A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country

chrysler town and country 2012

While the Chrysler Town & Country has been in production for over half a century, the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country is anything but old-fashioned. The model got a huge overhaul in 2011 and saw a few new upgrades in 2012, as well. Today, the Town & Country is Chrysler’s premier luxury minivan, and it’s sure to impress the whole family.

Key Features

The eight-way adjustable power front seats and heated steering wheel make it a joy to drive a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country, even when the weather outside is frightful. The standard CD/DVD/MP3/Sirius XM audio system, touch screen display, and steering wheel controls make the infotainment system easy to use and highly enjoyable. Plus, there are two independent video screens in the back so your second- and third-row passengers don’t have to bicker over what to watch or play.

Changes for 2012

After adding the Pentastar V6 engine in 2011, Chrysler continued the trend toward more luxury with leather seats and backseat DVD entertainment as standard features on all trim levels.

What We Like

If you want to travel in comfort and luxury with the whole family and all of their cargo, then the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country is a great option for you. Chrysler has spared no expense on all the features you want in a luxury minivan.

What Concerns Us

Unfortunately, with all of their recent ups and downs, Chrysler’s reputation has taken a pretty big hit, and with it so have the Town & Country’s resale values. Other manufacturers’ models hold their value at a much better rate than Chrysler, even if the Town & Country is a superior model.

Available Models

All trim levels of the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country have the same powerful 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with 283 horsepower at 6400 RPM and 260 lb-ft of torque at 4400 RPM. As far as fuel efficiency goes, it’s rated at 17/25 MPG (city/highway) with regular fuel and 12/18 with E85.

Major Recalls

The 2012 Chrysler Town & Country has had a few recalls to resolve issues with:

  • Rod bearing failure
  • Rear hub and bearing assembly
  • Right-side lift gate pinch sensors
  • Overheating vent window switches

These can all be resolved by taking your vehicle to a certified Chrysler dealer.

Common Issues

The most commonly reported issues with the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country are issues with the blind spot detection system, an inaccurate fuel gauge, or automatic door sensors malfunctioning.
