First minivan - love it

Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Town and Country LXi 4dr Ext Minivan AWD

We just purchased our first minivan with 84K miles. It is absolutely perfect, single owner with low miles. Kids love it and we can't wait to take our first road trip (the dog get to go too!)

Had to memorialize the old family fan; it was taken away for recycling today after 14 years of faithful service. It probably would have lasted longer except it was driven exclusively by my kids for the last five years and was abused terribly. Near the end it was using a quart of oil a week. Never the less it was a great kid hauler.




180,000 mile review

Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Town and Country LXi 4dr Ext Minivan

Bought this highest rated van in 1998. Wonderful comfort, able performer on the highway and in city. Wind noise a distraction at highway speeds. The removable 3rd row seat, although heavy to handle, along with removable 2nd row captains chairs makes the roomy rear better than a pickup. We've handled many large loads, plywood, sheetrock, easily and out of the weather. What sinks Chrysler is its miserable reliability. Replaced a broken transmission 3,000 miles after the warranty expired, our experience with dealership support after the sale was poor. Too many expensive repair issues.




Best van around

Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Town and Country LXi 4dr Ext Minivan

I inherited this van from my father. I have driven several other models and makes of minivans -- this is the best driving, most comfortable of all. It is a solid vehicle, feels safe and yet is powerful. Fuel mileage is only problem, about 20mpg. The back seats are removable, but are very heavy -- still, I can remove them in order to fit large items. The front seats are extremely comfortable and adjustable, only wish we had heated seats!




Expensive vehicle horrible reliability

Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Town and Country LX 4dr Ext Minivan

This was a great vehicle till we got over 70,000 miles on. Since have had it in the shop @ least 8 times for electrical/ not starting issues. The shop could never resolve the problem. All the gauges stop working while driving, still drives, but it is scary. They ask a lot for these new and I would never in my life buy another Chrysler product, not to mention some of the deaths related to these vans and Chrysler did not help the deceased family in the least. Steer clear of these. Sounds like a death trap to me. I'll probably have to give mine away because, so far I have NOT found a single dealer or person that will even look at it.




The perfect vehicle

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Town and Country LX 4dr Ext Minivan AWD

This van has been the perfect vehicle for us. I have hauled 4x8 sheets of sheetrock and paneling with all the seats in and out. 12 ft. long 2x12's also fit with the rear door closed. All the seats are comfortable, rear heat/air c. works great, and the compass/mileage calculator/miles till empty feature is near priceless. AWD has been a great feature on our snow & ice covered streets/highways in Minnesota. After 10 yrs.& 118000 miles, we have replaced the battery and tires twice, front brakes once, at 100K. That is it for repairs. Mileage is 23 hwy & 16 city. Quite acceptable for me. We love this van.
