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.

Served me well for eleven

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I just traded in my 2003 T&C with 122,000 miles on it. For all the horrible reviews on this model over the years, this van served me well for 11 years. I think I had it serviced ONE time for anything other than normal maintenance and oil changes. The leather interior is still in excellent shape, the exterior wore well also. That said, I would NOT buy this van used. When I turned mine in the back hatch would fall at inopportune times onto my head, the power windows were failing, and the transmission was both sounding and acting wonky. Gas mileage was horrible.




Not thrilled

Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have had this van for 3 years now.. new transmission which AAMCO said is very common on this vehicle. Have that checked before you purchase. Now it is leaking fluid from underneath and the steering is horrible.. hopefully both symptoms are the same issue. More to follow on the issue and the price to repair and how common it is. Mine and most I run into have the hood paint peeling bad. I wouldn't purchase again. Would probably go with the Honda if I could have a mulligan.




2003 lxi owner review

Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I just traded my 2003 Lxi in on a 2009 Limited. The 2003 was a good, dependable van for the most part. I had to replace suspension bushings and the power steering pump and reservoir. We got about 19 mpg around town and 23.5 to 25 mpg on the road, depending on the wind.

Steering/front end problems.

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Rack & pinion failed at 55,000 miles due to bad seals in the pump reservoir cost $800. In my life time I have never replaced this item on any car. One month later I have front shocks and swaybar problem,cost $998 to repair. This is my last American car.




6th mini-van .. and will

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

This is my 6th Chrysler mini-van. We have had one since the day Chrysler introduced min-vans. Really. This one is the same as the rest. Reliable, great on mileage for what it does (got 26 on the highway last week at 65 MPH with a van load of stuff), comfortable. Wish this one had the towing package and self-leveling my 2001 had. Kids are gone now and this is still my choice for most flexible 'car'. full leather seats during the week and a full load of sheet rock or lumber on the weekend. And she never complains. I'd get a newer model but there's nothing wrong with this one so why trade side-ways?




Chrysler needs to work on

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chrysler Town and Country LXi Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I love my Town and Country van and would buy another one but I would not buy one without an extended warranty. Numerous problems from small, (sliding door lock broke), to large problems, (today I am having my rack and pinion replaced), have had me in the shop at least 4 times a year. Also, the dealership LIED to me about the warranty covering a rental car. It only covers a rental car if the car has to stay over night. As a single mom this makes it more difficult for me to get to work and chauffeur kids around when my car is in the shop! Chrysler- please work on the quality of your automobiles!
