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.

Best Features

The price is attractive if you need a basic van, otherwise consider opting for other than the SE base caravan.

Worst Features

Make the 'little extras' that came standard on the 2001 van at least options on the 2003 van.
