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.
Comfy seats, heater and AC fan for the backseaters, decent gas miliege for the year of van, plenty of room and plenty of seating for a family, a sliding back door on both sides of the van for easy loading.
Like most all cars now, this van is not easy to change the spark plugs...more room in the engine compartment please...don't copy the japenese on this point of crazy compaction. After 10 years, paint overcoat sarting to peel, better paint please. More little storage nooks on the dash.
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.
We have several favorite features, to name a few: quad seating, rear a.c., bag holders in back, great stereo system and the upper console that tells us all kinds of info. Overall it has been a great vehicle and I am grateful we've had it for all these years.
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.
Cupholders are solid, rear power outlet a plus. Find an extra captains chair at a junkyard, and put in the back instead of the bench! Cheap way to add real flexibility to the seating arrangement. Seats are solid, van rides nice and quiet on the freeway- we took this van on many long trips.
More creature comforts for the inside - this version of the Voyager is relatively basic. Chrysler needs to re-design stow-and-go on current models, the seats on the 2000-2004 versions are much more comfortable for long hauls.
We've had our Grand Voyager for over 5 years now. It is our third one in a row, and we have had no problems with any of them. We considered trading on an SUV, but based on mileage, seating capacity and utility a minivan still made more sense for us.
This Mark III model is loaded. The TV is great for grandkids. 6 disc CD is great for all. The interior running lights add a nice touch. Leather all around, second row removable seats ( 3rd bench also) is not unmanageable-even for grandad. Never used the headset/radio that is for rear passengers only. Vehicle now has 76,000 miles with no problems to date. Front rotors are starting to pulsate, can't complain. Highway mileage is a shade under 21 mpg, also pretty good. Hauled a set of bunk beds 2 weeks ago.
Like the outside temp. feature along with mpg. miles to fill up, etc.. Power drivers seat is nice also.
