Best MiniVan out there
By duraflex on
2014 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
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.
Steers straight and true.
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 .
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.
