1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 3.3L from North America
A loser. I'll never buy another Chrysler minivan.
The clockspring in the steering column went bad, resulting in the loss of tail lights, turn signals, and cruise control. Chrysler told me that this problems was a recall item for vehicles built up until Feb. 1998, but that it ought not to be a problem for others in that year. Mine was built after February, therefore they would not pay to have it fixed, even though my minivan shared the same problems as the others.
Even more frustrating, whenever the van is driven in any amount of standing water (even at speeds under 10 mph) the serpentine belt comes off. This has happened about five times. I called Chrysler and asked them to pay for the repair and they said they will only pay for recalls. When I asked them why they do not recall this one they said that they usually only recall when a problem poses a hazard. Losing power steering on the highway is not a safety hazard?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I've had same issue driving through standing water: serpentine belt comes off. Replaced several belts finally had to replace belt tensioner when original stuck.
Brakes are a constant problem. I have to replace pads all the time. I've had three complete brake jobs and it still gives me issues at 90k miles.
Replaced the transmission, too, at 70k.
I have problems with flashing lights on dash controls, taillight goes out, airbag light and ABS light erratic.
I had problems with key not turning in ignition.
But...it's paid for.
