Nice Looking But Not As Good As We Thought — This is my 3rd T&C (96, 03 & this 08), the other 2 were awesome. We basically drove them about 350,000 miles and got our moneys worth on them. This 08 was a different story though. Along with having to replace brakes on this thing about every 15,000 miles we had the unfortunate event of the 3.8l engine blowup on us at 103,000 miles. Of course it was out of warranty so this was a very expensive process. I still love the Chrysler/Dodge products but the blown engine deal really ticked me off with Chrysler. I don't expect something for nothing but when there's a problem with a vehicle that everyone else who owns them complains about on the net, you would think that Chrysler would do something - honestly, I don't know how this hasn't become a recall issue with the thousands of people all having the same problem of the blown motor or blown heads. They knew there was a problem as 2011 came around and all of a sudden the 3.3l, 3.8l and 4.0l V6 engines were now all discontinued. I'm glad they came out and fixed it across the board, but in the process they did nothing for all of the consumers who had this fledgling motor problem.

Pros

There are so many features to love but in northern mi, my favorite is the heated seats in the front, passenger and middle row seats!

Cons

Fuel economy, while great as a daily driver, is not where I need it to be as I have to travel for work.

Gorgeous And Reliable — As a family vehicle, this van is perfect. It seats 7 and all rows of seats push button stow for easy loading. We even once transported a twin bed with no problems! Once you sit behind the wheel, any thoughts of "not wanting to be a soccer mom" go out the window because it is pure luxury and comfort for all members of the family.

Adequate — Brakes are terrible, very noisy,(wind and road noise.)Acceleration is slow, mileage is so-so. Would't buy another. Also, transmission is very loud and whiney, with lots of rough shifting. Only 42000 miles on it. Don't think the transmission is going to make it,though it has chrysler warranty but will not be honored.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Good All Round Vehicle — Got this as replacement to 2000 Chrysler Town & Country Lxi. The new van is quieter. It has more glass area. It is nicer in seat controls. Stow and go seats make world of difference. No more storing in garage or basement and then having to clean. Overhead console is nice touch with each seat having its own light and vent port. Engine has more space can even change all the spark plugs without ripping down head.

Excellent Large Family Vehicle With All The Trimmings — Like the style and functionality. Easy to store seats and create lots of cargo space. Interior colors are too light and get dirty quickly. Limo lighting is attractive but rattles a lot. Stereo with internal storage is awesome. Actually fun to drive.

White "rockin" Minivan — This van has been very reliable, but I am now ready to get into something smaller. Good for children, has the table in it that they can eat off or play cards! Lots of fun for the whole family. Buy it!

Perfect For A Large Family — This car is comfort incarnate. It is perfect for long trips with a big family and lots of luggage. I have the double DVD-screens in the roof and we use those all the time. I think that a car with such a big engine should have even better performance. But I guess that cheap fuel in the US is a factor there.
