I got a great deal on this car from my grandfather-in-law. Although I never saw myself as a "van person", I have to say that I'm more than satisfied with my Chrysler Town and Country. It's large enough to camp in (just blow up a mattress in the back). And despite it's size, it still gets better gas mileage than my previous car (a 1998 Ford Taurus). I've officially converted!
Story
We always take Big Blue camping with us. We sleep in the back on an air mattress and save gobs of money by renting a camp site rather than a hotel.
Pros
The most important feature for me is the S P A C E! I love being able to remove the seats and take the van camping, or biking, or to the dog park. I don't even use the seats, but my friends tell me they are quite comfortable when they sit on them in my garage.
Cons
Here are the downsides, in my opinion: The seats are fairly heavy and don't fold into the floor, so don't expect 2014 ease-of-use here. These vehicles (along with a lot of other Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge models) seem to have an issue with the engine shutting off when you slow down too hard. It can be pretty scary if you're turning off of a busy street and your power steering suddenly goes out. Luckily, all the car needed was a replacement of the EGR valve (cost $80 for the part, and free labor from my husband).

My vehicle is a conversion van for a person in a wheelchair. It has a 10-inch lowered floor and a fold-out ramp from the door on the passenger side. It was previously a rental car and had 18K miles on it before it was converted up in Atlanta. I got it in December of 2005 What I like about it is that it has been reliable for the last 8.5 Years, and still runs very good. It has never required major maintenance, and I expect to keep it for years to come. The only replacements we had to do was to replace the headliner, which started coming down over the visors.
Story
We drove a couple of 800 mile trips to Disney World in the past few years. It is a long drive from our home in Northwest Florida, but this vehicle did not make the drive unbearable. I am the one who is disabled, and traveling is now very hard for me, so we don't do that any more. The vehicle serves its purpose, and I am glad I have it.
Pros
I like the automatic doors and the automatic rear hatch. The air conditioner works well. It came with a decent entertainment package. It is very comfortable to ride in.
Cons
The headliner started coming down about 1.5 Years ago, and was hanging in front of the driver/passenger field of vision. We had a new headliner installed to fix this. The left side passenger door does not function correctly any more. This may be partly due to an accident where that side of the vehicle was t-boned by another car about 3 years ago.

We have a family of six so after much review from the many minivan makes and models, we decided to go with the town and country because it fit our needs. both sliding doors are automatic as well as the trunk. The seats fold into the stow and go compartments, instead of having to be removed. Also the stow and go compartments are great for road trips, my kids aren't smooshed by all the luggage. Another big plus about this van is the separate heating/cooling systems. As I'm sitting in the passenger seat I can set my temperature to hot, since I'm always cold, and my husband who is driving can set his lower and be comfortable. My kids in the back can also adjust their temperatures. All the seats lean back for extra comfort on long trips.
Story
We have a ton of fun stories in our van within the first year of owning it. We bought it used and fell in love. with a family of six, our kids ages 14, 13, 8,and 2, this was our first minivan. We can finally drive around as a family, we only had a five passenger car before, so this was a big change. We live in NY and our first trip was to Allentown, Pennsylvania, to go snow tubing. We booked a... (more)
Pros
Our van has a 6 DVD changer. We always drive to other states and spend a lot of time in our van. The DVD player helps keep the little ones quiet while we drive. Another big plus is the separate temperature controls, I'm always cold but my husband is usually warm so we have our happy mediums. The automatic doors are great too I can jump in the car and when the kids are buckled press a button and close and lock the doors. The hazard lights also beeping warning also alerts others that my side doors are opening/closing. The best thing is the stow and go compartments, my kids store toys and gam... (more)
Cons
If automatic start was a standard feature, I would have given it a 10. This van is great but automatic start would've sealed it. This model also has a lot of recalls but Chrysler is good at replacing them. My husband wanted to upgrade the entertainment center to a flip screen stereo DVD player but was told by professional car stereo installer that if we upgraded the stereo we would lose control of the Stock DVD player.
