Me and my family bought a brand new 1998 Caravan with 5 miles on it, and we liked it, for a little while. Head gasket failed at 16,000 miles, had many porblems with A/C, and after replacing every component, me and the dealer got to the point that it just needed an adjusted belt after every winter. after a few more parts replaced, the trans tore apart at 73,000 miles, just slipped into the warrenty. then recently, the car needed 2 rigorus mainance jobs, because the engine would hesesitate, nearly stall, backfire, shake, jiggle, and then the power steering was leaking, and oil is slightly leaking. I regret ever buying this car, and I wished that I just got a Ford Taurus.
Comfy, sleek, contrils are big and easy to use, feels more like a car than a truck
RELIABILITY IS AWFUL! Poorly designed, electrical glitches are getting annoying, impossible to mainance because everyting is crammed together.
I bought the cheapest model I could get (4
cylinder); turned out not to be so
inexpensive. Have loved the utility, design,
looks, comfort, handling, sharp turning of the
vehicle. It has been the worst car I have had
for reliability; on my third transmission,
second ac system has now died, need a
third water pump, etc. The fuel economy is
also suprisingly poor for a 4 cylinder engine
(average about 19 mpg).
Ride, looks, very comfortable front bucket
seats, great turning radius.
This is the worse vehicle I have ever
owned.At 38000 mi.the valve cover
gaskets went. At 78000, the front seals
went. At 93000 m. the head gaskets,
rear seals and water pump went. The
tranny went at 97000. My vehicle before
this was an 88 Jeep Cherokee that had
over heating problems. I would never
consider a Chrysler product ever again.
We had to buy a Camry while we wait for
a tranny so we can sell this lemon.
Great on long trips when new. We used
it as a people hauler.
Chrysler never should have put this
motor with this transmission. (3.0 liter
V6) I won't buy Mitsubishi ever for the
reason they made this motor. Good luck,
Mercedes Benz with trying to fix the
