Unlike any of its direct competitors, the Chrysler Town & Country has a 3rd row LCD screen,

6) While the 2014 Nissan Quest and 2014 Honda Odyssey both offer 8-way power controls on the driver’s seat direction controls, only the Chrysler Town & Country offers the same comfort on the passenger side.
7) The leather and simulated wood steering wheel of the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country will outlast the urethane steering wheel of the 2014 Toyota Sienna. Urethane deteriorates from sun exposure over time.

The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is known for giving drivers and passengers an overall comfortable ride. However, the car does have its disadvantages.
1) Price is the main factor where Chrysler falls behind the competition. The base MSRP of the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is $41,995. This is almost twice the $26,920 going rate of the 2014 Toyota Sienna. The Town & Country comes with more features and perks, but are they really worth that much more? Even the 2014 Honda Odyssey costs less than the 2014 Town & Country.
2) The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country does not have a fuel door release. The 2014 Honda Odyssey, the 2014 Nissan Quest, and the 2014 Toyota Sienna all come with a mechanical fuel door release.
3) Unlike the 2014 Honda Odyssey, which has seating for 8 people, the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country only seats 7 people.
4) Although the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country has an impressive entertainment system, it does not come with a theft deterrent radio like the 2014 Honda Odyssey.
5) Since safety is a primary issue while driving, consider purchasing the Honda Odyssey. Unlike the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country, the 2014 Odyssey offers a lane departure warning to help you stay in your lane and be safer on the road.
6) Though its engine may be bigger, the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country only comes with 17-inch wheels. Bigger wheels may help the car have better balance while driving. Consider buying the 2014 Honda Odyssey or the 2014 Nissan Quest, which both come with 18-inch silver aluminum wheels.
7) Though it has plenty of storage space inside, the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country does not have roof rails. If you go on long car rides or family trips, you may need the external storage that roof rails have to offer. This feature comes standard on the 2014 Nissan Quest.
8) The fuel efficiency of the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is another downfall. Gas is something that you will spend money on for the live of the vehicle. The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is a gas-guzzler when compared to its competitors. It only offers 17 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
9) With a turning radius of 19.6 inches, the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is not the easiest to maneuver. Both the 2014 Honda Odyssey and the 2014 Nissan Quest have a turning radius of 18.3 inches.
10) Lastly, the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is front wheel drive. If you live in a climate with snow or sleet, consider getting an all wheel drive vehicle instead.
Chrysler has really tried to step up to the plate in the past several years with its Town & Country line up. While the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country does have a lot to offer, most of it competitors give it a run for its money. Consider the affordability of the Toyota Sienna or the reliability of a Honda instead.
