2010 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
This version of the Chrysler Town & Country is far better than the model it replaced. Still, despite some notable features, they didn’t rise to the level needed to compete against better models from Japan and South Korea. We tested the high-end Town & Country Limited. Safety features added with this model include standard stability control and curtain airbags. The ride has also been improved.

K S., MI (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Good acceleration for the year and type of vehicle, handling is also good considering the size, height and heft, even taking high-speed on-ramps and turns are no issue, neither is getting up to speed with the 4.0 V6."

Kasper L., ID (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"4.0 engine is great"

Anonymous, FL (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Overall a very nice anfdreliable, so far, vehicle. Only drawback is the lack of AWD. Have had AWD Chrysler vans since they first made them, and really miss it on a vehicle with the 4.0L engine, especially."

SALVATORE P., FL (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"The van has very good acceleration and handles like a car."

MICHAEL B., VA (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Great improvement over 1980s & 1990s models since 6 cylinder engine available."

S C., WI (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Proficient handling, but the transmission is geared too low in 1-3. The motor revs to 3500 rpm under normal driving conditions when accelerating from a stop in the first 3 gears. It makes me feel like I'm thrashing the engine."

Anonymous, MI (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"It's has captain chairs, love the stow and go. It sounds like a wind tunnel compared 2 Buick . But I payed $21000 cash 4 the van and besides 1 sensor,which I fixed myself. We just put on 6000 mile trip of which I got 24-21 mpg.i also put on air shocks and electric brake.we used 2 pull a 18' Camper. The best part is the height. More then car,less then suv. Can put a full sheet of plywood, load of firewood. I will always own a van from know on."

Dan B., WI (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

Eric F., CA (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Smooth ride, very comfortable seats, plenty of room"

Anonymous, NJ (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"This minivan is approaching nine years old and continues to be quiet, comfortable and smooth on the highway. It is easy to maneuver on city streets and congested parking lots. If it had adaptive cruise control, Apple Car Play and got 15% better gas mileage we would keep it forever!"

Ellis M., FL (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"seats are very comfortable and it drives just like a car"

David S., MN (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"The Town & Country is still very comfortable to drive. With age it is getting a little noisier, but still not bad. Periodic maintenance keeps up with this."

Rolland M., TX (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"I like the comfort, noise, and ride of my vehicle. It is very comfortable and quiet."

Judy K., FL (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"I like the way the seats put me above the traffic."

Peter K., NJ (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"We no longer have children at home, but I do dog agility training and competition for fun. This car can easily fit the crates and stuff that I need for these activities and for traveling long distances with the dogs. On the highway, exterior (wind) noise, can be annoying. The front seats are comfortable, the stow in the floor rear seats aren't, but I hardly use them. The car rides well, but acceleration is sluggish and steering isn't super responsive. (My previous car, a Volvo wagon, handled and accelerated much better).The car doesn't handle well at all on snow and ice. If I didn't need this car for dog agility, etc, I would buy a smaller, more fuel efficient and agile car and am looking for my next car, since this one has over 160,000 miles on it now."

"Have electric for both front seats. Have leather seats. The back rear seat is hard to get in and out of for older people but fine for kids."

Anonymous, CA (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Comfortable front seats, armrests could be better. 2nd row seats are a little thin for adults, 3rd row can seat 3 teenagers in a punch. Noise is not bad for the size and ride is comfortable without being too soft for high-speed turns."

Kasper L., ID (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"utility of all interior space"

John D., CA (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Ease of getting in and out and comfortable ride"

K S., MI (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Great Travel vehicle for Family with 3 children and a dumb dog. Stow and go options and DEEP trunk area behind the hatch back is perfect for groceries, travel gear and needs, and rider capacity is perfect as school bus to bring 3+ children to school and back."

Bill E., AZ (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"I've only had the car for a month....the only thing I would change would be the seat...it is manual control and I would have preferred electric."

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"This is truly the most versatile and useful minivan, what you sacrifice in 1-2mpg and refinement is paid 100 times over amazing utility. With the Stow n Go seats I routinely move gear for 25 Boy Scouts in just this van, and can then move 6 of them to activities 5 minutes after we empty the van. No Honda, Nissan, or Toyota van operated by our troop can match the Town & Country in people and gear moving capability"

Greg G., MI (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"I love the room for hauling things on our migrations to and from Florida while getting excellent mileage in this a Touring model. High driving at a consistent 75MPH Iget 28+MPG. Original Continental brand tires had tred remaining when replaced at72000 miles.Only negative is had to pay $900 to dealer to repair sliding pasenger side door opener and now the tailgate automatic door is not working. Dealer said another $900 to fix it. Am opening it manually."

Gary M., MI (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"Considering that the 2010 Town and Country would be 8 years old if bought now, I would hope that anyone who bought one would insist on all repair and maintenance records before buying one. It is a good value for what it is now, a larger capacity car, but I doubt that currently it would be a good value in the long run."

"The Wife LOVES her car... can't get her out of it... still tells everyone how great it is... Our kids are ALL GROWN and gone, but we still love the minivan for it's size, carrying ,etc.... Seems reliable, especially since we bought it knowing the dealer would pick up/drop off if serviced AND PROVIDE temp car during this period. Haven't had to do so!"

Anonymous, PA (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"The van has been worked very hard and with only a few small problems overall the van has given my money's worth. The only thing I can complain about is the breaks should last longer but that could be the quality of the replacement parts."

MICHAEL B., VA (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"A van is not cool, but it is excellent transportation. It is a very flexible car, we can carry 6 to 7 passengers."

DONALD J., MN (2010 Chrysler Town & Country)

"The Chrysler vans are a good design, but the dealer doesn't stand behind the product. It's almost as if I was being blamed for buying a Chrysler every time I need something fixed, so I've stopped going to the dealer since the warranty expired. With no relationship with the dealer, they've lost any chance of me trading-in on another Chrysler. The van is good - the dealer relationship is worthless."
