My 2006 Town and Country is just out of warranty,and since I purchased it 2nd hand it does not have any power train warranty coverage. While under warranty, it had it's front axle replaced. Now I find that it needs 3 gaskets/valves replaced to correct the serious oil leak. The dealer quoted this repair at about $1600. Since it also needs new tires, I am considering trading in and getting a more reliable sedan. What do you think?
You need to weigh out your options. You will need to see what the cost is to purchase a new vehicle as opposed to fixing what you have. If the Town and Country is a good vehicle and you think you will have no more immediate problems, then it may be cheaper to fix it and keep it instead of buying something else.
However, you should also keep in mind that if you buy something newer, you may have fewer repair costs. Good luck.
