2000 Chrysler Town & Country Review

Want luxury but need a minivan? This is your ride.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2000 Chrysler Town & Country serves as a luxurious minivan that made for both the town and the country. Seating for up to seven people covers the large family aspect, while luxury standard features and several models to choose from make this van similar to an upscale town car.

The Range

Body Styles: five-door van
Engines: 3.3-liter V-6, 3.8-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Chrysler Town & Country LX, Chrysler Town & Country LXi, Chrysler Town & Country Limited

What's New

This year consumers can tell the difference between the LX and the LXi due to a ton of exterior and interior changes. Five new colors debut: shale green, bright white, patriot blue, bright silver, and inferno red. The short wheelbase model leaves the lineup and both front and all-wheel drive remain available for the 2000 model year.

Exterior

The LX has a bevy of standard features, starting with quad headlamps and a monochromatic exterior. Fog lights, power heated mirrors, power brakes, a rear window defroster, sunscreen glass, 15-inch wheels, intermittent windshield wipers, and a rear window wiper all come standard. Opt for alloy wheels, a camper/towing package, a heavy-duty suspension, a keyless entry system, a lighted entry system, and a roof rack. Choose from six colors: bright silver metallic clearcoat, bright white clearcoat, deep slate pearlcoat, inferno red tinted pearlcoat, patriot blue pearlcoat, and shale green metallic. Try out chrome 16-inch wheels on the Limited.

The 2000 Chrysler Town & Country LX measures 76.8 inches wide, 68.7 inches high, 199.7 inches long, and clears the ground by 5.4 inches. It has a wheelbase of 119.3 inches and reaches a curb weight of 4045 pounds.

Interior

The LX boasts quad seating, wood grain trim, and dual-zone air-conditioning. The Limited goes a step further with heated seats, distinctive badging, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls, floor mats with a logo, a rear bench seat with a center armrest, and suede accents and trim panels. Both models of the 2000 Chrysler Town & Country get an integrated reclining child seat built into the mid-row Quad Command bucket seat. Other interior features on the base LX include a sliding driver’s side door, a power driver’s seat, cloth seating with two colors to choose from, and a trip computer.

Buyers can upgrade to a garage door opener, two child seats, front and rear air-conditioning, a rear heater, and an Infinity audio system.

The roomy Town & Country gives passengers 67.8 inches of rear hip room, 40 inches of rear headroom, 37.2 inches of rear legroom, and 64.1 inches of rear shoulder room.

Performance & Handling

Only the front -drive models get a four-wheel anti-lock brake system with discs and drums, while the all-wheel-drive versions have ABS and discs at all corners. The LXi features low-speed traction control and the Limited gets it standard, but only for the front-drive minivans.

Self-level suspension and heavy duty suspension are upgrades in the LX model.

Safety

Buyers feel safe in the 2000 Chrysler Town & Country with a standard four-wheel anti-lock brake system, driver and passenger front airbags, and fog lights.

NHTSA crash test results rate passenger and driver safety with four out of five stars. Side-impact rear collisions only receive three out of five stars; however, side-impact front collisions earn five out of five stars. The IIHS gives it a “Marginal? rating in frontal-offset tests.

Identifix finds that the transmission turbine speed sensor and the output shaft speed sensor occasionally fail during testing. The Instrument cluster printed circuit board occasionally fails as well.
