Truck Trend editor Mark Williams, who spent a week with the T&C, notes, "It has none of the booming echoes that big, hollow caverns typically do, but there are some problems. The high-pitched whistle emanating from the driver-side A-pillar at higher speeds (75 mph or so) is just about intolerable. Also, the power pushbutton setup for the third-row seat had an episode in which a piece of luggage accidently hit the 'close' button on the side pillar and almost crushed the passenger belted into the seat. It doesn't seem equipped with any pressure-sensitive retract feature." The bright side? "Fuel economy on highway cruising seems almost unnaturally good-got 25.6 mpg over the 1500 miles I drove, and even got 540 miles between fill-ups. Love the 22-gallon tank."
