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.

Great used car

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

Bought this van used with 38,000 miles on it. It will go past 100,000 miles this weekend on a road trip. Never been in the shop once. Just oil changes. Very reliable van and very nice inside.




It's a minivan

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

I have owned two Chrysler vans the first was smaller and more sporty, but never caused me an ounce of problems. I traded up to the newer fancier version and have very good luck with it as well. Although I liked driving the smaller van better, It felt more fun, This van is also very comfortable, but you can definitely feel the weight of the limited, even with the larger engine.




Don't judge a book by

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

Bought the T&C new. The reasons I purchased it still exist: lux leather, ample seating, kid friendly, comfortable seating for 7, many cool features. Lots of bells and whistles. No reliability though. I am 55k miles in - I am on my THIRD transmission. My compressor is shot. I have replaced my front brake pads 6 times, rotors 3 times and calipers once (when they began to smolder). The power sliding door failed twice. The rear door has disconnected 3 times. I have had the car rendered useless and needed to be towed to the dealer - but boy are those heated seats and cupholders nice. I have learned my lesson. Unfortunately it cost me quite a bit of money. No more American cars here.

Pretty darn good!

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

In over 25k mi we're had few probs; the van has been reliable and the dealer has been very attentive. At 17k mi, it needed new front brakes as the rt pads wore into the rotors (not a warranty repair of course). Our prev cars were all manuals, and though this A/T was better than Ford's, it isn't the fastest @ downshifting, even in 3 spd mode. The Honda A/T is fast! The seats, while not the disapearing type, do come out easily, though they're heavy & cumbersome.




Nice but crummy city mileage

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

I purchased my T/C in 3/03 and am very satisfied with it. However, city mileage leaves much to be desired. My old Buick Roadmaster wagon got 10 mpg in city. The T/C barely gets 12 mpg. Not good when gas is nearly $3 a gallon! Most of my driving is in city. Highway mileage not bad though...about 24 or so, 26 if you're easy on the gas. Overall, not a bad vehicle if you're willing to put up with less than stellar fuel economy.
