Burnt once, 2x don't know yet

2011 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Leased a 2008 Chrysler T&C, just returned and leased the 2011 version. Was looking at the Sienna, could not trust a company with more recalls than GM. The Odyssey, notorious for A/T transmission failure, please note 2011 is the same transmission. Fortunately, the 2008, served it's purpose, HOWEVER, we had to replace the brakes 2x driving over 30K miles, quite expensive. So far, so good, build quality is stronger than Fort Knox. FIAT owning Chrysler will be a great thing. (Fortitude In America Tony) Upper management has taken the time and effort to rebuild the minivan, properly for 2011.
2nd and 3rd row shades for 2 toddlers, 280+ horses for passing 18 wheelers. Top notch leather seating for 4. Nice info system behind the steering wheel and simplistic layout of center controls. Safety and parking features 360 degrees around the daddymobile.
Swivel and go was eliminated for 2011, enjoyed playing Texas Hold 'em with the toddlers :) between 3rd and 4th gears, car seems to have difficulty finding a comfort zone (Should this be a concern?) Automobile is nearly 5000 pounds, my gut tells me new brakes every12-15K miles. Standing antenna needs to be done away with.
