2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Waynesboro, PA, May 09, 2013 04:57I had a 2005 t&c touring and loved it. Until..yep, until...constantly replacing brakes..back hatch went stupid and costly to repair. when I took it to the dealer they said it was electical issues which is know for this van. So, since the back hatch would not work, neither did the locking mechanism of the doors. You had to manully do everything. The back hatch hit me in the head so many times cause it would go up and down. This vehicle overall is a good one, except maybe this year if it did not go so well in the making of it. Replaced rotors and alternator. It had 179,000 miles on it and engine can sound like that "little engine that could"...lol...Honestly, I still liked it. Seating in the back for an Adult is not comfortable at all, especially for long rides. Front seating is great. Sound system just fine. A/c have to keep putting stuff in it. Also had to keep an eye on the transmission fluid even though it had no leak. I have 4 kids ranging 5 and younger all in carseats. So getting in and out if the van for them became a challenge. I now have a Suburban that I just got and like it so far. As for would I get another Chrysler, maybe the newer version, but still Chrysler parts and etc can be costly.
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Mckinney, TX, January 02, 2013 06:39Bought new - have had numerous problems. Largest was A/C going out at 60K. Extended warranty expired 1 month before - Chrysler did pay for most to replace. Have 108K on it - good road trip car, but too many problems to consider buying again. Some of the problems - Brakes, Steering rack, A/C, Window regulators, radiator leaks, alternator (replace twice), Water pump,Battery (4), Oil consumption (put in 1 qt. every 2K).

2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Fombell, PA, August 19, 2012 18:55Bought the van new, @ 28k the fly wheel went!!!! It was under warranty & fixed. 20 k miles later , the van kept bucking & THEY SAID IT WAS NOT SOMETHING COVERED UNDER THE WARRANTY. Several small things...middle driver side door has broken several times(won't open) impossible to get spare tire out from under van, Interior & exterior still look good...the engine died @ 150k. Is it worth repairing again?
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryRed Town, Montgomery Village, MD, July 09, 2012 07:24Awesome, Love it.Rookie
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Waterbury Center, VT, May 03, 2012 19:30Bought new, can't keep brakes on it, rusting along rockers and underneath. Garage kept & well maintained 94000. No more chrysler for me.
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Madisonville, KY, January 12, 2012 13:02We bought it 2 years ago with 128,000 miles on it Ran great for a few months then had to replace power steering pump which was a pain in the @ss. Transmission went out at 150,300 miles. The rubber around the windows kept coming loose and I had to continually have it re-glued. AC went out last summer. Turn signals had some crossed wiring or malfunction (I would turn left one on and the right one would blink instead) or wouldn't work at all... Granted, it had some miles on it, but its ridiculous that it had that many issues. I'm not a fan of Dodge or Chrysler at this point and will never own another.
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Aurora, IL, August 02, 2011 17:50Bought in 2006 with 8,500 on it. now has 42k and the pw windows have been problems, lock on left side rear door does not work, Replaced the stab bar bushing, Lost count on Brake jobs, Now the AC has stopped working. I paid a shop 850 to replace the parts under the dash and a week later the air is blowing hot again. Will have to take back. Uses oil, does not leak but I put a quart in between changes every 3k. Stow and go seats are convient but NOT comfortable to sit on for very long trips. No wonder chryler went bankrupt. I just bought a Toyota to replace my 98 Dodge Van. Chrysler has lost my loyality forever. Bill Aurora Illinois
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Spring, TX, June 12, 2011 10:00The transmission in our van went out at 53,000 and was rebuilt under warrenty at the dealership. I have had numerous problems with the van since purchasing it-air conditioner, fluid system, radiator and of course the transmission. I just had it rebuilt again last week. It currently has 93,000 miles. Two rebuilt transmissions in 4 years. POS van!!! Never again will I buy a Chrylser. Not worth the money to fix or being stranded with kids.
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Mc Clellandtown, PA, July 11, 2010 21:37One ding grows rust Quick. My sister has a 2004 and has break problems too.electric door goes out about once every 2 months.Passenger window just stopped working.My mechanic told me sell as soon as possible.He replaces motors often in as little as 43,000 miles.
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Green Bay, WI, June 15, 2010 08:23Had this one since 2006. Up to 110,000 miles. Never Chrysler again! rusty doors, struts, brakes and rotors, burns oil,idles like a diesel... interior is comfy though. Fair ride and power.
2005 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Las Vegas, NV, June 03, 2010 10:47Bought it in October 2004. 88000 miles. The tranny was repaired under warranty at 69000. At 30000 the dealer put some thingamagig in it. [$45.00 my cost] It ate two sets of brakes[my cost]. It has no frills, no rear a/c so it takes a while to cool down in summer. Las Vegas. It has been a good car. Won't buy another UAW built car.
2005 Chrysler Town & Countrymelandrew, Manassas, VA, January 23, 2010 04:41Our van only has 37,700 miles on it and is garage kept. It is showing significant signs of rust on the rear hatch and along the body seam running along the underside length of the van. In fact water is trapped in there and and trickles out so I still have a puddle in my garage a week after having driven it in the rain! Motor started acting up several weeks ago, check engine light came on, haven't had a chance to hook it up yet. Automatic door opens/closes hard. Problems one shouldn't have with a pampered vehicle in my opinion - won't buy another and wouldn't recommend.Rookie
2005 Chrysler Town & Countryrrd, Mahwah, NJ, May 17, 2009 12:46Front Sway Bar/Stabilizer Links replaced (not included in extended warrenty), althought rear ones are - had to appeal this one and did get some reimbursement. Also, had left window/power problem and substantial brake problems. RRDEnthusiast
2005 Chrysler Town & Countryakaaarus, Saint Peters, MO, December 20, 2008 12:32Stow and go is great. Big seats are comfortable. Entertainment system continues to work as promised. Only has 68000, electric doors broke, rack and pinion broke, water pump replaced (under warranty), engine growls, front end makes a 'click' when the steering wheel is turned, brakes are way undersized (means you have to replace them often), dealer charges $150 to 'reprogram' the transmission. Looks good but the hard engineering was over looked when they designed this van.Enthusiast
