2000 Chrysler Town & Country Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Town & Country is the luxury model in the Chrysler family of minivans that includes the Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager and a recent addition, the Chrysler Voyager.

The Plymouth brand is being phased out, so Voyager is moving over to the Chrysler line, slotting below the ritzy Town & Country in equipment and price levels. Chrysler previously used the Voyager name on minivans sold in Europe and other foreign markets.

Chrysler’s minivans will be redesigned for 2001, and new versions of the Town & Country, Caravan and Chrysler Voyager are due to arrive in the fall with evolutionary styling changes and several new convenience and safety features.

Exterior
Caravan and Voyager come in standard and extended lengths, but Town & Country comes only in the extended length — 200 inches long on a 119-inch wheelbase. All Town & Country models come with dual sliding side doors that open and close manually. Most rival minivans are available with power sliding doors for the passenger side or both sides (Chrysler will introduce dual power doors on its 2001 models.).

The Town & Country’s chief styling distinction from Caravan and Voyager is at the front, where a winged Chrysler emblem dominates the grille.

Interior
All models have seats for seven, with built-in rollers on the middle and rear benches that allow them to be wheeled around instead of carried. The standard two-place middle bench can be replaced with a pair of optional buckets, and the ...

Interior
All models have seats for seven, with built-in rollers on the middle and rear benches that allow them to be wheeled around instead of carried. The standard two-place middle bench can be replaced with a pair of optional buckets, and the one on the passenger side includes an integrated child-safety seat. All models have two front buckets and a three-place rear bench. Top-shelf Limited models come with leather and suede upholstery and heated front seats.

With all seats in place, Town & Country has 20 cubic feet of cargo space at the rear. Removing the middle and rear seats expands cargo room to 163 cubic feet.

Under the Hood
Town & Country comes with front-wheel drive or permanently engaged all-wheel drive and two engine choices — a 3.3-liter V-6 with 158 horsepower is standard on the front-drive LX and LXi. A 180-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 is standard on the front-drive Limited and on all AWD models and optional on the LXi. Both engines team with a four-speed automatic transmission.

Safety
Antilock brakes are standard across the board, and traction control is standard on the front-drive Limited and optional on the front-drive LXi. Side-impact airbags are not available for 2000 but will be standard for front-seat occupants on 2001 models.

Performance
Town & Country doesn’t offer any substantial options that aren’t also available on the Caravan and Voyager, so whether it is worth the extra money depends on how plush you want your minivan surroundings to be.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
