Review of the 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy inside but easy to park. Optional ABS. Low price.

  • Cons

    Not the most reliable vehicle on the road.

  • What's New for 1998

    Plymouth adds an Expresso trim level; intended to offer both style and value, this van has body-color door handles and silver exterior accents, and comes with privacy glass, keyless entry and a CD player. In other news, all Grand Voyagers get depowered, next-generation front airbags, adjustable front head restraints and new seat fabric. The four-speed automatic transmission receives upgrades for durability, and it can now be paired with the 3.0-liter V6 (which is LEV-certified in California). Other minor changes include an easy-entry feature for the left-hand captain's chair (in the second row) on vans with the left-hand sliding door, revised built-in booster seats and grocery bag hooks on the rear seat backs.

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 4dr Minivan

Worst car I ever owner(Ford Taurus a close second)I purchased this van new and have always taken it back for service every 3000 mi and did what ever the maintenance called for.Needless to say I have had constant problems from day one with this van.It has been towed more times than I want to remember.Over the years I have just about replaced everything-transmission,starter, generator, steering column,ignition switch 2x,AC parts,wheel cylinders, sway bushings 4x,computer module parts,radiator,gaskets..+++++ Everytime it was repaired I thought that would be it..but problems never stoped.Now that the second trans went again I finally gave up the ship @155K.Toyota/Honda/Subaru, here I come




Same as any other used

I LOVE the roominess of the van. I have a large family and needed the room and often haul bigger items in it. It has been GREAT for this. This is the 3rd Grand Voyager I've owed. I've replaced the transmission, the surpentine belt several times until I finally replaced the pully and solved that problem. When we replaced the battery, the interior lights started flashing and the cruise stopped working, the lights and the horn don't work. Like everyone has said, transmission and electrical is where you will sink your money into this used vehicle. But every used car has problems. We've taken the rear seats out and had a nice bed when we drove from Idaho to Arizona twice with no problems.




Been good for us

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 4dr Minivan

I've read a lot of bad reviews on this vehicle but our van has been nothing but great! We bought ours new 10 years ago and have only replaced driver's door window regulator (100,000) the water pump (150,000) and starter (160,000) beyond the usual batteries, tires, transmission service, oil changes etc. The transmission did shift rough a couple of times early (30,000) but dealer fix this under warranty. Van rides very smoothly, handles -like a van- and is great for hauling stuff and family trips and vacations. We have been very pleased and some what suprised by how reliable this vehicle has been. It has the 3.3 V6.




Good van

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 4dr Minivan

Overall good van. One problem was 2 yrs ago AC compressor blew up - would not have been too expensive except Chrysler was too cheap to install an in-line screen on the ac lines, thus metal exploded into ac lines. My mechanic tried in vain to flush, but ended up replacing compressor, etc. He probably spent 2 weeks - on / off trying to fix - labor was probably 2 grand, but he only charged me 2k w/ all parts & labor. Also front headlights stink - plastic covers have discolored over time - but these lights never illuminated greatly. Other than that van has run 10.5 years w/out too much of a problem. Would I buy again yes.




Best family vehicle

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 4dr Minivan

Well, this is my 4th Plymouth minivan. Been driving them since 1987. My 1998 Grand Voyager has over 175,000 miles, I have replaced crank position sensor, throttle position sensor and map sensor, replaced leaking valve cover gaskets, radiator and serpentine belt five times. Did all repairs myself except for the three sensors. The only headache problem is the yellowed headlight lenses. Just did a full brake job. Not bad for 175,000 miles. About time to trade it in, but hate to give up the family memories. Just wish it got better than the 18 MPG over the years. Overall, great family vehicle.

Worst vehicle i have owned!

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 4dr Minivan

Bought used at 70,000 miles. The lifters had just been rebuilt. In 3 years of ownership, we replaced the serpentine belt 9 times, the power steering pump, the water pump, the fuel pump, the key ignition because the key would not turn, (the locksmith said he replaces at least 1 a week on these vehicles), crank sensor, map sensor, leaking valve cover gaskets, the cd player, the passenger seat would not lay back, the power windows get stuck, the van smoked constantly, poor acceleration.... I paid it off 2 months ago, and now the timing belt broke causing engine failure because of poor engine design! I have had this van towed countless times and have been stranded more times than imaginable. We will never buy again!
