I bought it in '97 w/ 47k on it--I've had to replace 2 trannies one @75k and another @ 140k and I still like this van, 13 yrs old and still gets 18 mpg avg year round 26+ on the interstate-- I'll drive it 'til it keels over!
Has a comfy interior- handles great- Infinity sound is nice
This has been a terrific van. It has never failed to start and had no repairs except for brakes and normal maintenance. It is a pleasure to drive, gets good fuel mileage, and rides very good. I like it so much, I bought a 2006 Town & Country last December, but I am not getting rid of my '97.
This is my first American
vehicle...and it will be the lost one
too. Got patriotic and bought this,
but it hurt me more than anything. It
is not reliable at all. I had to
change the serpentine belt atleast 3
times (after it givingup in the middle
of the road during our road trip), had
to change power steering pump (during
our roadtrip), had to change waterpump
twice and now the dealer wants me to
spend another $1000 dollars to check
the service engine soon alarm light.
It is about time to take the loss and
dump this junk.
You may save a couple of thousand
dollars when you buy new...but you
won't be able to get the peace of mind
Exterior stlying is good
Discontinue this model and STOP the
production of this vehicle.
