Mechanical Lemon, Regret Buying
By chrzanow on
2006 Dodge Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
This car is a LEMON.
70,000 miles entire navigation and panel unit failed.
100,000 miles alternator died, transmission aux unit blew out, radiator failed, lots of oil leaks.
120,000 miles another alternator died, retractable doors fail, plastic parts on stow and go seats failed causing seat frame to not stow, cooling system leaking, and now warning lights keep coming on and off (ABS, airbag, etc) for no reason.
This car is junk.
I will NEVER buy a Dodge product again.
I should have learned with my 1998 Caravan.
That carís transmission blew out at 100,000.
Now at 150,000 the computer keeps dying and not allowing the car to start.
Interior style is nice.
Improve design quality.
Stop making a car that will nickle and dime me to death.
Well it's mid 2013 now and I guess I got a better one than you as I'm closing on 100k on the odometer and only the water pump replacement to speak of to date. Just put a new set of Michelins on the ol' gal and plan to keep her for several more years.
