2000 Chrysler Town and Country Limited 3.8 liter gasoline from North America
A reliability nightmare
The molding around the window warped several times.
There was a rattling noise that the dealer could not fix.
The right sliding door lock intermittently would not work.
The transmission cooler lines leaked fluid and had to be replaced.
The door trim carpeting bubbled several times and the door panels were replaced.
The most troubling problem is that the vehicle burns about 1 quart of oil every 1000-1500 miles. When I took it to the dealer, I was told that this is normal oil consumption. I owned a 1990 Chevrolet Lumina and it had over 200,000 miles and never burned a quart of oil in 5000 miles.
Due to the dealer not willing to admit that the vehicle was consuming oil, I decided to trade the vehicle. Very unfortunate for such a comfortable, good looking vehicle. I spent a lot of money on this vehicle and thought I was getting a quality product. I traded it in because I don't feel that the vehicle was going to make it past 100,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I bought a 2000 Town and Country brand new and have had similar problems. The car developed leaks in the transmission hoses, a rattle in the front driver side that diminishes when you hit the accelerator. I too, have taken it to the dealership to find the rattling problem to no avail. The transmission lines had to be replaced at a cost of $350.00. I currently have only 68,954 miles on the car.
