2007 Dodge Caravan Reviews

Vehicle Overview
When Dodge redesigned its minivans for 2005, the shorter-wheelbase version, called the Caravan, missed out on many of the new features that highlighted its larger Grand Caravan brother. Instead, Dodge promoted the standard Caravan's price as its most attractive selling point.

Built on a platform like the Grand Caravan's, the regular Caravan has a shorter, 113.3-inch wheelbase. Standard-length Chrysler Town & Country minivans are similar to Dodge's models but have more upscale interior appointments. Two new shades of blue — Modern Blue Pearl Coat and Marine Blue Pearl Coat — are new for 2007 Caravans, and Cargo Van models have standard glass windows in the sliding side doors.


Exterior
Dodge's familiar crosshair grille sits up front and has a U-shaped design. That grille is similar to the one on the Dodge Magnum wagon. The front also contains a molded license plate pocket.

Aluminum wheels hold 16-inch tires on SXT minivans, while SE models roll on 15-inch steel wheels. Power operation for the passenger-side sliding door is optional on the SXT.


Interior
All Caravan passenger minivans seat seven occupants. Super High Density Foam, developed by NASA for the space program, is used in the minivan's seats.

Dual-zone air conditioning, a rear defroster system, tilt steering wheel, heated power mirrors, sunscreen glass, power door locks and keyless illuminated entry are standard on the SXT. The SE model is less abundantly equipped, but options are available. Power-adjustable pedals are optional.

Cargo volume behind the rear seat is 15.1 cubic feet. With all seats removed, the Caravan holds 142.3 cubic feet of cargo. Caravans are 189.3 inches long overall, whereas the Grand Caravan measures 200.5 inches in length. Both minivans are 68.9 inches high to the top of the roof rack.


Under the Hood
The Caravan can have either a 150-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 3.3-liter V-6 that develops 170 hp and 200 pounds-feet of torque. Each engine works with a four-speed automatic transmission.

Safety
Three-row side curtain airbags are optional, and antilock brakes are optional only on the SXT. An inflatable knee blocker helps protect the driver.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
