Worst car I ever owner(Ford Taurus a close second)I purchased this van new and have always taken it back for service every 3000 mi and did what ever the maintenance called for.Needless to say I have had constant problems from day one with this van.It has been towed more times than I want to remember.Over the years I have just about replaced everything-transmission,starter, generator, steering column,ignition switch 2x,AC parts,wheel cylinders, sway bushings 4x,computer module parts,radiator,gaskets..+++++ Everytime it was repaired I thought that would be it..but problems never stoped.Now that the second trans went again I finally gave up the ship @155K.Toyota/Honda/Subaru, here I come
Bought used at 70,000 miles. The lifters had just been rebuilt. In 3 years of ownership, we replaced the serpentine belt 9 times, the power steering pump, the water pump, the fuel pump, the key ignition because the key would not turn, (the locksmith said he replaces at least 1 a week on these vehicles), crank sensor, map sensor, leaking valve cover gaskets, the cd player, the passenger seat would not lay back, the power windows get stuck, the van smoked constantly, poor acceleration.... I paid it off 2 months ago, and now the timing belt broke causing engine failure because of poor engine design! I have had this van towed countless times and have been stranded more times than imaginable. We will never buy again!
We were fortunate to have bought an experimental van by Chrysler. It is an Expresso Grand Voyager, 6-cyl, 3.8L. It has a truck chassie and a towing package. We have pulled a camper for 8-9 yrs. Have 195k. It has been a tank, very comfortable with 4 captains chairs. Replaced transmission once. We need another van, to carry 7, and to pull our camper. We think, that if you can find one of the 1600 ever made, you can trust it.
Looking for a sleeper (one with low mileage).
3.3L engine. Blew gasket at 67k - out of warranty. Thereafter, major components were replaced, water pump, alternator, a/c compressor... Blew front rocker arm at 98k. Blew back rocker arm at 104k. Replaced head at 106k. All expenses from my own pocket.
This vehicle has bee a lot of trouble
after we hit about 90,000 miles. Had
to have transmission replaced and the
A/C evaporator replaced. The engine is
the 3.0 litre V6 and is now begging to
smoke when started and makes the
infamous "ticking" sound for several
minutes when cold. Had problems with
the belt tensioner. The electronics
now seem to be giving out.... the
intermitent wipers have stopped working
and the instrument panel flashes on and
off occasionally. The acceleration is
adequate but somewhat lacking with the
