2010 Chrysler Town and Country 3.8


Good value as long as you never have to see a dealership


Nothing except a light bulb that took two minutes to replace.

General Comments:

This is, generally speaking, a good car. It's a tad quirky and the dealerships around here are pretty terrible. We chose the Chrysler for the stow and go seating and the general size of the van. The gas mileage isn't great around town, but it has good power, so there has to be a trade off someplace. The Chrysler transmission is clunk, but that's not a problem for me as long as it's reliable and will go for a long time. The rear A/C is a bonus since my wife hauls show dogs in the van.

Overall we really like the van and hope to drive it for a few years. The automatic doors and rear hatch are really cool. Once the seating is folded into the floors, there is a ton of storage in the van. The stereo is the best of any car we have ever owned.

The van does have a safety recall for the ignition switch. I called the local Dodge/Chrysler dealer and all they will say is that they will check and call me back, which they have yet to ever do. We bought our van from the Credit Union Auto Buying service and had a real good experience. But, the actual Chrysler dealer is a bad experience so far, which sadly is exactly what I had heard about them from other Dodge/Chrysler owners. I do all my own repairs, so fixing the van in the future shouldn't ever be a problem, but this factory safety recall is something they have to do, and so far they give every indication that they will never get it done.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Just an update, it's been 14 months. The dealer still hasn't done the safety recall. The van itself has been great. We have taken it on several long-ish road trips and it has been perfect-ish. Only had to replace a bulb. Clearly there's no teeth to a safety recall and the dealer cares not at all.

My wife was involved in an accident and the van was totaled. She wasn't injured. We are looking for another 5th gen Chrysler van now, 2010 or later. The 3.8 used a little oil, but nothing noteworthy. We had developed a lot of trust in that van and hope to have another one very soon.

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
