Just bought a 2005 2.8 CRD Ltd version with sat nav. Initial impressions are excellent ride, terriffic space and a decent sat nav system.
Part exchanged my 807 for this and the 807 was a good car (shame about the dealers though) but taking those seats out was a pain. The stow n' go system is excellent, the seats are easy to fold away and take out when you need them. just come back from collecting 6 people and their luggage from the airport, no problem for this car with loads of boot space even with all seats in use.
There has been lots of negative comments on this site so it will be interesting to see how I feel in a years time.
We bought a Chrysler Grand Voyager 3.3 from new in 2004. This is the most unreliable car I have ever owned and the servicing is expensive, too frequent and appalling (MTB Motors, Warrington - the rudest and worst service/customer care you could possibly imagine).
We bought the car for space, practicality (especially the sliding doors and easy access to the rear two seats) and the level of equipment on this model. However, this all pales into insignificance with the continual let down of the build quailty.
For example: 1. The electrical systems in all Voyagers drains the battery in minutes (yes minutes). Three other people I know with Voyagers all experience battery draining within minutes of leaving even a single interior light on. Chrysler do not admit the design error but if you have this car you know what I am taking about. 2. Twice the suspension rods have gone - over £500 to fix each time. 3. Engine management systems went - £1,200 4. DVD - sound does not always work or turn on. Chrylser cannot fix it. 5. Strange noise from front drivers wheel - Chrysler cannot fix it.
Fuel consumption is bad at about 16mpg around town.
I am about to buy our next family car and while the Chrylser still looks like the right choice (size, practicality) I will not make the same mistake twice. I have test driven most of the rivals and they all beat it hands down. The Mazda 5 looks like the one.
Please think twice before buying this car, it really will be a mistake - and a
I purchased a Grand Voyager 2.8CRD Signature on 1st March 2007.
Firstly I received the car without the tinted windows and sat nav the salesmen had promised and as I did not have it in writing I had to purchase them separately.
After a couple of weeks the heating unit kept powering itself on. I thought this was not a big thing and just kept switching it back off. At six weeks the rear door decided to open by itself whilst I was refuelling, nearly jamming my hand in the fuel flap. It eventually retracted and then jammed itself shut, not to work again until the bar was replaced two months later.
Then the opposite door started opening whilst in motion, the internal alarm started beeping for no reason and the alarm went off at all hours, day and night.
I demanded a replacement from the dealer and got caught in a tangle between them and the manufacturers. Three months on and I am no further forward.
Now I've had to contact radio and TV stations to get them to sort out the problems with the car. I wish I'd never bought it - it has caused a lot of stress and anxiety and spends most of its time on the drive as I won't risk members of my family loosing limbs or their lives.
bought 2001 new shape,with upgraded leather and side steps.under warranty has had interior carpet replaced(was damaged on delivery),front shocker bushes replaced(rattling on corners),gear box replaced(3rd gear grinding),after gear box replaced on service oil leak from gear box found after 3 year warranty .the dealers would not fix this under warranty but after contacting head office this was done with no charge. recently there was a recall to replace the handbrake mechanism. after recieving the vehicle back the handbrake warning light and abs light came on.the vehicle was returned for inspection and i was informed that the passenger front wheel abs sensor needed replacing. this was done for a charge of £130. within a few hours the warning lights reappeared.vehicle was returned and i was told that now the drivers side front abs sensor now needed to be replaced for a charge of £200. i took the vehicle to a local mechanic,he simply refitted the existing sensor which is now fine. i am replacing this vehicle with the volvo xc90 as i previosly had a 940 estate,mainly for the backup service provided,as the service provided by chrysler main dealer has been appalling.
