I bought a used 1999 Dodge Caravan. It has 167,000 miles on it, a V-6 3.0 I payed $ 2405.00 out the door. I have spent around $600, but that was for 2 tires, a tune up the normal stuff. Past that I like it. Seats 7.

Have had constant trouble with both sets of brakes. Suspension leaves alot to be desired. Tranny lasted over 100,000 miles. Had it rebuilt. Cruise control problem early on. Tried to change sparkplugs at 100,000 miles. Couldn't get to the one in the rear on pass. side. Don't have a creeper or a lift and am not a contor- tionist. Had to pay an independent $23 to do it! Old models had fuel filter under the pass. door panel. On my '99 you must drop the fuel tank to reach it. Another $50 for labor! Looked at the new base models. Cheaper interiors, lack of features. Have had a Chrysler mini-van since their first model year. Bye-bye Dodge Caravan, Hello Toyota Sienna!

Speed sensor went bad at 14K and 60K
miles (trans doesn't shift without it).
New brake pads and rotors at
20K, more brake pads at 40K and 65K,
master cylider replaced at 80K -- too
many brake system problems too often.
Drove the van for 50K before getting
worried each time it was driven.
Looking forward to trading it in

This is a 1999 2.4 litre 4 cyl minivan.
Had 67000 on clock when we bought
it. In 2 years it has never let us down.
Apart from regular routine
maintenance we have replaced the
brakes (inc new front rotors) and the
shocks and struts. Good to drive on
the highway with excellent gas
mileage. You feel the lack of power
only with 4 or more people in the car.
Now has 87000 on clock and still
going strong. A very good general
