Nice to own except for reliability

2000 Chrysler Town and Country Limited 4dr Minivan
We love this van. It has taken us from Denver to Las Vegas, Detroit (twice) and many trips to the mountains. It is our 2nd T&C and alas, will be our last. I have had it with the reliability of these vans. They are great to look at and drive, but I cannot take playing mechanical roulette with the transmission. The brakes are horrible and there always seems to be something wrong with the electrical system. At 50k, we had to replace the belt tensioner, idler pulley and crank pulley. It sounded like a flock of birds under the hood. Everyone beware, best to have a full, $0 deductible extended warranty. You will need it.
Great looks, lots of creature comforts. Great on long trips
Chrysler, please, please do some R&D on your transmissions and FIX them. They are smooth shifting, but absolutely terrible mechanical devices. With some decent reliability, these would be the best vans out there.
