We have spent almost $4500 in less than a year on our van. The heating and cooling system went out twice. We had to repair bushings that should not have failed so quick. The interior and the options are excellent. The video entertainment system rocks! Yes, we bought the van used but it only had 72,000 miles on it. It was bought locally and we are the second owners. You know buying a house is the biggest investment a person makes. Buying a car is second. Why do the big 3 automakers get away with fading paint, rusted doors, and vans like ours that breakdown at the drop of a hat!!! I’ll never buy from the big 3 again. The KIA Sorento is my next vehicle. I put 200,000 miles on our old Sorento without going to the shop once. 2008 was the first year for the Dodge Grand Caravan. STAY AWAY!!! Pick another year but not the 2008!! Also, you can’t check the transmission fluid. The dealer has to check it and it costs around $75!!
Very friendly staff, worked with Miguel, attentive and accommodating. Nice variety of cars, willing to let you test drive as many as you like. No pressure to buy. Only downside paperwork took long time, come prepared with all necessary info.
Great reliable, affordable and comfortable minivan

My husband and I bought a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan SE new in April 2016 in Puyallup WA just before our son was born in May. It's been perfect for getting a newborn in his carseat carrier in and out of the car. We've transported a full couch in it with all seats stowed except the seat our baby's carseat was on. In April 2018 we traveled cross country from WA to PA, through mountains going up to Mount Rushmore. Then in September 2018 from PA to FL. During both travels we were fully loaded down in the minivan and towing a Jeep Patriot fully loaded down. We never had any problems with this vehicle. We loved it so much that we just traded it in for the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT with all the upgrades.

I bought a car in July from Bill, didn???t have the best credit, ended up leaving in a nice 2016 Elantra. A week ago I totaled that car so I knew 100% that I was going back to Bill! Today I am leaving in a beautiful 2016 Buick Verano! I couldn???t be happier with the experience and the car! Thanks again bill!! 10/10 recommendation
Stow n' go seating is the bomb!

Traded my 2008 for this 2017 and the difference is remarkable..the 3.6 motor is a gem, with class leading power and smoothness along with better mileage..hauls everything.. tows my trailer and with the stow and go seats dropped into the floor...other minivans are not even close by lacking this convenience. My nxt is the nicest vehicle I have owned in my 50+ years of driving.
Miguel was my salesman he listened to what I wanted what my budget was and picked a car out for me came in another day test drove car it and loved it. I actually felt bad with him having to deal with me but he was fantastic !!! Great experience would highly recommend this dealership. Never had the pressure put on me to buy anything. It???s like I was shopping with my friend :) thanks Miguel ;)

It's big. It's safe. It's extremely reliable. Unbelievable value. Ask anyone that owns one. Your wife will love it. Don't spend 10K more for an SUV. Save the money.
Everyone that my husband and I encountered at this dealership was friendly and helpful. We are very happy with our 2017 CPO Kia Optima purchase! We dealt directly with Carl Madonna and Johnny Taylor, both of whom were very knowledgeable and patient in answering all our questions. They are a pleasure to deal with, and we look forward to our future business relationship with this company.
practical fun to drive and economical to run

I use the stow and go feature a lot more than I thought I would. I average about 22 mpg with a mix of on and off highway driving
The Salesman Gee was very helpful. He explain everything to me and my daughter. The customer service was A+. If I have to buy another used car I will be going back to East Coast Car Mart.
Better mileage, roomier than expected
by Any evidence for that claim? from Burlington, Vermont

So far, this minivan has exceeded my expectations. Better mileage than I expected- 23 mpg- those are not highway miles. A 4 x 8 sheet of plywood fits in the back easily with the seats stowed. My Mountain bike fits easily standing up.
Anthony was an awesome help in obtaining our new Jeep! He was easy to work with, friendly, not a typical salesman! He was able to get us to where we wanted to be with payments and we appreciate his efforts! Love our new Jeep Cherokee!

I never used to like minivans but now that I own one I don't know how I lived without it. Plenty of leg room, comfy seats, seats 7 so we can take the grandkids in one vehicle. It has the stow n go seats so I can still haul things. Absolutely loving it!!
My experience here was wonderful. It was my first time buying a car of my own and I didn't feel pressured into anything. They walked me through the whole process, and I felt like I got a great deal. Mike, the salesman, was so helpful and accomodating. I definitely recommend this dealership!

I have had Kia's.. I have had Hyundais. this dodge is the best car I have had. I would recommend this car to anybody. and I got the car at Subaru of Port Richey. Great salesman.
My Experience at Sands was the way it should be at every dealership! I'm that tough customer who contemplates and perseverates until I find exactly what I want. Looking for a used car, I am glad my final decision ended with a warm and welcoming dealership such as Sands. Joe Lyons was pleasant, professional and extremely helpful Between Joe, Matt and Chris my experience was flawless. They did everything right to make it work for me with in my budget! I will definitely be recommending Sands! Everyone there was great! On a side note thanks to Jimmy Mack for making me laugh!
Finally a vehicle that fits all of my needs.

Easy to use store-able (stock) roof rack system.
Could use more USB and/or lighter ports, but easily upgraded.
Lot's of after market things to upgrade the SXT and GT models.
We had our Jeep breakdown while we were 3 1/2 hours from home. We called Sands service department because we knew it should be under warranty. They were so helpful and amazing that we knew we would come here to buy our next car! We were not disappointed!
Reliable in cold & snow or all weather

Great for big families,
Lots of room for carseats, kids & babies
Better & more convenient than SUV
Tons of room for storage & packing items
Perfect height kids can climb into themself
Sliding door is perfect for putting in baby carseat and kids when someone parks to close beside u.
I had positive experiences with all the folks I dealt with at Sands. They were professional and did not have a high pressure sales process. I felt like we were partners working towards a common goal of getting me the vehicle I wanted. I dealt with some other dealers before purchasing with Sands and I'm glad I choose them. Thanks Joe Lyons!
The best vehicle that fits our needs
by Carol from London

Mobility and enough room to travel. The van has a very nice sleek look and came with much more options than the one we traded in. Just love it.
Greg helped us to decide not only which vehicle fits our lifestyle and needs the best, but he also explained all of our financing options clearly so that we could make the best choice for our budget as well. Friendly and knowledgeable, Greg and the staff welcomed us to their dealership in a manner that was appropriate and not pushy. We left driving away very happy in our new Grand Cherokee. Greg helped us to pair and set up all of our technology. He also went over all of the features of our upgraded vehicle so we felt confident driving it.
Great van for a family with kids
by Paul G. from Rochester, NY
December 25, 2018
We looked at several vans before buying the Dodge Grand Caravan GT. We got some options including heated seats and steering wheel. This has been a wonderful car for our kids and the stow-away seats allow as much space in the back as most truck beds. It rides smoothly and has many features that older vans do not, including back-up camera and navigation system built in. We recommend this vehicle to anyone interested in lots of storage. So far, we love it.
Took my jeep in on a Saturday morning because I was heard a noice under the right wheel well that didn't sound right. I didn't expect them to be able to give me a full diagnostic that morning based on timing. But they did and was able to schedule me in for that Wednesday (which was yesterday ) and got the job done. Derek was great to work with!
Dodge grand caravan

I love everything about it. It has enough room for my family and is still a luxury vehicle. I never thought I never thought I would fall in love with a mini van
They're doing renovations so four stars for now. Both sales and service treated me well. I would recommend them to anybody looking for a good used car. They saved me thousands
Excellent for our needs
by Popo from Worland, WY

This vehicle body style hasn’t been updated in more than 10 years. It’s basically a cargo van with seats. But it has stow and go so the entire area behind drivers seat can be made into a cargo area or in our case for our dogs to take trips in. The only other newer van that does this is the Chrysler Pacifica and there are very few used ones available in a reasonable price range so this vehicle was a good choice as an alternative.
I highly recommend Piazza Mitsubishi. I was originally looking for a used car and decided to look at the new cars. This is my first new car purchase so I was really nervous at first but my salesman made me very comfortable an did not pressure me.
This car is the worst vehicle I've ever own.

After the warranty everything is braking, it is two years old, and I've had to put almost 3,000 in it really bad on the road.
