The best mini-van out there right now - and the best value to boot
By theooutback on
2013 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We moved to the 2013 Town and Country last month after three consecutive Toyota Siennas (04, 09, and the new design 11 in AWD).
Where the Sienna's went down in quality from our observations, the T&C is really good so far - not all the incessant rattles that plagued the last Toyota.
The ride is much more comfortable and not floaty like some soft rides can be - they really got it right.
The interior is fantastic - really nicely done and really well equipped - a lesser Toyota or Honda costs much more.
This is also a great MV to drive - great visibility, refined ride and well controlled noise, great car-like (for a MV) driving position.
The three kids love it.
I love it.
My wife loves it.
Excellent list of features in the Touring - NAV, extra travel link information functions like weather, back-up camera (this should be standard for all vehicles), great interior design (leather, stow-n-go, flip-back to make the tailgate a bench), great engine, really well engineered ride quality and quiet, relaxing cabin, standard rear entertainment.
