As it is the newest minivan on the market, most Miami Valley residents aren’t quite sure what to expect from the Chrysler Pacifica. Just like with any other Chrysler model, you can expect innovative features designed with your family in mind. Some are familiar, like the Stow ‘n Go seats you will remember from the Town & Country. Others, like the hybrid option, haven’t been seen before. Here are just some of the coolest features on the all-new Pacifica that make it the top minivan on the market.
Fuel Economy and Hybrid Option
In the past, if you wanted a hybrid minivan, you were out of luck. The new Chrysler Pacifica changes that with the available hybrid configuration. Even if you choose to go with the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 gas engine, you get 28 mpg on the highway, numbers the competitors can’t come close to. Going with the Pacifica Hybrid will give you up to [...]

Comments Off on Chrysler Town & Country: How to Replace a Spark Plug
Generally, most spark plugs we made to last 60,000-100,000 miles. The spark plugs in the Chrysler Town & Country should be inspected and cleaned every 30,000 miles, according to Chrysler. By replacing the spark plugs as suggested, gas mileage can be improved as well as strain on the engine. Follow these easy steps to replace the spark plugs in a Chrysler Town & Country:
First, you should disconnect the negative battery cable.
Let the battery cool. Do not try to replace the spark plug in a hot engine, as it can damage the cylinder head.
Find the spark plug wires. They will be located across the front and back of the engine.
Release the lock on the spark plug by first grabbing the spark plug wire by its boot. Turn it one-half turn clockwise, and then one-half turn counterclockwise. Pull the wire off the spark plug. Lay the wire aside.
Comments Off on Chrysler Town & Country vs. Toyota Sienna LE V6
In 2011, Chrysler published a video of the results of comparison tests that they performed with the Chrysler Town & Country against the Toyota Sienna LE V6. While both would commonly be considered to be comparable minivans, the outcomes proved to distinguish them as very different. Take a look:
This was one of the most obvious differences as the handling of the Sienna was not as adequate as the Town & Country. The suspension in the Sienna is soft which makes the van feel uncomfortable in any handling situations.
The Town & Country had superior handling qualities, especially in situations like emergency handling.
The Town & Country ABS worked well with adequate pedal feedback and feel while having short stopping distances with minimal brake time.
Having a mini-van or a large car to accommodate your kids, friends of your kids, as well as all of their soccer gear, basketball equipment and school bags is can be essential for some families. But what good does a vehicle do that doesn’t have space for all of your storage? The Chrysler Town & Country provides the first-class storage options and flexibility that many families want and need.
The Chrysler Town & Country has the Stow N’ Go seats which allow for convenient and power folding and unfolding positions for the second and third row seats:
One-touch fold and tumble for third-row seats
Seats fold into floor bins individually
2-7 seats, or any combination in between
When in the standard upright position, there are in-floor bins which [...
Comments Off on 2012 Chrysler Town & Country: 42 Advanced Safety and Technology Features
What was the most surprising about the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country was not the storage space or the entertainment system, but the 42 safety and technology features that come standard. Of course, there is comfort in knowing the Town & Country is equipped with supplemental side-curtain, advanced multistage front, and front seat-mounted side airbags, but the innovative technological safety features are even more impressive.

Furthermore, the Rear Cross Path Detection will alert you of approaching low-speed vehicles when backing out of a parking spot. This is perfect for places like the grocery store parking lot on a busy [...]
