2006 Chrysler Town & Country Problems

Shifting Harshness and Shuddering Issue

Shifting harshness and shuddering issues related to the operation of the automatic transmission have been addressed by factory service bulletins. The shuddering can feel like the vehicle is being driven over rumble strips.

Excess Oil Consumption Issue

Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.

Key May Not Start Car or Release From Ignition

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

2006 Chrysler Town & Country Recalls

Airbag Warning Light May Illuminate

Under certain environmental conditions, a front crash sensor for the airbag system may crack, allowing water intrusion. This can cause the sensor to fail and illuminate the airbag warning light. The airbag system may not deploy as designed when the airbag warning light is on, increasing the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected sensors with ones of a new design. This recall is expected to begin during June 2010. The Chrysler recall number is J38.

Windshield Wiper Motor May Fail

The front windshield wiper motor armature shaft may break. Loss of windshield wiping capability could occur, resulting in the driver's vision being obscured, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin during June and July of 2006. The Chrysler recall number is F10.

I purchased a Limited with 55k in July 2013.. I have 60k on it now (Dec 2013). This thing has turned me into a driveway mechanic... It rides and drives great... when it runs and I'm not chasing mechanical issues with it. Driving it off the lot, I experienced a shudder at about 40mph--- the selling dealer split the cost of replacing the Torque Converter, which fixed the shudder. Apparently...
