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

Town & Country 6-cyl

The cruise control will come on by itself and drop out on an intermittent basis. The drop out is annoying, but the self apply of the cruise causes the vehicle to speed up also intermittently. There has been a few close calls. Taken to the dealer, and they have found no problem.

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles
Currently this vehicle has approx. 18,000 miles. Has been to the dealer 4 times with a 5th visit coming soon. Chrysler should give away complementary cots and pillows to new car customers so that they can sleep at the service departments at dealerships, especially the union shops that don't work on saturdays (and seem not to care about the vehicle in the first place). 1. broken forward engine mount, 2. loose sway bar/sway bar mounts replaced, 3. high pitched grinding noise on cold startup (maybe the starter but since it never does it at the dealership I'll never know for sure), 4. cruise control does what it wants to (set it to 55 mph, it can actually go down to 51 or up to 59 depending on the terrain, dealer says it's normal), 5. power steering (red) fluid is leaking, now there's a surprise! and finally 6. the driver's side window makes creaking noises when it's going up, I know it's not a safety issue but it is annoying. I should have forked over the extra cash for a sienna or Odyssey minivan, you get what you pay for. This is my first and last Chrysler.
