Anne:  As mentioned, this minivan comes with two rear DVD displays, a media Center with CD MP-3 and an iPod Interface.I loved the remote engine starter which is a perfect feature to have on the most chilly or warmer days. Remote keyless entry and security alarm are great to have. Rain sensing wipers amaze me -- how does it know those few drops of rain hit the windshield? And, the U Connect phone with voice command is a plus feature.Chuck:

AESTHETICS & STYLINGAnne: With the growth of the SUV/Crossover market and the dramatic decline of sales in the minivan category, having a state of the art minivan with great design language and appeal is most challenging. How do you make a minivan not look like a minivan-pretty difficult to achieve. Nonetheless, the car is not unattractive and does what is indented to do. Safely and functionally transport numerous people.The interior is spacious, clean and functional with a neutral soft slate and charcoal palate. Buttons and dials are easy to see and reach for. Lots and lots of compartments.

Chuck: The design of the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country is average. I don't think that the design engineers were striving for anything extreme or modern here; they may have been more concerned with "design functionality." The exterior of the car looks clean, with defined edges and corners. The chrome exterior mirrors and signal indicators add a nice touch of elegance to the Town & Country.The interior of the vehicle can best be described as clean. The lines are rigid, with meaning and purpose. For example, the center console is rectangular in design so that it can be easily located, and opened. The controls on the console aren't spread about- they're laid out in a very specific pattern so that the driver and passenger can reach, and use them with ease.

Anne:  Vehicle is assembled in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Fuel economy can be improved upon
This was an enjoyable car to drive. I had a few jobs to complete where I had to drop of loads of food, and the Chrysler Town & Country made it very easy with its two power sliding side doors, and the power rear hatch. I really enjoyed being able to start the car remotely on cold mornings! If you find yourself in the market for a family styled car, you'll be impressed with the roominess and extended list of options on this particular model.
