything worked great but with time everything starts giving trouble. Have owned GM products with 300K miles and never had this kind of problems. Will definately be my last Chrysler product. Town and Country Limited was top of the line and was with us until it started giving trouble and the only way to get the codes and problems fixed is through the dealer at high $$$$$. Never again!...Guess I expected more for a $39K vehicle in 2006."
