You review the '02 Town and Country

OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. — It’s hour eleven of a thirteen-hour road trip. Six other passengers are stowed safely in back, all but one asleep. A light’s on in back in case one wakes up; a bottle of water sits patiently in a cupholder for another. And as Tropical Storm Barry slaps water at the windshield in gallon waves, the Town and Country needles effortlessly through the darkness.

It’s here, somewhere between New Orleans and the panhandle of Florida, that I realize the essential goodness of the minivan and Chrysler’s mastery of it. Only a minivan could handle a duty like this.

All-access pass

Minivans are about access – getting people and things inside, stowing them properly for safe and secure travel, and disgorging them without the limb-mangling antics required of a fewer-doored vehicle. The Chrysler vans have enough doors and power feature to ensure that’s never an issue: two sliding side doors can be powered, as can the tailgate. And though you might deem both a frilly unnecessary accessory, try closing them all during a blinding tropical rainstorm from a dry condo. The only downside is the school-bus-like beeping the tailgate emits before it closes — reinforcing the notion that minivan drivers are also qualified to pilot public transportation.
