Chrysler Town & Country Problems
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.
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.
Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

Chrysler Town & Country Reviews
Quite possibly the worst vehicle I have ever owned.
Run, Run away fast. Tires, brakes, engine, electrical, radiator leaks and replacement, CV joints. doors , Satellite radio. If its on this Chrysler it needs to be replaced or is about to break. Chrysler needs to be sued over this vehicle. That about sums it up.
rear tail lights do not flash when unlock is keyed from remote.
Done with chrysler
Since purchasing the 2005 town and country, we had to replace the transmission twice, water leaked into the front like figure, when using the right signal to turn, the left one comes on. The sliding door hinge on the rear passengers side COMPLETE broke off when opening it. We just lifted it and closed it to be locked as of today. So all entering is done through the back drivers side of the sliding door. After turning on the heater/air conditioner, it kicks in when ever it feels like it. Altenator is dead, again. Getting it fixed, only transportation to and from work. Of all the work put into this, can't afford to even think of investing into another vehicle, at this time.
