Summary:

A big dent in the pocket

Faults:

Driver's side door would not close correctly. The cruise control button sticks. The transmission is beginning to slip. The motor mounts have needed to be replaced twice. The lights on the inside work whenever they want. The horn sticks. The fuel gage doesn't work, so I have to guess when I need gas by my mileage.

General Comments:

I was delighted with this van at first, but very quickly fell out of love with it. It is very roomy and comfortable although the passenger's seat is not adjustable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This minivan stinks...period. It is a big money pit.

1993 Plymouth Voyager. I have had my van since 1995. It has 206K miles. Motor has been very reliable. Consistent gas mileage at 16 mpg (wished for better). Have had consistent transmission problems. Replaced one time ourselves, and probably had been replaced once before. We replaced it with a rebuilt, not a good idea. Spend a little more for a factory new with warranty. I love the way it drives, and how quiet it is. It tends to chew up tires too frequently.

Summary:

Unreliable

Faults:

The door latches broke in two places.

The automatic transmission stopped functioning at 100000 miles.

The air conditioner compressor is starting to go out.

General Comments:

The cost of having to have the transmission fixed brings back memories of owning a Honda Accord. It is costing me over 900 dollars to have the transmission fixed. This is outrageous and should not be needed with only 100000 miles on the car. I have read nothing but bad reviews about all Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth transmissions. I believe it's engineered into the vehicle for it to break down. I hate this piece of garbage. Plus to add insult to injury the tranny shop is slow at repairing the tranny.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

OK, you think a car with 100k miles shouldn't have problems? I have a 1989 Mercury Sable with only 57k miles and it has a bad transmission. Now THAT'S something to complain about.

It seems that the American cars made in the late 80s and early 90s that were bestsellers all have transmission problems. The Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable, Ford Aerostar and Windstar minivans, and ALL Chrysler products, especially the minivans. Was GM the only one that could get transmissions right at this point in time? They must have been, because their cars didn't sell as well. ;)
