1997 Plymouth Voyager SE 3.0L 6 cylinder from North America
A high-maintenance long term headache
It needed a complete transmission rebuild at 85000km costing $2000 (CAD).
Brake issues: Multiple break noise issues, pads replaced more than usual, rear brake cylinders replaced at 145k.
Air conditioning: freon has a slow leak so had to recharge it every 2 years.
Clock spring (controls horn, airbag, cruise control) faulty so repaired it at local mechanic and then Chrysler repaid my costs once recall was issued and I claimed my expenses. This is the one nice experience I have had with Chrysler.
Wipers come on intermittently with no pattern.
Speedometer while under cruise control just drops to 0 while on the highway and then comes back after a few seconds. Makes you wonder about the electrical system.
Strange looking nuts and bolts have been found under the car which is worrisome.
The interior kept in shape and generally very comfortable for short trips and lots of space.
It never left us stranded, but sure emptied my wallet with $200-400 typical invoices at the mechanic.
Generally this thing is a total lemon and I will never buy a Chrysler again. The resale value is so low it's the final insult after spending so much to keep it alive.
I am going back to Honda - at least it keeps its value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
