Luxury and "minivan" seem an oxymoronic pairing, but the Chrysler Town & Country minivan puts the lie to that notion. Having undergone a total transformation for the 2011 model year, the 2012...

Town & county - solid family car.

2012 Chrysler Town & Country

The nice features of the car is that it has keyless technology so that convenient when your hands are full and you do not need to reach into your purse to unlock the car. Many items are also automated - seats move at a touch of the button. Another feature we really like that the storage compartments that are below the floor. This is great for road trips. And the buttons to open and close the door are also convenient and easy for the kids to use. The kids also enjoy the middle and back seats as they are comfortable and have different plug outlets to plug in their portable entertainment. They also enjoy the built in DVD player as well. I like the ease of folding down the back row seats and setting them up again. I also like the feature of being to turn the back row seats into tailgating seats. The navigation system was great when we first bought the car but over the years, it has been somewhat unreliable even though we had purchased the software update. We've found the at the navigation app on our phone is much more accurate. So this is a feature they should improve or at least provide a built in phone charger so that the driver can use their phone navigation without it draining their phone battery. I found the features of the entertainment console not very user friendly. I haven't figured out how to download digital songs on it. Overall this is a very practical car for a family who is on the road a lot whether that means long road trips on just being in the car a lot to do errands and carpools.

2012 Chrysler Town & Country. Safe and comfortable vehicle the whole family loves!

2012 Chrysler Town & Country Touring

Our Town & Country is extremely comfortable. I like driving it. You sit up high enough to feel like you can see everything so well. We frequently change seating configurations and it is extremely easy to do quickly. It is helpful for traveling as we can Stowe the back row of seats to accommodate our luggage but once we arrive and unload our luggage we can pop the seats back up to accommodate our family that we are visiting to go together on outings. Our convertible car seat uses the latch system and I have noticed that works better in either of the middle captain chairs. If you want it in the back row it latches in the middle and takes up the whole row. The DVD player is a lifesaver. The controls, lights, and touchscreen up front are helpful and give me peace of mind that things are working as they should. We got a flat tire once while driving and the tire pressure popped up on the driver panel and showed it going down quickly. It also displays digital speed which is helpful. I love the rear view reverse camera and don't want to ever drive without one again! I sometimes feel that it's a bit shaky when driving which isn't terrible but is noticed. It also seems like outside noise is a bit loud specifically around the bottoms of the doors but it's not too bad. I love this car and feel safe and comfortable driving in it with my family!

Comfortable, roomy and reliable with great gas mileage.

2012 Chrysler Town & Country

I am a realtor, so I spend a lot of time in my car. I need a big, comfortable, reliable car with good gas mileage, and it is. This is the 4th Dodge/Chrysler minivan I have owned since 1995. I just like the size when I have a crowd, the gas mileage, the reliability, handling, and comfort. It seats 7 comfortably. Clients are able to view the neighborhoods easily with all the windows all around when we are touring properties. The interior has comfortable seats and is easy to enter and exit with the side sliding doors. I get around 20 mpg and 26+ on the highway. And it is easy to parallel park. The rear view camera helps. It has plenty of storage area in the back. All the seats fold down into the floor to make a flat floor for moving large items. A 4'x8' sheet of plywood or drywall fits flat on the floor when the seats are down and you can still shut the back door with room to spare. The back door is over 3' high. The only thing I do not like is it is the first car I have ever had with black carpet and no matter what I do I can't keep the floor clean looking. I will probably buy another one when I replace this one.
