2002 Chrysler Town and Country ex 3.8L from North America
The car is poorly made and unreliable
Burns a quart of oil every 800 miles. Dealer tried various things to fix it, but never got anywhere. The service manager told me it needed a new engine, but Chrysler refuses to fix it. They claim this is "normal oil consumption". Power steering system failed and had to be replaced in its entirety. Motor on left sliding door failed. Bushings on front end had to be replaced at 30,000 miles; car is now at 49,000 and it sounds like they are going again.
This car has been a reliability nightmare. I have made more trips to the dealer than with any other car I have ever owned. Junk.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My 2002 Town Country started burning a quart of oil at 30000 and is now up to a quart every 650 miles at 49000. The dealership is no help and wants all oil change receipts before they will even consider looking at the vehicle. This is difficult since I do my own oil change.
Other issues are power steering troubles, 2 times repaired under warranty and still causing trouble. And front brakes already on my 2nd pair and heading for #3.
