1991 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan LE 3dr Minivan


Review

Bought with 110k with new tranny at 95k and now have 210k. Reliability OK, but interior screws falling out panels & rattles, poor suspension-too soft gone through 3 sets of struts. Heating system cuts out & sticks, Never charged A/C, still works good. Motor runs good as it did at 110k, but now leaks alot of oil from main seals, seals were changed at 95k. CV Joints going out for the 1st time. Still gets 18mpg average. Still has original water pump, alternator and starter. Replaced started contacts once.


Best Features

Very reliable, Get 60k on tires, Constant mileage and performance, like the overhead console computer/compus, sound system good. Recomment using only Factory replacement transmission and changing fluid every 30k or less!!!


Worst Features

Prevent transmission failure, Poor shift points, skips 4th. Cruise control- not compatible with transmission, goes 10mph over going up hills, will not go under set point. Sagging rear suspension. Better heating system, Improve Interior loose panels, squeaks. Improve Mileage to 24 aver.

Review

I put 105,000 miles on it in 11 years, all locale driving. Didn't begin to have any major problems until around 100,000 when the tranny began to act up. A very comfortable ride. Plenty of power with the 3.3 and 20 miles to the gallon wasn't bad. Just traded it in.


Best Features

reliability and comfort


Worst Features

many improvements have been made since '91.

Review

I bought it used but in mint condition, My wife and I loved it so much for the first year. It was roomy and very comfortable but nightmare began in the 2nd year. The transmision needed rebuilt only ...3 times and then the engine got overheated 5 times, rear door lift gate broke, starter went dead, alternator stopped working, and on and on.. cost me $ 4000 for maintenance and repair. Finally we traded it in for a Nissan for a very cheap price. This is true! don't buy this van!


Best Features

Nice interior, smooth ride, lots of cargo space


Worst Features

better engine and transmision.

Review

Father was first owner of vehicle. Very reliable and comfortable on trips and daily driving. Minor problems with paint peeling in large sheets. Needed exhaust recently, but nothing bad. No major problems until the transmission had to be replaced THREE times (first covered by warrenty, second half covered and third was paid in full by my father). I inherited this van 2 years ago and now after about 40,000 miles it needs another transmission (not shifting gears). Sadly, I will let it go. Otherwise I do really like it.


Best Features

Easy to drive, comfortable interior with loads of space for packing things in.


Worst Features

Paint, of course, and check those transmissions, makers!!! I would love to keep this vehicle if it was not for that, missing paint and all!
