1995 Chrysler Town and Country 3dr Minivan


Build quality-dealer repainted the roof and tailgate because of peeling, plastic coated ext trim began to yellow(due to harsh high altitude sunshine), replaced right fog light because glass lens fell off. Reliability-Radio CD player-replaced at 75,000mi, Fuel pump failed at 120,000 mi, Transmission started to slip at 175,000 mi(then had it rebuilt). <note to get this mileage out of the overdrive transmission-turnoff/shift-out of over drive when climbing any hill, don't wait for the transmission to shift; this allows transmission pump to run, keeping transmission fluid cooler under the stress of hill climbing in overdrive>. Fuel economy constant 22 mpg. Sold after 11 years at 198,543 mi.

Best Features

Previous van was a 1997 Dodge Caravan 4cyl auto short wheelbase. As the family grew we need more space & bought the T&C. Having a 3.8 V6 this van scooted ( how it got its name). Comfort was what we needed for long trips. Liked the electronic instrument panel. Drove city/hwy & mountain roads.

Worst Features

Turning diameter is poor, the new T&C's are 5 ft shorter in diameter which is a great improvement. Fog/driving lights were do not improve night driving(light was very diffused).
