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.
i like the interior looks and comfort. also exterior is very handsome.
deffinitely the durability is lacking. after talking to different other owners the electrical problems seem to be very common.
