i've been experiencing issues with my a/c unit however, whether this issue has anything to do with what happened tonight or not, i don't know. i had gone to turn my 2006 chrysler town and country off while it was in park & it just started to roll backwards! i quickly reached for the gear shift to make sure it was in park but it already was! i then went to step on the brake & it still wouldn't stop! i have to believe this was nothing less than a major malfunction of some sort! the only thing that stopped me from rolling backwards was when my van crashed into my father-in-laws truck parked several feet behind me. this incident could have seriously hurt, even killed someone had they been in the way of my van rolling backwards! my 7 month old daughter was in my arms as this occurred. i had simply reached across from the passenger side to shut the engine off when all of this happened. i managed to jump one leg across to the drivers side to put my foot on the brake just to find out it wasn't going to stop the van from rolling backwards anyways! *tr

i have a 2006 chrysler town & country that has a braking system that is too small for the size of the van. i am on my third set of front brakes and my second set of rear brakes. this was all done before 36,000 miles. i spoke with someone who used to be a chrysler service manager and he stated that chrysler installed a braking system that is too small for the van which causes the brakes to wear out faster. i see this as a safety issue and it is becoming quite expensive. have there been any other reports like this? i think chrysler should have to answer why they did this. i also believe the rear captain's seats in the van have too steep of a decline angling towards the point where the back and the bottom of the seat meet to properly install child restraint seats. it is impossible to level out the car seats for my kids. no other van has seats that are similar to this. *tr

Mileage was 17878 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):2A4GP54L46R. Vehicle was not using anit-lock brakes. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
