T&C is a comfotable ride but that is it. Both automatic doors broke. The front stuts went twice. The brake rotors needed to be replaced before 15,000 miles. The factory tires were junk, one tire had a broken band at 10k miles. The aluminum wheels are next to impossible to clean. The alternator has been replaced too. I bought this as my first new car so I would not have problems for years and boy was I wrong. My 13 year old Volvo has still not had one ploblem but this van is always in the shop.

Great purchase, comfortable for 2 year old and 2 month old. Grandparents comfortably ride along too! Reliable and safe, handles well on wet, slippery Florida roads. Love the DVD and good sound system. This is a working van as well, and carries plenty of weight, heavy supplies. Very smooth, we use it on many dirt and gravel roads. No real problems, general maintenance only, and inexpensive to drive. Good milege, very happy with overall costs. Wife loves comfort, but it's a tough van and fun to drive and handles very well. Highly recommend for families that want a safe, comfortable, and reliable vehicle. Sound investment, no complaints whatsoever. Best looking mini van on the market!

we had a 2001 t &c prior to the 2004 thought the problems with that one were a fluke and loved the ride and thought lets get a new one. big mistake. same problems with transmission 1 year in and still going . car just dies, slips gears. all gets fixs under warranty and then something else. planning to get rid and move on put low and behold the trade in and resale is terrible. lesson learned a shame because the price is so affordable for a family. i have since learned i am by far not alone many many people have had problems leaving them stranded with the kids like i several times. I have roadside and AAA. and soon to have a toyota. not to mention a $3000 loss.
A limited-edition Platinum Series is offered as a late-year edition that adds 16-inch chrome wheels, two-tone leather seats, the rear-seat DVD entertainment system and special embroidered floor mats to the touring model. All Town and Countrys include a tire-pressure monitoring system and updated audio and entertainment packages. With the discontinuation of the lower-priced Voyager model, a short-wheelbase Town & Country has been added to the lineup.
