Goodbye, Old Friend
By MinnesotaBob on
1994 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan
This was a great family car. Comfortable on
long trips, yet nimble enough to drive around
town. It sure came in handy, too, for those
couple times a year when I went to the lumber
yard, or my wife went to a garage sale. It
treated us pretty well except for two cracked
heads ($1600 each), one at 65K, and another
at 103K. Just came back from donating it to a
place that'll fix it up and give it to a needy
person. Even with that major engine problem,
there's more right with it than wrong. We
thought about buying another minivan, but
since our kids are pretty much grown now, we
opted for a sedan instead.
Sit up high--good visibility, interior space,
pretty comfortable for a "truck". This was the
most basic version of this vehicle--I liked the
fact that I could fix many things myself.
Make an engine that doesn't crack heads every
50 or 60 thousand miles.
