Default Dodge Voyager Reviews??

I am not looking at getting rid of my Ranger, I'm just looking for some unbiased, semi-educated opinions on this veichle if anyone has any? From what I researched, it just seems like people aren't fond of the interior, and its 'not as good' as the Caravan.

I know this is a Ford forum, and I am gonna get some guff about it, but I am doing some research for my old man. He just asked me to find out some details about it.

Anyone?

stay away from all newer dodge Chrysler jeep vehicles, they have tons and tons of problems and defects, that minivan your looking at has a seat belt defect and it will roll down hill backwards at random, might be even more problems.

Well thats fucking scary


My buddy drives minivans for cabs...His toyota (yup toyota) sienna is probably the best van hes had...Since Ive known him, hes gone through 2 dodges, a chrysler, and a ford...He currently has the toyota and just bought a honda, the honda is wore out, so he needs to get some stuff fixed on it before he turns it into a cab. He always had problems with his dodges.

For the price, none of the japs can begin to compare to a grand caravan. The only bad thing i've noticed about it was that chrysler is behind it, but those clueless asshats usually shut up when we bring up the viper (now renamed mercedes sls), the challenger, the charger, the 300, the grand cherokee, the ram, etc etc..

Any Chrysler product my family has ever owned has been a maintenance problem. It seems they cost less to purchase new or used for a reason.

just becuase it has a cummins in it doesnt mean its bullet proof. The engine is good, but the transmissions suck, electrical fires (yes dodge had them too), brake problems, dash problems and some dashes are known to crack apart into pieces leaving big holes in the dash. I can give you a bunch of web pages about these kinds of problems.

They all got their lemons boys. I wasn't looking for reviews on Dodge, I was wondering if anyone had experience with this particular vehicle.

Thanks for the feedback.

The Voyagers and Caravans I drove for a company didn't last long, we went through them fairly quickly.

As far as the 2500 and 3500 trucks asked about ealier, I've only had experience with their cars and vans. From that expeience and long term (3 to 5 years) consumer magazine and site evaulations, can only exstrapolate that they are not much better.
