2001 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
Owned this van for almost 2.5 years.
Brake rotors warped at 11K, dealership
turned & replaced pads. Warped again
at 26K, dealer says normal, not covered
under warranty. Same time, experienced
rough shifts into second. Dealership
determined a seal was leaking and
rebuilt the transmission. Tranny still
is not working correctly, dealer says
no problem. They broke the dash lights
when fixing the tranny and now have on
order an instrument cluster to fix this
problem. Shop at this dealer
is poorly run, can't list problems with
thier service staff. Wonder if that
might be most of the problem? Will be
trying another shop in the next 2 weeks
This is one nice ride to travel cross
country. But, in the back of our mind
we are worried it will leave us
stranded somehwere with the only option
to shell out $3K+ for tranny rebuild.
Warranty expires in 5K miles.
Otherwise, we really like it.
Chrysler needs to get thier quality
consistent and improve dealer service.
The owner shouldn't be stuck with the
burden of trying to find a competant
