  • I own a 08 Town and Country and they are very similiar. I have had it about a month and I love it. It's a great ride with a lot of features and storage. Not all that great on gas mileage but you expect that if your buying that size vehicle. But I would deffiently reccomednd it. Good luck!! (deff consider back up camera, it's great!!)

  • I would never buy a Dodge minivan because the transmission will always go bad. Don't get a Plymouth either.

  • I wouldn't recommend a Dodge. They don't hold their value at all! I bought a Durango and it wasn't until the final year of payments that I WASN'T upside down on it. On a positive note, I haven't had any engine problems to complain about. A few small things have gone wrong over the years but I was upset when I owned it for 3 years and had an opportunity for a great deal on a new car and I couldn't take advantage of it because I STILL owed more than it was worth. Good luck finding a vehicle though!
