We just bought a 2016 Town and Country minivan with 7800 miles.
Just returned by Hertz on the Guaranteed Depreciation Plan where the rental agancy has a guaranteed cost to boost available cars in resort areas in season.
This van was in Orlando during the last winter and was sold
back to Chrysler to be auctioned to their dealers for low mileage used cars.
The one we have has the Nav and all of the towing package (heavy duty radiator, transmission cooler , alternator, and self leveling shocks.)
I will have to add the hitch and trailer wiring kit.
I found a hits new old stock for $125 and the wiring kit for $97.
Total (from Amazon $225.
The Town and Country is rated for towing a maximum of 3500 lbs with WDH and 1800 without.
I will add the Teknosha P3 brake controller with the 7 pin trailer wiring setup.
The worry is the 6 speed transmission and we are saving for later maintenance costs.
The rest of this van is pretty well porven and is recognized as not being as sophisticated as the Sienna and Odyssey, but close. The one thing it does have going for it are the Stow n' Go seating that leaves a flat floor that will take the proverbial 4 X 8 sheet of plywood!
We drove it over the weekend and averages 28 miles per gallon on the road with a little city thrown in.
We were looking for a replacement for the VW TDIs that are being recalled and bought back with penalty of from $5100 t0 $10,000.
We were looking for a replacement that would not generate a car payment with a newer car and lower mileage than the VW it replaced.
We can make no recommendation as to how well the T&C will work out, but we will find out soon.
