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. full 2008 Chrysler Town & Country review

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. full 2005 Chrysler Town & Country review

The reliability of the powertrain is rock-solid. The VQ35DE engine will go for well over 300,000km without any major issues, and the transmission will give you no problems. One thing to watch: on areas with salted roads or by oceans, rust can be an issue. full 2004 Nissan Pathfinder review

Far too many issues in the short time I owned the SUV. There were 3 recalls but thankfully for nothing major. With only 31k miles on the clock, I had issues with the TPS system, gas door hatch, rear hatch lock, window motors, rear hatch leak and more. full 2008 Nissan Pathfinder review
