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

"No other model has had a run of success like the Town & Country," said Brad

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," 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."
