I bought my 1998 Caravan SE a little over a year ago and have had no problems at all. The first thing I did when I got it was to have the tranny flushed. With Dodge, my mechanic recommends every 20,000 miles. Lots of cargo space with the seats removed. I do wish the gas mileage was better. This is my 3rd van but the first with 4 doors and I love it. It may be almost 8 years old, but it still feels new when you get in. The interior has held up very well. I have thought about going back to a car but don't think I can. SUV's feel too truck like for me. My van gives a very comfortable ride. With less than 50,000 miles on it I think it's a keeper.
The ability to have 7 passengers and the huge cargo space with the seats removed. It's a van that drives like a car. I think it has a very smooth ride.
