Dodge Caravan Transmission Warning
By EW on
Vehicle1993 Dodge Caravan SE 3dr Minivan
ReviewThis was the first of two Dodge Caravan purchases. The 1993 has 192,000 miles and the 1996 has 152,000 miles. Both have the 3.0 engine. In both vehicles, the engines are extraordinarily reliable with VERY FEW repairs. On the other hand, both have needed transmissions within 70,000 miles and each van has had three transmissions (two replacements each). Neither vehicle was used in towing or hill climbing nor have they been overloaded. Both were used for daily commuting on the FLAT Chicago area roadways. If it weren't for the poor transmission quality, these would be outstanding vehicles.
Best FeaturesVehicle size and comfort are impressive. Built in child restraint seats are a nice feature for families. Really like the reliability of the engine and the quality of exterior paint. No body rust after 10 years!
Worst FeaturesFix the chronic transmission problems.
