#2122 of 4276 1996 grand voyager
Jan 26, 2004 (11:52 am)
Just put 73000 mile on the 96 grand voyager se. It turned 8 years old on 1-20-04. Wouldn't you know it. the engine needs to be rebuilt. I mean I can understand buying new roters every 2 years instead of brake pads, and of course the transmission was relaced in 2000 at 37000 miles but shouldn't a v-6 engine with timely oil changes last more than 73000 miles? I see chrysler has almost $4000 rebates on a new voyager. Somehow I just don't think I'll take the bait. Donated the Voyager & bought a Toyota Sienna the dealer drove 120 miles just to show me

Probably a good decision.....
#2124 of 4276 Driver-side rear door - STUCK!!!
Jan 29, 2004 (4:43 am)
I have a 2000 Grand Caravan Sport. The back door on the drivers side is jammed. I took it to a dealer and they told me they would have to cut into the door to release the rear latch. Has anyone had/heard of this problem? Does any one have a solution that would not involve slicing and dicing my van?

I took my van to the dealer and found out that the gas cap wasn't sealing and had to be replaced.
#2126 of 4276 2001 Chrysler T&C coolant leak

The coolant level in my 2001 Chrysler T&C keeps dropping with no sign of external leakage. We pressure tested the cooling system and found that the pressure dropped steadily. Has anyone had similar problems, what was the cause,and how much did it cost to fix the problem.

Sounds like a classic head gasket failure to me. You should start experiencing one of the following soon, if you're not already;
Rough run at start up
Mist in the exhaust, that smells sweet
or water in the oil
If it's out of warranty, I'd trade it off, myself.
#2129 of 4276 Trading it off with a known problem...

Sounds unethical to me?
#2130 of 4276 Don't ask, don't tell policy.

That way you can have "two" people complaining about the same vehicle and never buy another one from that car company.

Wow. I'm a big fan of ethics myself, but I'm surprised trading it off bothers you guys. I would not sell it without disclosing the concern, but I don't feel I'm representing anything about the car on a trade in, personally. Maybe a dealer feels differently about it than I do. The dealer usually low balls me so badly on a trade in, that I don't feel any guilt about it. Am I wrong?
