At 27,000 miles the A/C on my Chrysler Town and country failed - leak in rear evaportor core. The system will hold no refrigerant at all. The dealer, white plains Chrysler, 70 westchester ave., white plains, NY. Cannot get this part as it is on back order and will not be available for one month at least. There are several other of the same vehicles at the same dealership awaiting this part. This seems an unreasonable situation and one the manufacturer should address. The only explanation from the manufacturer was that this is a popular car! it looks like an extraordinary number of defects in this part as I research it on the internet. That this part will not be available until the summer is over is unreasonable. We are a retired couple and my husband has congestive heart failure and could not in any way be subject to the temperatures inside this vehicle. We are thus without transportation. We are "trapped" in our home for the entire summer. Why can't the manufacturer make this part available to the dealer in a more timely manner?

We have a 2005 Town and country Chrysler mini-van with a rack and pinion leak, oil pan gasket leak, and front timing cover seals leak. All issues that have come up in numerous other vehicles of the same make and year. There should be a recall.

1-reported vibration in steering wheel between 20-50 mph [2-possible exhaust leak, I was getting sleepy after 20-30 min drive time, I use recycle mode on A/C due to having asthma [ 3-reported noise from the muffler/exhaust area[4- A/C compressor makes a laboring noise [5-vibration and a growling noise in rear suspension, axle or transmission[6-transmission seems to slip or jerk into and out of gear between 15-45 mph. Service department could not duplicate any of my concerns but by the same token my mileage out was the same as my mileage in so I'm not sure it was even driven. Three[3] days later I came in and ask for someone to drive with me and the technician was able to hear the noise before we had gone a mile, at that time he thought is was just a loose spare tire but when I came back that afternoon I was told it was the catalytic converter but there was not one in town and as soon as it came in it would be repaired. It was supposedly order on Thursday Jan 19,2006 and received on Jan 26,2006. Catalytic converter was replaced on Jan 27,2006 as well as exhaust manifold gasket. [7-on this date I also reported on Jan 26,2006, when I was braking to slow down to turn right the car engine surged forward and almost lost control of car-nothing was listed on the service copy as cause or what was tested for the engine surging when braking.[8-rear brakes have crystallized and need to be replaced at my cost. Am getting other prices at this time.
