The A/C is not cooling
The Passenger Front Door molding was replaced, but it has the same visible open gap with the side of the door

We bought the touring edition with DVD & Navigation systems. It has turned out to be an excellent purchase and we are very happy with it, and our kids love it.
It seems Chrysler thought of everything. Comfort, features, functionality, and form are all superb.
Just a few examples - the stow-and-go seats that fold into the floor are key. I don't believe other (more expensive) models have a similiar concept yet. The back seat folds over for seating in the back. After using the rear-view camera you will wonder how you lived without it.
Only 2 nitpicks : Performance - it's not a good fit for a lead foot but hey, it's a minivan after all, so what can you expect? I would also like to see better gas mileage - this van does 18 MPG which is typical for a minivan but still seems low.
2011 Town & Country Touring
T&CX3 - Orlando, FL10/17/2012
This is my third Town & Country. The first was a 1999 Limited 3.8 liter (pros: comfortable, versatile, dependable - cons: horrible brakes). The second was a 2001 LXi 3.8 liter (same pros plus better handling and much better brakes). This 2011 blows the last two away! The 3.6 liter V-6 is much more powerful and gets better mileage. The 2001 averaged 15 in town and 21 on the highway. The 2011 is returning 16 in town and 25 on the highway. It brakes very well - Chrysler finally matched the brakes to the size of the vehicle. Acceleration is smooth and it handles very well - no sports car, but it isn't scary like the older vans. I like the versatility of the stow & go, although there are tradeoffs from the old flip & fold seats. I like the level of standard technology - I'm still figuring out how several features work, but I love the backup camera, blind spot monitoring, built in DVD, Sirius radio, tilt/telescope wheel, and adjustable peddles. I still prefer the style of the 2001, but this one is growing on me. I looked at the 2008 - 2010 models and was unimpressed. The changes to the 2011 are dramatic in terms of quality and content as well as handling and braking. If this 2011 is a true indicator of where the new Chrysler is going then I'm a believer!
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
Do frigid temperatures and harsh weather leave you cold on the idea of braving the elements in your car? When you’re piloting a vehicle that’s up to the task, wintertime driving isn’t so much of a challenge. Instead, it can be fun!
