2013 Dodge Grand Caravan

This is our third Dodge Grand Caravan. We needed a big, solid vehicle that can seat 7 (we have 5, plus grandma and grandpa now and then) and in a decent price range. Sienna, Odyssey, Pilot, even Mazdas were out of our price range. With good credit, low interest rate and longer term, we can probably swing this. It's still the big heavy mini van as expected. Mileage not super, but what do you expect. The new design is an improvement over the old. Looks more like an SUV now than a minivan. More stylish. We got it for practical reasons and the price. We felt our 2005 was fairly reliable and mostly low maintenance. We hoping for more of the same with this one.

I brought my 2013 Dodge Caravan in November 2012. About a week later the transmission made a loud thumping noise violently shaking the van when I shifted into drive. The Chrysler Origanization said this was a 'operational design characteristic' and refuses to fix the problem.

2013 Grand Caravan Crew with a 220ci DOHC V6 Engine producing 283HP. Talk about a family hauler with some power! Great fuel efficiency. Visibility is excellent for being a larger vehicle. Very easy to commute to the city and travel with a large family in this vehicle. Truly is worth the money. Exterior and Interior styling looks and feels great. It doesn't have that "Soccer Mom Van" feel or look to it. Always reliable and fun to drive. I could spend hours in a Caravan.

Just bought this van a week ago and sorry I didn't buy it sooner.Have tried most all others and wasn't completely satisfied . This van has power to spare and feels sturdy when driving it. The navigation system is a great addition and very appropriate on the parking lots.

We bought a slightly used ( less than 4K) 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan. We laugh that with Stow-Go, we actually have a covered pick up. We've transported children, sports gear and sheetrock. Love the interior and power gate & doors. Yes, it's a minivan, but it's a great minivan.

Enjoying the scenery while driving thanks to the big windows! Interior space is well done and no bumping into elbows of passengers and good head room for a tall driver 6'... The cloth seats are well made to support my lower back. I no longer need the back support made for me to drive in my old car. Smooth handling in the steering. I get 19 mpg in the city and 23mpg with air con. Running on freeway. Must use 87octane gas. 5000 miles till next oil change. Plus I'm saving 40$ a year on insurance! Go figure. I love this car...the ease of the fold-down seats is incredible and we love the "well" with the grocery bag hooks to keep stuff from sliding around. Plenty of cup holders and hidden compartments for stowing things make it a warehouse on wheels.

Up till 2014 I've owned mostly small sedans. I needed a larger vehicle and when I saw the sale which basically amounted to 30% off, I jumped. I had to stick to a specific price point to I took the Canadian Value Package, the entry level van. Not too many bells and whistles, A/C, heated power mirrors, automatic day/night mirror, sirius satellite radio. I opted for the extended warranty and the electronic rust proofing. I have loved this vehicle. 4 x 8 sheets of plywood, roofing tiles, or 7 people and lots of stuff, this van does it all and does it comfortably. Front seats are very comfortable, even the 2nd row bench (in this trim level) is comfortable, the 3rd row is nice, you're kind of cocooned with cup holders and nooks and crannies for stuff. The 3.6 L six is rated one of the world's best engines. Lots of power, no hesitation even with 7 people and the cargo space behind the 3rd row seats full of gear. I'm not a big fan of the 6 speed transmission, although it works better after the local Dodge dealer did a firmware upgrade. Winter time up here means lots of cold and snow, and this van has a great heater, and with a good set of winter tires and the included traction control, it's actually pretty good in the snow. The Eco mode for the transmission is a wasted effort, the transmission shifts to the higher gears quickly and is noticeably reluctant to downshift, so I'm not a fan. A fuel efficiency gauge or light would've been better. Fuel economy is normal for vehicle of this size, almost 17 ft long and 6050 lbs. To sum up, more comfortable than the competition, big, powerful, roomy, versatile, I'll go for the back up cameral the next time, otherwise, it's an great all purpose vehicle.
