I have noticed that when I use my parking brake on my 2011 Town and Country that the pedal will release, yet the brake on the rear driver's side will some times stay partially engaged. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if so could point me towards possible solutions. An additional note: when I do engage the parking brake it doesn't take much, meaning the pedal only goes down about an inch or so. Thank you.

A tight pedal is normal.
The sticking is most likely due to corrosion (which expands) causing the pad ears to no longer slide easily in the bracket. Disassemble, clean, reassemble.

You should get that fixed asap or your brakes will wear way faster then it needs to.
The parking brake pedal on my 2010 goes down more than an inch when I apply it. It goes nearly to the floor board.

Try to clean and lube everything especially the slide pins to make sure everything move freely.
