1996 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


Last car, Dodge Colt. Had it for 10 years. Thought the Caravan would be the same. Mistake! Came with defective window seals dumping water on the passenger side floor when it rained 1st 1000 miles-oil leak and shift indicator broke stranding me 100s of miles from home. Belts don't last. I've lost track of the number of times I've replaced them. One broke without warning. I've had oil leaks, antifreeze leaks, squishy brakes and occasional stalls. At 85,000 miles the windshield wipers turn on intermittently, the belts are squeaking, the brakes need to be replaced again, the horn is broken, and the airbag has been recalled. I'm not bothering to repair it

Best Features

Sturdy in accident. Was rear-ended while stopped in traffic by a pickup truck going 60mph. $2,500 damage- replacing the bumpers and beating out rear door. Of course the airbag was defective and did not deploy when I was pushed into the car in front of me.

Worst Features

Everything under the hood. All of it. I was a loyal customer. I will never buy Chrysler again.
