The van has not been a problem. From my wife's point of view she has loved it. She likes the interior, very comfy and big. For tall people it is not a knee smasher or neck bender to get in. Very nice design. From a Mechanics point of view, it has been dependable. Transmission has held up, I change the trans fluid and filter every 40,000. The engine has no problems, change oil and run synthetic every 5,000. Braking is no problem for a van...this van is not a lamborgina, but if I wanted a lamb...then I would have bought it. The headlamps like all cars now are of plastic, keep them buffed or they dull the intesity of the headlights considerably. Do the maintenance,the van will take care you.

We have had our van for over six years and have had no problems with it. It has been reliable in all weather conditions and comfortable for our teenagers while they were growing up. All in all we love it.

I have owned since I got it new in 1999. For those considering buying one used - I recommend caution. Overall, the van is reasonably solid, and the seats are all heavy and mostly comfortable (way better than current stow-and-go). Quality/reliability is a concern - the alignment went bad after about 80,000 miles and they've never been able to fix it right since. Front suspension on driver side is rusting through the body. Went through two transmissions. A/C compressor blew at only 34000 miles. Many other failures that have become expensive. If you can find one of these with low miles, it's a good van for long trips. Highway mileage not terrible, but city mileage is low.
The Expresso trim level is discontinued, and Plymouth changes some of the standard features and options on base and SE models. Notably, base models now come with a cassette player. This is the last year for the Grand Voyager, as Chrysler begins dismantling the Plymouth division. Fortunately, the van's demise shouldn't pose much of a problem for shoppers, as the Dodge Grand Caravan gives you the same product with slightly different styling.
