eBay If you need a reliable minivan at a great bargain, be sure check out this auction:
This 1999 Chrysler Town and Country was purchased after one owner as a Certified Vehicle in 2002 and has been in our family for the last 16 years. It has been well maintained and has no major mechanical issues. Although it has a few minor cosmetic issues which will be described below, it has never been in a significant accident.
Let's start by telling you the good: The engine and transmission have no known mechanical issues. The vehicle starts consistently, runs good/good pick-up, and the transmission shifts properly and does not slip.The vehicle has four almost new Michelin tires ( $600 worth - see photos) and rides smooth. I wouldn't have put these on if it was a clunker.The heat blows hot, the A/C blows cold.The leather seats are in great condition for a 19.5 year old vehicle. They are quite supple and there are no tears or significant damage, as can be seen in the photos.181,000 miles is actually pretty low mileage for this year. That means it has had less than 10K miles per year.This minivan is ready to go, needs no mechanical work to become your new transportation.Features:
3.8L V6 in good shapePower doors locks, power windows, power seats, and heated seats (we're going to miss those)Medium Gray Leather interiorThe exterior color is called Charcoal. It's not gray and it's not black... somewhere in-between.CD/Cassette/good sound systemRemovable seats in middle and backThe bad:The gas door is broken off (see photo). A new one is $50-75.The car bumper is cracked on the corner (See photo). (A new bumper is around $100 or less)The front plastic trim under the front grille is cracked.There are a few scratches, the worst of which is shown n the same photo as the gas door. All -in-all, not bad though for a car this age. (The paint others looks remarkably good for a car this age).The mirrors occasionally move when sitting overnight. It never happens when driving though.The front passenger window does not go down. Needs a new power window motor, or leave as-is as we have done for the last year.Summary:If you are looking for a perfect minivan from 1999, this isn't it. But if instead you want a mechanically reliable van that can be driven the day you get it, and minor/cosmetic issues that can be fixed later or lived with, then this is worth bidding on. It will likely be a great bargain. I can't recall seeing anyone else's van of this era in this good of condition.
