1991 Plymouth Voyager from North America


Good buy if you only want 100,000 vehicle


Transmission faulty.

Head gasket at 100,000.

General Comments:

When we purchased our van it was a one owner vehicle with 40,000 miles. It was a very reliable vehicle and only had to spend money on minor maintenance. The problems started at around 90,000 miles when the transmission started to act up. The van shifted hard from 1st to 2nd gear. The air conditioning gave out around the same time. At around 100,000 miles the head gasket blew and we opted to not fix the van, because the cost of repair outpaced the value of the vehicle. I liked the van very much. It drove well in the snow and never had any problems otherwise. Very disappointed though that we only got 100,000 miles out of it.

You never mentioned doing any routine maintenance to it. When you buy a used car, you have no idea how it was treated. Buying a used car can be a great deal, but you want to get all the fluids changed, and make sure that you're caught up on all the maintenance.

If you never changed, or even checked, the engine coolant, that would explain why you blew your head gasket. Honestly, how many times did you ever open the hood to check your fluids?

It continues to amaze me how people always blame the car, and never their own lack of knowledge about how to take care of a car.

If you can find one that isn't riddled with problems, jump on it!


The transmission has a major problem that came around suddenly.

General Comments:

We were given the van and are having trouble getting a title.

We spent $900.00 putting new Goodyear tires all around, new struts on front, new shocks on rear, spring helpers on front & rear, and rebuilding the front end - all bearings and bushings are new.

We got watery gas and had to replace the fuel pump - $180 did the work ourselves.

The only problem we are having that wasn't a problem when we received it is that we were doing our Saturday drive and stopped for about 15 minutes at a yard sale. When we got back into the van, we had only high gear and reverse. Best case scenario is that it is a speed sensor - $50. Worse case scenario is that it is going to need a total rebuild - about $1400.00.

And we thought we were getting a good deal.

The van rides so good and I am a large lady. It has so much room. We will fix it!

The engine runs very well and holds excellent oil pressure.

I love my 91 Grand Voyager AWD. Just turned 247,000 miles and I'd jump in it any time and drive anywhere! We found it on a dealer's "back lot" and they were getting ready to wholesale it out, due to the infamous transmission problems, which we knew nothing about at the time. When we first had problems and started doing the very-belated research, we thought "OH NO!" Luckily that time it turned out to be just a $20 wiring fix. We did eventually have to put a transmission in... but we think the key was finding a good mechanic familiar with that vehicle. I get fairly good gas mileage, depending on how I watch the RPMs--but it is comfortable, drives like new and I love the ol' gal! Guess we got a good one.

They are not worth the money


Air conditioning never worked properly even after being worked on 5 times.

Rear door latch was recalled.

Rear shocks on the rear hatch were recalled.

Transmission never worked properly from day one. Rebuilt twice within 50,000 miles. Costly transmission.

Too many electrical problems. Mostly on the transmission. 604 Transmissions: Beware!

Everything is computerized.

Speedometer worked intermittently when it wanted too.

Paint peels off rapidly.

Good family car if you have money to spend


Was a great family car, but had too many problems.

Purchased in 1991 for ALL WHEEL DRIVE. Had only owned our first Caravan for a year and were not aware of problems that come with these cars.

General Comments:

ALL WHEEL DRIVE option was very nice. However, the transmission had problems from day one, refused to shift into second, had the transmission serviced for this problem more than once. Transmission finally went at 124,000 miles. I have been told we are lucky it lasted past 60,000.

I also had a shifting to second problem. After replacing the transmission the thermostat was replaced and corrected the problem. Seems that the transmission has to be a certain temp in order to work properly.

I also had a Caravan all wheel drive. They are in fact an all wheel drive model, you would know this if you ever drove the van in the snow.
