2000 Plymouth Voyager 3.0 from North America
I will not buy a Chrysler/Dodge product again
Radiator leaked after 200 miles.
The seat vinyl on the driver side cracked very easy.
Replaced a computer engine chip at about 65,000 miles. This made the vehicle stay in a lower gear until it was fixed.
Replaced the transmission and the clutches at 86,000 miles. Cost me $1900.00 and the vehicle is not even paid off yet.
Battery died at 86,000 miles -4 years old.
The van looks nice.
The appealing thing was about purchasing this van was the 0% financing.
Chrysler is known for transmission problems. I was told when I bought this vehicle that these type of problems were fixed in 1999.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Some vans are built better than others. I have a 1992 Voyager with 196,000 miles on it which has been a very trouble-free car to own. A lot of it DOES have to do with maintenance, but everyone makes a lemon or two.
It is true though, that the best way to avoid a Chrysler 4-speed failure is by proactive maintenance. Fluid/filter changes every 20-30K miles is definitely a must.
I bought a 1999 Plymouth Voyager. I took incredibly good care of it--oil/filter changes every 3,000 miles, every service recommended by the dealer (15K, 30K, 45K, 60K) --and the transmission totally failed at 74,000 miles--just past the 70,000 mile warranty. Cost me $3,000 to repair/replace. I later learned this was incredibly common; a Canadian friend told me that in Canada, the courts required Chrysler/Plymouth to repair all transmissions up to 100,000 miles because of this constant failure. Today, a car dealer told me that this was required in the United states as of August 1, 2005. Too late for me--but I will NEVER buy another Chrysler/Plymouth product again!
