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.

2003 Dodge Caravan SE Fwd 4dr Minivan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I OWN THE CARAVAN FOR ABOUT 2 AND 1/2
MONTHS. SO FAR SO GOOD. WE ORIGINALLY
WERE TO PURCHASE AN SUV, BUT REALIZED
IT WOULD NOT FIT OUR NEEDS HAVING TWO
KIDS AND TAKING FRIENDS WOULD NOT BE AS
EASY. WE FEEL IT IS FUN TO DRIVE AND
THE EXTRA SPACE OVER A CAR IS GREAT.
VERY HAPPY WITH OUR PURCHASE.
GROCERY HOOKS IN THE BACK. FOUR
CAPTAINS CHAIRS MAKING TRAVELING VERY
COMFORTABLE FOR EVERYONE
COULD IMPROVE ON WIND NOISE. ALTHOUGH
I WAS TOLD IT IS PROBABLY FROM THE
2003 Dodge Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
Just bought a new 2003 and traded in a
2001. Both were SE vans. The 2003 seems
to be of lower quality and some of the
nice features of the 2001 were
removed/no availible in the 2003 model.
For instance, 2001 van had external key
locks on the back sliders whereas 2003
does not. 2001 SE had a locking drawer
under the passenger side seat, 2003
does not. Seats in the 2003 van do not
seem as well made and the 2003 van
seems more noisy than the 2001. Seems
dodge chose to cut corners on the 2003
model to keep the price low. I can't
help but wonder what other corners were
cut in the building of this van.
The price is attractive if you need a
basic van, otherwise consider opting
for other than the SE base caravan.
Make the 'little extras' that came
standard on the 2001 van at least
options on the 2003 van.
