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


Review

Bought van with 6,000 miles, nearly new. Have gone long-distance cross country with family of 5 w/ lots of luggage with comfort, and MANY miles in town as the family/team taxi. Great visibility. Holds 7 with field hockey gear-even goalie bag!Still gets 23 mpg on hilly highway and 20 mpg in town at 108,000 miles! One sliding door motor replaced under standard warranty, new torque converter at 83,000 miles; otherwise normal wear and tear items only. EASY to drive, and to park considering its length. Previously owned a GMC conversion van and this one is so much easier to drive, much more like a car but hauls sofas and dressers, too! Seats cumbersome to remove/store when hauling space needed.


Favorite Features

Comfort, space, visibility, ease of driving, steering wheel mounted audio controls, remote operated power doors, heated seats.


Suggested Improvements

Stow-away seats (if comfortable).

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


Review

This has been a great van, were going to trade it in on a new van, but have decided to keep this one a while longer. We have maintained as anyone should, and it has taken care of us as well. Did have one condenser replaced along with switch in the dash, along with a minor transmission leak that was covered under warranty. Just returned from a 4500 mile trip and averaged 21.7 mpg, driving around 67 mph.


Favorite Features

cup holders, a/c, good vision all around, nice seats


Suggested Improvements

Increase the fuel economy, and bring back the load levelers in the rear,

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


Review

This was my 2nd Chrysler van and will buy another one in the next few days. It has withstood anything kids and adults could do to it and showed little wear. We have driven long distances with great comfort. Has withstood 96K miles with minor problems that could happen to any vehicle. We did have to replace the driver window motor once. Safety wise it's great as it was rear ended (totaled) by a semi traveling at high speed on a freeway and my 3 grandkids and I walked away without serious injury.


Favorite Features

Captain seats, remote sliding doors and tailgate.

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


Review

Had a '98 Town & Country and was dumb enough to get a 2002 thinking in would be better. Both vans had odor problems with a/c - moldy. Chrysler said they couldn't smell anything. Both vans had the ignition cylinders go bad twice. I was stranded 4 times. The 2002 only has 53,000 miles (but repairs make it seem like $153,000) I've paid for passenger window motor to be replaced ($400), ignition cylinder 2X ($389), wires in crankshaft harness damaged from heat exposure manifold ($400), rack & pinion needs replacing ($1,000) Heater blower wouldn't turn off ($239), cracks in canister hose $130, replaced battery 2X, brakes replaced, serpentine belt replaced 2X, sliding door latch replaced.


Favorite Features

Comfort of ride, sliding doors when they work, automatic back hatch, organizer in back, removable seats, fits a lot of passengers


Suggested Improvements

Fix the a/c odor problem, mold is accumulating somewhere, fix the ignition cylinder problem

Review

I owned my T&C for 3 years...and I loved every minute of it! We purchased this van used with 61,000 miles and never had a big problem other than one issue with the power steering. But once we got over 90,000 miles it started literally coming apart at the seams. The plastic on the bottom of the driver's seat popped off. All the rear brake lights stopped working except for one. The speedometer died. Then the engine started knocking, and we knew it was time to get out fast. I loved all the features of this van, its comfort, the way it drove, etc. But the number of problems we began facing around 90,000 miles was just too many to justify keeping this vehicle.


Favorite Features

Cushy interior, power doors (sides and back), split rear row, captain's chairs.


Suggested Improvements

Improve lighting system -- lights would just go on and off all the time.
