"Used the T&C to bring donations to the Salvation Army," says associate editor Allyson Harwood. "I was impressed with the ease with which you can reconfigure the cabin. I needed the full flat cargo space and had the second and third rows down in no time. The van held a lot of gear-it didn't seem like that much when I stowed it all in there, but taking it out required several trips." Harwood also appreciates that the shifter is "easy to reach and out of the way" and that the transmission "responds quickly and shifts smoothly." At 6000 miles, the Town & Country made its initial service stop at Orange County Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge, where it completed a complimentary oil change, inspection, and tire rotation.
