2007 Chrysler Town & Country Review

By

Chrysler's Town & Country is the pinnacle of the company's minivan fleet. Designed to serve the needs of well-to-do families, the Town & Country is outfitted with the latest electronic features and conveniences, such as a rear-seat DVD player and power-operated doors. Thanks to its handsome exterior and well-established nameplate, the Town & Country is one of the few minivans that can be driven to the country club and not generate muffled laughter from the parking valets. Regrettably, although Chrysler invented the minivan segment, it no longer dominates the field. Minivans from Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Hyundai now rival, or best, the Town & Country in size, power and features, although none have yet copied Chrysler's innovative Stow `n Go second-row seating.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you appreciate the touches of a premium sedan, but need the ability to haul half a soccer team to the park and then pick up a stack of two-by-fours on your way home, the Chrysler Town & Country offers a uniquely attractive package with two rows of disappearing seats.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If parallel parking isn't one of your strong suits, you might find yourself in some awkward positions while behind the wheel of a long-wheelbase Town & Country. Side windows that can pop open only slightly to vent fresh air can make for a claustrophobic interior.

What's New for 2007

No major changes for 2007.

Driving the Town & Country
Driving Impressions

We drove a Town & Country with the more powerful 3.8-liter engine and were impressed by how well it worked with the four-speed automatic transmission to move the big, heavy...

... minivan - even hill climbs and freeway merges were accomplished without noticeable exertion. Out on the highway, the Town & Country rides smoothly and quietly. We were also surprised at how agile the tall, multi-ton vehicle was around town and in parking lots, and braking was sure and smooth.

Stow 'n Go Seating
A feature unique to Chrysler minivans, both rear rows in the long-wheelbase models fold flat into the floor. And when the seats are upright, the underfloor bins can be used as additional storage spaces.

Overhead Rail System
Long-wheelbase Town & Country minivans feature a convenient rail-mounted overhead storage system.

2007 Chrysler Town & Country Details
Interior

The Chrysler Town & Country was introduced in 1992 as the first premium minivan. Now in its 15th model year, the high-end Limited Edition remains the most luxurious minivan on the road. The vehicle is roomy, with the available heated leather front seats being among the most comfortable in the segment. The second-row Stow 'n Go seats can be a little narrow for some, because they are designed to disappear into the floor, and are therefore smaller than more conventional seats.

Exterior

As minivans go, we think the Town & Country is among the most attractive on the market, especially when fitted with the bigger 16-inch wheels. While minivans don't offer the most exciting bodystyles on the market, the Town & Country looks contemporary without odd-ball space-age touches, and it makes no attempt to look like a Sport Utility Vehicle.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The base Town & Country comes with a 3.3-liter V6 and four-speed automatic transmission, plus features like removable (not fold-away) second- and third-row seats, CD sound system and air conditioning.

Optional Equipment

Features available only on select trim levels or as stand-alone options include the 3.8-liter V6, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, navigation, Infinity six-speaker sound system, in-dash six-disc CD changer, parking distance sensors, leather interior, sunroof, power-adjustable pedals, side-curtain airbags, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, automatic temperature control, Stow 'n Go fold-away second- and third-row seating and an overhead rail storage system.

Under the Hood

The base 3.3-liter V6 produces 170 horsepower, while the 3.8-liter makes 200 horsepower. Each powerplant is mated to the same four-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. The all-wheel-drive option has been dropped to accommodate the Stow 'n Go seating option. Chrysler has appropriately placed the less-powerful 3.3-liter V6 in the short wheelbase models, while equipping the long-wheelbase vans with the torquey 3.8-liter V6.

3.3-liter V6
170 horsepower @ 5000 rpm
200 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/26

3.8-liter V6
200 horsepower @ 5000 rpm
235 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/25

"This van was a rushed purchase after a car accident. I needed to find something fast in my price range. The dealership did a good job in cleaning it up and making it look nice. From the moment I got it home, it started to irritate me. Things were constantly wrong with it. There was a rumble in my tires that no mechanic could explain, therefore it never got fixed. There were always belts breaking or something else that needed work on it. The power steering would completely FAIL in the middle of traffic...yeah, not scary at all! The nail in the coffin was when we lost all power steering and the van overheated in the middle of traffic. Apparently the alternator shattered and bent the frame in the process. I'm not a car person, so I'm not exactly sure what that means. What I do know is that the repairs are going to cost more than the van is worth. Even the mechanic said, you might just want to get a new car. Our van has become a joke in the shop. The mechanic always says "Oh that van again!" Not good! That being said, I did like the automatic sliding doors and liftgate. It made getting the kids in and out and errands very easy. I also liked that the middle and back seats folded into the floor. LOTS of space to haul stuff. However, folded seats don't get me work, now do they?"

$3900. Good deal? I think so.

"Me, the wife and my daughter flew out to Phoenix, went on Craigslist and bought this after 1 road test around the block. In Phoenix you can get a 90 day permit for 30 bucks. We drove to Sedona, Flagstaff, Meteor Crator, Grand Canyon South Rim, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas, on up to Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore and then back to Maine. We drove 4000 miles and the only glitch was a bad radiator cap that made me think it was overheating but it wasn't. 3.8, FWD with really comfortable seats. Stow n Go seats were great too because we didn't need all that seating so folding them into the floor was awesome. 4th Chrysler T&C I've had. Love 'em. 23.5 mpg going 80 most of the driving we did out west."

"Replaced parts over the years including A/C, water pump, radiator, hoses and pipes, shocks and struts. The swap out of the shocks and struts was a huge improvement. Added combo-shock w/ spring in the back to allow extra load without sacrificing ride comfort. Before putting the extra springs, a van of 7 adults could ride a bit low and cause those in the back to jet a jolt of going over a bump. Its been a great van and has taken us on many great a great journey. I can only hope that my next one holds up as long. With a little time and some mechanical inclination, it's a surprisingly user serviceable vehicle. I didn't run into the issue noted by others where front breaks wear fast... I did, however, put the upgraded high-carbon disks on all 4 wheels with really good break pads. Stopped all break noise and they will outlast the life of the vehicle for only 10% more."

"I have 218,000 miles on my 2002 T&C. Bought it when it had 46K miles on the 3.3 engine. The starter was just replaced about 7 months ago. It still has the original alternator. No engine or Trans problems ever. Replaced water pump in summer of 2014. Everything works on it. It easily pulls my 26 foot MacGregor motor/sailboat that is on a double axle trailer. I am looking to buy a 2007 now."

"I am in the military and my family and I have orders to Miami and the military will only pay for one vehicle to get shipped. This is a great van for a larger family especially for the island life. All the seats fold into the vehicle so you can load all sorts of stuff inside the van as well."

"Nothing but trouble since day 1.Replaced Brake rotors 6k, burns oil Mopar says it's normal. Replaced 3 door locks,EGR Valve,wheel sensor, idler pulleys, cat converter, sliding door harness twice, rear AC evaporator, throttle body needs cleaning every 15k, Rusting out right rear quarter panel same places in many models of the same year, many more defects to mention. I purchased this new and would never buy another Mopar product as long as I live. They are all built with cheapest parts they can vendor. I am a 35 year veteran mechanic! You wonder why USA buys foreign cars! Stay away from Chrysler products, you will be sorry."
