2003 Chrysler Voyager Review

Great ride for a cheap price and is perfect for the entire family.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2003 Chrysler Voyager is the lower-priced cousin of the Chrysler Town & Country. You might expect a large drop off in quality, and there is a little, but the Voyager has a lot to excite the driver on a budget. For one, a V-6 engine ensures that the weight will not be a burden when merging onto a highway or attempting to pass. Not only that, it’s quiet, too. Pair the quiet V-6 with the surprising agility from the handling, and consumers have one fun vehicle to drive. But it isn’t without its downsides. The interior has some cheap plastic materials that get in the way of the otherwise ergonomic design. The interior is bare as well; it does not have a lot of standard features. The optional features are limited. There is also a matter of reliability. There are known issues with the Voyager losing brake fluid from a faulty master cylinder, issues with hoses braking, and more. Make sure it has a thorough inspection before purchasing.

The Range

Body Style: minivan
Engines: 2.4-liter four-cylinder, 3.3-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Chrysler Voyager LX

What's New

The 2003 Chrysler Voyager lineup has been rearranged. All base models and the four-cylinder eC are discontinued. There is only one trim line called the LX. There is a standard equipment package as well as a new Popular Equipment Package. Also gone is the terrible three-speed automatic transmission of the past. There are also two new exterior colors called Satin Jade and Butane Blue.

Exterior

The 2003 Chrysler Voyager is your standard four-door minivan model. Unlike the upscale Chrysler Town & Country, it does not offer power sliding doors on either side. It comes equipped with standard 15-inch wheels. It rides on a 113.3-inch wheelbase with a 189.1-inch long deck.

Interior

The 2003 Chrysler Voyager seats seven passengers with plenty of room thanks to the long wheelbase of the vehicle. It's like the upscale Town & Country and has three rows of seats. Unfortunately, it does not offer a third-row seat, which folds into the floor, a feature offered by most of the competition. It can be equipped with a 50/50 split-fold seat that allows buyers to slide some extra-long cargo into the back. Quad Command seating is another optional seating feature. Quad Command switches the second-row bench seating for comfortable bucket seats instead. It comes with a standard cassette player with an optional CD player. Other standard features are scarce. Buyers have to upgrade to the Popular Equipment Package on the V-6 model to get power accessories. There are also a lot of plastic molding pieces that make the interior look cheap.

Performance & Handling

One of the best features of the 2003 Chrysler Voyager is its drivetrain. It's included with one of two engine types. The 2.4-liter, dual-overhead cam, four-cylinder engine produces 150 horsepower. This isn’t the greatest engine in the lot, but it will get the job done for the most part. The better option is the 3.3-liter, V-6 engine that produces 180 horsepower. Both engines are paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. The V-6 engine might not have the best take off time from a standstill, but it does pass and merge fluidly without minimal struggle. Stay away from the four-cylinder: most drivers find that it doesn’t have enough strength. The handling is light to the touch and is easy to drive on the highway. Even with the large wheelbase it is a breeze to turn in an urban environment.

Safety

The 2003 Voyager comes equipped with child seat anchors, ventilated front disc brakes, rear door child safety locks, front seatbelt pretensioners, and electronic brake force distribution. Front airbags are also included. Side impact airbags and anti-lock brakes are optional on both models. The NHTSA gave four out of five stars for frontal impacts for both driver and passenger. It also received four out of five stars for front-side impact, but five out of five stars for back-side impacts.

EPA Fuel Economy

Chrysler Voyager LX: 18/25 mpg city/highway
