2002 Chrysler Voyager 4dr Minivan (2.4L 4cyl 3A)

Review

Everything was humming along smoothly for three years, until 68K miles. Then the tranny leaves my wife and three kids stranded on a country road. Luckily it was under warranty, but they rebuilt the old crummy tranny instead of putting in a new one. Predictably, a year later at 88K the torque converter locks up 150 miles from home. I have a 2000 Neon with a manual tranny that's one of the best cars I've ever owned, but I will never, NEVER buy another Chrysler product with an auto trans. I've read too many bad things about them. I can't trust a company that will not fix a widespread problem on one of its top-selling vehicles. That's a sign of a company that has contempt for its customers.

Best Features

Lots of capacity. Good minivan overall MPG (22) in the 4 cyl with surprising acceleration, although it does struggle on an uphill interstate. Comfortable seats with easy ingress/egress. Base sound system is better than anyone else's. Climate control is great even without tinted windows.

Worst Features

Fix the bloody transmission problems! It's been 15 years or longer with this issue! Put some of that MB know-how into making a drivetrain stout enough for everyday family usage. There's no excuse not to.
