2002 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I owned my T&C for 3 years...and I loved every minute of it! We purchased this van used with 61,000 miles and never had a big problem other than one issue with the power steering. But once we got over 90,000 miles it started literally coming apart at the seams. The plastic on the bottom of the driver's seat popped off. All the rear brake lights stopped working except for one. The speedometer died. Then the engine started knocking, and we knew it was time to get out fast. I loved all the features of this van, its comfort, the way it drove, etc. But the number of problems we began facing around 90,000 miles was just too many to justify keeping this vehicle.


Best Features

Cushy interior, power doors (sides and back), split rear row, captain's chairs.


Worst Features

Improve lighting system -- lights would just go on and off all the time.

2002 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We bought this van used, but felt confident because of reviews we've read online. The van is beautiful and comes with just about every creature comfort I could imagine. However, we have also encountered every mechanical problem you can imagine. Brakes wear out very fast, gas mileage is terrible. We average 11 mpg in the city and 15 mpg on the highway. We've lost the air-bag clockpring twice, the check engine light comes on all the time, air-conditioner had to be replaced twice, too many issues to list. I would never purchase another one. Definitely not the car for these economic times, either. But it is pretty and you can fit just about the whole soccer team in there.


Best Features

Shopping bag hooks. Smart Computer. CD changer. Many power outlets. Map light. Auto headlights. Heated seats and outside temp gauge.


Worst Features

External button for lift-gate. Gas mileage. Fix the general mechanics and electrical system so you get what you paid for.

2002 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Great car. Roomy, comfortable, able to carry 7 people in comfort. Can haul a 5x8 trailer too. The interior has stood up to the wear and tear of our grandchildren without any tears. The video system has brought a great deal of enjoyment too. The climate control system works well. The only component we had trouble with was the radio. We had to replace it with one we bought on ebay for about $20. Easy to replace, took about 15 min.


Best Features

Seats, doors, hauling capacity.


Worst Features

Bigger brakes and tires.

Engine grinding noise after turning off, cause timing belt. All 3 pwr doors don't work properly. Brake rotors over-heat,need replacing per 15kmi. More problems than can be listed.

All the cool features, but only if they work properly which usually doen't.

SIMPLE: MAKE EVERYTHING WORK!!! Follow the Buick, Lexus and Cadillac lead. They simply got it right, MAKE EVERTHING WORK. DO NOT BUY CHRYSLER!!!

2002 Chrysler Town and Country EX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased our 02 T&C new. We have put 66,000 miles on it and it has been nothing but trouble. Engine burns a quart of oil every 800 miles. Power steering system had to be replaced. Power doors have failed...twice. Rear hatch failed. Various electrical components in the engine have failed. All in all, a nightmare and Chrysler has not stood behind the product. Buy a Honda.
