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.

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.

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.

2008 Chrysler Town & Country Recalls

If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.

Condensation from the AC (HVAC) system may leak from the drain grommet onto the occupant restraint control (ORC) module. This can lead to illumination of the airbag warning light and/or inadvertent airbag deployment. An inadvertent airbag deployment could result in injury and/or a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the affected airbag module to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin during August of 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L01.

Chrysler is recalling certain 2008 Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles to correct a possible water leak from the heating and A/C (HVAC) drain grommet. The water intrusion may cause illumination of the air bag light or inadvertent air bag deployment. Dealers will replace the HVAC drain grommet free of charge.
