2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser - GT
Advice: make sure all the bugs are worked outBought a New 2003 GT have had nothing but problems, I love the looks of the car,and the driving, its a nice car if you don't have problems, door window had to be replaced, seat belt light and sound comes on when ever it wants and this is still happening and chrysler said maybe March before they can solve the problem. We liked our 2001 PT so well we bought a new 2003. Its a great car its chrysler that are the villians.
2003 Chrysler Town and Country - Limited AWD
Pros: Stereo System
Cons: Front pax seat CANNOT be moved up or down.
Advice: Compare to other vans. . .this car has been downgraded.Your editor completely missed the boat on the T&C limited for 2003. . .a little real research would have helped. The suspension and stearing has been changed resulting in a noticeably harsher ride, car now comes with a lower grade tire, antenna not painted, mirrors no longer painted to match main color, passenger mirror no longer memory, rugs no longer plush, door post air outlets removed, single option aft seat now, front passenger seat CANNOT be moved up or down. . . and more if a person cares to LOOK. I can just imagine the things that were changed that we cannot see?????? I will not buy another T&C van. Phil Shadle//Solebury, PA.

Advice: take itgreat
2003 Chrysler Town and Country - LXi FWD
Pros: Overall look of the vehicle.
Cons: Quality very poor.
Advice: Lease one for the warranty period and get rid of it or get an Odyssey and be happy long term.I was a two tome Chrysler Town and Country LXI owner. Loved the vehicles I had owned but due to a major problems I encountered with the 1998 I had (multiple a/c failures, bearing going out, cruise ctrl going out) I had within 50k mlies of ownership I elected not to purchase another one. Great to look at but not dependable at all. Final straw was made after contacting Chrysler Corporate and being told to take a hike on the issues.What a company policy huh? No thanks! As a result just purchased an Honda Odyssey and love it.
2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser - Touring

2002 Chrysler Voyager - Base
Pros: Sliding middle doors on both sides.
Cons: No CD player on radio, only tape player.
Advice: Large family would want extended van.The ride is smooth and quiet. Steering handles very well and the V6 has good get up and go. Have taken two long trips and the comfort level was great. Not real pleased with gas mileage, 19-20 mpg highway, 15-16 in town. All our children are grown and gone so the short version is just right for the wife and myself. Do like the 7-year warranty and expect to keep this vehicle for several years.
2003 Chrysler Town and Country - LX FWD
Pros: Larger size, and standard equipment. PRICE
Cons: shifter blocks volume control on the radio
Advice: Do research on-line and find a dealer that will give you an invoice deal. get the rear heat/ACNice pick-up, even on the 3.3L version. Pleanty of room for the kids and groceries. I did not pursue a lot of the options, many common options are standard even on the LX model (keyless entry, power windows & locks, and AC). Only thing I would change about the purchase is I would have got the rear heat/AC.
