1995 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


My parents bought new in 95. It has been through the family a couple of times. It's had regular maintenance. We had lifetime oil changes from the dealer, but they changed it from 3k to 7.5k, so it's about 1 out of every 3 oil changes are free. It burns 1 - 1.5 quarts of oil in between oil changes. The transmission was replaced at 150k and it had metal in it at 250k. It's having problems again, but it has 293k miles. If you change the oil ever 3k miles, brakes and tires it will run forever. I'm on my 3rd driver seat and the fr passenger is wobbly. The tapedeck quit (replace w/ CD) and the A/C went out ($1,000 fix, not worth it). Window motor peters out, only goes 3" down.

Best Features

Strong 3.0 V6 that gets good gas mileage and power. Overall, it's a dependable vehicle with regular maintenance.

Worst Features

Make a stronger seat and improve the transmission to last as long as the motor does! Make the A/C easier to fix.
