Notes: What the heck happened here? A year after getting our "seal of pretty good" for the 2004, Chrysler turns around and delivers this crapwagon.

This minivan has problems ranging from rack and pinion steering failure to door locks that won't let you out. And trust me, you'll want to get out.


definitely annoying

While driving the van it began surging, as if a fuel line problem, and then would die and each event the power steering would fail. I had to park the vehicle in a hospital parking lot and get it towed in morning. When attempting to start the vehicle, it made a very loud "clank" noise as if a rod broke. Result is a $5000 engine replacement due to a faulty computer which sent erratic signals to cam sensor. Vehicle has 120,000 miles....all commuting at gentle speeds (we have averaged 23-25 mpg so it is obvious we drive sensibly). We have been religious about service.....and can prove it. I have owned Chrysler products since 1966 and this is the last!

Having purchased a new Chrysler, Town & Country minivan, in less than 3 years of ownership, I've had to make numerous repairs that I've never had to make on previously owned vehicles in the same lifespan of a vehicle. The quality of this van has been extremely disappointing.

Vibration and in brake petal and/ or steering wheel. When turning sharply to left makes a grinding noise also has a bumping feeling like something is loose. Service department checked and had warped rotors and needed front disk brakes for the vibration, the grinding and the bumping noise was loose suspension sway links front brakes were replaced and rotors were resurfaced- I had to pay for the brake and rotor repair; the suspension loose sway bar links were replace listed was replaced front sway bar link and a link-sway eliminator. Driver seat feels like it has lost its cushion sometimes feels like there is a hard knot of something in the tail bone area of the anatomy. The A/C vents are unable to adjust for cooling the front and side windows. The floor vents do not line up with the openings in the floor console causing any air to be moved toward the front and under the dash. Was told the seat and A/C was all in normal operation.
