hey there, we have a 2000 Town & Country LX with 36k miles that we absolutely love. We were lucky enough to get the 16 inch chrome wheels on our LX as a "dealership option" when we bought it in September of 2000. As for pricing, you can get a much better deal on a 2002 (and especially a 2001, if you can find one) Town & Country LX than you could on any Odyssey, even the lowly LX model. If you are a good at dealing down the price you can get a Town & Country for thousands less than MSRP.
Also, Chrysler is still offering its 100,000 mile warranty if you have any concerns about the long-term reliability of a Town & Country...

According to CR Ody reliability is below average, yet dealers still ask above MSRP or add their own options to accomplish the same thing. At least with the DC van the repairs won't empty my bank account like the Honda repairs. How anyone can purchase an Ody above MSRP and then pay for an extended warranty brings their sanity into question IMO.

CR reliability was below average ONLY on the 99's... mostly due to sliding door issues. Also, it was the first model year of a totally redesigned Odyssey... there are bound to be kinks to be worked out and Honda has addressed many of them. How long did it take Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge to address/admit their issues?!?!? We paid below MSRP for our 2001 ODY EX and are looking forward to the FANTASTIC resale value Ody's have when it is time to buy a new one.

That can't be right, Motorweek is against the Odyssey and always favor American cars, and anyone of the other cry baby excuses we Odyssey owners had to put up with when Odyssey was getting all the awards.

also has the Lexus 430 the Best Sedan. Do people still want to argue about Chrysler the best minivan?

It appears Chrysler minivans come away with some awards, just as the Odyssey and other models have. However, when it comes to biased reviews of DC minivans from so called "honest" publications such as Edmunds, it's only right to challenge as well as question their verdict of what truly is "the best minivan." After putting up with Edmunds biased and innacurate reviews of DC products, I don't put much faith in anything they say anymore...
