TCC’s Bottom Line
Families that need spaciousness and practicality should definitely look at the 2009 Chrysler Town & Country, which offers an array of useful storage and entertainment features. The 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is loaded with practical features that families on the go will use and appreciate, but it’s not the most luxurious minivan out there.
