2003 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
This is a more-costly cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan. The Grand Caravan that we tested was pleasant enough to drive, with sound handling and a roomy interior, but it is falling behind the competition. It can't match the refinement or interior flexibility of the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, or Nissan Quest. The Grand Caravan rides well enough with a light load and handles securely.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Clifford P., IL (2003 Chrysler Town & Country)

"3L 6 cyl is responsive and gives reasonable mileage (up to 26 mpg in best case highway) but city driving drops to 18-19 mpg or so. Found the tires make all the difference in handling for this van. Michelin Premier or General Altimax have been the best handling tires I've used."
