2010 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 3.8


So far we're happy


Nothing yet.

General Comments:

We just bought this used, 2010 Chrysler Town and Country touring. It has high mileage, but was extremely clean inside and out, and everything works. This is my wife's van. She wanted a Chrysler/Dodge for hauling dogs because it has rear air and dark tinted windows. I don't know who owned this van, but it shows no wear that we could find and must have been a company car, as the normal child wear and tear isn't there at all.

So far I have been satisfied with how comfortable the van is, both to drive and ride in. The stereo is better than what was in the Volvo, as is the air conditioner. The van feels like a heavy vehicle compared to the Volvo wagon, as I'm sure it is. The van is amazingly roomy, even better than we had hoped. We chose the Chrysler because all of my wife's dog show friends have Chryslers (except one who has a Toyota) and they all love their vans. I do love the fold down seats. One of the dog show folks is going on 300,000 miles on his van with no major repairs (still on original engine and transmission). We tend to be gentle drivers and I'm real regular on preventive maintenance, so I anticipate several years of good service from this van. If I get 75-80,000 out of it, I'll be happy for what we paid. And, if it needs a radiator, brakes, etc.. down the road, I'll not fret over it. I can DIY that stuff.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

2010 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 3.5 Liter gas


Excellent family van, just watch for problems


The engine shutters when shifted into reverse and you press on the gas pedal; it worries my wife. She thinks that there is a very serious problem with the van. We already took it to the dealer, and they can't replicate the problem. Joy.

The left passenger sliding door became stuck this morning, and we had to shut it manually. Pulled on the handle like usual to open, and no problems since.

The Stow N' Go Seating is difficult/impossible to work. I still have not figured it out, even after following the instructions in the owner's manual.

General Comments:

The van has been running well since we purchased it. We sold our '92 Explorer to finish off the down-payment on our new van. So far, there have only been a few problems.

We enjoy the manual shift capabilities. It makes for some fun driving at times, we have actually burned some rubber as well.

Sometimes the get-up-and-go on hills isn't as great as it was on the Explorer. We just finished our annual trip to Upstate New York, where the hills are pretty large, and it was a little slow with all of our gear.

Still haven't tested it in NYC, or the snow, so let's hope that it handles well than. I don't want to ruin this van.

We love the seats, they are amazingly comfortable!

This is from the original poster:

Well we had a few more problems with the driver's sliding door getting stuck. One day when we had put our twin sons in their car seats, the door would not close with the button. You aren't supposed to close power doors with manual power because it can ruin the door, but we had to.

We also found a problem with a rattle coming from the cupholder section. Turns out a screw had come loose, and just needed to be tightened.

We took the Van to our dealership, Warnock Dodge Chrysler Jeep, and they replaced a part in the door under the warranty, I don't remember what it is called, but we haven't had the problem return since.
