#375 of 407 So many sold and a dead board, why?
Dec 30, 2012 (9:44 pm)
I'm in the market for a Odyssey, Sienna or Town & Country/GrCaravan. The Sienna/Odyssey boards are quite active. This one is very quiet. If I got a T&C/GrCaravan I'm mostly interested in the Touring or SXT. Any recent deals?

I'm 4 month into my T&C Touring L lease and of all the vehicles I've ever owned it is my favorite. I shopped all the vans. Not sure about deals right now and I will say the T&C does not have the super refined engine of the Honda or Toyota but it more than makes up for it with everything else, it has so many amenities (keyless, dvd, heated seats and steering wheel, automatic wipers/lights, sensors all around the vehicle, goes on and on), and is the most comfortable vehicle I've ever been in. I have bad arthritis so comfort was key for me when shopping. My two girls love the space and all it has to offer, you just can't get all the extras with Honda and Toyota for a reasonable price. The other thing that sold us was the look of the interior it is so beautiful in comparison to the other two. We have the black interior. So we purchased based on comfort, amenities, and look and are very happy. Love the heated steering wheel! Good luck with your shopping. As far as deals go I almost purchased with one dealer and then had a bit of a falling out with them, took the final deal to another dealer and just said this is what I want, yes or no and they said ok.

I totally agree. I am now on my fourth T&C. Have a 2011 with all the amenities. I love the "stow and go" , which Toyota and Honda do not have.
I love the handling and all the features. I have the package with lane warning , automatic headlight dimmer, They work very well. I have had mine now about 14 months and no problems. Also have the black exterior with black interior. I also agree it is difficult to get a good deal with Honda and Toyota. Also love the comfort of the driving position. My U connect works better than my wife's Lexus. It even reads my text messages to me. The information display is the best I have ever had. Very readable and gives so much information. I also use the digital speedometer some.
#378 of 407 FYI - Current Lease Quote
Jan 18, 2013 (2:45 pm)
For anyone interested, with the supplier discount, the lease price on a Town and Country base with NAV was $310 a month (includes taxes). I have to pay $500 up front for the first payment, doc fees, plate transfer, etc. 12,000 Miles Per Year, 3 year lease. I'm in the Detroit area.
Considering I was quoted $445 for a Nissan Quest with Leather & DVD and $504 a month for a Honda Odyssey with Leather and RES this month as well, Chrysler is really smoking the competition with respect to lease pricing.
#379 of 407 Great Deal

That is a great quote for a Town and Country with nav. I would jump on this. All the Town and Country vans now have leather as standard equipment. I have the T&C 2011 and love it. This is my fourth and the best one yet. I love the stow and go. None of the others have it. I could never deal with Honda or Toyota. The $500 up front is not bad since it includes the first months payment. My wife just leased a car with the first months payment free, but paid $250 in doc fees, plate, transfer etc. That is about normal.
#380 of 407 April Lease Terms
Apr 16, 2013 (9:22 am)
Do you have the current lease terms for a 2013 T&C Touring L package for both USB and Ally? I'm looking for 36 months at 12K per year.
Thanks in advance.

Hi krikiter. I have seen the lease program for this van through Ally and the new Chrysler Capital. I haven't seen the numbers from US Bank. Next month I think that all special leases for Chrysler will go through Chrysler Capital.
Chrysler Capital's April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Town & Country Touring L with 12,000 miles per year are .00069 and 57%.
The Ally numbers for this model are 1.65% and 55% (lease rate instead of a money factor).
There is a $1,500 cash incentive on leases of this van in most areas, it's slightly higher than that in a few.

Is the lease program info the same in May as April? Trying to calc my lease payment based on my purchase price and don't want to be too far off.
