Review

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.


Favorite Features

Sits high like a truck, very comfortable ride.


Suggested Improvements

More powerful A/C.

Review

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!


Favorite Features

Removable seats to make room for my 2 Labs' crates.


Suggested Improvements

Need heavier suspension to bear more weight. Overhaul the brake systems. Make it easier for the do-it-yourselfer. This is all by design. Why let a person do it himself when the dealer can charge you $60 an hour for labor?

Review

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 tonight!


Suggested Improvements

The entire brake system needs major improvement and needs to be more robust.

Review

THIS IS A WONDERFUL VEHICLE!!!! iT'S JUST THE RIGHT SIZE, NOT TOO SMALL NOT TOO BIG...THE ONLY THING i WISH i HAD WAS POWER LOCKS....ITS A AGGRIVATING TO HAVE TO MANUALLY LOCK EACH DOOR, BUT i STILL LOVE IT AND DONT REGRET BUYING IT AT ALL.


Favorite Features

GOOD GAS MILEAGE, HAS LITTLE HOOK TYPE THINGS ON THE FAR BACK SEAT TO HANG YOUR GROCERY BAGS ON SO THEY DONT SLIDE, TILT, OR ROLL ALL OVER....i THOUGHT THAT WAS A NICE TOUCH


Suggested Improvements

CANT THINK OF ANY :)
