1992 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3dr Minivan
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.
3.3L Engine -- excellent motor
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.
