1998 Plymouth Voyager Owner Comments

problem #5

May 192011

Voyager 6-cyl

  • 140,000 miles


1989 Plymouth Voyager left and right front towers are consumed by corrosion exposing the mcpherson strut assemblies and severely weakening the load bearing structure causing serious risk of strut tower failure as on or both struts will penetrate into the engine compartment causing the front of the vehicle to drop to the ground. Should such failure occur while the vehicle is in motion at highways speeds, loss of vehicle control will result, causing serious injury or death. This is a known defect covered by Chrysler corporation in a technical service bulletin (tsb) labeling the problem as merely cosmetic.

problem #3

Voyager 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,624 miles
While checking under the hood, the right strut tower appeared to have an unusual amount of rust on top. A crack was then noticed. Mechanic stated it would have to be replaced and this was a common problem on this model. The original part was painted and rusted due to failure of paint. Needs to be totally replaced with new kit that corrects the problem. Failure of this part may result in loss of control and inability to steer the car. Poor engineering cited by mechanic. Prior models did not have this problem and manufacturer should step to provide this repair under an extended warranty since it is a very expense repair and part should never have cracked in the first place.
