1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 3.3 from North America
Very disapointed with this Chrysler product
Replaced H-VAC unit.
Replaced water pump and tensioner.
Replaced A/C compressor (still did not fix problem)
Multiple engine failures (needed tows to mechanic)
Wipers turned on when signal in use (did not bother to fix)
All repairs and breakdowns occurred within in 6 months of owning vehicles, spent approx $6,000 in repairs, vehicle is currently for sale.
Bought the van for more space for the kids.
For the brief moments the van was running, it was great.
Too unreliable and expensive to keep running especially with the kids, both breakdowns occurred on snowy days with the kids in the car far from home.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Your problem with the wipers coming on when you put on the turn signal is a recall item which Chrysler will fix free of charge. You will also notice that the cruise control (if fitted) and the horn will also cease to work.
We had the same problem and it was all repaired gratis.

I have a 1998 Chrysler Caravan SE (short wheelbase) with 150,000 miles. Purchased it with 69,000 miles and it has performed like a champ. Always starts, burns no oil, runs smooth as silk. I have the 3.3 liter which runs and sounds like I just drove it off the showroom floor. It looks as good as it drives. New shocks, struts and tires. No rattles or squeaks. I did the tranny at 120,000 and it just went again. However, that is not Chrysler's fault (I will blame AAMOC0). In fact, I purchased another 1998 All Wheel Drive Town and Country. That tranny went as well at 75,000 (under warranty) Gonna take my T & C to 150,000. Gotta love those heated seats and great sounding stereo. These mini vans will go the distance with a little maintenance. Just look at how many older ones are still on the road.
