Our goal was to get 232K mIles out of this van so we could say we had traveled (the distance) to the moon. Same transmission--I've had it flushed twice. 268K, mostly highway miles and still humming right along. My siblings who have owned Chevrolet and other minivans prefer the seats in the T&C. I highly recommend this van.

Best ride I ever bought

This has been the best work horse my family ever bought. I still drive it frequently and my now teenage daughters won't let me sell it. I had an 80+ year old gentleman stop me at Publix and told me to never sell it as he had one, sold it, and regretted it. I agreed. Only costs me $150 every 6months to insure and despite less than exemplary milage still is worth keeping. Don't know if I'll let it go before it gives up on me altogether. Glad I bought it.

I just traded in my 2003 T&C with 122,000 miles on it. For all the horrible reviews on this model over the years, this van served me well for 11 years. I think I had it serviced ONE time for anything other than normal maintenance and oil changes. The leather interior is still in excellent shape, the exterior wore well also. That said, I would NOT buy this van used. When I turned mine in the back hatch would fall at inopportune times onto my head, the power windows were failing, and the transmission was both sounding and acting wonky. Gas mileage was horrible.

Bought the van 9 months ago. Recently a 10amp fuse blew causing the van to shut down. That same night after it was fixed the speedometer quit working. Now the van jerks while I'm driving it and the speedometer flies all the way to 120mph. Mechanic replaced speed sensor, that didn't fix it I've had it to him 3 times he finally told me he doesn't know what's wrong with it and he does not want to work on it anymore. I'm praying it's not the transmission (mechanic does not think it is). It has 118,500 miles on it. I hate this van. The drivers seat sits to high, the power window is getting ready to go I would not wish this van on my worse enemy.

We bought this van new in 2003. Has all the bells and whistles, DVD system, power everything, leather 3.8L engine etc. It has been a great vehicle for us. We are just coming up on 200,000 miles and have had very few problems. We have done the brakes once. Just replaced the water pump ( for a whole $120!), other than that just put fuel in it and drive. Fit and finish is still good. Only hardware problem is the left side power sliding door. The clutch is out in it and so it is hard to open manually. It will open under power if you give it a tug. Leather seats are still perfect and still comfortable. We have gotten about 19 MPG.

I have had this van for 3 years now.. new transmission which AAMCO said is very common on this vehicle. Have that checked before you purchase. Now it is leaking fluid from underneath and the steering is horrible.. hopefully both symptoms are the same issue. More to follow on the issue and the price to repair and how common it is. Mine and most I run into have the hood paint peeling bad. I wouldn't purchase again. Would probably go with the Honda if I could have a mulligan.

We bought this van in June of 2004. It had some miles on it but I don’t remember how many. It now has almost 170,000 miles on it. Something leaked and ruined the carpet on the front passenger side. The electronic switch in the windows went bad making it stick occasionally – it would decide when it wanted to start working again. It has only left me stranded once, and that was because the battery died without warning and wouldn’t hold a charge. We replaced the battery and it kept on ticking. This van is quite reliable and I never worry about getting stranded. The driver seat and the front passenger seat is not comfortable either.

My wife and I purchased our Chrysler Town and Country new off of the floor. Within weeks we had it in the dealer for repairs, and then continued to take it in monthly for one thing or another. We are experiencing a shock and sway bar problem, along with a fuel pump issue that makes very noticeable noise. We have taken the vehicle in for the shocks and sway bar to be told that there is nothing wrong. The fuel pump issue will cost us close to $800.00 - $1000.00. We travel with kids for different sporting events and many parents like the space and are impressed with the availability to remove seats for more room but I am honest with them when I tell them that they would end up with a lemon.

To start off, my van only gets 11 mpg. It has had the transmission rebuilt twice, has had 6 sets of rear Infinity speakers & 2 radios because of a buzzing noise. Has been in the shop a lot, but it goes great in the snow and is very comfortable. Probably would buy again but would have wished it was more reliable.

We love this van, now with 116,00 miles on it, runs smooth and still has power. We did not do any repairs beyond warranty and general maintenance until over 100,000 miles. We recently drove the new Chrysler town and Country and the new one does not compare to the great quality of the old 2003. The 2003 is quieter, sits up higher, more solid, rides at least 2 times as good (2003 had Monroe sensitracks on all 4's at 100K). We ended up getting a used 2007 Jeep Cherokee V6, ( very good SUV) that was much better than new Van. We are now sold on this model of Jeep and are keeping the 2003 T&C until she no longer goes, or get the cash for Jeep. Really impressed with the Cherokee.

now has 99,000 miles, gets avg 23mpg, had a problem with window motor, front suspension, sway bar bushings, so have $400 in "repairs" since i bought it new. Giving to my daughter and hope she gets 50K miles more! Now needs front brake pads after 45K miles. They are dirty and stain the wheel covers, Love the styling of body, think it helps milage. Handles great in snow (WI). Too bad the company quality has gone to hell. Wouldn't consider a new one today!

This is my 3rd MoPar mini-van & I would own none other. Yes a few issues over the years but mostly easy-fix things. This 03 did have a transmission issue that was frustrating but the out of state dealer was the headache Not Chrysler or my local dealer. I would/will always own one of these. No chop-chop foreign s-t in my driveway. USA or nothing

I just traded my 2003 Lxi in on a 2009 Limited. The 2003 was a good, dependable van for the most part. I had to replace suspension bushings and the power steering pump and reservoir. We got about 19 mpg around town and 23.5 to 25 mpg on the road, depending on the wind.

I was really excited about this vehicle when I first bought. But after 5 years and the money I've sank into I'll never buy another one again. The steering whines when it's cold and the only way to fix it is to spend $400. The gas tank is going to need replaced because the valve that's broken is inside the tank. My mechanic said that for the past 2 weeks he's had a Dodge or Chrysler minivan in with problems. I still like my minivan but it seems like every month I'm in the body shop for something else.

This is my second T&C. The first went 8 years without a repair. This one was fine until this year when I've had a flurry of repairs -- clean air system, trans module, power steering pump and alternator. Still, at 76,000 miles, it's been cheap to own. It's not a city car; in downtown Chicago, I got 11.5 mpg. Here in Tucson, with more open roads, I get 24 mpg when the A/C is off. That's great for a big vehicle with the 3.8 liter engine. But even better is the ride. In mountains, I just gear down to '3' and go up and down smoothly and quietly, even at 80 mph (I had this up to 120 mph on a flat road in Texas). Prefer driving this to my BMW convert (except for top down days, of course).

This van has been horrible. We bought it slightly used with only 15K miles. Got a great deal because it had depreciated so much from new (wonder why). At 28K miles the starter went out and was replaced by warranty. At 36,800 miles the power steering pump went out and they refused to fix it because the warranty had just expired even though Chrysler issued a service bulletin about it. Since then the AC compressor went out to the tune of nearly $1K. Water pump went out, electric gremlins with the engine management, and now the transmission is slipping. It has just shy of 70K miles on the clock. Gets average of 19mpg and is slow as molasses. Can't wait to get rid of it!

This is my 6th Chrysler mini-van. We have had one since the day Chrysler introduced min-vans. Really. This one is the same as the rest. Reliable, great on mileage for what it does (got 26 on the highway last week at 65 MPH with a van load of stuff), comfortable. Wish this one had the towing package and self-leveling my 2001 had. Kids are gone now and this is still my choice for most flexible 'car'. full leather seats during the week and a full load of sheet rock or lumber on the weekend. And she never complains. I'd get a newer model but there's nothing wrong with this one so why trade side-ways?

I really love my T&C. It drives just like a car, it handles very well. It is very comfortable on long rides, it quit and smooth. The inside is very roomy, and looks good. There are four 12-point power points, which is nice. I absolutely love the center console, tt is big, with many compartments and can even be moved in between the two captain seats in the back. Some cons are, that the column shifter is too big, it blocks some radio controls, and sticks out like a sore thumb. The automatic sliding door is very nice when your hands are full, but when you open/close manually it is very hard to do. I also notice that the outside panels are very thin, they dent VERY easily.

As a pre S & G van it would have been nice for the middle row seats to fit the rear positions as they recline and taller people could have good leg room. The console design is not too well thought out. Too rounded and could have had its' own cup holders. At just under 95,000 miles we had to replace the a/c compressor, alternator and belt slack adjuster. The front strut bearings are very clunky. Fuel economy so-so. We drove the heck out of a Mercedes Vito van in Europe (up to 100 mph/160 kph on the autobahn, in and out of small and large towns) and the 6 cylinder diesel engine gave us 27 mpg with 7 passengers and luggage. I believe that engine is now in one jeep model and a MC sedan.

With 55,000 miles on this van, we have become all too familiar with the mechanics at our local dealership. At least 4 visits for front end work, including replacing the sway bars, bushings, power steering rack, & stabilizer bar. Today it's in for transmission work. I am very disappointed. Would not recommend a Town & Country to anyone.

I love my Town and Country van and would buy another one but I would not buy one without an extended warranty. Numerous problems from small, (sliding door lock broke), to large problems, (today I am having my rack and pinion replaced), have had me in the shop at least 4 times a year. Also, the dealership LIED to me about the warranty covering a rental car. It only covers a rental car if the car has to stay over night. As a single mom this makes it more difficult for me to get to work and chauffeur kids around when my car is in the shop! Chrysler- please work on the quality of your automobiles!

I have owned two Chrysler vans the first was smaller and more sporty, but never caused me an ounce of problems. I traded up to the newer fancier version and have very good luck with it as well. Although I liked driving the smaller van better, It felt more fun, This van is also very comfortable, but you can definitely feel the weight of the limited, even with the larger engine.

Purchased this Town & Country with 17,000 miles. Now have 55,000 and I've had no problems. Runs smooth, handles great and gets as much as 26 mpg on long trips. Recently put on Goodyear Assurance Comfortred tires and the ride is second to none and very quiet. I had a Plymouth Voyager that I bought new and traded in with 137,000 miles that held up well so I decided to stay with a Chrysler product and am very happy.

have enjoyed it so much, as well as the previous one, that I plan to get another if they will change to more color selection and exterior design. I hate to buy one just like I have, then have them change model design and color. Also would like an option of more fuel savings. I love the snub nose, the room in back, look forward to back seat going into the floor. It would be great to have collapsible "boxes" in back for groceries, etc., in addition to hooks. Love the comfort. have had a bit of trouble with the automatic door opening/closing.

Bought the T&C new. The reasons I purchased it still exist: lux leather, ample seating, kid friendly, comfortable seating for 7, many cool features. Lots of bells and whistles. No reliability though. I am 55k miles in - I am on my THIRD transmission. My compressor is shot. I have replaced my front brake pads 6 times, rotors 3 times and calipers once (when they began to smolder). The power sliding door failed twice. The rear door has disconnected 3 times. I have had the car rendered useless and needed to be towed to the dealer - but boy are those heated seats and cupholders nice. I have learned my lesson. Unfortunately it cost me quite a bit of money. No more American cars here.

We have owned our van for 3 years and have 57k miles on it. So far one set of tires and brakes are all we have had to spend money on so far. There have been a couple of recall/service bulletin repairs, but other than that no real inconveniences. We get 17-19 mpg in normal driving and 22-25 on the highway. Stopping at drive throughs cuts down on the mileage! The only complaint I have is the engine doesn't run as smooth as I think it should, dealer says everthing is OK. I didn't want a MV when we went shopping for a vehicle, but after driving it and checking out its features I was sold. It is a perfect family vehicle and I plan on replacing it with a 2006 Town & Country with stow n go seats.

In over 25k mi we're had few probs; the van has been reliable and the dealer has been very attentive. At 17k mi, it needed new front brakes as the rt pads wore into the rotors (not a warranty repair of course). Our prev cars were all manuals, and though this A/T was better than Ford's, it isn't the fastest @ downshifting, even in 3 spd mode. The Honda A/T is fast! The seats, while not the disapearing type, do come out easily, though they're heavy & cumbersome.

We had to replace the engine at 14,000 miles. Also, nuisance fails like, wheel speed sensor (same side twice), the turn signal won't shut off by itself. Now the engine is vibrating at any and all speeds including idle. It comes and goes without warning. When I tried to get a loaner from the dealership, he had six people ahead of me with transmission replacements, and guess what? They were all Dodge and Chrysler minivans!!!! I'm buying a Toyota. They are one of the only American made vehicles these days anyway.

I bought a 2003 brand new Town & Country mini van on June 03. Now it has 37,000 miles. The window has drop inside the door once, both front brakes were broken on highway this summer, two front tires have to replace today, the power steering cooler and hose were broken today too. What kind of car do you guys make? Could you learn something from the Japanese?

I purchased my T/C in 3/03 and am very satisfied with it. However, city mileage leaves much to be desired. My old Buick Roadmaster wagon got 10 mpg in city. The T/C barely gets 12 mpg. Not good when gas is nearly $3 a gallon! Most of my driving is in city. Highway mileage not bad though...about 24 or so, 26 if you're easy on the gas. Overall, not a bad vehicle if you're willing to put up with less than stellar fuel economy.

My 03 T&C Limited Minivan has been a major disappointment. With 40K miles, transmission needed rebuilding, power steering system entirely replaced. Now a water leak in front passenger seat has ruined carpet. I will never buy another Chrysler vehicle. Should have bought the Honda/Toyota. No wonder Chrysler's in trouble. Don't buy one!!

For those of you who think your Chrysler mini-van is so wonderful, let the buyer beware. I have owned a T&C Limited ($38,000 MSRP) that only has 30,000 miles and 22 months on the road. Here's a list of repairs to date: Tranmission repair (<6000 miles), Fuel injection repair, power lift gate repair, power steering recall, A/C leak, and now at 30,000 miles the tranmission is being rebuilt. All covered by the warranty, but who wants to buy a new car and have these major repair issues. Never again will I buy a Chrysler product. Probably trade it in and write off the experience (not to mention the $16,000 depreciation in value for a mini-van) to bad judgement.

Our 2003 Chrysler T&C needed a new engine (3.3L) at 14000 mi.!!! It started making a knocking noise one day, the next it would not turn over. It spun a bearing on the number two cylinder. Now the ABS has stopped working and the part is still not in after three weeks. This morning, it barely turned over (sounded like it wasn't getting fuel),spitting and sputtering for about 15 seconds. Yes it was cold (about 5 degrees) but I had the engine block heater plugged in, my bro never had problems with his Toyotas. I bought this because the ride was the best (and still is for what it's worth) and because of the deep discount.

Owning this van has changed my life! It is the most comfortable ride I have ever had. Many cars bounce and vibrate the passenger. This one floats across most roads, never sending shock waves to the passenger. It handles like a small car, but holds a multitude of items I need to carry as I travel. I love the automatic tailgate and side door openers, as well as the ease of altering the seats and console. The heated seats are wonderful in our NC winter climate! I can't think of anything that displeases me about this car, except I wish the horn had a nicer sound. I have also been extremely satisfied with the service department at our local dealer.

Van is spacious and comfortable. Looked at Honda and GM before deciding on Chrysler. GM was way out-of-date and didn't like the "utilitarian" styling of Honda. Ride is good, power is adequate, though fuel economy has been poor. Sticker showed 18/25, but we haven't seen above 20 even on the highway. Of course, we're driving ~70mph and EPA rating is for 48mph!

Never again. Dummy me bought every possible option (with a sticker of 40k) thinking that I would keep this car forever. 14 months later sold it for only 24.5k because I couldn't take it anymore. Power door modules replaced twice in first month. Never did fix the problem. Engine idled rough for first 20 minutes every morning (dealer found nothing wrong and Chrysler rep. said everything was normal-nothing we can do) Transmission started slipping at 5k miles. Lots of nice features but mechanically scary. Avg 10.5 mpg city and 16 mpg hwy. Went and bought 2004 GMC Yukon XL. Much much happier.

My van is one year old and to date I have had to replace a transmission shifting sylinoid and the water pump. Delivered with primer only on the passenger door frame & without headliner clips. The courtesy lights on the interior switches do not illuminate on the town and country. This feature, from what I was told by the dealer, was deleted per Chrysler Engineering even though the switches on older models do light up. I have tried to get the power passenger doors adjusted but the dealer states that there is no adjustment allowed. The doors on my old Dodge Grand Caravan were much more quiet. 3.8 V-6 19.8 avg mpg no matter how I drive.

Before we purchased this minivan, we did a lot of research on all makes of vans. Relability was strong factor in our descision; but not the only one. Even though Chryslers reliablity record wasn't the greatest, there were none with an outstanding record of reliablity. We've had friends and family with all different makes and models, each with their own problems and vowing never to buy that make or model again. When you factor in how far ahead the T&C limited is in comfort, ride, looks, usability, features, overall happiness and bang for your buck, there really is no other choice but the T&C limited.

I bought this vehicle based on interior room and an impressive test drive. With only 1200 miles it needed major transmission work and has since been serviced again for the transmission and three times for a "check engine" light. On two occassions the van died completely while running. All told the car has been in the shop 30 days. Unfortunately, with only 18k miles, the car has lost over 50% of it's value (based on a quote by our Chrysler dealer). Beware of Chrysler quality and be aware that your Chrysler is not worth much after you drive it off the lot.

After 12 years of owning a large SUV, I got tired of the gas mileage and the poor drive, but still needed the space for gear. The T&C LXi fit the bill: good value,lots of options, great ride, plenty of room inside, great sound system, quiet inside, and was great on a recent long trip to Florida. It took 4 men on a fishing and wine shopping spree with plenty of room to spare

It seems they put the wrong wireing harnes on but then told me it was a design change and they were not going to replace it. This is just one problem, there were many other's in a short period of time.The car was in the shop over 20 day's. I traded it yesterday with only 6,000 miles.

This is the 5th version of Chrysler's minivans and while it is early yet for some things, ride quality is the best yet. Our previous version which is still rolling was 1999 Pymouth Grand Voyager SE with 309,000 miles on her, her service record has been nothing short of spectacular. The engine is still as smooth and nearly as quiet as the day she rolled off the lot. So, we have high hopes for this model.

This is an outstanding product with the right balance of performance, features, and price for the typical middleclass American family. This is our third Chrysler Minivan, and the first two racked up 179k and 156k miles without any major breakdowns or more than routine maintenance. Our family loves these vans. We've looked HARD at the competition each time (drove a Honda Odyssey for two weeks), and Chrysler still offers by far the best minivan value on the market.

We recently traded our 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan for this van and we are very happy with the new design. Nothing is perfect, but the ride and quiet interior more than make up for the negatives. Two problems: rear seat is now a split bench and much narrower than our 2000 caravan. We used to be able to sit three people in the back, now there is only room for two. Second, the rims are touted as chrome rims, but they are really just aluminum rims with chrome caps. I would have much rather had a set of nice aluminum rims instead of cheap looking chrome caps. I'm most disappointed with this very cheap looking feature on a $38000 van.

We were going to drive our 97 Grand Caravan Sport two more years, but the incentives were great. With rebates the dealer knocked of $6,200! For a base model it has everything we need. The ride and transmition is very smooth. No wind noise and no squeeks so far at 3,000 miles. The quad seats are great for the tweenagers. The headlights are much improved over the previous model also. I would say a great overall value.

Wanted an '04 Sienna, but couldn't pass up the rebates and Carmax pricing at nearly $10k off MSRP, brand new. We really wanted to love this van, but -- people rave about how quiet the T&C is, but ours has a serious wind leak (door alignment problem, we're told) right by the driver's head so it's not quiet. The windshield washer hose broke after one week. And we get 13 mpg around town, 17 mpg on a recent highway trip. Expected much better. Bottom line -- wish we would have gotten the '04 Sienna.

Some things do not work as described in owners manual (i.e adj pedals and memory seats, console messages, etc). Dealer has replaced BCM to correct some programable functions that . Have trailer tow package and ride is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Also have experienced power side doors opening on their own. On the plus side, I like the room and the interior and exterior design. Am also satisfied with the performance and gas mileage.

Almost bought a '04 Sienna but too expensive and found the build and interior quality surprisingly poor for a Toyota. The T&C drives better and the a/c is much, much better. Very smooth ride and quiet in contrast to my previous minivan, a Windstar. Hopefully reliability has improved and the 7/70 powertrain warranty gives some peace of mind.

We purchased a new Cheysler T&C Limited AWD and I believe there will be no differance between this vehicle and the other Chrysler vehicles we've owned in the past. In 1100 miles of pure driving pleasure we've experienced only one minor problem and that was with the visor brackets over both the drivers and passengers side of the vehicle, which were cracked due to over- tighting. The dealer has ordered the visor kits and hopefully will have them installed soon.

I love the way the car looks and handles. The driver's seat and front passenger seat are firm and exceptionally comfortable. However, the middle row is problematic. The two middle seats are fixed into position(they cannot be slid forward or backwards). As a result, while my 22 month old has no complaints about the legroom, an average-sized adult will become quite uncomfortable on all but the shortest trips while in the 2nd row.

Leased up from a 2000 Ford Windstar. 2003 LXI is much quieter, both road noise and wind noise. Doors shut much more solid, not tinny like the Ford. I haven't found any squeaks or noises coming from the inside compartment. Great sound system for a stock unit. Everything works at delivery. The car gets 21.8 MPH driving at 60 MPH for an extended period, not too bad for the 3.8 engine. Power doors and hatch work and have sensors in case something gets in the way. What gets me is this is a so called "American car", made in Canada. My wife's car is "American" also, PT Cruiser, made in Mexico...go figure. I used to drive a Honda, "foreign car" made in Ohio.

I think that this is the best van in all the vans in the "9 most wanted best fuel ecconomy vans" contest. It's the best looking, best performanced, most reasonable German van ever!

I have had nothing but problems since purchasing my new Van. Washer motor failures, Brakes squealing within 6000 miles, rear wiper motor failure..... The van has been in the shop more than on the road..... Beware and avoid the mistake I made

Traded a 2001 T&C Limited and I could not believe the negative changes that Chrysler made in their FLAGSHIP van. Changed 8 way passenger power seat to a 4 way.Big downgrade on tires. Changed rear seat from an adjustiable front to back to a fixed split seat. Owners manual states that adjust pedals are in the memory system BUT they are not. They did add heated seats which I really need in south Mississippi.! What else did they change that you can't see.???

GREAT VAN

Never thought I would drive a Chrysler but the 7/70000 warranty and the 3500 rebate got me. It is a great van. The only things that Chrysler can improve on is the doors, you got to slam them shut.

I've had the van for a month now and still love it. No regrets. Originally wanted an Odyssey but just liked the T&C better after driving and comparing them for a couple of weeks. Great ride, great features. Wish gas mileage was better, but it is a minivan afterall, not a Civic.

This is my second T&C Had a 2001 and decided to take advantage of good buy on new vehicle. After having Mountaineer and Ford E 150 conversion van, the T&C ride and drive is so much easier, especially on trips. Am well satisfied with interior design and comfort.

Never thought I'd find myself in a minivan, but I'm very pleased with the choice. Luxurious, suprisingly fun to drive and hands down the winner in the looks department (inside and out). Drove the Windstar and Odyssey and this vehicle is far quieter and handles better. An excellent alternative to driving and SUV. All the room without the truck ride and handling.

I enjoyed this van until the transmission began to slip at 1700 mi and locked at 2nd gear. The nearby Dodge dealership took almost 2 weeks to try to fix it. I won't buy from Chrysler again.

The only van in the market with a AWD. Outside design is superb. May not be as reliable as the Odyssey(which is the biggest competitor). The comfort inside is superb. The only one in the market to sell a combo of sunroof plus an entertainment system.

Powertrain: Smooth, reasonably fuel efficient, good acceleration around town. Transmission shift superbly and chooses gears well. Car can lug effortlessly at very low rpms without problems. Ride and comfort: 1st class HVAC system. Seats are firm but shaped well. Ride (I have the towing pkg.) is surprisingly firm but the vehicle maintains excellent composure...feels like a Euro-tuned sedan. Ride is quiet, especially road noise. Wind noise is well muffled. Fit & finish and quality: A Couple rattles and one creak on pass. sliding door. Materials and look are best-in- class for now. Slick instrumentation lighting.

Although expensive, this vehicle is well worth the price. The ride is comfortable, the steering response nimble; and the sound system is among the best stock systems I have ever seen. You definatly get the feeling of riding a luxury car. Even the trip computer fuel economy gage is accurate. Most cars I have seen are not accurate. This is definatly a good all around design.

We'd just traded our '01 Mercedes ML320 for a '03 TC Ltd AWD: Our first American vehicle after yrs of European automobile. The experience has been nothing but fun and pleasant. The TC is wonderfully smooth, refined and luxurious. Our 2 yr old twin boys loves the DVD player and we love the sound system. We still like our second car, a '01 Volvo XC70 but my husband prefers to drive the TC now..

Unbelievable ride and decent handling. Captains chairs times 4, and third row seating that tall adults can actually be comfortable in. Sound system, DVD and other little knick knack ammenities make you forget your in a Minivan. Never thought I would own one, figure I'd get a top of the line now that I had to get one with arrival of bambino. Keyless auto doors rock!

I could not put the correct purchase date so here I say it was purchased in March 2000. Actually a lease. After 3 years the biggest annoyances were leaking transmission ...hoses that consistantly leaked when weather changes to cold. No charge repairs. .... also an annoying required replacement of the rotors and brakes every 7k miles due to warping. This WAS a cost of about $325 each time. Three times for me. In gerneral a "good" car. But nothing more than that. Quality still goes to Honda .... but Honda is too stark and bland for me. Particularly the interior.

When we started shopping for a MV it was Honda all the way. We even had one on order. At the very end of the long investigation process we gave the Chrysler products a nice long road test. My wife and I turned to each other during the ride and agreed that this was the MV for us. It fits us perfectly. After 4000 miles there are no reliability issues. Oh and Mr. Ody owner - when you hear that beeping sound could you please stand back while my tailgate opens automatically...

After swearing never to buy another Chrysler product because of horrible quality and customer service with a 2000 model car, my wife insisted we buy American when we looked at minivans. Honestly, I have been pleasantly surprised. This vehicle has run well and been very solid. Comparing the 2002 and 2003, I can clearly see some cost cutting has taken place. For example, I bought the Limited...it came with a doughnut. Overall, I am pleased with the vehicle. The electric doors are a big plus with kids and the ride is smooth and quiet. I am happy.

we just purchased a anew 2003 Chrysler Town and Country Limit AWD and this is one nice car. We had previously owned a 2000 Chrysler T+C AWD and it was very nice. Pleanty of power under the hood and beautiful styling. This model is packed with features like the power doors and trunk. Our car also has the DVD 7" screen and wireless headphones and A SUNROOF! Finally Chrysler decided to do something new... the AWD is great in the snow and i would recommend this car to anyone who wants the luxury and handleing of a BWM or Benz but need the mini-van size... it's the Cadillac of Mini-vans....and all those who like the Honda Odessy, you got nothing on this car!

I bought this car 6 months ago. It has about 10,000 miles on it, so its relatively new. So far, the car has had absolutely no problems. It rides like a mercedes E class. Classy design. It hauls my 4 kids, wife, and a car packed with 2 weeks worth of luggage easily. You get good gas mileage and more than sufficient power from the 3.3 liter V6. Decent sound system. Don't believe the Honda reviews. The Odyssey rides like a truck with no shocks compared to my T&C.

For the first time in nearly 17 years, a "home-made" vehicle sits in my driveway. Hondas and Nissans and Mazdas have all done well for us, but this Town & Country intrigued me, and so I bought it. Obviously too early to tell (one week), but the buying experiece as well as the fit of the van was/is excellent. It is a brilliant cruising vessel, as the 1500 miles we (two adults, three BIG teens) traveled in that first week showed. At the end of our ten hour drive, I turned to the missus and said, "I could go another ten hours driving this." It is SOOO comfortable. Everything works, runs and rides great...easily worth the 31K. Tune in next week!
