Piece of Junk

Review

Has anyone else on here had transmission problems with...yet another...Chrysler product? Every Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth, or Jeep between 1989 and 2000 that we know of has needed one. Needless to say, this van is pure JUNK. Bought it brand new for my family. Nothing but issues. An engine($2400), transmission $1800), 4 air conditioning compressors $1200 each), and thousands of dollars of mechanical repairs later, we still sold it half-dead at 138,000K with no air, and it backfired on the highway. Maintenance always done at dealer. Buy that extended warranty on Chrysler...you'll need it. If you want to stay away from engine and transmission repairs, stay away from Chrysler. Invest in a Toyota!

Sorry your van almost burned to a crisp

Review

Good soldier of a car, keeps running with basic maintenance and some backyard fixing from time to time. BUT, recently the fuel rail started leaking raw gasoline, which filled the little moat around the valve cover, which promptly started on fire burning like a 3.3 liter tiki torch. One fire extinguisher (thanks, Burger King) and $600 in fuel rail and melted wire repair later, Chrysler says "Oh well, sorry. Can't help you." But wait-the fuel rail leaking was a known recall! Tough darts, you should have fixed it before now. Oh well.

watch out after 150,000 mi

Review

When we bought this vehicle, the previous owner put on a conversion top. Big plus for us. We loved this van until it hit the 150,000 mi. Then things started going wrong, Replaced the motor, then 2 transm, brakes and things have just been happening with it. Can't trust it out away from home now. So were stuck at home. It was an excellent van till it started falling apart. Drive was nice. Can't afford anything else with an unemployed family.

Generally good with flaws

Review

Generally a good vehicle but with some quality problems. Interior is spacious but plastic items such as glove box is flimsy and prone to breaking. "Phantom wiper" problem occurs occasionally even though control box was replaced with new one. Parts are expensive also. Engine has good power and passing on hills is no problem. Spark plugs in the back are a real pain to get to. Overall workmanship is not on par with Japanese minivans, sorry to say.

This thing is a tank!

Review

This van has been through 4 accidents and is still going strong! We got this van with 157,000 miles on it and is has been one of the best vehicles we have ever owned. It has been three teens first car (to their dismay!) so that show its tuff, plus it being a van, has cheap insurance premiums. It has adequate power and believe it or not, it can be kind of fun to drive! Take the two back seats out and we've used it as a truck!

10 years and running well

Review

I have driven this car for 10 years-shuttling kids to games, stuffing it with people and gear for long distance trips, and doing the local errands. I'm about to downsize (no more kids at home!) and am surprised that smaller cars do not offer the level of comfort of the minivan. This car has a smooth ride, great seating and vision. Good vehicle for teaching teens to drive. There are tons of places to store stuff. No reliability issues other than usual wear and tear.

More Reliable Than You Think

Review

I have driven this van to 151,000 miles. It has moved my entire house across country 3 times. I have not put more than regular maintenance dollars until I hit 138,000 miles. Then it was leaks for cracking tubes, water pump, main computer. Overall expected for a 9 year old car with 151,000 miles. It still looks great, is extremely comfortable & gets all the jobs done. It is like a truck for my family. This van gets a bad rap. I am buying a new Town & Country, but seriously looked at the Honda Odyssey. On paper the engine looks better, it rides a little smoother, but the power is just the same. The Chrysler blows Odyssey away in space & interior. I have proven reliability, it is proven winner.

Won't buy another American made Van!

Review

The vehicle had very few problems the 1st 5 yrs. After the 5th yr, it's been 1 thing after another. This year, so far, it's been $1700 a/c, and now the power steering pump and rack, $1000- $1100. Prior years, Altanator, water pump, starter, brakes. etc.

Good performance for a Plymouth van

Review

This '97 Plymouth van has been one of the best cars I've ever owned: reliable, good mileage, cruise all day at 70, plenty of room for kids and junk. I was told recently that it has a Mitsubishi engine, so that may explain part of its overall excellence. This van was my THIRD Plymouth van and I would buy another -- if only Chrysler still made them!

Good van for the price

So far so good. I wish the mileage was better. It’s a comfortable and quite vehicle. And it’s so practical. I wish it was a bit more sporty.
