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.

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

One of the most pleasant driving vehicles there is on the open road. A nuisance to get around town in for me. My wife has no trouble. Heads had to be milled about 120,000 and rear wheel bearing went at 90,000. Driver's side electric window motor was replaced. Overall,a good vehicle, but would buy the shorter version.

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

88,000 miles evaporator under the dash had to be replaced: $675 92,000 new transmission and axle: $3500 93,000 new computer and other related equipment: $1400 Annually new brakes: $70 Biannually new roters: $100 Until recently this car has been reliable but now it is a drain on my finances. I had a 92 minivan and put in 2 transmissions. I don't think I will buy another chrysler product ever again.




Nice car but loud idle

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

We bought our van used with 76,000 miles. It is a pleasure to drive and we love the comfort inside. We have taken several long trips in it and it performed marvelously. We now have 138,000 miles and are looking at buying another used van.




Compitence in manufacturing

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

I AVERAGE OVER 20 MILES PER GALLON WITH A 3.8 LITER ENGINE. ONLY PROBLEM WAS WITH THE COMPUTER, WHEEL BEARING, AND FAN SWITCH WHICH WAS UNDER WARRANTY. THIS IS THE THIRD ONE OWNED AND THE BEST YET. IT SEEMS TO GET BETTER AS IT GETS OLDER.
