2000 Chrysler T & C is a great van

2000 Chrysler Town and Country Limited 4dr Minivan
This van is a delight to drive, especially on long trips. Seating is excellent (we have 4 captains chairs + the back bench). Acceleration, and driver visibility are also excellent. Good headroom, too, About the only complaints I have are that the gauges (especially the speedometer) are very hard to read at dawn and dusk. there is also some sort of radio interference from lights at night. Road noise could be lower, but car has nearly 130k miles, so some may be due to the normal aging of car. Earlier models (like our '92 Grand Caravan) had transmission problems, but (knock on wood!) they seem to have been fixed by 2000. Wife has 07 Lexus ES 350, but I like to drive T & C better!
6 way power front seats, reclining captains chairs in second row and comfortable bench in back. Ability for pass to get to back is great for mom with kids. Great premium sound system, front and back air conditioning and controls. Second row pass can read at night w/o bothering driver.
Visibility of speedometer at dawn and dusk. Low ambient lighting does not give enough light to see light colored digits against the backlit (when lights on) dial without really taking your eyes off the road and concentrating on dial.
