Little Known Facts about the Chrysler Town & Country

  • The Chrysler Town & Country has been around for around 73 years. It first came out as a station wagon. Later on, it was sold as a sedan, coupe, and convertible, until in 1989, the Town & Country was re-introduced as a luxury minivan, a rebadged version of the Dodge Caravan minivan. The nameplate still lives up until today.
  • The earliest Town & Country model was released in 1941. It was the first woodie wagon equipped with an all-steel roof, the same roof used in a Chrysler Imperial 8-passenger sedan and limousine. The original woodie Town & Country was last produced in 1950.
  • Car production ceased during World War II; less than 1,000 units were manufactured in 1941 and 1942. After the war, the nameplate survived. However, the Town & Country was no longer sold as a station wagon. Various models of the Town & Country were introduced. The sedan, coupe, and convertible versions were sold from 1947 to 1950. Units produced were much larger compared to the prewar wagon. In 1951, the original woodie was replaced by a steel-bodied full-size rear wheel drive station wagon. Several versions of the station wagon came out until the eighth generation of the Town & Country. For the eighth-generation Town & Country, a convertible version was produced from 1983 to 1986.
  • The Chrysler Town & Country minivan has been around for around 25 years. As the most luxurious minivan of Chrysler at that time, features found in Plymouth and Dodge minivans came as a standard for the first-generation Town & Country, on top of its exclusive amenities. The early Town & Country model was equipped with leather seating surfaces and door trim panels. It had power windows and locks, a luggage rack, and an Infinity sound system.
  • More than 12 million Chrysler minivans were sold, making it the 13th best-selling automotive nameplate worldwide.
  • The Town & Country minivan had been redesigned several times, in 1991, 1996, 2001, and 2008. New technologies were introduced along with many industry firsts. Seating innovations were featured on Chrysler minivans to make the interior more flexible. These include the integrated child safety seats, second row captains chair, Easy-Out Roller Seats, Swivel ‘n Go, and Stow ‘n Go seating.

  • Chrysler Town & Country: Common Concerns

    The Chrysler Town & Country may give you the comfort of an overall smooth ride. It may be a reliable vehicle for some, but this Chrysler model also has its fair share of problems. Here’s a list of some of the common issues with the Chrysler Town & Country:

    Excessive oil consumption

    Some owners of the Chrysler Town & Country have reported problems with the oil level dropping quickly. The common issue is excessive oil consumption, which may be caused by any of the following components: exhaust valve guides, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, valve cover gaskets, and crankshaft seal. The vehicle is consuming more oil than usual if it uses more than a quart per 750 miles for vehicles with over 50,000 miles or more than a quart per 1,000 miles for vehicles with less than 50,000 miles. Some have reported engine knocks as a result of this. Quite surprisingly, some couldn’t find any sign of leak. Others had to change the PVC valve, while some had the oil and filter changed. The vehicle should be checked thoroughly for the underlying cause in order to fix this problem. This should be reported to the dealership.

    Hard shifting and shuddering

    Factory service bulletins have noted problems with shifting harshness and instances of shuddering for the automatic transmission vehicles. Some have experienced delays when shifting and other inconveniences. This should be reported to the dealer and should be inspected and repaired by a qualified mechanic.

    Defective ignition key

    Others have complained about the key failing to start the car, while some have problems with releasing it from the ignition. To get the key out, some had to shift in and out of gears. While this may work, this isn’t a safe solution in every situation. The key may be replaced, but to prevent this from happening again, the ignition should be checked more thoroughly to figure out the cause.

    Faulty power window motor and regulator

    Another common problem with the Town & Country is the faulty power window motor and regulator. The power window switch doesn’t always work, as reported by some owners. The window goes up and down intermittently. To fix the problem, the door panel should be removed. The power window should be checked to figure out the reason for the failure.
