1996 Dodge Caravan LE 3dr Minivan

Review

The design is very innovative, however the quality and reliability left a lot to be desired. We purchased a 7 year 100k mile Dodge warranty and used it. Multiple major problems with the transmission (4) including a complete replacement, cooling system, A/C (5) and a belt tenioner that fails like clockwork every 20K miles since new. Many more less critical problems too numerous to mention here. Except for being beat to death with $50 warranty deductables after 36k miles long warranty enabled us to keep the car longer than we would have if we were footing the bills.

Best Features

Drivers side sliding door. Easy out bench seats.

Worst Features

Move the location of the dash power outlet. It hits the drivers knee when any power adapter is plugged in. Body has too much flex. Improve reliability of components.
