Summary:

Faults:

Nothing so far, it has been great!

General Comments:

I love this car. It is easy to drive, fairly fast, quiet and refined.

For a seven seater car it really does go well. It will sit at 110mph all day long with ease if you wanted it too.

The cruise control I find makes for very relaxing motorway journeys; just sit back and watch the miles clocking up.

I would say that it is fairly heavy on fuel around town, but on motorway journeys it is very good if you stay between 70 - 80mph.

I own the short wheel base version, and I would say that the boot is quite small for such a big car; however the rear bench seat folds easily to allow for large items.

To sum it up, Would I buy another one?

Well yes I would, but I would go for a Grand Voyager, just for the extra boot space.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

UPDATE: 15th April 2009.

I have since writing my review traded my Voyager in for a Renault Espace 2.0.

I have only just bought the Espace, but I'm missing the Chrysler's power to be honest, Also the build quality also doesn't seem to be as good on the Renault.

Will see how I get on over the next few months, but I can see me buying another Voyager in the near future.

Summary:

Pile of junk

Faults:

Gearbox failed.

Clutch was just about worn out.

Rear brake cylinders failed.

Track rod end failed.

Air venting system failed.

Air con failed.

Exhaust failed.

The electrics had a mind of their own, especially the wipers.

The steering column had a strange clonk, along with the front suspension.

The passenger side leather seat split.

General Comments:

I would not expect to have these problems at such a low mileage with a full dealer service history.

These cars are NOT quality cars.

Do not buy one of these vehicles

Chrysler should not be allowed to sell such bad quality vehicles.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My wife has a 1997 Chrysler Grand Voyager R registration UK, it has done 60,000 and the gearbox has failed also the air conditioning compressor has failed. Chrysler seem to think this is reasonable for a car with 60,000 on the clock - I do not.

I have a 1997 Chrysler Voyager with 96000 Km on clock and the gearbox has failed, this is not what I would expect from a modern car. Chrysler have just lost a customer, no more Chrysler for me.
