1991 Plymouth Grand Voyager LE 3.3L V6 from North America
Worst experience ever!!! Avoid at all costs!!!!
This van is the worst example of American engineering and is a complete disgrace to the automotive industry...
Rebuilt Transmission in 1995: only 68,000 miles!!
New Transmission in 1998:
Rebuilt the new transmission in 1999:
New Transmission in 2001:
Rebuilt transmission in 2003:
Spark Plugs need replaced every few years, NOT NORMAL!!
Every single interior AND exterior piece is falling off or has already fallen off. This includes:
Dash buttons and switches.
Door Handles falling off.
Roof falling down in the interior.
Various check engine lights and warning sounds which go off and mean absolutely nothing...
Everything rattles and makes TONS of noise!!
Hubcaps NEVER stay on!!
Exterior paint is peeling off all over the body.
The exterior wooden trim is peeling off in huge sections... it looks horrible!!
Bumpers are both cracked from old age.
Various "Plymouth" and "Voyager" exterior emblems have all fallen off...
Leaking gas tank...
Leaking engine oil and tranny fluid...
AC NEVER worked!!
This model Voyager looks and drives like a deathtrap. And-this model goes all the way up until 1995. So avoid ALL of those years!! These defects have to be cheap design and engineering problems from Chrysler, because I take obsessive care of all my vehicles.
This Voyager has been nothing, but a headache and complete nightmare. I just basically gave up on this thing and when it blows up and dies... that will be the end!!
AVOID CHRYSLER VANS AT ALL COSTS!!
They may be popular, but they are poorly designed and use cheap parts, so don't expect to get what you are paying for!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Actually, a lot of those transmission problems were caused by putting in incorrect tranny fluid. Go look it up...
I have a 1991 Plymouth Grand Voyager with 192,000 miles on it. Transmission was rebuilt at 128,000 miles. Tune-ups, oil changes and a few sets of tires and it's still in pretty good shape. Paint was never great on Chrysler vehicles, but with frequent washings and wax the paint still looks good.
Interior is in good condition, with just a few minor problems with plastic parts, but not unacceptable for a 1991 model in 2006.
Seems to me that many folks did not wash and wax these vehicles, since I've never seen paint oxidize, turn dull and peel off a vehicle when it's been properly cared for very often. I'm sure it happens, but not on every vehicle produced.
All things considered, this isn't the best mini-van ever, but there are still a large number of them on the road.
Would I invest thousands in this van at this point? Probably not, but so far it's not been a money pit, so I'll keep driving it.
My experience with the Grand Voyager was excellent. The only repairs I had in 140K miles (1991 - 1999) were brakes, batteries and serpentine belt. Never had a major repair of any kind. The trans got stuck in 2nd twice, but turn off the vehicle and it reset both times. I would say that the reliability exceeded all expectations.
