2014 Chrysler Town and Country Minivan Limited 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is the highest example of a modern vehicle despite the mediocre reports from "experts" - which have done nothing but cast doubts on their objectivity. This is the third T&C we have bought and may well be the best of the lot. Anybody expecting a hotrod will not only be expectedly disappointed, they will be showing their immaturity and ineptitude as well. Let a lady who is accustomed to minivans behind the wheel - and then the keyboard - and get a true feeling of the quality and confidence that this fine vehicle embodies. I would say anybody less than satisfied simply purchased the wrong vehicle!


Favorite Features

Everything - from handling, ride, smooth driving and confident braking on. It is generations ahead of previous T&C models in the standard accessories and far superior to the quality of the foreign competition (which feel "tinny" and childish by comparison - if electronics can be "tinny") But enough about them. This has had absolutely no problems, the fit/finish are superb and mileage is above any previously experienced. With a man (me) behind the wheel, the car is peppy, responsive and quite compliant. At no time have I wished for anything different or noticed any lack.


Suggested Improvements

There are many "free" subscriptions which will not be renewed after their trial period - such as satellite radio, TV and - probably - the satnav, as we are accustomed to using the smartphones going from vehicle to vehicle. Note that this is not really a criticism, just a slight annoyance at the waste and upcoming inevitable deluge of sales pitches as each expire in turn. A more logical alternative would be for the consumer to choose not to activate the feature at the outset. But, then, that would not be in keeping with the marketing strategy of the satellite purveyors, would it?

2014 Chrysler Town and Country Minivan Touring 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I switched from '13 to '14 model for several reasons below: added blind spot monitoring, heated seats, remote starter in harsh winters. This car absolutely rocks. First thing I noticed the steering is now more precise and firm. A rearview camera has obviously been improved as images look much crispier. For me, the biggest complaint for the '13 model was a late shift from 3rd to 4th gear and back while in stop and go traffic which felt like a delayed acceleration. I drove several of these having the same issue. This is no longer the case, so obviously the engineers have made software adjustments and it now drives perfect.


Favorite Features

Stow-n-go seats, lots of room, plenty of power, precise steering


Suggested Improvements

Tire wear. These Yokohamas AVID they put on the vehicle do not last past 20k and I am not a tire burner. Also, I am not particularly thrilled with Garmin software. With everything else looking awesome in this car, Garmin software looks cheap and outdated.

Review

Drove the Odyssey, Sienna and Quest. The Chrysler T&C is the best of the bunch and the best value available. We had been looking for a while and finally narrowed it down to the Nissan Quest and Chrysler T&C. Took two test drives in both. Chrysler was so much better looking than the Quest is the ugliest minivan out there. I really could not get past that. Finally rented a T&C for a 150 mile day trip. The van averaged over 30 MPG. Although the rental was a 2014, it had over 30,000 miles and it still felt, drove and sounded like brand new. That did it for me. We bought a Chrysler Town & Country the next day and paid $3,000 less than a comparably equipped Nissan.


Favorite Features

Great visibility. Powerful engine. Steers straight and true. Good Brakes. Smooth transmission. All the bells and whistles. Loving the fold-into-the floor 2nd & 3rd row seats. 2nd row windows go down. 3rd row vent windows open at the touch of a button. U-Connect AM-FM-Satellite radio with hard drive and external input. Also has built-in DVD player and back-up camera. Blue-Tooth phones can be used hands-free through radio with extremely clear reception. Car includes Garmin Navigation system, electric doors and .


Suggested Improvements

Would prefer gear shifter be located on steering column rather than on dashboard. Driver Info Center could be more intuitive and easier to use. Chrysler ride could be smoother like the Nissan. Chrysler steering is tight like a sports car - wish it had a little more play. Frames around HVAC blower vents on dashboard should be flat black instead of chrome because chrome trim reflects in both rear view mirrors - very distracting. Would have liked storage pockets on backs of front seats.

Review

This car is average in every category except for comfort, where it gets a resounding 1 out of 5 in my book. The back seats have headrests that angle forward, making about a 140-150 degree angle with the seatback. Additionally, they're about as receptive to human heads as frying pans and are not adjustable. One would think back seat comfort would be important in a car where buyers will almost definitely be buying the vehicle specifically for the purpose of having comfortable back seats, but alas, Chryster disagrees. Again, the rest of the car is exactly what you'd expect for the price and make: ok MPG, ok outward and inward appearance, ok sound system. Below average shock absorption as well.


Favorite Features

Eco feature, ability to turn off high-voltage charging to save gas, stylish analog clock on dash


Suggested Improvements

In the name of all that is holy, switch out the frying pan headrests for something that could even be mildly considered a responsible resting place for our most important body parts. Honestly, I would suggest firing everyone who was involved in designing this van for scrapping all of the affordable fixes that could have been enjoyed in a low price vehicle in exchange for superfluous features like outlets that are now standard in higher-end vehicles. In other words, don't be so busy pretending to be high-end that you forget to make a good van.

Review

My family recently rented this for an 800 mile trip. Let me tell you, it is way over priced! Every piece of interior trim is flimsy plastic. At highway speeds everything vibrates. This vehicle has 10k miles and honestly feels like it has 100k. The seats are rock hard and I just could never justify spending 30k on this vehicle. It does have great tech inside, along with a more than adequate engine for a mini van. Just disappointed that every piece on the inside is fake and flimsy. Fake wood trim, fake leather seats, just not good.


Favorite Features

Engine, Looks, technology


Suggested Improvements

Improve ride quality, seat quality, overall build quality
