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.
Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

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 occupant restraint control module monitors vehicle occupant and crash data to determine which airbags to deploy when necessary. A software error may result in the airbags deploying from the opposite the side of impact (a left side impact would deploy the right side airbags and vice versa). This would leave the occupant at the point of impact with no protection, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the occupant restraint control module to correct this concern.
The incorrect software may have been installed in the occupant restraint control module (ORC). As a result, the airbags may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash. Improperly deployed airbags can increase the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the ORC module as necessary to correct this concern.

Will never buy another chrysler product, Less than 40,000 miles and no cold air, brakes and rotors needs replaced for the 2nd time Front struts need replaced. What a piece of junk.
I agree with so many, my 2007 chrysler town and country is the worst vehicle I ever bought brand new. It's 2011 and already replaced catalytic convertor, paid for both electric doors to be fixed, door latch on driver side door replaced, brakes make constant noise,gas mileage is awful. DVD player had to be replaced, at least that was still under warranty. Paint on inside front seat door handles...
Stow 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. ...
