Summary:

It's the best car I've owned since my VW Squareback in 1973

Faults:

The front rotors gave and uneven, jerky stop when I got the van. The rotors were replaced.

I am used to doing common service on my vehicles; oil change, oil filter, air filter and plugs. The oil filter is tough to reach when not on a hoist; replacing the air filter is challenging at best.

The curvature of the rear window is greater than the wiper can sweep. The upper part is always missed.

General Comments:

My cars are always purchased used, nicely broken in at 80K miles. This Plymouth Voyager exceeds what I might have expected. I was amazed at the economy of operation. I just returned from a 2700 mile trip, almost all freeway driving at a steady 60-65.

I'm not a jackrabbit when I drive. Maybe that's why I got an honest 32.2 mpg on the trip.

General Comments:

This van has been great. Reliable, comfortable and dependable. Does not ride like a van.

The only complaint is gas mileage, it is not as economical as I thought it would be.

For better gas mileage, change spark plugs & wires often.

Summary:

Good minivan

Faults:

Suspension.

Air conditioning belt/bracket.

Main problem is the transmission on highway, it feels like the transmission does not know if it should be on overdrive or 3th, really strange, the dealer doesn't know what`s wrong with the vehicle.

General Comments:

This vehicle needs more power.

Summary:

Perfect for people with kids

Faults:

We have had no major problems. The air conditioner belt has broke twice in two days. And the air compressor is about to go out. But the dealer is replacing it at no charge.

General Comments:

I really like the van. It has plenty of space and is great when you have kids. The storage space in the back is big enough if traveling, for luggage or anything else.

Summary:

I've owned an earlier model of a Voyager and had many less problems

Faults:

Numerous electrical problems. Fortunately they occurred while still under warranty.

Problems with the ignition cylinder intermittently not recognizing the key. Just out of warranty, the ignition cylinder is completely non functional.

General Comments:

I doubt I'm the only one who has had this problem.

The only electrical problem that I had on my 98 Voyager was the radio. At 72,000, I started to leak a lot of oil near the rear main seal. The only connection to this that I can possibly make is that I did an oil change with synthetic oil... go figure this one out. Overall I would rate mine at a 6 only because I should have gone with the bigger engine. I have a 2.8 and it bogs down with 4 adults on the highway.
