For a little while now when we have the A/C running it leaks from the firewall onto the passenger side of the van floor. If the A/C is ran long enough with out drying out the floor on the drivers side gets wet also. I know there is a recall on the 2008 Town and country's for the reason. Our van was built in January 2007 and the recall on the 2008's start on June 27, 2007 and go to July 30, 2008 manufactured vans. I do believe my van should be included in on this recall because we have had the A/C drain cleaned and that is not what the problem is. The leak is from the firewall where the A/C connects to the inside of the van under the carpet. We have seen it leak and I would love for it to be fixed since there is a problem with it. Please let me know what I can do. I don't want the carpet to rot out and I don't want anything to be messed up either. Thank you. Also we have had problems with the VIN since we got the van.... we have always been told it is an invalid VIN it wouldn't even work on this site but that is what is on the van in the VIN location. I don't know what the insurance company or the revenue office did to get it to work.

My wife's 2007 Chrysler Town and country van stalls after every fill up. This has happened in heavy traffic and could result in an accident. I thought this might be isolated, but after an internet search, it seems this is a significant widespread issue. My opinion is this is a safety issue and should not happen after only 55,000 miles. Thanks.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Town and country. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled numerous times while driving at various speeds. The instrument panel lights and the interior lights would flash one and off when the failure occurred. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times for the failure. The dealer replaced the battery, the multifunction switch and the body control module however, the failure was not corrected as the vehicle continued to stall intermittently. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 36,000 and the current mileage was 50,000.

After filling the minivan with gas (especially if full), once driving off gas station lot--car stalls. Everything shuts off. Usually shakes right before shutting off. Must have something to do with brakes too. The more you brake right after turning car back on after fill up, the more likely it will stall. Very dangerous if making a turn, on highway or if cars are behind it. Also died once when turning into parking spot. I came very close to hitting car because power steering and brakes were gone too. This has been happening for months and is a huge problem. Our chrystler/Dodge could not diagnose problem but there are many others online. This is a 2007 most of the same problems are with 2005.

After fill in gas in gas station, drove about 3/4 miles, trying to make a right turn at an intersection, suddenly the car lost power. Engine stopped, no power steering, no brake. Finally the car stopped at the opposite side of the street. After several minutes, turn the engine back on, then everything back to normal.

2007 T& C. check oil after 30,000 and discovered 1 1/2 qt low. Dealer advised it is normal to use 1 qt per 1,000 miles. (I never had a car do that let alone one with only 30,000 miles). I now have 42,000 miles and still consumes about 1 qt + per 1,000 miles. I have registered a complaint each time I take it in for service.

Driving vehicle about 55 mph, after hearing a loud bag tried to steer car onto berm. The power steering did not work. Finally, and with a struggle, vehicle was pulled off the road. Had vehicle towed to mechanic. Mechanic stated that alternator had completely come loose from its mooring. After inspection, he saw that one bolt was missing and the other bolt had fallen out. Alternator coming unmounted caused damage to the timing cover and serpentine drive belt. Timing cover is not available currently from Chrysler. Is this a reason for that, perhaps?

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Town & Country. Whenever the driver attempted to engage the brakes at 15 mph, a very loud grinding noise was heard from underneath the vehicle. She took the vehicle to the dealer and was informed that the rack and pinion steering was leaking and needed to be replaced. She was also informed that a new water pump was needed because of how the vehicle was constructed. While the vehicle was at the repair shop, the contact found numerous complaints online for the identical failure on the same make and model vehicles. The dealer stated that they would be responsible for the parts, but she would be responsible for the labor. The vehicle was replaced and the contact believes a recall should be issued. The failure mileage was 37,000 and current mileage was 44,000.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Town and country. While backing out of the driveway at approximately 2 mph, the contact heard a loud noise. Smoke appeared inside the passenger compartment as well as the exterior of the vehicle. The contact shifted the gear into park and exited the vehicle. She observed small flames underneath the vehicle. There were no warning lights illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer and they stated that the failure was related to the catalytic converter. The vehicle has not been repaired at this time because the contact is waiting on a response from the inspector. The failure and current mileages were 19,500.

2007 Town & Country with 9,000 miles driving on interstate 76 in philadelphia exiting an off ramp at conshohocken. Van began shaking then it was a sound like a pop van became uncontrollable, not able to steer or shift any gears. Driver unable to turn wheel causing the van to go into the off ramp. There is little damage to the body of the van but driver was told by a worker for the pa dept of transportation as well as an autobody shop & tow truck driver that the engine mount had broke causing the loss of control of the van. The engine mount is broke in at least 3 places and part of the engine or mount is hanging down near the wheel. The Chrysler dealership is saying they have never seen anything like this and therefore it is driver era I.e. the accident caused the mounts to break instead of the mounts breaking causing the accident. Driver is not sure what happened the only account is the van was unable to be steered to follow the path of the off ramp and the van was unable to be shifted out of gear or stopped. The van came to a stop because of the off ramp there was no control for the driver.
