Review of the 2003 Dodge Caravan

  • Enjoyable to drive and ride in, the Caravan offers no-frills minivan transport for the family on a tight budget.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Surprisingly agile handling, quiet ride for V6 models, low price.

  • Cons

    Some cheap interior bits, limited features and options, reliability record not as strong as some competitors.

  • What's New for 2003

    A new trim level dubbed "CV" has been added. The bargain-basement, four-cylinder-only "eC" model (extra-cheap?) has been dropped, but we doubt its passing will be mourned.

Very happy with 2003 caravan

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Caravan CV Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is our 3rd van, and it has been terrific. 3 teenage sons all learned to drive on it, so there has been bodywork done, but no major repairs have been needed. :) have always had recommended maintenance carried out on schedule, though. It starts in -35 degree weather without being plugged in (it's in Canada) and air conditioning works like a dream when we have +80 f temperatures. It has been ideal with two kids playing sports and lots of trips to out-of-town games. This is my third Dodge caravan, the first being a 1983, the second a 1999, and I would buy another anytime. Great family vehicle, affordable, good mileage. Very practical vehicle.




13 mpg

Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Caravan CV Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Clunky shifts from transmission 3.3liter only gets 13 mpg (60% city-40% highway) front end parts don't last.

Prior Caravan owner. Feel the 3.3 engine is the most proven and reliable. The SXT package is awsome. Only Fault Chrysler has in its interior design is the column shift when in drive is right in the way of the Stereo volume control.
