Safety matters in the minivan segment and the best-selling minivan in the United States, the Chrysler Town & Country earned a Top Safety Pick award, Autoblog said. The Dodge Grand Caravan and several other minivan models were also honored. "Safety-conscious parents shopping for a family hauler should be pleased with today's minivan choices," says David Zuby, safety researcher for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Los Angeles Times reported. "At the same time, the ratings show that major differences remain in this segment when it comes to protection in a rollover crash."
The 2012 Models of Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country received strength-to-weight ration ratings of 4.51, among the highest of the minivans tested for roof strength, and above the IIHS requirement of 4.0, Chrysler Group said.
Engineering chief Scott Kunselman said in a statement that Chrysler Group's 11 Top Safety Picks, a number unsurpassed in the industry, underscore the company's commitment to safety and security across all vehicle segments.

Chrysler Group Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne, the Automotive News' Industry Leader of the Year and North American CEO All-Star, is a combination big-picture visionary and tireless mocromanager, Automotive News said. In a word, Marchionne, just months shy of 60, is relentless, the magazine said. the Company has racked up 19 straight months of year-over-year sales increases, and Chrysler vehicles jumped considerably in Consumer Report's annual reliability survey, the article said. Chrysler is on target to post its first net profit since 2005, the article said.

Fortune Magazine detailed how Chrysler Group "keeps killing it" with a variety of strategies to stimulate sales and "put the automaker back into contention." Chrysler Group has quietly rehabilitated itself producing "spectacular results" and now stands as the year's "most accomplished full-line manufacturer," the Fortune story said.
Similarly, an Automotive News editorial declares 'what a great difference two years make' from the time Chrysler Group CEO Sergio Marchionne laid out an ambitious and creative plan to fix the company's problems. "Marchionne has hit all of his marks and is ahead of schedule in what is shaping up as a remarkable turnaround," Automotive News said. "The product is selling well, led in October by Jeep. And Jeep vaulted to the top spot for a domestic brand in Consumer Reports magazine's 2011 auto reliability survey."
Detroit News auto critic Scott Burgess wrote, "Chrysler Group LLC continues to be on a tear, Two Novembers ago, when Fiat SpA took over, it said it had a radical plan to revamp nearly every vehicle in Chrysler's lineup. Now, consumers have noticed and are starting to reconsider the brand."

1) Motor oil: oil degrades over time and becomes contaminated. Recommended oil change intervales vary my manufacturuer, but the simple truth is that all vehicles require an oil change. 2)Air Filter: The air filter screens harmful dust and debris, keeping it from gettingi nside the engine and potentially causing life-shortening damage. It eventually becomes clogged with dust and dirt and needs to be replaced so your engine can breath freely and generate the power it was designed to put out. 3)Coolant: The ability to protect your car's engine from the extreme summer heat and bone-chilling winter cold will become depleted. Even though many modern vehicles don't require a coolant change for the first five years, the truth is that at some point almost every vehicle will requir multiple coolant changes during its lifetime. 4)Tires: Tires need maintenance as well. A tire rotation every once in a while is very beneficial; doing so can extend the tread life, keeping you from having to buy new tires quite as soon. 5)Transmission fluid: it doesn't matter whether your car is automatic, manual, or has the CVT transmission, most automakers recommend replacing the fluid that protects the transmission at some point during the vehicle's life. 6)Gearbox fluid: Chances are your car has at least one gearbox (also known as a differential). If you drive an all-or four-wheel drive vehicle, you even have several. Technicians generally inspect fluid at every oil change, and many automakers recommend changing gearbox fluid at least once during the vehicle's lifetime. 7)Brakes: Eventually all brakes erode and you will have metal on metal rubbing. This will require both the brake pads/shoes and the rotors/drums will need to be replaced. It can be pricey, but you can't put a price-tag on the ability to stop when you need to. 8)Spark plugs: Time was when automakers recommended new spark plugs aabout every 30,000 miles These days, you might only have to replace the spark plugs in your car once during its lifetime, but its a service that most automakers still recommend at certain intervals. 9)Air conditioning refrigerant: While automotive A/C systems are designed to be leak-proff, stuff happens, and if your car's A/C system has low or contaminated refrigerant, it will struggle to blow cold air.. 10)Wiper blades: They're stuck on your windshield day after day, in the hot sun or freezing snow. Eventually, the rubber blades of your windshield wipers will begin to degrade. When that happens, its time for new ones. 11)Fuel injection system: Although this isn't generally a factory recommended service, the simple fact is that the ultra-fine injectors used to spray fuel into your car's engine are susceptible to even the tiniest bits of debris. An interruption in the perfectly designed spray pattern of your injectors can cost you at the pump, which is why to ensure you're getting the best mileage possible, many experts recommend a fuel injection cleaning service at periodic intervals. 12)Light bulbs: Your car has dozens of light bulbs, from headlights to tail lights to side-market lights to license plate lights. At some point, most of us will have to deal with a burned-out light bulb on your vehicle, which is why more and more auto service factilities like your dealership are including a comprehensive check of your lights in their inspection process. 13)Cabin air filter: Even the inside of your car has an item that needs maintenance. Most modern vehicles are equipped with a special filter that screens the air coming into the passenger compartment. These filters can keep out mold, dust, pollen and other allergens, and some specially made filters can even screen out odors. But just like your engine air filter, these filters will need to be periodically replaced, generally on an annual basis. (these suggestions are taken from "Go.Drive' magazine fall 2011 issue).
