1992 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan SE 3dr Minivan


Review

20 years old and still going strong
Since I only live 10 minutes from work the miles have been kept low. 120,00 on it now.

Still runs great with plenty of pep from the V-6.

Gas milage averages 14 MPG

Have had it for 13 years and never had an engine or transmission problem with it.

Power windows and front seat all still work.

The speaker wires for the radio have somehow become disconnected.

The only major problem I had was when one of the transaxles broke.

The roof and hood paint peeled as alot of this year model did.

The interior has held up fine except for the the ceiling covering which has come loose a hangs down over the front seats and along the sliding door

Review

I bought this car for $2000 when it
was 11 years old. I needed a vehicle
to transport 7 people and this caught
my eye at a local dealer. I should
have done an extensive check on this
one first. Within 6 months I put $400
into
brakes,rotors,bearings,exhaust,tranny
seals and the still needed to replace
the radiator,thermostat,tires and the
paint is
peeling off in chunks. I have had it
just stop running for no reason at
least twice. The A/C quit on the day I
bought it. The fan stopped running
after replacing radiator. I've had the
reserve on radiator actually boil. The
only thing that has saved me is the
warning alarm that van is overheating.

Review

Bought in '93 w/42,500 miles; now
187,600 miles (3/25/04). Goes through
front brake pads/rotors quite
frequently; usual trans. failure at
132,000 mi. and again at 148,500 mi.
(this time covered under warranty).
Both drive axles replaced at 152,000
and again at 166,000; right hub
assembly replaced at 176,000. Other
items that failed were the water pump,
fuel pump and A/C unit. The 3.3L motor
has been outstanding; doesn't burn oil;
doesn't leak oil. Engine runs like it
did the day we bought the van. We
think we have gotten our money's worth
from it in service and relative comfort.


Best Features

3.3L Engine -- excellent motor Roominess


Worst Features

Transmission (Almost everyone complains about this...is Chrysler hearing this?!) Stowaway seats now have arrived, finally, and the driver slider was certainly needed. Other suggestions is better sound/vibration insulation.

Review

I bought the car when it was a year old
with 43000 miles. The vehicle has been
excellent for getting the kids (who are
now grown) to and from all of their
events and for hauling. When they when
to college this car could not be beat
for room. It has also been great for
getting lumber. You can get a sheet of
plywood in the vehicle lay it down flat
and still close the doors. We now have
200000 miles and it is showing its
age. We replaced the transmission at
134000 miles and the oil pressure is
beginning to be poor. I would like to
keep it for two more years because it
is great for hauling.


Best Features

Great people mover and hauling stuff.


Worst Features

It would be nice if the back of the middle seat folded down like the rear seat, so you would not have to remove the seat as often.

Review

This van had been a pretty good car.
It had a new transmission put in at
about 16000 miles, not unexpected for a
Chrysler van. Needed new Catalytic
converter and starter recently. Rides
very nice and 3.3L has plenty of
power. Inside is quite roomy. I get
22 mpg almost all highway. Paint is
pretty bad, but rust isn't a major
problem. This car still runs great at
218000 miles.


Best Features

ride, power, room


Worst Features

Paint could be better, tranny breaks down too frequently.
