2001 Chrysler Town and Country LXi from North America
Not a fan of Chrysler.
I believe the Chrysler T&C should be recalled, there are too many people who have the same problems. I purchased my van brand new and have been the only driver. My problems have included:
Stereo making "clicking/spark noise" from the beginning - could never be fixed.
Driver side window would lock up in either up or down position - had to have repaired at my expense.
Drivers seat heater failed - replaced, but failed again.
Air/Heat fan stays full blast - repaired at my expense.
Side door molding fell off interferes with door closing.
Front windshield rubber molding on bottom of windshield came off.
Side back panel fell off on highway.
Car will not start - clicking sound, but does not turn over.
Car slips into neutral while driving.
What a hunk of junk. Chrysler customer service denies that any of these problems are common; however, I see the same problems on many posts. I wanted to put my problems in print so more people could see the pattern of this faulty car.
The Chrysler T&C is an unreliable vehicle. Not a good choice for someone with small children that needs a reliable car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You've owned it for 9 years. It's had its problems, but it's lasted this long hasn't it? It can't be all bad.
I have had mine for 6 years now. 175000 miles, no trouble.
Chrysler's get a bad rap. They aren't the best made cars, but I've noticed that most of the people complaining about them have owned them for a really long time, or have bought them used with no records of maintenance or how the car was driven.
I've never had very good luck with domestic vehicles in general, however, oddly enough, my best experiences have been with Chrysler vehicles.
My last Chrysler vehicle was sold at nearly a quarter of a million miles in perfect running condition. It never had a single repair beyond recommended maintenance. Several of our friends have put well over 200,000 miles on Chrysler and Dodge vans with hardly a problem. These are the best built vans on the planet.
