Default I am looking into a new minivan. How does the Town & Country comare to the Honda Odyssey?

The Odyssey gets a lot of the top ratings, but the T&C is cheaper - is the Odyssey really that much better?

The Chrysler is a turd. Reliability is so-so at best and horrible at worst.

Buy the Honda, it's that much better. The only thing difference is that after a certain amount Miles on the Chrysler it comes really un reliable. I own a 06 Odyssey with 26,000 with no problems. Buy the Honda its a better buy. With the Chrysler Town & Country you spend all lot of money on it to get it fixed.

I've owned them both (2003 Chrysler and 2005 Honda) and hands down, pick an Odyssey over any Chrysler, Ford or GM product. Go to Car and Driver and check their website. It wasn't voted the best minivan for no reason at all.The only close competition to the Odyssey is the Toyota or the newest Hyundai Entourage. Yeah, don't laugh, Hyundai. The Odyssey rides better, sounds better, gets better mileage, has WAY better reliability and retains its value so much better it isn't funny. I have three young children and a dog and the Honda just accommodates us all better.Best of luck to you in your search!

buy a honda chrysler has horrible reliability and resale value and a odyssey has better gas mileage and a whole lot of features the chrysler doesn't. but if you want a car thats top of both these minivans then try a honda pilot cause its about the same price as a odyssey if you get it fully loaded and it has 4wd.

chrysler minivans are known for bad transmissions. they drop like rocks in value. go to consumers report and see what they have to say. the honda is pretty expensive. believe it or not i think the kia sedona got good marks for a lot less bucks. u cant go wrong with toyota or honda. the nissan has just average reliability. i own one but i bought it used. it too drops like a rock in value. i got mine for 6000 with 76k on it! beats the heck out of 30k for a new one. good luck.

Honda is tons better. Plus it has about a million cool little gadgets that are really fun to play around with.

The odyssey will have a better resale value later down the road so even thou you will pay more in the beginning you will get more out of it in the long run.. Besides little repair and cheap maint. When you are ready to sell it you will be able to get more money out of it. The 1994 odyssey's are still worth 5200. And...As the saying goes you get what you paid for... So you buy something Cheap... that is exactly what your getting something Cheap.
