Our van has 189,000 miles and is still going strong, original transmission and engine. A couple times a year it needs a new part or two, but it's always small, cheap stuff. I think the transmission problem is with the 3.8 V6, not the 3.3 b/c me and everyone I know with the 3.3 hasn't had transmission problems. I splurged on new shocks/struts and tires and the thing cruises so smooth down the interstate you'd think it was new. We've been very happy with this van. Only gripe is the gas mileage, 14 around town, 20-21 on the highway, it's about the same as an SUV.
I bought my 99 Grand Voyager new. It's been very reliable. While under warranty I had a problem with rear wheel bearings and with the overdrive sensor in the transmission. At about 80,000 miles, had a problem with the headlight switch. Still looks good at 151,000 miles and I plan to run it for a while yet. The 3.3 engine is very reliable and I've not had problems with the transmission that seem to plague others.
Vehicle bought in February 2000 with
24,000 miles on it. It had been a
reliable vehicle until the
transmission "blew up" at 69,000 miles
going 35mph. Lost total control of the
vehicle. The differential blew a 6" by
3" whole in the casing completely
distroying the transmission. A life
threatening defect for anyone traveling
at a high rate of speed. Incident
happened outside of warranty. Reported
to dealer and Chrysler but hey were
only concerned with the warranty
Bought this car new. It is loaded with
all the goodies I wanted having the
Expresso Package. Not cheap, $28,000,
but worth every penny. It is extremely
comfortable, has plenty of power, but
would suggest the optional 3.8L engine
and very roomy for my family of 5.
