The Van is awesome
I just gave up a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan with 350,000 miles on it... and went into the new stow-n-go Grand Caravan.....and love it. Drives and handles like a car.....and hope to have it for another 6+ years. Bought it from Jack Grainy in Clarence,NY, who looked high and low for a Caravan that would meet my needs.....Love this van...with sliding doors @ a push of the fob....just great on mileage, 28 gallons highway, which is the bulk of my driving....and 18 in the city. Great caravan. :-)
Its got Really great mpg, storage is great, safe.....just get it. people say they dont like vans cause of the style. Its still a great car
dependable........... very good cond.
this is a sxt model. stowaway seats.. good tires . this car is well maintained.. driven by the owner only.....
Reliable for 200,000 miles
Owned this vehicle for 7 years and put 199,954 miles on it. At 100,000 had a passenger side locking mechanism get stuck in the locked position. Dealer replaced some parts $380 and no other issues. At 145,000 had a valve spring break $1200 engine repair. At 160,000 I replaced rear shocks to regain the original smooth ride. Very roomy and comfortable for all 200,000 miles.
we've had 5 grand caravans
these are great vans with the 3.3 in the sport version. and 3.8 in the stx. they are good for at least 250,000 mi. with normal service, with no trouble at all. we're are going to buy our sixth shortly.
Exellent car for the past 5 years
We have had our Grand Caravan for about 5 years now and it has been very reliable and very comfortable to drive on long trips. Gets real good gas millage for all that it can do. We are a family of 6 and this car has always had enough room to meet our needs. The seats fit great and driving is a pleasure with the firm solid feel the van has. Well built car!
It Runs Well
The Good, I brought my 2005 Dodge grand Caravan SXT, used in March of 2008 with 43,000 miles on the clock As far as a road car, this thing can't be beat. It is comfortable and smooth over highway joists almost to the point of putting you to sleep or numbing you into mindless driving. The HVAC system is top notch when it works. I now have over 94,000 miles on the odometer. The Bad, So far I've replaced, the egr valve, and O2 sensor, the A/C compressor, sway bushings, a set of tires, brakes, clockspring, a couple of recalls and numerous oil changes. Now I'm getting the infamous rust on the hood edge. For a five year old vehicle, I've spent more money for repairs than any other vehicle I've owned in the same amount of time. I have the 3.8 v 6 and always wish I had a more responsive engine/trans combo. Conclusion, For comfort, it can't be beat, for performance and better reliability, look elsewhere or you'll be spending a lot of time at the dealership for "little" things.
A good car
I had previously owned a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan and while I enjoyed the creature comforts of the vehicle there were several nagging problems with it. the windshield wipers didn't work properly, and it had a history of major repairs that often left us stranded. After doing due diligence I discovered that my best bet was another Dodge Grand Caravan. The deal maker is the drive train. no intervention engine, supposedly the transmission issues have been solved and the 3.8 engine seems to be a very solid engine. I also love the stow and go seats. In my old van I had to take seats out and then put them back in all the time. With this vehicle, a few seconds and everything is ready to go, or be restored. The downside is that they've cheapen up the interior considerably. No fabric on the doors, all plastic now, fewer functions on the overhead display and just generally cheaper. That said, if the engine in this pup holds out as long as the old one and gives the same levels of comfort, it will have been a good purchase.
Have owned 3 grand caravans. Only brand I will buy. If you want a van that is moderately priced, low maintenance and has a great resale value you need to buy a grand caravan. Handles great, looks great and gets great mileage for a larger vehicle.
