The perfect vehicle
By Sheldon Elseth on
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.
The compass/mileage calculator/miles till empty/outside temp. feature is near priceless. The AWD option.
The new stowaway rear seat is the only improvement needed.
