#1519 of 1653 Used or New Minivan?
Jun 08, 2009 (6:14 pm)
Hi, I am a new member here.
I want to buy a minivan from chrysler/Dodge because of growing family size.
I have tow option:
I found a used 2002 town & country limited AWD with 56,000Miles.
It looks like brand new. Asked for $7600.
If I take it for $6800, is it a good deal?
Do I need to buy extended warranty? How much does it cost?
It seems chrysler/Dodge new minivans have a great discount now.
I only can buy the cheapest one because of budge.
What is the cheapest one and how about the price now?
Which one did I need to choose? I am in Chicago. Thanks a lot.

I suggest you stay away from the AWD model. Reliability of the AWD was not it's strong point. Plus the fuel mileage is lower. Given that you live in Chicago, FWD is sufficient; if you want added traction during the winter, I suggest you invest in a good set of 4 winter tires. Good luck.

Thanks a lot.
The used van is very impressed and I have bought it for $6800 .
What kind of maintenance should I pay attention to the AWD systems.

#1523 of 1653 Deal on an 08 T&C Limited
Jun 09, 2009 (3:28 pm)
I just bought a new 08 T&C Limited about 3 weeks ago from Anchorage Chrysler. Sticker was just under 43K. Even the options had options. Used Ed Smith and one other local dealer that had one identically equipped with just different seat color to prod them into a bidding war. I paid 29.9K plus $200 dealer fee. I think they made money, but not too much. I'm very happy with the vehicle so far and pleased with the price.

Not too exciting since it includes the $1,000 for current owners.
