AWD-equipped vehicles can show a wide range of transmission problems; usually, the wrong-sized tires are being used. Be sure that all the tires are the same and that all four are replaced at the same time. Dodge recommends tire rotation every 7,500 miles.

Newest reported Plymouth Grand Voyager problems
Worn seals inside the transmission may cause problems with upshifting and downshifting in automatic transmissions.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.
Problems with the wiper parking circuit or wiper motor can cause the windshield wipers not to stop in the proper position.
Spilling beverages around the cup holder may cause the lid to stick or bind. To fix the problem, remove and wash the cup holder with dishwashing soap and water and apply lubricant to the sliding mechanism.
A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.
An intermittent loss of speed control can happen soon after the transaxle input or output speed sensor has been replaced. The problem is most likely caused by bad connectors.
Often caused by rust, the temperature control lever may be difficult to move. Spray an anti-rust penetrate on the lower pivot for the lever and apply lubricant to prevent future corrosion.
An improperly-seated connection on the starter (coming from the battery) may cause the engine not to crank. Plastic must be ground off the cable terminal so it can sit flat and flush.
