I’ve been testing out the Chrysler Town & Country for several days and I am smitten. Since our mini road trip up to Norwalk, CT on Saturday, we’ve been staying local. The Town & Country fits in so well with everything I need to do, like day camp drop offs and food shopping. (Read more after the jump).
1) Day Camp Drop Off: I take my two older kids to camp every morning and the baby comes along for the ride. We load into the minivan in our apartment’s garage. My oldest child (almost 7) walks to the 3rd row and straps himself in his High back Booster Seat. I put my daughter in her car seat and then put my youngest son in his car seat. Then I close the doors by pushing the buttons on (either inside the door, on the mini remote, or right as I sit in my driver’s seat). Don’t look for a key to open the door, you won’t find one. But the remote has to be somewhat nearby. Push start and put your foot on the brake (at the same time).
Cool Features: It’s a smart vehicle. The main screen can give info such as if the tire pressure is okay, the fuel economy, how many miles you’ve driven on your road trip. It will even tell you when it’s time for an oil change (which is a great feature for a busy people).
The kids are comfortable. I’m comfortable. Whenever I start the car, the air conditioning also starts up immediately.
Cool Feature: You can change radio stations and volume right on your steering wheel.
Why am I excited about Radio Disney and the Town & Country?
2) Food Shopping: It also handled food shopping very well. I clicked the remote before I got to the Town and Country, to open the sliding doors and trunk.
If you need more room, you can activate Stow and Go in the back to put the third row down. You can choose to put one the smaller seat down, the wider seat down or both seats.
I was able to fit a lot of groceries in the well area.

Thank you to Chrysler for providing a Town & Country Touring Minivan to drive for one week for the purpose of this review. This post is part of a Chrysler sponsorship. As always, my opinions are my own.
