1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 3.0 from North America


This van has been very reliable transportation, and maintenance has been routine


AT 146,000 miles we replaced the transmission.

The cruise control went out at 120,000 miles.

Brake lines were replaced at 134,000 miles.

The back shocks were replaced at 146,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car has performed wonderfully and has been on at least 5 - 2500 miles trips. It is comfortable and handles very on long or short trips.

We are on our third set of tires and replaced the struts and back shocks.

The fuel filter, fuel pump, brakes, drive axles, front suspension system, ball joints have been replaced.

The body has no rust on it and the interior is in great condition.

It was our primary vehicle for 7 years, but now it is our utility vehicle.

We plan on keeping the van for many, many years.

Good value, lots of room,


AT 59km the transmission went, since this was one Km under the warranty, the dealer replaced the transmission and computer.

The belt tensioner went at 60k and at 120k, but never after that.

Clockspring went at 250k, replaced free by dealer, dealer has always been good to me as car always serviced at dealer.

General Comments:

Believe it or not, no leaks and no oil use even at 260k (160k miles)

Wife drives car, every day, we have replaced the normal brakes, etc, but nothing special.

The car handles like a van, and should not be driven to hard around corners, but on the interstate cruises at 75 mph very well, even with the high mileage.

I do change the oil every 5000k (3000mi).

The most wonderful vehicle I've ever owned


Nothing has needed servicing on this van. It works perfectly and hasn't needed work since I bought it.

General Comments:

This is an incredible vehicle! I LOVE my voyager. The ride is smooth and car-like, it's actually easier to steer than my 2000 Cirrus and has a smoother running engine (V6 versus S4), and the look of the van is amazing. My friends and family are very impressed.

I test drove and researched many other minivans before I bought this and found the Mazda to be great, but too small (and some models are underpowered), the fords drive like big trucks and have sloppy handling and typically ford-like cheesy plastic interior parts, and the Chevy products seemed good, but I didn't like the look one bit (same with the Pontiac models).

This is one sexy minivan, if there is such a thing, and has carried 6 large grown adults with no problems at all for me on long drives.

I love this car for comfort and reliability


I purchased this car as previously owned it was in great shape and I have been driving it now for about 4 years. I have about 120,000 miles on it now and it still shows no major signs of wearing out except that the 'service engine' light has been on for several months now and nobody can find why. The car runs great and I have had no major problems with it at all. Just recently I have noticed that the transmission has begun to slip once in a while, but I think it's because I drive it a little hard due to the amount of power it has at take off and I have never had the transmission tuned. That's not bad for being almost 8 years old.

General Comments:

I love the convenience of the dual rear doors and the over all comfort inside.

The powerful take off for getting on the freeway.

The gas mileage is great for a car this size.

I will definitely be a repeat buyer.

Your Transmission slip isn't because you drive it hard, it is because your trans will go soon. Every Grand Caravan/Voyager has had atleast one trans go bad. Go have it checked out, but that is probably what will happen soon. My mom has had to put one trans in hers, a former teacher had to put 2 and needed a third when she sold it, and someone I was going to a truck off of, said they had already put two in. Also, check out other Grand Caravan's/Voyager's comments, you will see that trans is a common problem on these vans.

My mom finally parked it, and now she has a Toyota Previa with 266,000 miles. One year older that her Caravan, and it is worth three times as much.
