2001 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
These are the best riding vans on the road. Yes, there are issues with parts such as a/c, sway bar bushings transmissions. However, we have owned these since 1987 & we have never had to replace a timing belt (They have chains), never any exhaust work, never any CV boots. Most parts are pretty reasonable too. Brakes jobs run about $200 per axle, whereas they cost about $700 on our Previa! It is critical to do preventive maintenance on these. Use snthetic transmission fluid & change it every 50K. Change your fuel filter too. Plugs, antifreeze & water pump should be done at 80K. We did our first brakes job at 78K & we sold it with 157K & the brakes were still good. Overall, a great value!
Roominess, performance & availabilty. Nice seats, good climate control. Leather seats have 157K & still look new!
Quality control must improve. Huge variance in the reliabilty of these vans.
