Has been very good

1994 Dodge Caravan SE 3dr Minivan
Caravan SE bought in 1994 with 10k miles from Thrifty Car Rental. Has been a very good car. 3.3 is peppy and fairly economical. Nice and roomy. Not 'sexy' but love the practicality. I don't use the third seat since I usually don't have passengers. Had a starting problem a few times and replaced starter. Air bag light came on but it was just fuse #13. No problems, just regular maintenance. A friend bought a '96 and had many major problems. Strangely, this Caravan has been more reliable than Honda and Toyota of same year/mileage in the family!
I like the body style better than the newer ones. Good, peppy engine. Comfortable to get in and out. Roomy.
Turning radius is bad - turns on a dinner plate instead of a dime! Have to swing as wide as possible when doing a U turn. Heater could be better (I'm in Alaska). Backup lights aren't bright enough, cup holder is too shallow.
