We did have one, an older model.  The boot space was fantastic, even with the third row of seats being used, there was still space for our mid-sized pram, all those other items you need when you go out with 3 kids under 3 as well as a week's shopping.  We also went camping with it and all our gear was packed in the boot, including tent.

We found that the majority of 7 seaters lose a lot of boot space when the third row of seats is being used.

Ours was about 10 years old when we bought it and showed its age - not overly well taken care of and we got rid of it only a couple of years later, but would not hesitate to buy another (only not so old!)

The long wheel base model has a lot of boot space, short wheel base model has hardly any

Agree with getting the long wheel base (is it the Grand version) that gives you the bigger boot space.  Loved out Voyager, it was an older model but it was great for carting our 5 kids around.

Friend had a Grand Voyager. It was fantastic inside, heap of space, all lapsash belts, masses of room in the boot. Big downside was the repair costs, they bought the car second hand and after not too long there seemed to be one thing or another go wrong with it. All the parts cost a fortune. They have since traded it on a Kia Carnival.

We have the 2006 grand voyager. Brilliant car. Love it! Plenty of boot space, even more when the back seats are down (which never happens with us having 4 kids).

We had one, and i loved it, but like a PP mentioned, when things started to go wrong, it was a nightmare. Ours was a 2003, but had done a few km's. Loved the space, we had the CGV luxury model. Heaps of boot space and the 7 seats were great.

If i was going to buy one it would be a new one under warranty.

We have just brought a new car and it wasn't a Chrysler.

We have 2010 Grand Voyager.  We are SOOOO happy with it, lots of space in the boot with the 3 row seats up, it is quite deep.  I agree with lifehacker it is heavy on fuel but I find it easy to drive and it suits our needs perfectly (2 kids and 3 adults to cart around regularly).
