Redesigned for 2001, the Town & Country is an upscale cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan. Its also one of the few minivans that offer all-wheel drive. The quiet, spacious interior provides flexible seating and storage. The third-row seat is a 50/50 split bench which is easier to remove than the old one piece bench. The ride is compliant and handling is secure, but the powertrain lacks polish.

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Model Summary
Redesigned for 2001, the Town & Country is an upscale cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan. Its also one of the few minivans that offer all-wheel drive. The quiet, spacious interior provides flexible seating and storage. The third-row seat is a 50/50 split bench which is easier to remove than the old one piece bench. The ride is compliant and handling is secure, but the powertrain lacks polish. Dual power doors are standard, and a power-opening tailgate is optional. An optional center console that can be mounted between either the front or middle seats is clumsy to use.The base 3.3-liter, 180-hp pushrod V6 provides lackluster acceleration and unimpressive fuel economy.
