We certainly remember VW's original Bus, but you have to give Chrysler credit for launching the modern minivan. What was once the domain of those just slightly left of center has gone mainstream--kinda.

The minivan still suffers some social stigma. A few one-time players have left the scene, as the more macho SUV seems to have won that round. Chrysler is still knee-deep in the minivan game, however, and they released their fifth generation in 2008.

Our test car--um, van--is the Town & Country Limited, which received some updates for 2011, including a retuned suspension and new 3.6-liter Pentastar engine backed by a six-speed automatic transmission.

Our test van didn't have a ton off add-ons: $320 for the Second-Row Luxury Buckets with Rear Stow 'n Go and another $595 for the power folding third-row seat.
