I have owned my V plate 2.5 LE for just over 6 years ,bought it at 40,000 miles ... Just passing 120000 ... In that time it has had 6 tyres ,1 battery .. A few oil and filter changes , front pads, and more recently a water pump and ancillary belt ... It is a pleasure to drive .. Spacious ( a friend of mine borrowed it to move her house in ) comfortable and fairly economical considering all the things it can do.. I tow a abbey Stafford with it and have taken it abroad with every confidence... (read more)

Fantasitc car!!! great at towing, Lots of space, chairs are like armchairs, My 4 boys love it!! Only downfall we found was, if you only had 1/4 of a tank of diesel and you were on a hill pointing downwards, our car has cut out due to the fuel outlet being at the back of the tank, to which I did have to get the A.A out to rebleed the system.
Parts are expensive as they are made by Mercedes. Last year (2009) it cost us £900 for front brakes and bearings. But this is the only thing we have... (read more)

Owned 2 Voyagers - suffered third gear box failure August. 1st failure cost me £4000 for 2.4 petrol after 52K miles and 4 years old - Chrysler refused any "goodwill" gesture even though FDS records checked. 2nd failure @ 18K miles on current car after 22 months, replaced under warrenty. 3rd failure at 58K -technically 40K miles and three years since being replaced. Insisted on extended warrenty for gearbox, which ran out three days before the third failure, now waiting for Chrysler to honour... (read more)

We brought this from a car dealer 7yrs ago. we fell in love with it,inside and out. my hubby kept up its maintenance, oil ,water etc,we have four children so this big car was going to last till they were teenagers. thats not to say the kids loved it as much as we did.[especially when at the end of the week the amount of empty crisp packets and cans and the mcdonalds mess,the tamptrums feet banging, a skip with a tramp in it was probably cleaner and less noisy] but! our car took it well well,...

I love Grand Voyagers when they work. That's the problem, every other week there's something else goes wrong.
Charles Hurst Chrysler in Belfast are rude, unreasonable and absolute rip off merchants. This makes ownership even worse as they are the only dealer in N.Ireland.
I'm putting mine up for sale due to the amount of trouble I've had with the rear brakes. Totally unacceptable considering how much they cost. I'm going for a Volkswagon Caravelle next. (read more)

I'm on my 3rd Chrysler Voyager 2.5TD, all starship miles, all the same faults ie Syncros on 1st and second gear. I am lucky to be in the job and have done them myself (what a bitch) the syncro and spacers cost £475 from chrysler any other car they would be £55. Also number 1 injector packs up
Loses power at 2100rpm in 5th gear. Another £600 for 1 injector.
You might ask why 3 voyagers, because you can buy them off people who cant afford the repairs and it will do 45 to the... (read more)

Have had my Chrysler Voyager Base since 69000 miles. 97 model on S plate. had front brake pads doing which is fine and pretty normal. Now have whirring noise which stops when clutch is put in. was told that it was the gear box and that hopefully it just wasn't oiled enough. Had sump seal replaced at cost of £188.00 and no improvement. After reading all these reviews I have assigned my self to it being the gear box and probably needing anew one! Better bring out the credit card! and yes I... (read more)

My Voyager is just over 3 years old and needs a new gearbox - this will be the 4th! Is that a record? After a year I needed a new engine, new gearbox, new turbocharger, and new exhaust system. The ABS sensors have also been replaced. (read more)

Bought the Chrysler Voyager from 7 seater dealer with 65000 MILES on, have been paying out since, cruise control went off, horn wouldn't work, airbag faulty, gearbox packed up, unrepairable damage, had already been fixed previously, clutch plates worn, had to be replaced. Exhaust and tyres expensive too, brakes expensive. Servicing expensive. Valuation of car has depreciated a lot in two years of buying it. We have paid out approx £3000 in repair bills in this time. Will never buy Chrysler... (read more)

Having first read the previous reviews, I can identify with a lot of them. The head gasket has just gone on my Chrysler Voyager Base 2.5 TD at 88,000 mls. I find the seat belts hard to release. Does anybody else? Clutch on its way out and Chrysler have quoted £ 1000.00 to replace!! Had a problem last year with the engine cutting out whilst negotiating roundabouts, put the car in for them to run a diagnostics check. This came back saying we needed a new diesel pump costing circa £2000 but my... (read more)

I purchased my Chrysler voyager Base 2.5 TD with a modest 65,000 miles on the clock,and a full dealer service history. In the three months of ownership, the gearbox failed,the rear brake cyliders failed, the o/s trackrod end failed,the air venting mechanism failed, the aircon failed, the exhaust failed, the clutch was virtually worn out (£300+ just for the parts)the front suspension had clonks, and the electrics had a mind of their own. My advise to anyone even considering one of these... (read more)

Chrysler Voyager Base is a good machine, had it converted to LPG at a cost of £1200 - repaid for conversion within 10 months of fuel @31p per litre!!, dissapointed with electrical failures of airbag and fan relay at a vehicle only done 50,000 miles - head gasket leaking oil - dealer fix cost of £700+ again shouldn't happen on a fully dealer serviced vehicle of this age, any comments from other owners?

On balance the Chrysler Voyager Base is a very comfortable vehicle. Ideal for a large family. Will carry 7 adults (Not just Munchkins).Diesel is a bit noisy compared to latest CRD but most practical option unless you own an oil well or get the V6 gas converted. 30mpg (mainly school run)> Ibelieve the V6 petrol is well less than 20 although very smooth.

Car had been thro MOT and Service 10-days prior to the failure at the Swansea dealership.
Contacted the nearest dealership(Swansea),due to the fact that my local dealership had closed I was not advised of the extended warranty option from june etc the Chrysler "goodwill" meant that I had to have the car transported at my cost,they would then confirm cost to effect repairs... (read more)

After having bought a 2.0litre petrol manual voyager with slightly higher than average mileage we found that the remote locking was inclined to unlock itself when the vehicle had become very wet, especially after having been high pressure hose washed and then at 79,000 miles the head gasket went. When it was taken to our local Voyager garage specialist we were then told that it was in fact the 3rd vehicle of similar age and mileage that they had had in with a blown head gasket in 10 days. Is... (read more)

With about 5400 miles on this 2001 Chrysler Voyager Base MPV, 2 air bag sensors & 2 air bags have been replaced. Then the vent control module went bad, had that replaced guess what? Yep the new module was also bad. Ten days later we got the van back and so far it's still working. Of course my wife is afraid to drive it - I mean you don't know if the air going to work when needed or if it will just pop out (can you say LEMON).
P.S. it's been in the shop 31 days in 8 months..... (read more)
