Used Car: 2013 Chrysler Town & Country Review
Test drivers liked the 2013 Town & Country’s long list of standard features, including its convenient Stow ‘n Go folding seats.
Reviewers said the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country’s V6 engine is powerful, but some wrote that it can be loud during hard acceleration. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, and some test drivers reported that it has fluid shifts, while others said that gear changes can be abrupt. According to the EPA, the 2013 Town & Country gets 17/25 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low for the class. Most reviewers wrote that the 2013 Town & Country’s ride is comfortable. Some also said it has poised handling, well-controlled body roll and accurate steering. However, others reported that body roll is obvious, and that hard stops cause a lot of nose dive. Additionally, some noted that the Town & Country has a wider turning radius than rivals like the Honda Odyssey.
Most automotive journalists felt that the interior of the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country is luxurious and features plush materials. Many reviewers also wrote that all three rows of seats in the Town & Country are spacious and comfortable, though some noted that the second-row seats are mounted low and the third-row seats offer limited headroom for taller passengers. The 2013 Town & Country comes standard with Stow ‘n Go second- and third-row seats that fold flat into the floor, and critics agreed that they make it easy to expand the minivan’s cargo area. The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country has a maximum of 143.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which is normal for the class. Reviewers appreciated the 2013 Town & Country’s long list of standard features, which include a rear-seat DVD system, a power liftgate, leather upholstery and Chrysler’s Uconnect touch-screen infotainment system. Optional features when it was new include navigation, a dual-screen Blu-Ray system and blind spot monitoring.
Other Minivans to Consider
The 2013 Toyota Sienna impressed reviewers with its smooth-revving engine and strong acceleration. The Sienna has one of the largest cargo areas in the class, and unlike most minivans, it is available with all-wheel drive.
The 2013 Honda Odyssey gets better fuel economy than the Town & Country, and test drivers reported that it is agile for a minivan. Reviewers agreed that the Odyssey has an attractive, upscale interior and spacious seating in all three rows.
