Real Lemon

by No Chrysler Fan from Colorado on Mon Jun 11 2012

I would never own another Chrysler Town & Country. This car stalls at random times but then will restart. It stalled on my wife 3 times in ONE block once. This is apparently common on T&Cs, BUT no recalls OR no solutions forthcoming from Chrysler! Mechanics simply CAN NOT figure out why it keeps stalling. You can google this problem and find there are over a dozen thoughts on how to fix this, BUT NONE WORK! Bottom line: no one knows WHY it stalls!

useful Town and Country

by Boater from NE PA on Mon Jul 17 2006

This car would be excellent for driving in NE PA's snowy winters, lugging kids and ski's to local ski areas. In the summer it would be great for towing boat, bikes, and kayaks all at once to local lakes. Seats seven adults comfortably and still have room for their life jackets, paddles and picnic supplies.

opps!

by car daddy from clayton on Tue Jul 11 2006

the front seat panel where the nobbs for the power seats are, comes apart very easly and there is no way to fit this problem. once a check enegine lite comes on expect it to continue three to four times in a matter of 2 months before having a break from repairs.

Our Take on the 1997 Chrysler Town & Country

Let's say you buy into the idea that a minivan is the ideal vehicle for you. And let's say you want one with all the bells and whistles.

The list of potential vehicles would be small. The all-wheel-drive Toyota Previa and Mazda MPV All-Sport would be on it, as well as one or two others.

But few come as well-equipped as Chrysler's Town & Country LXi - a vehicle that can lay claim to being the ultimate minivan.

From its richly appointed leather interior to its all-wheel-drive system, the Town & Country has it all.

PERFORMANCE, HANDLING

The Town & Country's standard engine is a 12-valve, 3.3-liter V-6 that is rated at 158 horsepower. But when you order the LXi package, you not only get a bigger motor... Read More
