1997 Chrysler Town and Country LX 4dr Ext Minivan


Review

This is our fifth Chrysler mini van because it is a comfortable ride and large space. Mileage is disappointing and never buy one without power train extended warranty. This is also our tenth transmission (two each).


Favorite Features

Seat adjustments and sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission and rattles.

Review

This vehicle looked very good when it was under warranty, but soon afterwards, multiple problems surfaced. Belts that required hours of labor to replace would break, brake systems requiring $6-700 repairs, air conditioning that never worked properly after about 50K miles. The electrical system was always suspect as well, with warning lights that came on randomly even when there was nothing wrong and windshield wipers that go on by themselves. I would not buy this or any other Chrysler product unless I knew I could get rid of it before the manufacturer's warranty expired.

Review

I can't stand this car. I have put more money into this poor excuse for a car. It has been nothing but trouble. THere is absolutely nothing redeeming about this car.

Review

We owned a Dodge caravan before this T&C. We put 2 transmissions in it in 100,000 miles. We were skeptical about buying another Chrylsler van but we talked to the service manager at the dealership and he assured us that Chrysler had fixed their transmission problems, WRONG, Wrong and WRONG. We put 3 new transmissions in the 67,000 miles that we've had the van.WE bought it used with 53,000 miles so it could have had more go bad. You might think that maybe it is our driving habits but in our 55 yrs of driving experience these 2 Chrylser vans are the only transmissions we have ever had go bad. We are selling this hunk of transmission junk ASAP and will never buy another Chrysler product.


Favorite Features

Comfort, leather seats


Suggested Improvements

Transmissions,Transmissions, Transmissions. The windsheild wipers also come on by themselves. The bushing on the front end wear out and make a popping noise
