2002 Chrysler Town and Country LX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
The brakes wear out very early (22k
miles), there are a lot of rattles,
power steering hose has blown twice and
dealer says we are not eligible for the
recall/upgrade version of this hose
because we are out of the date range
(models within a specific build date
range qualify for an updated power
steering hose replaced via warranty).
The biggest disappointment is the trade-
in value, $12,800 for a vehicle in
EXCELLENT condition inside and out!!
This is less than half the purchase
price, does this mean the vehicle has
passed half it's usefull life and
therefore will be worthless on it's 4th
Room for upwardly mobile family of 5.
Improve brake life, fix the interior
fit and finish to eliminate rattles and
squeeks, make them more reliable
overall mechanically, then the re-
sale/trade-in value will improve

Great for traveling with loads
of "creature comforts"! Rear seats can
recline back (open) for a nice sized
napping area. 3 power ports and a
cellphone charger plug keeps everyone
happy. Sound stereo has 10 speakers for
full-around sound. This is my 2nd
Chrysler van - it just keeps getting
Rear reclining seats - NOT TUMBLE AND
HIDE. More convenient, opens to a
small bed like conversion vans. No
other Minivan offers this!!
Stronger engine and Transmissions. The
Chrysler/Dodge products are based on
the Intrepid Platform, which may work
for the car, but tough when you load up
a van with people and stuff.
2002 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Just not enough horses for the
weight. The motor idles rough. Also
the body fit and finish is not as good
as the 98' Pontiac Transport I had.
Inside is another story. No rattles
at 30000 miles. Still the nicest van
I have been in. Long story short,
next car/van will be a GM.
MORE HORSES OR LOWER GEARS!!! Get the
rough idle fixed.
2002 Chrysler Town and Country EX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
This Town & Country has been one of
best driving vehicles we have owned. I
also think it's the best looking mini
van out there. Interior comfort &
convenience is very good. The stereo
is excellent. Now the bad: Way too
many problems for a low milage, two-
year old vehicle! Leaking
Transmission, (2) power windows, (3)
air bag modules, (1) power sliding
door.We are getting rid of it
now...warranty will end soon.
Styling, Handling, Powertrain, Stereo,
value at the time of purchase.
