Summary:

I will not buy a Chrysler/Dodge product again

Faults:

Radiator leaked after 200 miles.

The seat vinyl on the driver side cracked very easy.

Replaced a computer engine chip at about 65,000 miles. This made the vehicle stay in a lower gear until it was fixed.

Replaced the transmission and the clutches at 86,000 miles. Cost me $1900.00 and the vehicle is not even paid off yet.

Battery died at 86,000 miles -4 years old.

General Comments:

The van looks nice.

The appealing thing was about purchasing this van was the 0% financing.

Chrysler is known for transmission problems. I was told when I bought this vehicle that these type of problems were fixed in 1999.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Some vans are built better than others. I have a 1992 Voyager with 196,000 miles on it which has been a very trouble-free car to own. A lot of it DOES have to do with maintenance, but everyone makes a lemon or two.

It is true though, that the best way to avoid a Chrysler 4-speed failure is by proactive maintenance. Fluid/filter changes every 20-30K miles is definitely a must.

I bought a 1999 Plymouth Voyager. I took incredibly good care of it--oil/filter changes every 3,000 miles, every service recommended by the dealer (15K, 30K, 45K, 60K) --and the transmission totally failed at 74,000 miles--just past the 70,000 mile warranty. Cost me $3,000 to repair/replace. I later learned this was incredibly common; a Canadian friend told me that in Canada, the courts required Chrysler/Plymouth to repair all transmissions up to 100,000 miles because of this constant failure. Today, a car dealer told me that this was required in the United states as of August 1, 2005. Too late for me--but I will NEVER buy another Chrysler/Plymouth product again!

Summary:

A good value, IF you have a warranty!

Faults:

Master Cylinder replaced at 3,000 miles.

Valve cover replaced 3 times in 3 years.

Head gasket replaced at 40,000.

Wiper motor, switch, wiring, all replaced, yet wipers sometimes quit in delay mode.

4 sets of brake pads, 3 sets of rotors in 78,000 miles.

General Comments:

Despite all that went wrong with this van, we loved it. We had an extended warranty that covered all our repairs. It was great on gas (about 22 MPG), comfortable, and sporty-looking. We had dual sliding doors which made it feel like a sedan. The van never once stranded us. The problems really started mounting near 75,000 miles. It backfired, needed another whole set of brakes, and was leaking oil. The local dealers were the WORST possible people when it came to repairing our van. Even the simplest repairs took at least 2 days! As far as reliability and performance, though, this was the best van. We even would go as far as to say we regret letting it go.
