This is the basic model (Base), and I bought it new in February 2000. It has a large 4-cylinder engine,
which allows for pleasantly surprising acceleration, yet 22 miles-per-gallon performance over all.
However, I did have to pay to add cruise control and a roof rack.
It does have an automatic transmission, which I also prefer.Everything else is manual (windows, door locks, etc.), but that is what I prefer.
Aside from what I mentioned in suggested improvements, performance and function have been reliable and pleasing. At 70k miles, the brake pads have had to be replaced once and as well as the battery (at 10 years). I do try to keep it serviced regularly with 5 quarts of synthetic oil.

We purchased two used Chryslers during the same year. The 3.0 without 4 speed - overdrive got worse mileage than the 3.3 with overdrive in all conditions. The 3.0 never gets out of second gear until reaching 40 MPH. So, driving in the city is not efficient. The 3.3 has LOTS of power and gets 16-city and 23.5 HWY. Now, I am always looking for a low mileage V6 Caravan or Chrysler van but MUST HAVE 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION. I do not like the newer 09-10 ones with the lower front suspension.

Bought new in Mar 2000. I own the base 2.4 L auto with no options. I have never done less than 20 mpg. Average 24 and have don 29 mpg on highway. It's simple, do a service on the auto tans every 30k miles. Do Not shift abusive, use the trans. gently. Also, that's how to maximize the MPG. I live in the very congested SF Bay area and still achieve these real MPG as stated. This is not an exciting vehicle to drive. But when I realize that I've not even replaced the orig battery, that the orig tires went to 65K miles, and not a single light bulb has even been replaced. How can a vehicle be more reliable than that? It did have a rear brake job and all sched maint. done on-time. A++ van!
With Plymouth's impending death, the Voyager turns into a Chrysler this year, but it is otherwise unchanged. Four new colors and a new Value-Plus option package that includes a V6 and power features are new this year.
