I purchased this minivan in 2013. This 2001 model has 136000 kms on it, since then the only problem was the key was stuck in the ignitor and a part had to be replaced for 200$, once i entered the wrong fuel in the van but got it drained later on and had no problems. Its a great family hauler at a very affordable price. Good value for money. Less repairs. Had a 2000 model before this which also ran good
Bought my 01 Sport in 02 with 16,000 miles.
It was my second Caravan.
3.3 liter got 24mpg at 2200rpm on the highway.
Replaced the alternator at 25k.
A/C at 150k.
Transmission at 211K (never changed the fluid).
Plugs once, brakes once, front window motors once.
Regular synthetic oil changes.
Got t-boned at an intersection by a red-light runner!
Van had 231,000 miles.
Up to that point my van ran great.
Was hoping to go 300,000.
But it was not to be.
Will pick up another 01 Sport tomorrow.
Nothing but good things to say about this Dodge.
Fuel economy, comfortable ride on long trips, quiet efficient powerful engine.
I bought it a year ago with 155k miles , have not made any repairs but regular maintance oil changes,.
I put in a KN air intake and it gives me 22 plus MPG.
I really like it,
runs great can't even feel the motor running. Great family vehicle, plan on trading it for a newer model.
I was really suprise a dodge could deliver a great review.
needs CD player came with casset player.
needs third header lamp it gets kind of dark at the rear seating. it would be great if the floor carpet could be vinyl/plastic. No more messy carpet stains.
Bought this van as a second owner.
Previous owner put 200,000 highway miles on it.
We bought it for a song and haven't looked back.
Other than tires, oil change and a waterpump, the "Puddle Jumper" hasn't let me down.
She is wonderful.
Planning on taking it to Colorado this fall.
Its 1,289 miles from home one way! She's going in the garage to get a "look over" within a month.
My van is wonderful.
Going to get handed down to my 16 yr old son after he gets his license.
Reliability!! Never had a car like this.
She just keeps going and going.
The second Caravan I've owned, this one, bought used, is reliable, comfortable, and a great service vehicle for any task I've used it to accomplish. It is great on the highway and offers reasonable gas efficiency. At 145,000 and going strong, I still have miles to go with regular maintenance. It is truly my road warrior! The only problem I ever had is with a wacky onboard computer that had to be replaced (twice, since the first one from manufacturer was also faulty). My private mechanic was great; the dealership I had to order through was difficult to work with and proved to be a ripoff!!
Versatility in configuration -- I can transport a full carload of adults; kids and pets; groceries; luggage or heavier hauls and even furniture!
Lighter rear seats and a fold down middle bench. They're somewhat difficult to remove and reinstall on my own.
