1997 Chrysler Town and Country LXi 4dr Ext Minivan


This vehicle started as a good priced buy. It needed work which I could do and save money. The body was in nice shape but the mechanicals needed more than I expected. Every week for a couple of months it dollared me to death (I have gotten rid of vehicles for giving me less trouble). But I loved the ride and drive. After appx. $1000 in needed work it started to come around. Didn't last long, transmission went out to the tune of $2400. Had it replaced. One major concern from day one. The engine will shut down for appx. a second. If running at highway speeds it will restart. If very slow or stopped it will die completely. But it will restart immediately. This doesn't bother me too much-so far.

Best Features

Gas mileage is good. Ride and drive is great. Lots of room. Upgraded features are enjoyed (trip computer, premium sound, etc.)

Worst Features

Newer models have made vast improvements. Just drive the wheels off of them and enjoy the ride. Don't expect much on a trade-in.
