This thing was great for its space. We
used to haul lots of people and lots of
big bulky stuff (bulky things you can't
fit in newer, narrower minivans). But
I can't trust it to always get us where
we want to go anymore. It only has
96000 on it and we've spent the last
couple of years replacing small
mechanical parts. Now that the tranny
is going and it is eating oil (blowing
it out the tailpipe) it's time to
replace. Sad really, we were nice to

Engine ran fine. Gas mileage great.
Design good. AC was a problem area. The
transmissions were garbage. Went
through 3 transmissions in 150k and I
maintain my vehicles well and drive
them gently. I have 4 friends /
relatives that have owned different
years of Voyagers and Caravans and they
also have had inordinate amounts of
transmission problems. It was because
of the transmission problems I did not
by another Dodge mini van. I just
traded and switched to another brand.
The Caravan would be economical if not
for the AC and the tranny problems.
The Voyager sees a number of changes for 1994. On the outside, the vans have revised front and rear fascias, body-side molding and lower-body cladding. Inside, you'll find a new instrument panel, various revisions to the controls and a front-passenger seat that offers fore/aft adjustment. In addition, Plymouth has made improvements to sliding-door operation and the windshield wipers, and taken measures to reduce noise and vibration in the cabin. On the safety front, all vans get a standard passenger-side front airbag this year, along with side-impact beams that meet 1997 federal passenger car standards and asbestos-free brakes. The 3.0-liter V6 becomes standard on the SE model; base vans can still get it as an option. The 3.3-liter V6, optional on the LE, benefits from additional horsepower (now up to 162) and torque (now up to 194). Remote keyless entry is now standard on the LE and optional on the SE. The optional built-in child seats now have a recline feature to improve comfort when kids are sleeping. Finally, note that all-wheel drive will no longer be offered; those who want it will need to step up to the longer-wheelbase Grand Voyager.
