The Plymouth Grand Voyager is great. I own a 1990 model, and it has been nothing but great to me. Especially the nitrous oxide in it. When I race these young'ns with their sports cars, I blow them away in my mini-van.

I have a 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 3.3 liter. It has been by far the best van I have ever owned. I bought it 2.5 years ago with 225,000 kilometers on it. It now has 310,000 kilometers.
I have painted it and replaced the original transmission at 300,000 km. I have also replaced an egr valve. The A/C has never worked since I have owned it.
All in all a nice riding van with lots of room. We even drove it to Florida and back (5,000 km) with this kind of high mileage on it.

I have a 1992 Plymouth Voyager. It was previously my parents' car and they owned it since new. It's got 173,000 miles on it and it's still running strong. It burns a little oil- about a quart every 1700 miles. This started very abruptly and has not increased in amount since it started so I believe this is related to a common valve problem with the 3.0L engine around 170k.
The amount of original equipment on this car is amazing. The transmission was rebuilt around 145k. The oxygen sensor has been replaced twice, once at 77k and the other at 170k. The A/C had a leak in it once, which was repaired under warranty. It's been blowing cold ever since.
I also own a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am which hasn't been nearly as reliable (see: "It's never had a problem that's left me stranded, but a $$$ eater" under the Grand Am section if you're interested) for me. I will use the Grand Am since the 4 cylinder in that car is much better for gas mileage, but the Voyager will be the car I use around town, for road trips, and for commuting when the Grand Am has it's once a month breakdown.

The leaking on the drivers side may be associated with A/C use, if this is the case, there is an A/C drain on the bulkhead that gets blocked each season on my '97. I reach in with my finger, wiggle a little, and lots of water comes gushing out, within a few days the carpet is dry!!
Overall my Grand Voyager has been great, 135,000 miles, just now having EGR valve replaced.

I have had my 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE for over 2 years now, and have rebuilt the transmission at 143,000 miles due to past owners not fixing a leak and running it low on fluid.
New radiator at 150,000 miles due to a small leak. Other than that, just a alignment and oil changes. These are great dependable vans, you just have to maintain them like any car. Oh yeah, it leaks about a quart between oil changes, not a big deal for having 152,000 miles and climbing!

I own a 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 3.0 L engine and it has 179,000 miles on it. I bought it used at 125,000miles and it has been a very reliable vehicle for us. I have had to replace the timing belt at 178,000 miles along with the water pump and it continues to run really good. I do the oil changes and add Lucas oil to keep the pistons well lubricated. I also replaced the headliner a week ago. Pretty decent car, but wouldn't want to get another one. I would probably get a Honda Pilot or the Toyota Sienna for my next vehicle purchase.

This is for the man who found a water leak in front right side. I had that problem with a pickup truck I had. The little radiator for the heating system with a plastic or metal cover over it is mounted on the firewall. As regular radiators and HOSES do leak on occasion you just need to change this unit. DUI for under $45 I should think.. To locate it open hood and look for the 2 hoses that go thru firewall. Might be a bit difficult on some cars. remove hoses and plug them. tie them UP with wire so they won't lose coolant. Remove cover from under dash and remove small radiator and replace. Close up and leak will be gone.

I own a 1993 Plymouth Grand Voyager. It has 199,300 miles on it today. It had a lot of problems prior to when I bought it at 55,000 miles as the previous owner gave me the car's history. After I bought it, within a week the transmission broke down and I had to get it replaced under extended warranty at the dealership.
It had other some other problems that my extended warranty took care of before 70,000 miles, e.g. the AIG motor (?) broke down.
The 2nd transmission was replaced again after another 104,000 miles but this seems normal.
The car burns some oil, about 1 quart in 1,500 miles.
There are a few little things that don't work now due to age, nothing major.
At about 160,000 miles the Check Engine light came on from time to time and I would break down on the road, the dealerships couldn't figure it out, eventually I diagnosed it and changed out the thermostat and the light will now come on maybe a few times a year (I drive about 13,000 miles a year) due to a different problem, but when it dies the engine code is absent so I can just restart the engine and give it gas and it drives off again. I still don't know what that problem is and the light usually comes on when I am driving slowly or stopped, within the first few miles.
After the 70,000 break in period the minivan has been reliable and from time to time I take it on long distance trips, 1000+ miles round trip.
It is really a comfortable and fun car to drive in and I plan keep driving it. I have a hard time parting with it after driving it for 13 years.

I have a 1992 plymouth grand voyager; it was my parent's vehicle (purchased new) ; I now have 209,000 miles on this vehicle and the transmission has now started to yield problems - don't know if this can be fixed. Although this is a large van (I have 2 kids) it has been wonderful for traveling. I guess after 17 years, this vehicle has been a good one. I hope it can be repaired without a lot of cost, but knowing today's rising prices, the repair costs might be more than what the vehicle is worth. Here's to the "old hoopties!"
