1993 Chrysler Voyager 3.0 3.0 V6
Last Chrysler I'll ever buy.
At 68,000 miles, the transmission locked up, Chrysler replaced it for free under warranty. Now the transmission shifts really hard to second.
The head gaskets began to leak oil to exterior of engine at 45,000 miles.
Keep replacing engine mounts, a V6 transverse mounted engine seems to be too much horsepower.
Parts are very expensive, e.g. rubber bumpers...etc.
Radio works when it wants to.
Engine dies at intersections since vehicle was about 6 months old.
Power door locks and security alarm had to be disabled after 9 months. Power locks were replaced twice for free and then at $45.00 each once they lasted about two months.
Rear view mirror fell off twice since purchase. Approximately at two years and five years.
Advertised as "buy American" and comes equipped with 3.0 Mitsubishi's engine. Very disappointed at quality control department.
Chrysler knowingly sold these vehicles with less than transmissions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

There is a simple solution to your gearbox problem: have your garage drain some oil from it.
I've had the exact same problem after a second (!) gearbox change. It seems that if the oil level is just a bit to high it starts to malfunction...
I'm also wondering if your door-lock actuators are well adjusted. If you put to much stress on them they don't last long.
I have owned two of these baby's and find the engine the cars strongest point. It's practically flawless, (it should, made in Japan) unlike the real American 3.3 and 3.8 engine...

I bought one used in 1995 with 60K on it. It now has 165K on it and the only parts replaced other than normal wear (brakes, etc) has been one window control switch and one power steering pump.
My transmission had the lurching shifts, but I installed Amsoil synthetic fluid and the problem gradually went away over a month or so and is now just starting to come back. Time to change the fluid after nearly 90,000 miles!
The Mitsubishi engine is known among mechanics as a problem engine. The Chrysler 3.3 is just about bullet proof!

In response to the comment about the Mitsubishi 3.0L engine built in Japan. Yeah, they're real flawless alright. You can identify that engine with the large cloud of blue smoke trailing the vehicle it's stuck in. For reliability, go with the Chrysler 3.3L or 3.8L.
