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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
this is a very reliable van with cold
a/c and even though it's not very
quick, it is very reliable. 150,000
miles and the 2.5 liter 4 cyl. engine
runs like a top. I've heard the 6 cyl.
is plagued with problems!
I have a 1993 Caravan with a 6L engine (don't know size) that has almost 120,000 miles. I love the van, but it has been diagnosed with a leaky valve in #6 cylinder and my (independent) mechanic says ...
