Review of the 2002 Chrysler Town and Country

  • Pleasant to drive and ride in, but lacking a few key features and the rock-solid reliability of certain rivals.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Limousine-like comfort (in Limited models), DVD-video option, refined drivetrain, impressive handling performance.

  • Cons

    No fold-flat third-row seat, unimpressive reliability history, potentially pricey.

  • What's New for 2002

    Chrysler makes this already opulent minivan more luxurious with the availability of power-adjustable pedals, rear-seat audio with wireless headsets and a DVD video system for the rear seat that also includes wireless headsets. A value-leader eL model is introduced that lists for around $24,000.

Poor mpg

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Very comfortable with everything needed at your fingertips. However, unless you have money to waste, don't purchase. The MPG is horrendous! I have had this van for a little over a month and I'm already looking to trade it in! I cringe every time I have to drive it. At one point in time I was receiving 6 MPG and this was with a tune up.

Wife loves it, mechanicals are

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Town and Country Limited AWD 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Bought at 150K mi, currently 195K. Top of line w/ features I would never pay for new. Engine is dependable pushrod type and still like new. Only major problem was a cracked flex-plate, requiring transmission removal, so I rebuilt the tranny. It was perfect inside w/ <2 mil wear on all clutch plates. Maybe rebuilt before, though no sticker. Engine wiring was degraded near exhaust. Common high-end problems - erratic electric doors, auto-temp blower "resistor" failed, CD changer flashes, trans cooler hoses leaked (dealer-installed tow package), heated seats stopped, TPMS dings bother messages and not paying $50/wheel to change batteries every 5 years.

You would think if you serviced you vehicle on time every time it would last..not so with this van. Sliding doors broke,arm rests fell off,power steering hose kept breaking almost wrecked on interstate,heated seats stop working,ate through brakes and rotors,tires costantly,shocks went bad,poor gas mileage,I kept taking it back to the dealer they would reset this reset that. transmission needed replaced at 109,000.

A well enginnered car

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Town and Country EX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have had this van for 8 years. Everything is still original, less tires, water pump, and tune-ups. It has 230,000 miles on it. Does NOT use oil, and still runs perfectly. I am purchasing another Chrysler van next year if I can allow myself to sell this one. I read the reviews above and concluded the vans were abused and not taken care of. I know of two other people who also have this van, and they LOVE them. These vans are used by N.Y.C. Taxis, and other companies as fleet vehicles because they are so dependable. Med Van, has 300 of them and use them as transport vehicles for patients. thus, very dependable.

Great van

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

We bought the van as an extra family spare. It is fun to drive and spacious enough to accommodate 6 adults on a 3 hour trip without any complaints. The van is usually driven around town to run errands and I enjoy driving it to work as much as my SUV. The van has 120,000 miles and you can't hear the engine run and it is quiet on the road. The left side automatic door doesn't operate but besides that we haven't had any problems. One of the best car purchases I've ever made.

Took the van to the dealer for a check engine light and was told that I have a cracked evap canister. When I looked for the cansiter I found what looks to be two canisters. Do these vans have two can?...
