I have owned my 2006 Town and country Touring Minivan for slightly over two years. I have had no maintenance problems with it. All I have done is change oil and gas it up.
2006 4dr Minivan 180-horsepower 3.3L V6

The left tail lights burnt out already - $48 to fix.
2003 4dr Minivan, ext. 180-horsepower 3.3L V6

Owned for almost two years now and no issues, not even minor repairs.
2001 4dr Minivan, ext. 180-horsepower 3.3L V6

I love this van for how reliable it's been over the couple of years I've had it. I've put the better part of 160,000 or so miles on it since we got it. It's been through blizzards, tornadoes, thunderstorms, floods (yes, I drove it through a few feet of unavoidable water during a flood and it miraculously survived) and it hasn't let me down yet. I am not afraid to drive this vehicle in any weather/road condition and I think most of that has to do with the fact that I know it won't die on me when things get bad, despite its flaws and size.

Number one reason, dealer scams number two gas milege very poor I get better gas milege with my 2005 Ford Expedition,our new 2010 T&C so far has been to the dealer numerious times for transmission problems and many other problems to much to list here.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 175-horsepower 3.3L V6

The quality is substandard. The transmission pump and pins failed after 2000 miles.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 251-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Seems like a lot of people are having a lot of problems with this vehicle. Of course, 08 is a total rething of the line, so an increase in repairs from 07 is expected. Still, seems very high.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 251-horsepower 4.0L V6

Not that great of a service recordwith the two vans I owned
2005 4dr Minivan, ext. 180-horsepower 3.3L V6

Egr valve replaced when van had 40.000 miles on it. water pump replaced at 65.000 miles front control module replaced at 98.000 miles

There is no other way to say it but EVERYTHING. Have owned for five years and there is nothing reliable or durable about this vehicle. Just about every major component inside the van and the engine has had to be replaced at least once.
2003 4dr Minivan, ext. 215-horsepower 3.8L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Problems with power steering and transmission due to poor design and manufacturing materials.
2001 4dr Minivan, ext. 215-horsepower 3.8L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Too many repairs and parts are expensive. More expensive than my Toyota.

Rock solid reputation and came with lifetime warranty, should I need help in 15 or 20 years.

Price, reliability, past experience, ride quality compared to comp vehicles, available features, kid friendly, outstanding safety features including front, side and knee airbags, antilock brakes, stability control, 5 star crash ratings. Bests the others.

While a little too soon to tell on our 2008, we have had nothing but great luck with our previous Caravans as noted in our past personal experience comments.

SE vs. SXT. SXT Power doors and convenience electronics add more complexity and less reliability. Tranny gasket almost always leaked in the past. Previous to 2008 the pulleys had no shoulders so the belt fell off frequently - TG they changed that
2009 4dr Minivan, ext. 251-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Very unreliable as one can tell. Again I paid for a vehicle that is unsafe to drive and in the shop more than on the road. Also, so many other issues that just keep happening one after another. I take care of my vehicles...yet this one is a sad case!
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 197-horsepower 3.8L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Found that they are still using the same electronically-controlled 4-speed that has been a perennial nightmare since the late eighties. Fit and finish is poor.

Any van that could vent carbon monoxide into the cabin has serious issues. Also, Dodge has a history of poor reliability.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 251-horsepower 4.0L V6

They have a history of transmission failure that has not been addressed in the last 20 years.

For years I have heard there are lots of problems with the caravans, especially the transmissions. They did not get great reviews until 2008 which was out of our price range.
2007 4dr Minivan 180-horsepower 3.3L V6

Owned an earlier model Caravan and had considerable trouble with water leaks, and transmission problems. They were covered by warranty but as soon as warranty expired, started having transmission problems again

So So
2005 4dr Minivan, ext. 207-horsepower 3.8L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Engine uses almost 1 quart of oil per 1000 miles. Dodge says this is "normal". Had to switch to synthetic oil to minimize problems. Makes me question long term durability of the engine. Had front end problems early on (tie rod ends, struts and strut mount
2005 4dr Minivan, ext. 180-horsepower 3.3L V6

Still not expecting miracles. Probably have to replace the transmission at one point.
