Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Roomy inside but easy to park. Optional ABS. Low price.
  • Not the most reliable vehicle on the road.

1998 Highlights

Plymouth adds an Expresso trim level; intended to offer both style and value, this van has body-color door handles and silver exterior accents, and comes with privacy glass, keyless entry and a CD player. In other news, all Grand Voyagers get depowered, next-generation front airbags, adjustable front head restraints and new seat fabric. The four-speed automatic transmission receives upgrades for durability, and it can now be paired with the 3.0-liter V6 (which is LEV-certified in California). Other minor changes include an easy-entry feature for the left-hand captain's chair (in the second row) on vans with the left-hand sliding door, revised built-in booster seats and grocery bag hooks on the rear seat backs.

TOTAL TRASH

SE 4dr Minivan
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

Worst vehicle I have owned!

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!

SE 4dr Minivan
The major problems I've had with my Plymouth Grand Voyager in three years of ownership are: 1)a short out of the entire instrument cluster, 2)a bad head gasket on the 3.3L V6, and 3)an annoying rattle from the luggage rack on windy days. Other thanthat, the Grand Voyager is comfortable, responsive, easy to drive and pretty reliable.

trouble after 90,000
tbal,07/11/2004
SE 4dr Minivan
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 A/C on.

Should I lease or buy a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
