Chrysler owner once- not again
By Dawn M on
2001 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Comfort for driver, automatic sliding doors
Quality car building just not there- not sure if Chrysler can pull this off but lost my trust in their ability to build a good quality van for families - safety also a great concern as with all the breakdowns - happening with children in car and invariably while on long distance trip.
