2004 Chrysler Town & Country BaseReview
Great Reliability, Bad Ridability. — I have owned this car for the last three years and the best thing I can say about it is it's been reliable. In those three years, outside the standard oil change, I've only had to replace tires, and a few minor things that go out on all cars (light bulbs, a few cheap interior plastic items). Aside from this, there aren't many positives. The interior is filled with cheap plastics that scratch or fall off with no effort at all. Even though I'm very careful with this car since I'm saving to to a better car soon, I have still had to replace several things on the inside that couldn't handle daily use. Which comes to my second negative point, the brakes in this car are absurdly awful. I don't know if it's a bad ABS system or just the weight of the car, but whenever I go to press the brakes, I'm afraid they're going to fall off.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Very spacious and definitely not lacking in power when you need it. Great reliability as well.
Cons: Bad interior build quality, lots of plastics.

2004 Chrysler Town & Country LXReview
Not So Good —
It's a Chrysler! At just under 60K, the a/c is shot and the suspension is creaking (sway bar bushing, strut mount, tie rod end, who knows?). Chrysler has lived up to its poor reputation for build quality with this vehicle. On the good side, it's roomy, comfy, and safe. The engine is an old design, which is good and bad. The 3.3L V6 is a smaller version of the 3.8L V6, which is itself a V6 version of the Dodge/Chrysler 318cid V8. All that to say it's a relatively smooth, quiet, and composed pushrod engine. However, its 185hp is weak compared to others in the class, and Chrysler would do well to update. At least to OHC, but preferably to DOHC with variable valve timing and a five- or six-speed automatic. The transaxle is a terrible design, and has been since its inception in the 80's. Although it's been strengthened (and renamed from A604 to 41TE), it is still relatively weak and short-lived compared to other automatics. And with only 3 gears plus overdrive, it's now outdated. Chrysler, make a better product or you will sink. Treat your customers better, or no one will mourn your sinking.
Pros: comfy, safe, lots of room
Cons: poor quality, old timey engine/transaxle
2004 Chrysler Town & Country EXReview
It Carries My Family. Isn't That What I Bought It For? — Not the fastest or most luxurious Minivan but it works for me. I wish I had the 2005 model with Stow-N-Go because it would be more usefull when it is time to haul things. But the dual sliding doors and power drivers set are nice. The vehicle is comfortable on long drives (4+ hours) and I've only had one mechanical issue with it (leaking steering column).
Pros: Not a high maintenance vehicle
Cons: Needs a better engine than the V6 as there a model out now with more HP *and* better gas mileage.

Best Minivan For The Dollar
The new 3.6 V6 has more power then a minivan ever needed, yet returns over 20mpg for us easy. On the highway we get well over 25, even as high as 30mpg if willing to go 65mph instead of 75. The van ha... Read More
