2006 Dodge Caravan SE 4dr Minivan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Bought a demo with 8k, 3.3 litre SE. Live 80 km north of Winnipeg so almost all hwy use. Have over 50k, not a single problem, get 9 litres/100km, hwy (31 mpg Imperial, 26 US). Took out the back seats and put in a hinged bed for camping. This is my 2nd Chrysler mini-van; 1st a Plymouth w/ 3 litre engine. Did 110k on that one with only tires, brake pads and battery required. Paid $18,000.00 for Caravan, Sienna would have been almost double. Looking forward to the plug- in hybrid model. Can't understand why some say they only get 16 hwy; these vans are made on an assembly line; should be fairly consistent. I baby my vehicles, so may be a connection there. Keep oil and air filter clean. Tnx.
I don't buy a vehicle for frills so if professional reviewers want to find fault with trim, all I can say is "Get a life"; this van is functional, reliable and relatively inexpensive.
Only complaint is that you have to duck your head a little getting into the front seats - no big deal though.
