2009 Chrysler Town and Country Limited 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Overall, I've been a big fan of the T&C, but the brake quality on this vehicle is horrible. Had to have the front brakes and rotors replaced twice already, once off the lot and again at 18k. Now the back brakes and rotors need replaced at 20k. Chrysler is helping with the front brakes, but so far not for the back. Love the van, but can't afford to replace the brakes every year..especially when the dealer quotes over $500.


Best Features

Stow and go, dvd, overall storage


Worst Features

2009 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I love the van for its features and room. With that said owning it has ben a nightmare. Short and sweet: van is on 4th set (no lie) of rotors as of 34k miles. These were all replaced under warranty. The last visit (I have been to the dealer in the teens if not over 20 times now) the calipers, pads, and lines were also replaced. Now they squeak and both rear brakes have since had overheating problems. I will be back yet again. Also, both power doors broke, recalls, transmission jerks, engine misses. Good luck. Forget the VW version too. There is a brake issue and I bet you will see a recall down the road. Done let them make you pay for brakes!


Best Features

Kids love the DVD players and screens. I like the backup cam. Power doors nice (if they are working). Has good power and while I feel 18-20 mpg stinks it is better then a truck.


Worst Features

Chrysler needs to take the public's money we gave them and improve quality by 500%. All the loaners I have had that were Chrysler were also poor in build by the way.

2009 Chrysler Town and Country LX 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased used with 13,000 miles. Changed to Mobile 1 oil and mileage ranges 19 to 25 mpg with adequate power when loaded heavily with seats stowed. Now waiting in line with other owners for arrival of a backlogged improved air conditioner part to replace the original one that fails too often. Last year my air conditioner failed and the part was replaced by an identical part, the only available version. This is my 6th Chrysler minivan. It is homely to look at, but a dream to drive. It gets up to speed quietly. The sliding door on the passenger side doesn't operate from inside. Leg room isn't enough for the second-row seats unless front seats are moved forward more than I like.


Best Features

Stow-and-Go, Headlights, comfortable steering wheel.


Worst Features

More aerodynamic styling.

2009 Chrysler Town and Country Limited 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Drives well and with the 4.0 runs like a Greyhound chasing a rabbit. The seats are nice and good for long trips. Seat heaters are welcome in the past winter. All the toys: power doors, lift gate, u- connect, backup camera, memory seats and pedals, etc all work as they are supposed to. But let's talk hard plastic. I took a 2011 Senna for a drive just for fun and guess what the top of the dash was: Hard plastic so this entire thing about hard plastic talk is just bunk. I bought this after my 2007 was sold to a friend and she is still a friend so power up and lets go. It seems the people who count, the owners, think more of the van than the pros so take our word for it: good product!


Best Features

The entire van but if I had to chose some it would be the backup camera, memory, hard drive for music and the ambient lights. 3D on the navigation is nice


Worst Features

Plusher seats would be nice with an up graded leather. The ride is a little soft for me but my wife likes it and it is her car. The computer system is a little hard to understand so we just leave it at temp and direction. I just pay for it.

Review

Oh, boy. Did I make a big mistake... Mine went to service 6 times within 8 months. Now yesterday the A/C began to blow warm air. I wil never ever buy a Chrysler again. The worst car you can imagine. The driver window mulfunctioned. The wiper rotates when the turn signal is turned on (what the heck!). I might contact the company and ask for refund. Oh, by the way, the car is so noisy. Actually nosier than my 1994 Ford Fiesta. People. Don't buy this junk. It doesn't even deserve to be called a junk, because the car was in the shop more than you would guess.


Best Features

Hiding 3rd row seat.


Worst Features

The analog clock on the I/P is a joke. Hard to see and understand what time it is. Cabin noise is industry worst. Reliability is terrible.
