  • Real Town & Country owners share their experiences of owning a Town & Country on testofownership.com

Chrysler Brand announced today that the Chrysler Town & Country won the Polk Automotive Loyalty Award in the "Minivan" category for a record twelfth consecutive time. The creators of the minivan, Chrysler has been receiving this award since 2002. For 2012, 31.2 percent of all returning Town & Country minivan owners bought another Town & Country, according to Polk analysis.

"No other model has had a run of success like the Town & Country," said Brad Smith, Director of Polk's Loyalty Management Practice. "With twelve consecutive years of best in class owner loyalty, Chrysler has had to adapt to evolving customer expectations and increased competition, yet through it all has continually developed a Town & Country that delights customers and drives high rates of repurchase loyalty."

The award recognizes manufacturers for superior owner loyalty performance, which is determined when a household that owns a new vehicle returns to market and purchases or leases another new vehicle of the same model or make. The 2012 awards are based on an analysis of more than 5.9 million new vehicle owners who bought new vehicles again during the 2012 model year.

"This award mirrors the true Town & Country owner experiences told by the owners themselves on testofownership.com," said Saad Chehab, President and CEO – Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "The customers voted, and this Polk Loyalty Award fuels us at the Chrysler Brand to keep the pace and hold this badge of honor with great care and responsibility. It's a record milestone in Loyalty proving the great value Town & Country continues to deliver.

"The unmatched customer care of five-year Road Assistance, the exclusive versatility of its fold-flat Super Stow 'n Go rear seats, the added peace of mind safety systems such as blind spot monitoring, backup camera and Park Assist, plus the segment's only Blu-ray rear seat entertainment system, are just a few parts of what makes the new Town & Country the leader of the minivan pack for a record twelve years in a row."
