Buyer Beware Brake Life

2008 Chrysler Town and Country LX 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


We purchased a certified used 2008 T&C LX with 3000 miles in January. New brakes and rotors required at 17K miles. Based on other online reviews and some quick math, it became apparent we would have to pay for a complete brake replacement every 15K miles or so. Wear items are not covered under warranty so we were looking at a $800 hit every year. I can understand a brake replacement at 30-40K but not annually. Clearly there is a design problem with the 2008s. After much back and forth with the dealer and Chrysler corporate, we agreed to a $250 deductible. Once fixed, we traded in vehicle. Sorry Chrysler!

Best Features

HD radio, stow-n-go, dealer-installed remote starter

Worst Features

Come clean about brake issue like other manufacturers. Admit there is a problem and help the customer. For example, Honda acknowledged a design issue with 2001 Ody transmission and paid for full replacements. Inconvenient, but at least honest.
