Bought the van 9 months ago. Recently a 10amp fuse blew causing the van to shut down. That same night after it was fixed the speedometer quit working. Now the van jerks while I'm driving it and the speedometer flies all the way to 120mph. Mechanic replaced speed sensor, that didn't fix it I've had it to him 3 times he finally told me he doesn't know what's wrong with it and he does not want to work on it anymore. I'm praying it's not the transmission (mechanic does not think it is). It has 118,500 miles on it. I hate this van. The drivers seat sits to high, the power window is getting ready to go I would not wish this van on my worse enemy.

We bought this van new in 2003.
Has all the bells and whistles, DVD system, power everything, leather 3.8L engine etc.
It has been a great vehicle for us.
We are just coming up on 200,000 miles and have had very few problems.
We have done the brakes once.
Just replaced the water pump ( for a whole $120!), other than that just put fuel in it and drive.
Fit and finish is still good.
Only hardware problem is the left side power sliding door.
The clutch is out in it and so it is hard to open manually.
It will open under power if you give it a tug.
Leather seats are still perfect and still comfortable.
We have gotten about 19 MPG.

To start off, my van only gets 11 mpg. It has had the transmission rebuilt twice, has had 6 sets of rear Infinity speakers & 2 radios because of a buzzing noise. Has been in the shop a lot, but it goes great in the snow and is very comfortable. Probably would buy again but would have wished it was more reliable.

Never again. Dummy me bought every
possible option (with a sticker of 40k)
thinking that I would keep this car
forever. 14 months later sold it for
only 24.5k because I couldn't take it
anymore. Power door modules replaced
twice in first month. Never did fix the
problem. Engine idled rough for first
20 minutes every morning (dealer found
nothing wrong and Chrysler rep. said
everything was normal-nothing we can do)
Transmission started slipping at 5k
miles. Lots of nice features but
mechanically scary. Avg 10.5 mpg city
and 16 mpg hwy. Went and bought 2004
GMC Yukon XL. Much much happier.

We purchased a new Cheysler T&C Limited
AWD and I believe there will be no
differance between this vehicle and the
other Chrysler vehicles we've owned in
the past. In 1100 miles of pure
driving pleasure we've experienced only
one minor problem and that was with the
visor brackets over both the drivers
and passengers side of the vehicle,
which were cracked due to over-
tighting. The dealer has ordered the
visor kits and hopefully will have them
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.
