Common Problems with the Town and Country

What's Wrong with the Chrysler Town and Country?

Several model years were excellent before Chrysler retired the Town and Country. Unfortunately, there were many model years you should avoid if you're purchasing a pre-owned Town and Country. Those years include 2005, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014. These were the worst years for safety and reliability for Chrysler Town and Country, making them bad deals for pre-owned vehicles. These are the top years to avoid because of electrical and engine problems. They also had problems with blind spot detection, UConnect, and defective active head restraints.

Why You Should Avoid These Model Years

Especially in the 2010 and 2011 model years, the Town and Country had problems with electrical issues like stalling while you're driving, defective onboard computers, and battery drain issues. In 2008, 2010, and 2012 model years, the Town and Country exhibited engine problems, including the engine shutting down while you're driving, engines that wouldn't turn over, and check engine warning lights that kept coming on. The turnover and CEL issues were annoying but generally not dangerous. The engine shutting down while you're driving-much like the stalling issue above–could be very dangerous and result in crashes. The onboard entertainment and navigation system, UConnect, has been giving Town and Country owners problems with rebooting, shutting down, and refusing touch inputs. These aren't critical or dangerous faults, but they can be annoying. Finally, the faulty active head restraints had been known to deploy in rear-end collisions, leaving drivers confused and even concussed.
