Great Value, Great Van, Great Economy.

2005 Dodge Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this van with 21,000 miles on it used. Now I have 59,000 on it and it has had no problems. Many of the people I know drive Honda Oddyeses and Toyota Siennas and have many problems from electrical to axle problems. The Honda even lost the transmission at 42,000. My last Dodge Caravan was a 1998 and I just sold it with 213,500 miles on it and I did the transmission at 198,000. The resale isn't better in the long term on the Honda and Toyota product, you just pay more initially and it seems that way. In 5 years they are worth about the same. I sold my '98 caravan for 8k after 7 years of faithful driving.
Economy, power, reliability is bulletproof.
Advertise better. Dodge has a great product but they need to show everyone they really have a superior product.
