2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Middletown, DE, July 29, 2012 11:05Just passed 72,000 and have had many recalls and trips to the dealer. Have had problems with the electrical systems, brakes, navigation system, and it's now in the shop again with new problems. I would never buy a Chrysler again. I should have gone with the Honda but wanted to try American after years of avoiding them, big mistake.
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Columbus, IN, June 05, 2012 04:33At 50,000 miles, it started using oil like it was drinking it...no leaks, just using it. I had the oil changed (at the dealership) at 60,000 miles. At 65,000, 3 days before it was scheduled for its next oil change, it threw a rod. Now the dealership is telling me that I need a new engine, which they want me to pay $5,000 for. So, I have a $30,000 van that is 4 yrs old and now needs a new engine that I'm supposed to pay for. Have american car companies completely lost it? They wonder why people are buying foreign cars?
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Rochester, MN, April 17, 2012 08:24Oh Boy What a Lemon!!!!!!! Where do I start. I bought this van new in 2008. Ever since I have replaced brake pads annually. Rotors every other year. It has gone through two sets of new tires. It has NUMEROUS very serious recalls. Two new sets of front wheel bearings. The most recent major fix was this winter at 80,000 miles the head gaskets needed to be redone. Now on average either the lifetime powertrain warranty or a recall has paid for or reimbursed most of my expenses, but this is getting old. Just this past weekend at a routine oil change I found out about the airbag module that needed to be replaced or whatever that was. Waiting for the parts to come in. Also discovered two new oil leaks. Luckily those are covered by the powertrain warranty. But the kick to the gut was that my front struts are completely shot. This vehicle only has 90,000 miles on it. I have never replaced struts on any vehicle I have ever owned in my life all of which lasted well into 200,000 plus miles before I got something new. Too say this vehicle has been nothing but a stress would be an understatement. It has since purchase spent on average every 3 to 4 months in the shop for major fixes of one sort or another. Now struts. What are the odds if I just hold out these too will be recalled? ARGH!!!!!! A warning to anyone considering buying this vehicle used, DO NOT PURCHASE. The only reason I have not sold or traded this vehicle in is I refuse to pass this lemon on and void the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. Chrysler is gonna honor that for life and I'm not gonna let them off the hook for putting out such a piece of crap product by selling this POS to some poor unassuming sap who doesn't know better. :( :( NEVER will I buy another chrysler product and I have been a faithful chrysler owner for over 20 years.
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Portland, OR, March 11, 2012 14:5333000 miles on my 2008 touring Brakes need replacing often, small electrical issues with cutting out stereo, Massive front end problems with struts, brakes, brake sensors, power steering leak, AC hose failed. I have had tons of recalls redone on this van and will be getting rid of it and getting a honda. Terrible vehicle Never by Chrysler or Dodge, this was supposed to be the top of the line and for $30k I expected to get several years of worry free driving, I got a constant headache.
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Auburn, AL, February 20, 2012 18:27we bought this new, had brake pads worn quickly and was recalled and reinbursed. then both sliding doors failed due to plastic guides for the door cables breaking. had a wire harness recall, had a transmission replaced, had a coolant line break and replaced, had front right wheel bearings replaced,now burning excessive oil and no resolution by dealership
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Minneapolis, MN, September 08, 2011 10:04Spent the last half of my time (2.5 years) in the dealership waiting room. Terrible braking system. Have had mine replaced 4 times and rotors twice. Have had 5 Chrysler vans and this is the last. Lots of recalls and problems. Radio, navigation, brakes, A/C, axels, struts, sway bar...you name it....sitting here again waiting for warped rotors to be repaired. At my cost of 210.00. Never again!!!
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, The Dalles, OR, August 06, 2011 09:54WOW.brakes are a big problem all new times two. always make noise and grind will chrysler ever get it.older vans tranny problem and now a rough tranny and bad brakes . not to mention water on your feet when you run the air conditioning . how about standing behind your product.
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Papillion, NE, August 04, 2011 12:44Have 63k miles on this vehicle. Anyone can look up the recalls....Since the brake pads were replaced under recall at 7,000 miles, I've replace the front pads 3 times and the rear once along with all 4 rotors. I am now getting ready to have a complete brake job done on the front because the front right caliper is seizing and hoses collapsing. The brakes have never worked right. The check engine light is on now as well. Since 30,000 miles, it loses about a quart of oil every 3-4,000 miles. The transmission has always slipped and the dealership says they cannot recreate the issue. I will NEVER buy another Chrysler. The sliding passenger doors stay open frequently.

2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Brooklyn, NY, August 28, 2010 05:58Has some problums
2008 Chrysler Town & CountryVisitor, Albuquerque, NM, May 21, 2010 14:39Mileage 48,000. The overall build quality of this vehicle is acceptable, very few rattles and groans compared to some vehicles. However, the brakes are weak relative to the vehicles size and fade quickly, replaced three sets of OE pads and rotors in 40,000 miles. The radio and electrical system is fickle at best, reception is terrible on the radio, and the electrical system in general contains all of Chrysler's electrical gremlins i.e. radio randomly shutting off, trouble with power windows, wipers, gauges failing, etc. At 45,000 miles the transmission is beginning to slip and CV axles are shot. At 30,000 miles the rear struts failed, and the steering has been sluggish since day 1 compared to other models. The rear AC lines run exposed under the vehicle to the back unit, and are easily damaged by any debris on the road, I have replaced these lines twice since purchase. Overall very poor quality vehicle would not purchase again and would not recommend.
