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.

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • 39,000 miles


At 39,000 miles, the 2005 Town and country began stalling following a fuel filling. This stalling occurred and still occurs following fuel filling. The van was taken to a Chrysler dealership. The service department indicated that the roll-over valve on the fuel tank was the cause of the problem. The remedy given was a fuel tank and evaporator canister replacement at a cost of $900. Evidently the faulty valve cannot be replaced independent of the fuel tank. Internet research of this issue found that this is a commonly reported problem by 2005 Chrysler Town and country owners. As the stalling can occur as the vehicle enters a highway, this problem can cause accidents and injuries. Chrysler should issue a recall to repair the faulty valve on the tanks.

While driving along a quiet Suburban street, the engine of my 2005 Chrysler Dodge Caravan quit without warning. With remaining limited braking and steering, I brought the car to a safe stop. The engine would turn over, but would not start. I called for assistance; the dealership service rep confirmed that the fuel gauge sending-unit had stopped working, so even though the fuel gauge showed over half-full, I had run out of gas! the unit was replaced under warranty, leaving me to speculate what might have happened if I'd been miles out of town in a Canadian-winter storm, with my family along.
