Our van has 189,000 miles and is still going strong, original transmission and engine. A couple times a year it needs a new part or two, but it's always small, cheap stuff. I think the transmission problem is with the 3.8 V6, not the 3.3 b/c me and everyone I know with the 3.3 hasn't had transmission problems. I splurged on new shocks/struts and tires and the thing cruises so smooth down the interstate you'd think it was new. We've been very happy with this van. Only gripe is the gas mileage, 14 around town, 20-21 on the highway, it's about the same as an SUV.

I bought my 99 Grand Voyager new. It's been very reliable. While under warranty I had a problem with rear wheel bearings and with the overdrive sensor in the transmission. At about 80,000 miles, had a problem with the headlight switch. Still looks good at 151,000 miles and I plan to run it for a while yet. The 3.3 engine is very reliable and I've not had problems with the transmission that seem to plague others.

I've been driving for 44 years and owned maybe a dozen cars. This is by far the best of all. I have 210,000 miles on this van in 10 years. It's been tuned up only twice, the last time being 3 years ago. Just last week it passed DEQ/EPA emissions testing with flying colors. Not one major component has ever failed up to this point although it appears the starter may need to be replaced soon. I've driven 4,000 mile trips and enjoyed every minute of driving. On one trip in 2008 I drove 1070 miles in 17 hours in a single day. A week later I made the retun trip in a single day. At no time was I uncomfortable or fatigued. Maybe I own the exception rather than the rule but I love it.

We purchased our '99 van in '00 with only 7,000 miles on it. The engine went in 2004. Since then we have replaced oil pump, fuel pump, radiator, and now the transmission is gone. The driver window doesn't work, as well as the left rear vent window. The power lock for the rear hatch stopped working in 2002. We have had trouble with the ac for the past 4 years. The van's rear left speaker caught fire in 2005 while I was driving to work. Thank God my children weren't with me at the time. The bushings are shot and the brake system has always given us trouble. From the first year we purchased it the van leaked water into the front. I regret the day we bought this van.
SE models get body-color door and liftgate handles, as well as a body-colored front grille. All models add a cargo net between the front seats, and you can now get built-in child seats with the second-row captain's chairs.
