1999 Dodge Caravan SE 4dr Minivan

Review

This van started with major breakdowns at 15,000 miles and continued with the breakdowns after Chrysler's basic warranty period expired. Some of the major repairs needed were three serpentine belts, two idler pulleys, three trans axle speed sensors, A/C compressor and dryer, A/C evaporator core, three new batteries and a passenger power window motor. The $200 optional clear coat paint job began fading and peeling within 3 years and now looks like crap. The headlight lenses have turned milky white. Felt headliner falling down in a dozen areas. I hate to say it, but the extended warranty would have been a real moneysaver with this car.

Favorite Features

Rides nice, smooth engine performance. Easy access to instruments, nice radio (optional pkg.). Good road handling and view. Transmission and cruise control very smooth.

Suggested Improvements

Better paint/trim quality. Needs longer warranty coverage.
