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.

What a lemon

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

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.

2003 limited awd

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

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.




Not so great quality

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

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.

Run away

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

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.

With all of the problems I had with my Honda van, this is a breath of fresh air. I will never buy another Honda again

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 installed soon.
