My second review of the same vehicle 1.5 years lat
Ok, this is my second review of my 1999 Dodge Caravan SE 15th anniversary edition. I have owned and regularly driven the van now since Nov 2019. I have taken it on 4 trouble free long road trips within Western Canada plus moved items and camped it in a lot. I bought it with both rear seat benches removed so the van has tons of room. So, Ive replaced a few parts along the way. The large serpentine drive belt, the alternator, and battery,the wiper motor, all 3 wiper blades, the two front stabilizer bars, (Moog brand). The front brake pads, new coolant and few oil and filter changes of course as well as one transmission fluid change. I have done all this so the van lasts me which it has. Ive put 30, 000 kms on it approx since buying it. Im in this vehicle for the long haul. I believe it will last me another 5 to 10 years at least with no major problems. Its very reliable and the 3 3 V6 has adequate power with good gas mileage.the 4 speed auto transmission has also proved very reliable.

I bought this used 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 15th anniversary edition last November, 2019. It had just over 300000 km on the odometer and I knew I was in for some repairs and general maintenance. After an oil change, lube and the large drivebelt replaced, I was immediately able to take the van on a 2500 km road trip from Vancouver to Calgary and back with no problems. I am very impressed of the durability of this Dodge van. After arriving back , the old alternator showed its wear by not charging the system. I replaced this and the battery so far. The step on parking brake release mechanism also needs work as well as a new brake pad and caliper for the front left wheel. Other work I'll do this summer will include a new wiper motor and a new oil pressure sensor. Overall though; this van has been great; has tons of room and I expected to have to replace a few parts when I bought it very cheaply so it's been great so far in the 7 months I've owned it.
This is a great vehicle low milage 1 owner car.
