Best vehicle I've ever owned
By John B on
1999 Dodge Caravan SE 4dr Minivan
I bought this van when it was a year old and had 47,000 miles on it. It's been an excellent van. Our Grand Caravan SE has the quad seat option, so it's very comfortable for long-distance driving. The AC is very effective, even in high-90s heat, which we have a lot of in Tennessee. The rear air, if anything, is too effective, as we often hear complaints that it's too cold in the back. Hauling capability is a big plus too, with the removable rear seats. A 4x8 sheet of plywood will lie down in the back, not to mention smaller items. I've tried to keep up with regular maintenance in accordance with the owner's manual. I think it's paid off.
Quad seats; rear AC; removable rear seats; hauling capacity; good instrument layout; good visibility; nice-looking design.
Come up with an engine compartment layout that will make spark plugs easier to change. Improve gas mileage on the 3.3L V6.
