Chrysler Grand Voyager LX diesel 2006

I bought my Grand Voyager 2.8 diesel a couple of weeks back with 108,000mile on the clock. I intend to use it for a house-move. The first problem was a flat battery; after a lot of investigation it seems an endemic design fault with these MPVs due to excessive background current draw from the battery when parked up.

I fixed this problem with a combination of two 2.4watt solar ’chargers’ on the windscreen (on special offer from Maplins) and the employment of a switch-able helper battery placed in the passenger footwell, as there’s nowhere else to put it. This battery is switched ON before starting, left on during the journey, then switched off when finished with engine.

The second problem was overheating, which turned out to be a plugged-up radiator as the antifreeze had not been changed from new. I expected problems with a second-hand car. As a driving experience? Very laid back, very soft suspension, very easy to drive with the autobox and for me, the diesel engine seems quiet enough, but then I don’t rev it’s head off.

Fuel consumption seems about the same as my previous diesel Jag, about 32mpgUK on mixed running. Provided nothing else goes wrong with it, I shall like it. I spent around £400 fixing things.

I wish I had looked into the Grand Voyager before, as compared to all the other MPV’s it is pure luxury. No more hard horrible suspension when driving over speedbumps or potholes just a smooth ride. No more kids crying/moaning as they are watching DVD’s on the built-in screens with wireless headphones so you can still listen to music.

Loads of room to relax with no more worrying about the gearstick (or the kids hitting it by accident) as it’s an automatic with the gear stick on the steering column – all at hand. Massive storage compartments under the floor where the seats can store away with quick easy movements. Parking sensors to help you park. The main part is just driving it, no more stress or driving around like a maniac. Just let the other fools fly by you while you relax and drive and take it all in.

The only negative is getting used to the large size when parking in the small car parking spaces in the UK but you soon get used to that – those electric sliding side doors come in handy then!
