How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The Basics:

TheCarConnection.com’s automotive experts researched reviews from the Web’s most respected sites and combined these findings with our own to compile this conclusive appraisal of the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country. This minivan is worthy of consideration even in the face of stiff competition from SUVs, crossovers, and (certainly) other minivans.

While Ford Motor Company and General Motors have abandoned the minivan market to concentrate on SUVs and crossovers, Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, and Kia still see the segment as a good place to find buyers. Chrysler thinks so too, and its 2008 Town & Country minivan is the company’s fifth-generation people mover and easily the company’s best-ever segment effort. Frankly, minivans may be the most practical way to transport lots of people and/or cargo. TheCarConnection.com finds the one-box designs more sensible than most SUVs or crossovers because those vehicles often sacrifice simplicity, room, and flexibility for style.

The Town & Country’s new squared-off styling represents an edgy departure from the Clorox-bottle shape of the previous generation. Particularly from the rear, the van’s all-new boxy design looks as if it were artfully drawn with a rafter square. However, the most important features and refinements are found in the quiet interior, where Chrysler has packed more features than any competitor, including Sirius Satellite TV, twin LCD monitors (second and third rows), and Swivel ‘n Go seating.

Likes:

  • Family-friendly interior features such as satellite TV
  • Flexible seating/cargo configurations
  • Quiet ride
  • Six-speed automatic with optional V-6 engines
  • Optional LED interior lights

Dislikes:

  • Plasticky interior
  • Flimsy gear selector lever feel
  • Smallish navigation screen
