  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

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

    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.

14 good years

Vehicle: 1997 Plymouth Voyager 3dr Minivan

"Wanda", our beloved family vehicle of 14 years has finally gone to car heaven mostly due to a dying transmission. We took this van everywhere (especially camping), and when I went to college it became my car. Does not like going fast, and sometimes taking turns can make you feel like you're driving a tank...but realistically it's a mini-van not a BMW 5 speed. Would have loved to have driven it for at least another year, but fixing the tranny would cost $2000+ which is a lot more than the car is worth.




Drove her into the ground

I got this van from my parents when it had roughly 140k on it. I just turned 202k and am only now starting to have problems with it (a variety of things that add up to me getting a new car). The most I ever put into it was new tires, oil changes, brakes and new joint of some kind (not very car savvy). It is by no means pretty to look at or not even close to being cool to drive, but it's comfortable and extremely reliable. I would absolutely buy another one if I had purpose to. Only getting a Jetta because I have no need for a mini van anymore.




I would buy another

I bought my 1997 Voyager when I still had kids at home and after eleven years/215,000 miles and no major work done, the tranny finally gave out. I hope to rebuild myself, I would hate to give up on this car. I would like to buy another new one, I liked it so much!

I bought a '96 Voyager, returned it under the lemon laws less than a year later. Had to pay $1K to lose the '96 and get the '97. At 55K miles check engine light came on. No other symptoms. Dealer couldn't make it go off. Finally they decided to do a valve job. I had to pay $1500 for that. They thought it was a good deal. I guess it was a good deal for them. Since about 70K miles the engine has been tapping. It sounds like a lifter problem and at 140K miles, it's a constant sound when the engine is running. Sounds like a diesel. Uses oil, burning it and dripping it. Headliner is falling off. Always runs OK, taps constantly. Eats belt tensioners annually. HVAC head has become intermittent.




Transmission is a dud

Vehicle: 1997 Plymouth Voyager 3dr Minivan

The transmission is a problem with the 1997 Plymouth Voyager. I have had to have my transmission rebuilt at around 100,000 miles. I am now at 143,000 and the symptoms are returning. I am vigilant at maintaining oil and fluid levels. I would conclude that it is in the engineering.

I had this car seven years and have had only minor problems. I used it to haul small furnishings and accessories. It worked great. Yhe interior is simple, yet nicely designed, as is the exterior. I've had some minor problems with electical, but overall have been satisfied.
