I am looking at buying a 2003 Town & Country, might I have trouble with the transmission ?

Asked by Nov 02, 2007 at 02:12 PM about the 2003 Chrysler Town & Country LXi AWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I am looking at buying this 2003 town & country that has 97,000 miles on it. It is in great shape but someone told me that the transmissions
in these cars only last about 80,000+ miles. Is this true? Are there any other factors I should consider before purchasing this car
with so many miles?

The transmissions in the Dodge Caravan/Chrysler T&C have come a LONG way from the early 1990's models, which were notable for transmission failures in <100,000 miles. I would say that it does have high miles -- average is 10,000-12,000 per year, so it should have about half that mileage for an '03. Check condition of trans fluid and if possible have trans checked for fluid pump output by a dealership you trust.

I have the 2001, so they may have made changes since then, but I got about 150k on mine before I had to replace the transmission. Mine gave me NO warning before going bad. One day it was shifting smoothly and perfectly, the next, it just quit. I pulled in to fill it up with gas and then I couldn't get it to move again. Very expensive to replace/repair.
