I bought my T&C for $8,000 with 80,000 miles.
It's silver with gray leather in beautiful shape.
I replaced fog lamps, headlights, and windshield to make it look new.
It now has 140,000 miles on it.
Had a $300 repair on transmission, new brakes, battery, tires, and driver's side power window switch.
It's reliable, quiet, and comfortable.
Ice cold three zone a/c works great.
I'm surprised at poor reviews.
Mine still drives like new and looks great inside and out. I guess I got lucky.
I will keep it until it turns to dust.
My neighbors have a 1999 T&C that they beat the stuffings out of daily, and it still runs like a champ with 240,000 miles on it.

Since I have owned this van . Which now has 120.000 miles on it . I have been satisified with performance, however, have been somewhat plagued with problem's . Sliding right power door quit, , had to replace entire mechanism cost 400.00 had to replace air conditioning check valve cost 80.00 water pump, , 150.00, ignition switch 200.00 now fuel injector problem, which will no doubt cost me a fortune to repair , ,heated seat's inoperative, scared to ask how much to fix that problem. I believe most vehicles today are designed to operate for only 100,000 miles before problem's start to mount.

I have over 100,000 miles on my van and I have never had to take it to the shop for more than simple oil changes, new battery, etc- I love Lexi (I named her) and I wouldn't trade her for anything. We travel so much too and have never once had any issues.

2001 van purchase new (vs. slightly used cars from past - Toyota, Nissan, VW all of which were GREAT!). Was very surprised to have first 25 shop visits under 25,000 miles. Chrysler opted to refuse replacement as they were not repeat problems, rather new ones each time. Both front power windows out - more than once, A/C repairs and finally replaced at 35K, both power sliding doors out and motors replace - more than once, balancing bar out, weather stripping came off front windshield, transmission repaired twice (before 60,000 miles... Total 45 times in shop and 73,000 miles to date. Would not recommend. Downtime much too costly and without car each repair.

This Van has a flawed transmission design. It failed me at 95,000 miles. Such poor quality and Chrysler would not help pay. I would never buy Chrysler again. This car is a big mistake. Do not be fooled. Electric doors will go bad for sure. All of mine including the back hatch have failed twice. Buy Honda or Toyota, your money is too precious to waste. Very disappointed. Quality if very poor. AC has went out too. Run.

My first year of ownership the Driver's side window regulator went bad twice and then the passenger side regulator went out. I have had the transmission overhauled, the oil pan gasket has been replaced and my van still leaks oil. The engine was overhauled. The electrical system went out, my speedometer stopped working and all engine lights came on. I had a Caliper replaced and now the electrical system is broken again. I no longer have a warranty on the van, mind you I had and extended warranty. The van only has 87,000 miles on it, mostly highway. Thank God for my daily driver a Toyota Camry. Please never buy this vehicle!
