Review of the 2005 Chrysler Town and Country

  • Pleasing to drive and ride in, the T&C has finally come to the table with the all-important fold-flat third seat, allowing families to get the most out of its expansive interior. While it still can't match the rock-solid reliability of import rivals, this otherwise well-qualified van is worth consideration.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent ride and handling, good low-end pull from 3.8-liter V6, roomy and luxurious interior, innovative fold-flat second- and third-row seats.

  • Cons

    Unimpressive reliability history, major safety features remain optional on lower-level models, no stability control.

  • What's New for 2005

    The Town & Country gets revised styling, a handful of new features, a much lower base price and -- oh yeah, the Stow 'n Go fold-flat…

2005 town & country bad

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler Town and Country 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Bought brand new in 2005, was hearing a lot of power steering noise in cold start and noise to driver front side suspension. Finally took it to dealer at 22673 miles for replacement of rack and pinion and power pump assembley unit. Started acting again and took to a different dealer with 25,228 miles, to put another rack and pinion and power steering pump with hose too. At 26,692 miles took it back to last dealer for same problem and was repaired under warranty. Noise finally stopped, and,started again. Hose burst at 30600 miles in 2010, and replaced at Pep Boys in El paso,Tx Hose tears at 21 months later,I remove it to find out that Pep Boys used a Smog hose instead of power steering.

Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler Town and Country 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

We bought the van brand new.we have owned many chrylers in the past all of them used. This was the first new vehicle purchased.We paid off our financing 1 year ago, the body has rusted trough on both doors and is popping up other spots, the left side door wont open and neither does the back hatch. It starting losing power gradually, we took it back to the dealer and after 4 days they said we have to replace the commputer.1000.00. We will never buy another chrysler product again and most definitly will let everyone else know this!




Pretty vehicle poor reliability

Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler Town and Country 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Very functional vehicle, with power doors and liftgate, DVD entertainment, stow and go, etc.. The problem I had was with the Transmission. New remanufactured tranny was put in by the dealer under warranty at 67K. Small fluid leak afterward that was fixed at no cost. The front end makes a rattling noise when going over small bumps suspect there is something loose. In 90K miles I have avg. 20.6 MPG since new! Side of seat drink holders broke within a month of new. Not kid proof and somewhat flimsy. Same for the wireless headsets. Overall I would give the vehicle a 6, would have been an 8.5 minus the tranny and accessory problems.
