1992 Dodge Caravan 3dr Cargo Minivan


Review

Bought it used from truck dealer, cargo minivan with 3.0 l v-6, and more reliable 3 speed transmission. Ugly but generally reliable. Not that good of gas mileage for such a small van, but useful for small catering business. Almost zero resale value when traded for full size pickup, given the reputation of 4 speed trannies on these vehicles. Had an earlier 3.0 l v-6 passenger van with 4 speed and was rebuilt or repaired three times under warranty. Would not purchase Chrysler product again after that lemon, but this cargo van was cheap and didn't have that terrible trans.

1992 Dodge Caravan SE 3dr Minivan


Review

Easy to maintain Lasted 252,000 miles and still is going. Never was rebuilt. Comfortable seating, plenty of room. A great car, considering it's sat for over 4 years, and is now going to be my daily driver.


Best Features

The space. The fact it's lasted 252,000 miles and still is going! Can get going pretty quickly, too! (3.3 L v6 well maintained)


Worst Features

Stronger transmissions for the 3.3/3.8's Can't really tow much with it.

1992 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


Review

While it is a practical vehicle, there are some design flaws that have proven costly. I've had multiple blown head gaskets (costly repair) that apparently are the result of incompatible metals used in the pistons and the cylinders. There were numerous other repairs, but the heag gasket is the back breaker. I would not recommend this vehicle or any Dodge van from the 1990's.

1992 Dodge Caravan LE 3dr Minivan


Review

Bought it brand new in 1992 - been through 3 fuel pumps, 1 oxygenator thing; kept losing power (took 7 years to find this problem) 1 water pump and numerous smaller things. It's been pretty reliable for 12 years and 95000 miles. It squeals all the time while running causing considerable embarrassment at lights - transmission is starting to slip.


Best Features

Driver cockpit and driving ease - fell in love with it first time I drove it and I still have it. It's a part of me now.


Worst Features

TRANSMISSION

1992 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


Review

We bought this vehicle from a friend who loved it and was getting a good deal on a newer model Caravan. Very few problems and never left me stranded. Lots of seating for our 3 young kids (and their friends) although very cramped in the back for adults.


Best Features

Changeable rear seating. Built in child seats have been useful even when our kids outgrew them (occasional young riders). Good driving visibility


Worst Features

More leg room in back. More vent/temperature control. Better sound ststem. Less road/air noise... Floor to ceiling 3/4 " plexiglass soundproofing behind front seats and one way intercom to give parents some needed peace and quiet (just a suggestion...)
