1990 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3dr Minivan


Review

Bought the van with 79,000 miles on it in '98 for $6,700. The original trans went at just over 100,000 miles. Got a factory rebuilt tran (big money) and it went went about 15,000 miles out of warrenty so my mechanic found me a used trans and put it in for about $450. No more problems with trans. The Dodge built 3.3L engine now has 272,000 miles on it and it is still going strong. Never had any engine problems. Just the normal routine maintence spread over time, axles, water pump, radiator etc. Over all the van had been very good to me and is the most miles I've ever put on a vehicle.


Favorite Features

3.3L engine, room and utility, easy to change oil and filter


Suggested Improvements

Transmission, paint, squeaks and rattles

Review

This vehicle was always a reliable, safe and enjoyable minivan; up until it hit approx. 125,000. At this time the van started stalling intermittently and with no appearant cause. There seems to be no reason that any mechanic can find as to what is wrong with the engine or why it would stall without any outward signs of there being a problem. I have spent hours online researching this minivan and have realized that this is a very common occurance with Caravans. There is also no 1 general flaw that any mechanic can find. Bottom line-this car will cost you hundred and hundreds of dollars in service charges & a whole lot of frustration and aggravation.


Favorite Features

I love the comfort of this car. I feel safe in the fact that if I was to become involved in an accident there is a very, very good chance that me & my children will walk away from it. That is a great source of security.


Suggested Improvements

Pinpoint the flaw with this engine, and fix it! Even if that means a recall because I know that even though I like my Dodge I wont be buying another anytime soon. Nobody likes to be stranded in the middle of an intersection with a car that has stalled & wont restart.
