1998 Chrysler Town and Country LXi 8 cylinder from North America
Get stranded in luxury!
A/C lines developed multiple leaks - estimated $1700 repair.
Radiator fans seized, left me stranded; fixed myself for $100.
Instrument cluster flickers on/off; Odometer sometimes wrong.
Brake system needed replacement.
Transmission cooling system hoses fell off and left me stranded.
Mysterious electrical problem would prevent starting for several hours; happened about once a month.
Heated seats didn't work.
Finally a brake line failed and nearly got me killed, so off to the junkyard it went - good riddance to that heap.
It's a very comfortable and quiet car, handles nicely, the seats are wonderful, and I liked the interior. This was the most gussied-up luxury model they make with many options. I never paid so much for a used car, but it has been one of the worst, most unreliable I've ever had.
My old Dodge Caravan ran like a champ, and I mistakenly sold it at 210,000 miles, but this one just started to fall apart very quickly.
I will say though that the engine and transmission ran smoothly, and they never failed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
