2005 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Purchased the vehicle new.
70K+ miles later, it is the only vehicle I have ever owned that I feel is worth the money.
The ONLY problems we have had with it are the EGR valve and brakes wearing out sooner than they should.
Everything else works like new on.
No electronic failures whatsoever.
Starts runs and drives like a car with only 10k miles.
Have driven across country twice with it, drive it daily and it is perfectly suited to both tasks.

Best Features

It drives well, handles well, feels much smaller than it is to drive and much larger than it is to ride in. The DVD system was great with the kids on long trips. Stow & Go system rocks, from transporting good from Home Depot to flipping the backseats over to sit and watch fireworks on the Fourth of July (now a tradition for us).

Worst Features

The breaks could be beefed up a bit so they don't wear so quickly in stop and go driving. The only real complaint though? Could the engineers not have moved the alternator bracket 2mm so that you could change the EGR valve without taking off the alternator? Ug.
