2001 Chrysler Town and Country Limited 3.8L from North America
Comfortable; excellent for a minivan
Automatic tailgate broke six times in first year. Chrysler eventually created a fix. Seem OK ever since. It was a chronic problem with this vehicle until Chrysler put out service bulletin.
Heated seats broke four times in first two years. Each time required two trips to dealer. Work fine now. Claimed not to be a chronic problem with this vehicle.
New tires at 50,000. Not surprising.
New brakes at 50,000. Not surprising.
Very comfortable for a minivan. If you must have a minivan, this is undoubtedly the nicest one. Mechanically it has been reliable. The problems were the "luxury" features of heated seats and power doors.
Handles well enough. So far, this one has been reliable. My old T&C never had a mechanical problem in 120,000 miles. I had doubts about this one since it required so many initial trips to dealer to repair seats and power doors. For last three years has been just great, however.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
