Review of the 1997 Plymouth Voyager

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Great interior and exterior design. Class-leading features. Price.

  • Cons

    3.8-liter V-6 is not available, not the most reliable vehicle on the road.

  • What's New for 1997

    Changes for 1997 include updated transmission software, an upgraded antilock brake system and an enhanced accident response system that unlocks the doors and turns on the interior lights if the front airbags deploy. Additionally, Plymouth has made improvements to the cabin insulation (to reduce noise and vibration) and cassette stereo units. Standard lighting elements now include front map lights and liftgate flood lamps; a cargo bay power point is also part of the deal. New options include an eight-way power driver seat and an overhead console with a trip computer, compass and outside temperature display. Finally, base models get new wheel covers.

Junk

Vehicle: 1996 Plymouth Voyager

i have owned this vehicle for only a year and i have spent way too much for repairs. I have replaced clockspring, oxygen censor, battery, radio and etc.. The fuses blow every couple weeks. I would not suggest this vehicle to anyone.




96 grand voyager se...can't kill

Vehicle: 1996 Plymouth Voyager

Bought this van a couple of years ago with 114K on the clock (average condition overall). Have had a couple of minor things go bad (normal wear and tear). Overall, a good people hauler. We had an 89 Dodge Caravan SE that we kept for ten years and loved it (4 cylinder,5 speed manual that we special ordered while stationed in W. Germany). We have really liked all of the Chrysler products we've owned (2 vans, 2 pickups & a sedan).

Against the odds

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Plymouth Voyager

We have owned this since 1998. We bought it at 30,000 miles and now have 190,000 on it with the original engine and original transmission, in spite of towing a small travel trailer with it for some time. We had to replace the water pump last year, and the valve cover gaskets the year before that. This van starts every time, drives smooth, and fits our 3 kids and their friends (ours is the 7-pass. version). We bought an Expedition for towing, but I am still driving the van a lot because it is such a great vehicle. This is, by far, the wisest vehicle purchase we have ever made.




Lousy transmission

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Plymouth Voyager

Transmission went at 32,000 km and 66,000 km; both fixed under warranty. NO tow hitch. Clock spring went too. Transmission completely went at 156,000 km. Chrysler Canada and the dealership offered no compensation. $2000 out of pocket. After the transmission went again at 66,000 Km I asked for a replacement. Only another repair was authorized. The dealership accused me of towing too heavy a load. I then pointed out there is no tow hitch on the vehicle.




Never again!

Vehicle: 1996 Plymouth Voyager

This van is a waste of time, money, and space on the planet. One word. Quality. NOT. How many transmissions should a person be expected to replace in one vehicle? It's been a known problem for so long. Yet they do nothing to improve the quality. We bought this instead of an Odyssey or MPV because it was so much more economical. What a huge mistake. From now on, I will never stray from Honda/Toyota/Subaru. They may cost more up front, but you save with them big time because they LAST and keep their re-sale value. You really get what you pay for. This is a gigantic waste of money. It is the most worthless vehicle I have ever owned. Never again.




Highly recommend

Vehicle: 1996 Plymouth Voyager

I've had mine for a few years and I really like it. It does leak oil and is starting to burn trans. fluid at 140,000. Otherwise, I have had few if any problems, just routine maint. It's comfortable to drive and I use it for auctions, craft shows and camping. I've had it loaded to the max without the seats and it can hold alot!!!
