“Safety for your loved ones.”
USAToday

Safety is a leading priority for those shopping minivans. All the reviews we studied pointed to the long list of safety features included on the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country. USAToday said, “Intended as family machines, the new vans rightly have the array of bags and electronic nannies you associate with safety for your loved ones.”

Cars.com listed key items: “Standard safety features include side curtain airbags for all three seat rows, which also deploy in a rollover. There's also standard antilock brakes, traction control and an electronic stability system. There are two options to ease backing up and parking: a sonar ParkSense audible system and the ParkView rearview camera.” This latter uses the audio system’s LCD screen in the center stack to display a view of what’s behind you, and it is not bundled with the optional navigation system, so it remains more affordable. The 2008 Chrysler Town & Country also offers a seating option that includes integrated child booster seats.

TheCarConnection.com’s team looked carefully at the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country, and could identify only one factor that kept this minivan from ranking a solid 10/10: the availability of all-wheel drive. We, however, recognize that for most buyers, AWD offers no benefit, and there is a large development cost behind offering what would turn out to be a low-volume option. Thus, we think Chrysler made the right choice (and spent its money wisely).

Conclusion

The 2008 Chrysler Town & Country is fully equipped to be a safe family hauler.

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.
