2008 Chrysler Town and Country LX 3.3
This is going to be my running log, as I did with my Ford Aerostar on here.
I just got this van today.
Does eat pads and rotors.
Had a small coolant leak from a cracked plastic housing.
It eats a little oil. But it's manageable.
I now have 83k on it.
Only thing it really needed is a fifth gear for gas mileage. And maybe a bit more torque on the highway, but it is also manageable being it's a van. Not an M6.
So far this is one of the nicer riding vehicles I've ever had. There's lots of room, and the stow and go seats are cool, and when not in use, it's a good storage area. We have 6 kids, and I do the running mostly with them, so it's great for all of them to have some room.
This model has auto doors and hatch, which is nice, and you can still close them manually. The weird thing is it's auto everything, but no auto lights. Funky not to have with everything else.
This 3.3 does pretty well. I don't know what people are expecting when they say it's under powered. It feels nice and smooth to me so far.
I will keep a log of everything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

So far the van is still running well (83k). It does though eat rotors and pads.
It drinks a little oil. I don't know where it goes. It's not leaking. It also had a radiator leak from this little Y connector made of plastic. So I fixed that on my own with a brass Y I made at work. And it solved that. I also moved the assembly away from the exhaust manifold. I don't know why they designed it to be only 2 inches away from it. I redirected it about a foot away further.
