Was so excited to buy my first brand new car from the dealer, I had to add extra anchor points fitted into the third row as I had 3 in car seats and 1 in a booster. Everyone had room, we could pack the car for family trips without the need for a pod on top. Then the transmission died. Could not believe the run around I was given to have it replaced! The finishes in the interior are not good, within 2 years I have had to replace all brake pads, 4 tyres, transmission, key batteries and the plastic motor encasing under the seats and the maps gps is useless.
For such an expensive people mover, it's a real disappointment. Do not bother taking for a test drive!
It is terrible and Essendon dealership are all horrible esp. Jeff he is employed to say that there i
i bought a Chrysler Grand Voyager brand new in 2011. 6 month after, I started to hear noises, strange noises. I had to change all the tyres twice within 4 years of the purchase. I also had to change my brake pads for $1000 every 13000km. One major issue was the gear box. The gear box bought Hell on earth for me and thats what made me sell it. It was a design fail. How could such a big car have tiny wheels? The petrol alone was way too much. It's very thirsty and costy. Lastly, I do not reccomend this car under any circumstance nor Essendon dea...lers. Before purchasing the vehicle, they treat you with such privilege, but as soon as you complain about the problems, the spit in your face and refuse to help you. Unless you're willing to waste your money, I would never ever buy it. After four years i was forced to sell the car for nothing. I lost $40,000.
Stay away from Chrysler!
I bought our 2008 5th Gen 2008 Voyager brand new from Essendon Chrysler. The car looked great, good stereo, very functional lay-out and had lots of safety features. During the test drive I felt the transmission was clunky however I was assured all was in order. We bought the car and so began out nightmare with the car and Chrysler.
Within 4 weeks the side electric sliding door had broken. It took a further 2 return trips to Frankston Chrysler and 6 weeks for the parts ex USA (even though it was booked in for a recall). Another 2 trips to Fra...nkston Chrysler (messed up loan car booking) they again booked the car in for the other door but did not order the parts...) I then had my first service at 8,000km (FYI - travel 15,000 km per year) and was told the car needed new brake rotors and pads. I protested long and loud that after 8,000 kms with zero towing that a vehicle could not need this work. As they did not have brake parts i had to drive the car for 4 weeks until the parts arrived ex USA. $1600 later, service and brakes fixed. Driving home and hood lifted - they did not close it when servicing. Next service 18,000kms new brakes and rotors again. Another $1600 service. Asked a very simple job to change windscreen wipers in service. They put one correct fitting wiper blade on but the driver side a a blade that did not fit - completely different shape. I only found this out the first time it rained when it did not work - it was coming out!) Service manager told me that the brakes are the heel of this vehicle.
Comfort Great, until it starts to go bad.
I have a Chrysler Grand Voyager 2009 Touring. I bought it new off the dealer. For the first 12 months the car was a dream. It isn't a cheap car and I wanted to purchase quality.
However little by little we found the cost of maintenance was high and even though we kept up the services, things started to go wrong - very wrong. Key ignition failed - $3100, Engine overheated $4300, Battery flat (under warranty - but the battery doesn't go flat in less then 12 months from replacing it). The brake pads need replacing all the time! $1200, and the l...ist continues! Seriously the car is great when working? However I am flat out giving this vehicle 2 stars and would warn any buyer off the significant investment to purchase one. Storage, vehicle entertianment, comfort Breaks down - lots!, costly maintenance (that does not prevent breakdowns!), fuel costs
Well worth the money. nothing about this car annoys me. It drives super smooth, sound system is sensational, very roomy for the kids and adults, great for packing the car on holidays. Love it!
Everything. This car is extremely roomy, smooth to drive, has all the bells and whistles.. Fantastic family car..
Questions & Answers
Where do I start..I've had the transmission, Both gaskets changed. Coil replace, spark plugs and lead and the crank shaft sensor.
The car won't start properly... Like the car shakes badly and it won't go into gear..Any tips
Does the 2011 grand voyager lx have a reverse parking camera?
i have a 2010 grand voyager and the air conditioning is not working properly has anybody had any trouble?the car has only done 42,000klms
No air conditioning problems however I have a few extra faults and issues to report however. My low pressure tyre sensor has since failed and needs to be replaced and my electric side doors are randomly not working. Also have significant amount of water pooling in the bottom of the front driver door when it rains; look out for rust in the years to come. At my last service at Chrysler Berwick they left their expensive service computer in my car. They had no idea until I called to advise. Worth big $$$ apparently.
