I bought mt 2009 T&C used with 47,000 miles. I did a test drive and of course it drove wonderfully. The dealership was really anxious to get me into the vehicle. I too experience transmission issues. slow sluggish hesitant when cold. acts like it is low on trans fluid. Crysler dealer checked & said they put some part on it and its fixed. $110.00 2 weeks after I bought it... It still tries to shift to fast. If you drive like a grandmaw it acts ok. But if you drive it normal with some good acceleration it kinda worries me. I too love this van I just wish I could get a straight answer/truthful answer about the trans.. They say I have a loaded warranty. Wierd, It didn't pay for the 110.00 part..

I love the van for its features and room. With that said owning it has ben a nightmare. Short and sweet: van is on 4th set (no lie) of rotors as of 34k miles. These were all replaced under warranty. The last visit (I have been to the dealer in the teens if not over 20 times now) the calipers, pads, and lines were also replaced. Now they squeak and both rear brakes have since had overheating problems. I will be back yet again. Also, both power doors broke, recalls, transmission jerks, engine misses. Good luck. Forget the VW version too. There is a brake issue and I bet you will see a recall down the road. Done let them make you pay for brakes!

2 years and 24000 miles later I am very satisfied. I didn't buy into the Japanese hype. I service it when it tells me to and my dealer takes care of any recalls. I barely lift a finger. Tons of space, lots of power. Took it to Florida from Michigan twice and not a single hitch. I am impressed so far. Good job Chrysler.

this is a 4L engine and the performance is great but even driving very conservately the mileage is not as advertised. Also the windshield is the most fragile I have ever experienced. Overall it is A very comfortable and fun vehicle to own.

I was recently in a 50 mph head-on collision with my 09 T&C. My 8 yr old son and I walked away without a scratch. The other car (G6 or Grand- Am) came across into our lane. It impacted just outside of the driver frame rail pushing the tire and axle up under the floor pan. Front end was destroyed, driver door slightly deformed but driven back into slider door. Driver A-Piller kinked. Passenger fender moved away from vehicle. Air bags deployed. Driver door encroached in just a bit. Other than that, the entire cockpit stayed in tact (to the naked eye). My son was in the seat behind my and nothing got even close to him. Fit and finish be damned, they put the money in the right place!!!

I have a large family (5 children, all under 12yrs) so our options are limited. In the past, we have had a Ford Expedition, and a GMC Savana. The Town & Country is the most fuel efficient and kid friendly family vehicle we have ever owned.
