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.

2005 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #1

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 250 miles


I had just picked up my new vehicle from the dealer and had only 250 miles on it. I was simply driving down the road when the transmission seemed to shift into neutral and then back into gear. I quickly pulled over but everything seemed okay. I continued on and quickly discovered the transimission was not shifting out of low gear. I called the 800 number for Chrysler road service only to be told that there were no contracted service providers in the area where I was. I made other arrangements to have it towed to the nearest dealer (<10 miles away). The problem turned out to be a failed power train control module. It's been a week and they still have not fixed the problem because no parts are available. I've been given a promise date that is almost 3 weeks out.
