From the Passenger's Seat

The Town & Country's cabin has decent materials for the most part, though one editor didn't like the silver-colored trim on the dash. The design of the dash itself is rather angular. The van's white-faced gauges have thin-script numerals that aren't easy to read and are much less legible than the Odyssey's massive backlit speedometer.

The center control panel is well-organized. My test van was equipped with the optional UConnect Tunes audio system that features a 30GB hard drive and a touch-screen. It's fairly intuitive, though my wife thought the touch-screen presets would be a distraction over the long term, as you'd always have to look for the onscreen button as opposed to choosing a hard key by feel. Like the van's suspension, the front bucket seats are on the soft side.
