1997 Dodge Caravan LE 4dr Minivan


Within 2 years things just started to go wrong: wind noise in the driver's side, which after many attempts it is still not fixed. The wipers go on without anyone touching anything (like there is a ghost). Same thing with the cruise control. The latest is a gas leakeage in the a/c system that will cost $1,200 to fix. It's been one problem after the other. I will never again purchase a Dodge product. To add insult to injury even though I had tried to get the wind noise repaired at the dealer many times during the warranty period and they were not able to fix it, once the warranty expired Dodge pretty much said it was out of their hands!

Best Features

The exterior looks very pretty. Back in 1997 it was "the" minivan to own. Unfortunately (for Dodge) the Japanese (Honda and Toyota) not only have caught up, but their product is now much superior.

Worst Features

Quality and workmanship needs to improve big time.
