Great Van, Better than Honda & Toyota
By Tim Jessup on
2003 Dodge Caravan SE Fwd 4dr Minivan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Have 45,000 miles of trouble-free miles on this van. Own a 1985 Voyager with 199,000 miles (still have original alternator and most other original components in the 2.2 L engine) and a 1995 Caravan with 140,000 miles (only replaced AC compressor in 12 years). Get over 27 mpg on trips (using Mobil I motor oil. Get 18-20 mpg around town. Gotten better service than coworker who has a 2002 Honda Oddysey and has had transmission, breaks, and AC problems, already with barely 50,000 miles (so much for Honda quality!). Acceleration is smooth and runs well and regular grade gas, unlike many imports. Our van also runs on E85 fuel, though this is not available in our area. I recommend highly for you
Tight turning radius great for parking and u-turns, great mileage (for a minivan) good inside utility, smooth transmission.
Quieter AC. Lockable storage bin under front passenger seat (like older models (1995 for instance) have. Locking gas cap
