2010 Chrysler Town & Country Problems
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.
2010 Chrysler Town & Country Questions
When key is in ignition there is a high pitch streaming sound that continues while driving. The sound is coming from the ignition or steering wheel, and doesn't shut off, no affect on the drive? What could it be?
Many times I will pull out of a parking lot and the car will not shift beyond 3rd gear and will not come out of 3rd gear. Manual shift does not work. Only fix is to shut off the engine and restart. This is dangerous when merging on to a hiway.
It slips or shudders in reverse up hill or with my light trailer attached. I was told others do the same thing, not to worry.
2010 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.
The ignition key could inadvertently rotate from the "run" to the "accessory" position, causing the engine to shut off without warning. If the engine shuts off while driving, vehicle performance will be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the "WIN" module to correct this concern. The recall is expected to begin in April, 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L02.

Constant flow of warm air from vents, apparently air being heated by engine, even wh...
