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