Im in shock reading some of the other reviews. I guess ill knock on some wood too. I bought this 2007 Chrysler Town and Country Touring with 95k miles in November of 2012. Even though i havent owned it that long, i have not seen a single problem, love it actually.Great fuel economy as high as 33 on level roads and with no head winds, in most case i get 18 around city driving and 27-29 on the highway. It has a pretty powerful 3.8 and im proud that the same 5 quarts that i put in is the same that come out. Loves the stow n go seating. I can go one with other great things of this van but dont want to piss off the ones that bought bad ones. Hope they dont ever buy a bad lunch, they may not ever eat again lmfao.
Bought this LX van used in 2010. Have had no major problems. changed brakes once. changed a burnt out overhead light. Love everything about it except for the gas mileage averaging 16 city miles. I wish I could improve that some how. It handles the road very nice. People that ride with me says it's a smooth riding van. It's also great for hauling sheet rock and other supplies. It's just great overall. keeping it tuned up,changing eng /trans oils regularly making sure all fluid levels are proper helps it to stay in good shape.For those that have been disappointed maybe they need to see how they are treating their van. I'm blessed.
Also, what engineer designs a cooling system with this old 1970's style coolant "siphon" resiviour design.....my old 1991 Volkswagen Cabriolet convertible has a coolant resiviour where the resiviour cap IS the coolant cap and the resiviour sits above the radiator level, so if the coolant resiviour is full, then the radiator is full....duhhh, when will these american engineers wake up?
I own a "Limited Edition" and have no complaints about the engine's performance (quite good actually), heating, A/C, suspension, and the steering with the right tires is very good too.
The brakes are abysmal. 3 sets of front rotors in less than 70,000 miles and the 4th set is starting to warp. I did find a vented disk for this vehicle that I will use on the next replacement.
Sadly, the transmission has a "slap" in it (same behavior my 1976 Dodge Charger had - probably the same transmission) when rolling on acceleration from 2mph to 5mph and it FAILED completely on 1/16/13 losing forward and reverse.
This is my 9th car, 3rd and last American made car. Seems the words of Thomas Paine borrowed by Lee Iacocca in the '80s prevails - time for American car makers to just get out of the way...
