Review of the 2003 Chrysler Town and Country

  • Pleasing to drive and ride in, but the T&C lacks a few key features, as well as the rock-solid reliability record of its import rivals.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent ride and handling, refined drivetrain, comfortable and luxurious interior.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2003

    Two new options debut -- a one-touch power sunroof (that Chrysler boasts is one of the largest available in a minivan) and a factory-, not dealer-, installed DVD entertainment system that comes with wireless headphones. Audiophiles will appreciate the new six-CD changer, an upgrade over the previous four-disc unit. Note that the LX AWD model has been discontinued, thus requiring buyers who want all-wheel drive to step up to the more expensive LXi and Limited models to get it.

Not that bad

Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LX Family Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

We bought this van in June of 2004. It had some miles on it but I don’t remember how many. It now has almost 170,000 miles on it. Something leaked and ruined the carpet on the front passenger side. The electronic switch in the windows went bad making it stick occasionally – it would decide when it wanted to start working again. It has only left me stranded once, and that was because the battery died without warning and wouldn’t hold a charge. We replaced the battery and it kept on ticking. This van is quite reliable and I never worry about getting stranded. The driver seat and the front passenger seat is not comfortable either.




Lemon

My wife and I purchased our Chrysler Town and Country new off of the floor. Within weeks we had it in the dealer for repairs, and then continued to take it in monthly for one thing or another. We are experiencing a shock and sway bar problem, along with a fuel pump issue that makes very noticeable noise. We have taken the vehicle in for the shocks and sway bar to be told that there is nothing wrong. The fuel pump issue will cost us close to $800.00 - $1000.00. We travel with kids for different sporting events and many parents like the space and are impressed with the availability to remove seats for more room but I am honest with them when I tell them that they would end up with a lemon.

Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LX Family Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

We love this van, now with 116,00 miles on it, runs smooth and still has power. We did not do any repairs beyond warranty and general maintenance until over 100,000 miles. We recently drove the new Chrysler town and Country and the new one does not compare to the great quality of the old 2003. The 2003 is quieter, sits up higher, more solid, rides at least 2 times as good (2003 had Monroe sensitracks on all 4's at 100K). We ended up getting a used 2007 Jeep Cherokee V6, ( very good SUV) that was much better than new Van. We are now sold on this model of Jeep and are keeping the 2003 T&C until she no longer goes, or get the cash for Jeep. Really impressed with the Cherokee.




Hate to see it go!

Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LX Family Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

now has 99,000 miles, gets avg 23mpg, had a problem with window motor, front suspension, sway bar bushings, so have $400 in "repairs" since i bought it new. Giving to my daughter and hope she gets 50K miles more! Now needs front brake pads after 45K miles. They are dirty and stain the wheel covers, Love the styling of body, think it helps milage. Handles great in snow (WI). Too bad the company quality has gone to hell. Wouldn't consider a new one today!




Disappointed

Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LX Family Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

I was really excited about this vehicle when I first bought. But after 5 years and the money I've sank into I'll never buy another one again. The steering whines when it's cold and the only way to fix it is to spend $400. The gas tank is going to need replaced because the valve that's broken is inside the tank. My mechanic said that for the past 2 weeks he's had a Dodge or Chrysler minivan in with problems. I still like my minivan but it seems like every month I'm in the body shop for something else.




Really delighted

Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LX Family Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is my second T&C. The first went 8 years without a repair. This one was fine until this year when I've had a flurry of repairs -- clean air system, trans module, power steering pump and alternator. Still, at 76,000 miles, it's been cheap to own. It's not a city car; in downtown Chicago, I got 11.5 mpg. Here in Tucson, with more open roads, I get 24 mpg when the A/C is off. That's great for a big vehicle with the 3.8 liter engine. But even better is the ride. In mountains, I just gear down to '3' and go up and down smoothly and quietly, even at 80 mph (I had this up to 120 mph on a flat road in Texas). Prefer driving this to my BMW convert (except for top down days, of course).
