Good Car but Chrysler should be ashamed of a few things
By owner18 on


2010 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Good car. Gas mileage is not as good as advertised but the van is a heavy/big van. Two things that are a joke that they are an issue. First, the Y connection from the heater core is made out of plastic. This apparently goes bad about 4 years/80k mile range. It will crack and leak where the molded plastic comes together. I fixed with a metal plumbing T connection, some connectors, and new heater hose for about $8. This should be a recalled defect. Also, there is a rattle that sounds like it's coming from the doors. It's not. It's coming from the brake lines. I added 5/8" rubber hose to help cushion the two lines from squeaking. I replace these bad engineer designs for about $10.

Favorite Features

Great features for a family.

Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the plastic Y connectors that connect the heater core. You can fix for $8. Dealer wants $260...not sure what they're doing as it is a 10 minute fix. Also, add some insulation to keep the brake lines from squeaking together. I used 5/8" rubber hose to separate (not wrap) the lines. Amazingly, the noise disappeared.

Is the heater core easy to get to? from under the hood or under the dash?
