You'll Like The 2009 Chrysler Town & Country If...

With features like an available Swivel 'n Go setup that configures into a table for four people and dual, independent video monitors that can display DVD movies, video games or satellite-based SIRIUS Backseat TV, Chrysler's fifth-generation minivan is the obvious choice for satisfying rear-seat riders.

The storage is unbelievable. It holds so much stuff!

Great car. Love the storage room and ability to put seats up and down depending on what I'm carrying around and how many people are riding with me. Built in DVD players, headphones, a flashlight, and an electrical plus add to the luxuriousness. It has performed well with regular maintenance but has a recurring problem with the tire pressure management system. It's been in the shop for it 7 or 8 times and they've replaced everything they can think of but the system warning still goes off at least once a day. It goes away on its own but always comes back again. Mechanic says it's typical of the Town & Country.

I love that it can fit 7 people easily, and that you can stow the seats if you need that extra space. It is pretty decent for gas mileage and the kids love the built in DVD player. The down side is after our van hit the 100k mark everything started going out on it. Regular maintenance is to be expected but regular repair fees kind of stinks. Also, if you live in an environment where snow, freezing rain or below zero temperatures occur beware. The doors automatic doors love to freeze shut or just decide to stop working once the weather gets cold.

I love my car. It's a 2009 Chrysler town and country. I love the hidden compartments underneath the seats for folding the chairs down underneath them. I think this is a really cool feature and it really came in handy when I had to help my sister move. I was really able to pack a lot of stuff in my van. A downside is I had to use my spare tire and it maybe a easy fix but i don't know how to Install back under my car where it was kept. Other then that it's a great van the best I had so far and I have had about 3 minivans.

Electrical System Jun 26, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 26, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V373000
Summary:
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Dodge Journey vehicles manufactured June 29, 2007, to June 17, 2010, and 2008-2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country vehicles manufactured January 26, 2007, to June 17, 2010. Road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequence:
If the ignition key inadvertently moves into the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off, which will then depower various key safety systems including but not limited to air bags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will modify the ignition switch, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is L25. Note: This is an expansion of recall 11V-139.
