Be extremely wary of purchasing a caravan. Dodge has an extremely poor parts supply chain. Last year, there supplier for keys went under, and I was told it would be 7 months before I could get a key made. Now, the Totally Integrated Power Module has gone out. This renders the vehicle unusable. My van has been sitting at the dealer's for 6 weeks. Both the dealer and Dodge say there is no estimate of when they will be able to obtain these parts. I notice there are other Caravans sitting back there as well. What a nightmare. Of course, when I ask Dodge about a loaner car, they refuse. So, here I am making payments on a car that may be out of service for 6 months or more.

This Dodge Cargo Van replaced one of our older catering vans in May 2011. It's great. Rated well in overall safety, drives just like a passenger vehicle, reasonable gas mileage, looks good, a lot of room for everything we haul from job to job. Had it logo'd before bringing it to the company and it looks great as a sharp catering vehicle.

Absoulutely horrible!!! Everything has been replaced at least twice. EVERYTHING!!! I have spent more of my own money also on top of thousands covered under warranty. # sets of tires, brakes , including calipers and rotors and tires in 80,000 miles. Unreliable and blue book goes down fast. The seats are horribly uncomfortable and the air conditioning sucks!! I could go on forever!! Dont' ever buy one!!

The BIG LEMON

I bought this van new in April 2008. It has only 43,000 miles and has had the brakes replaced twice. The sliding doors open and close on their own. I just had it in the shop today because of the oil light coming on briefly. The oil was completely out. So now I have to take it in to be serviced every 1,000 miles for two times. Even though we bought the extended warranty, it doesn't cover any of these items. It is expensive to maintain. I would not recommend a Dodge Mini Caravan. Thanks! Jean

This is a van that doesnt make me feel like I am really driving a VAN! I am a truck girl and after my 3rd baby we had to buy a bigger vehicle. I purchased an 08 blue caravan and we LOVE it! Drives great, excellent gas mileage compared to my trailblazer I drove before and lots of room. Plus the stow and Go seats are the best! One person can flip down a seat in 1-2-3 simple steps. Perfect for the mom who always has her hand full! Sounds like the people don't know how to service their vehicles lol you have to "maintain" you van. It can't put oil in by itself. Test drive one I bet you will love the way it drives!
