The only one I've been in was Bri's one,

It was more than comfortable for five of us + luggage on an all night haul from Oxford to France. Not sure I'd fancy the fuel bill though :incheek:

They will also carry about a tonne and a half of tiles and building materials. The poor thing looked a little 'lowered' by it all though.

On the whole, seemed like a great bit of kit. As with any second hand car though, make sure its got a decent history and has been generally well looked after.

They rock!

I "baby sit" Brians's one and I'm not ashamed to say I dont wanna give it back :(

Even though its a left hooker I find it just like driving an armchair. It tows well, is very comfy on long journeys and even though its ten years old you'd never know.

Only downside if the fuel economy, but who cares when your in such a practical and cool car/van/truck etc etc :)

we both like it its our local garage( who we have used for over 15yrs) who is putting us off it. he said that he has other customers who have them and the parts are expensive and can be hard to get hold of and have elec faults that you cant fix :rolleyes:

All I can say is when selecting your vehicle of choice for channel tunnel train drag racing, the chrysler voyager has to be the one. particularly since it 'sounds faster than it is, honest'

:D

I have no doubt that they are good cars that go for miles but it might be worth pointing out that it's the only car that NCAP have tested that received zero points in their front impact crash tests - nice place to sit but not a nice place to be in the event of an accident (probably still 100% better than my splitty though :D )

Read this in '02 - Auto Express i think - so sold our 3.3 Voyager and bought a 3.0 dci Espace instead. Chipped it and loved it... proper torque. So just got a new 3.0 dci Grand Espace - 19" rims, full leather and being chipped tomorrow ;)
