The Town & Country still falls short of the best minivans. High points include a comfortable and settled ride and a quiet, well-equipped cabin that offers considerable versatility. The second- and third-row seats conveniently fold into the floor, a helpful feature that maximizes cargo space, but the folding seats are thin and not very supportive. Though the 283-hp V6 is polished and powerful enough, the transmission is a generation behind, and fuel economy is unimpressive at 17 mpg overall. Everyday handling is sound but becomes sloppy when the van is pushed to its limits. Reliability has been below average.
