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

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!




Fancy family ride

Bought the Chrysler T&C minivan when it was 4yrs old. It had been a soccer mom's van and was still in great condition in/out. We love the roomy enterior, and especially the extraspace in the hatch/rear area. Our other minivan (in fact most we've ever been in) is way smaller. When comparing the T&C to our basic Dodge mini, the Chrysler is much more of a luxurious feel,and quiet. Smooth ride,plenty of room for everyone'sluggage on longtrips. Nice stereo,cupholder,and AC that has great rearvents,cold I loved it especially with infants. It made nursing them easy while sitting in one of the separate seats in the back (great armroom.) Way better than wrangling infant/toddlers in sedan

We have now put 127,000 miles on it and it has been the most reliable vehicle we've ever owned.




Disappointed

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

this van is all looks and luxury with no durability. i started noticing electrical problems, little lights on the radio going out. no problem at first. then automatic doorlocks went out. brake-light came on when i turned. open door alarm came on during driving even though all doors were closed. the week before i traded it off, it became obvious that this van was heading for a major breakdown. the battery went completely dead and after i replaced it the airconditioner and rear-window heater didn't work anymore. i had it at chrysler repair-shops at different times and they couldn't find any problems. this van had 130,000 miles on it when i traded it in, but i expected more of that car.

This is an excellent van to drive - quiet, roomy, powerful, and comfortable. We bought this to replaced an Audi sedan, and our young kids loved the extra space from day one. The Town & Country is a distinct step up from the Grand Caravan/Voyager; it's option- laden with no compromises. It feels very solid and well-made, and equally at home on the highway or in the city. Mileage is only so-so, but that pretty much comes with the territory with such a large and roomy vehicle. If earlier years had any quirks or problems, they seem to be gone by the 1998 model. We've put in routine maintenance only, it's been trouble free.
