Summary:

Best cheap family vehicle ever as long as you don't have to replace the engine

Faults:

Rear head warped at around 175000 miles and scored the piston chambers. Had to rebuild engine and new heads, 2700$

A/C leaked, then after we fixed it the desiccant pack in the accumulator burst and clogged the lines. After a new accumulator and evaporator another leak.

Transmission went out at about 189000 miles. 2000$ rebuild.

Rear sliding door lock never worked.

Radiator Fan broke, unable to remove motor from blade housing and wound up having to put an after market fan on. The largest one that would fit would not cool enough to keep from over heating in traffic.

General Comments:

More room than any other vehicle in its price range.

More versatility than an SUV or a truck, and more seats than a car. I frequently used it to carry 5X8 foot sheets of wood and dry wall, moved three times in four years.

Able to change seating configurations or take them out all together.

Set the cruise and head down the road. Even with four adults and two kids and all our stuff for a weekend the ride was smooth and easy.

The driver seat had six way electric seating adjustments and made for one of the most comfortable driving cars ever.

An Infinity six way stereo came standard and was awesome. 6.5's in the front doors with three way 6X9's in back hatch door. The only weak spot was the little speakers in the dash board. But the volume was loud and clear.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sounds like you struck bad luck. Engine and transmission rebuilds are not uncommon with van or car with such mileage. Maintenance from day one makes all the difference.

Hope this is helpful.

We have a 1991 plymouth grand voyager in which we've replaced the air conditioning, the tensioner, and the fuel pump. We love the van its 13 yrs old. The only thing that I need to get checked is the ABS, this light comes on only when you start up the vehicle then it goes off. Any suggestions on the ABS system, I understand this van was on a recall from the dealer for the ABS System.

It is only normal for the ABS light to go on then out @startup, all cars w/ABS do this just to let you know they have it. It's when it stays on that you should worry.
