2006 Chrysler Town and Country Minivan Touring 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I wish I did more research when shopping for a van. I was pleased with the price tag and amenities I was able to get with my Town & Country. The initial investment may have been lower, but I have had the van 2 years and have spent WAY too much on servicing it since!! I've had problems with the air conditioning, tires, brakes, air bags, sunroof and other "unknown" squeaks, squeals and plastic parts falling off in the interior. I tried selling the van once the repairs started occurring regularly, but the resale is HORRIBLE! I would have to pay out over $7000 to get rid of the van - so I am stuck with the piece of junk. Do not buy a town & country! I will not make this mistake again!

Review

Overall am well satisfied with the van. Love the disappearing seats! Gas mileage: 19-20 city, 22-24 highway. 35,000 miles and it needs new front pads and rotors ($284). Not what I was expecting!

Horrible brakes, very poor gas mileage

Review

I bought this van new June 06 has the 3.3 L v6 short wheel base model. The gas mileage is terrible 15 freeway i couldn't believe it, my wife drives the car mostly and drives with the kids in the car. The front brakes squeak and make grinding noise a lot of brake dust, get very hot and wear out every 20,000 miles like clock work. The rack and pinion power steering was replaced at 25,000 miles, passenger sliding door power lock replaced at 30,000 miles, transmission shifts hard you feel every shift. Dealer has answer for all, everything is normal, front brake noise and wear normal, 15 mpg freeway normal. I think the dealer is full of blank. last Chrysler i buy. Dont buy a town & country

Brakes last 12K Miles

Review

We chose the town and country because it was the only Minivan i fit into comfortably (6'4"). We have grown to really love it and I particularly love the stow and go seating. However, it has been the least reliable car I have every purchased. The in the first 18 months of ownership we had to replace one tail light twice and the other once. The e-brake sometimes "snaps" and needs to be re-engaged (Dealership could not do anything about this) and the two front brakes wore down to the metal in about 12K miles and 20 months (warranty is 12K miles and 12 months). The dealership told me I should expect the brakes to wear out significantly faster than Honda, Toyota, or Nissan.

Air problems

Review

I have had it with Chrysler, I have had window switches, gascap, door locks rack and pinion, and now air conditioner will not work, only 2000 miles out of warranty, Chrysler will pay for parts if you call and complain enough, but takes forever to get parts, 10,000 on order, if they are having that much of a problem I think they should do a recall, but if you are having problems call and call they will send parts for you and all you will have to pay is the labor, which by the way, costs way too much! I hope this helps anyone with same problem

Nice minivan

Review

We have over 31,000 miles on the van since fall of 2006, and there hasn't been one issue other than a replaced gas cap. It provides a comfortable ride, especially on long road trips. Good power outlets for the kids. The van gets better-than-expected gas mileage on the highway: around 27 mpg (even with 4 adults, 2 kids and luggage in tow). When driving on short trips around town, we get about 19 mpg. Not great, but still good considering the vehicle's size and carrying capacity.

Good Car Except For Gas Mileage. When new got 20 mpg average. Now i get 13 mpg average. Its been to the dealer 8 times and i'm fed up. They tell me that nothing is wrong yet gas mileage dropped 7 mpg for no apparent reason. No Satisfaction from Chrysler so now I'm done with Chrysler.

Mostly Happy

Review

This is only my second new car & I am pleased for the most part. I love the style, inside & out. The van has been pretty reliable but I had to replace brake pads at 36,000 miles (I drive in Atlanta traffic, but don't ride my brakes). At 70,000 miles, the driver side CV Axle broke internally (boot not torn at all); had to tow van home & replace. The passenger side is popping; plan to replace this week before I get left on the side of the road again. Maybe a recall is necessary, since the dealership parts guy admitted that he's sold allot of them? The lifters are noisy, maybe I should try a higher octane gas, as a previous review suggests? Hard to, with gas prices the way they are...

Excellent Choice - Highly Recommended

Review

We are very happy with our 2006 Town & Country - great design and truly the best value for the money. For whatever reason they don't have our short-wheel base model in the latest (2008) T&C, the design also took a step backwards. We prefer our "bubble" design look. The fuel economy of the 3.3 L engine is better than of its competitors (even the Honda Odyssey), but we barely get 20 mpg on average out of it. The motor is responsive and well- balanced. So far no issues with it. The only design flaw we found is an unusual brake configuration: Our minivan has disk brakes on front and drum brakes on back - most brake job places have an "all disk brakes" in their database!
