It is very family friendly.

There is plenty of room for a family to fit very comfortably. There is extra storage beneath the middle seats feet which can be very handy in some circumstances. The seats can be adjusted to fit many needs from reclining and being lied down for easy hauling of bigger objects. Sliding doors have are very nice if you have full hands and just have to press a button on your keypad. But when they have a glitch and stop functioning they are very hard to open and close. Starts in cold weather typically in the negatives without a block heater. When it is to cold the speedometer will freeze up on occasion so you don't know what speed your going. My specific rides low to the ground which causes a lot of underneath catching entering and exiting parking lots. Running board are a waste of money also. Tire air pressure sensor is way to sensitive. Love the leather interior as far as being easier to clean. But cloth material is warmer in the winter and seems to hold up longer to wear and tear. The heated seat feature in the front seats are also a nice feature. I don't feel the whole van stays warm enough and circulates as well as it could compared to other vans in winter weather.

My 2005 Chrysler town and country stow and go is a very reliable van.

I have a 2005 Chrysler town and country it is very reliable for me. The only time it has been in the garage is to change the oil, filters. Check all the things that have to be checked and changed. It has seats for seven people. The seats fold down and you can haul sheets of plywood or any thing else that is big as the floor is level. I love the performance and the looks of it. As for any maintenance done on it like I said before is oil changes, filter changes and air filters is done every three thousand miles. The seats are comfortable as they adjust to your liking. My vehicle has power seats and running boards on it also. If and when I will need a new vehicle I would want another one like it. I get good mileage about twenty four miles per gallon. I have had work done on it like tires changed, oil changed. And other things for general maintenance. No big things have been needed.

That the drum breaks could completely lock up while driving down the road.

The town and country we own is a very nice van, it runs smoothly most of the time, even though it has over 200, 000 miles on it. We bought this vehicle used and the back brakes locked up on us shortly after. We had to have it towed home and fixed a our house. The cloth interior on the ceiling has been fixed by us, and is falling down yet again, our drivers side window has come off track, and the keepers for the plastic pieces on the interior of the door has also broken and the bulb behind the gas light is out. Also, our headlights have all gone out though I believe it is because of regular use and it is more time to replace. It's not a luxury vehicle and has no special features, but the radio and CD player work well, all of the controls for the locks and windows work fine and overall seems to be reliable.
