The left tail lights burnt out already - $48 to fix.
2006 4dr Minivan, ext. 207-horsepower 3.8L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
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, ext. 207-horsepower 3.8L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
As above never any problems.
2003 4dr Minivan, ext. 180-horsepower 3.3L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Owned for almost two years now and no issues, not even minor repairs.
Reliability and Durability of the Chrysler Town & Country: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Minivan, ext. 197-horsepower 3.8L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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
Not that great of a service recordwith the two vans I owned
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.
2005 4dr Minivan, ext. 180-horsepower 3.3L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
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
2005 4dr Minivan, ext. 180-horsepower 3.3L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
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.
