We purchased this van with 88,000 miles on it and now 7 yrs later it has 219,000.It's our family car so any where I go she goes. We've never replaced the engine or transmission. My Dodge has been a very reliable vehicle!! I love the room in it. It handles great! I've hauled a few bales of hay and always get my feed for the horses in it. I can't say anything very bad about it. We've replaced the drive axles on both sides and that's the most we've had in repairs. The transmission is giving a few problems now but we watch the fluid and do not use overdrive which isn't as good on mpg. We are starting to look for a different car but I hate to give up my Dodge, I love it!
The clearance underneath is pretty good, tight steering, handles the curves great. It's been a great engine (3.0)good power and plenty of speed.
I would improve the air conditioning ducts or put in rear heat/air. The speakers could be better.
I bought this thing brand new. I was
very pleased at first. This was my
second Dodge brand auto I had bought
new and should have known from the
first one that the quality was not
good. I had the 36,000 mile full
warrenty. The transmission went out at
37,000. t $2000 a pop I have had 5
transmissions, some only lasting a
year. Then the electrical has been less

was outstanding and rated in the top 3%
by Consumers reports for funtion and
safety due to proper placement. A very
good feature. The overall utility of
the vehecle can not be denied.
The 4 speed auto transmission needs to
be much better designed. It has been
rated poor by Consumers for years. The
electric is also notorious for its
...buy a Chrysler minivan. Just found
out today that our '93 Caravan needs
ANOTHER transmission....THREE have gone
out on this vehicle. Never, ever again
will I buy another Chrysler product.
Talked with District Rep and
Detroit....they refuse to acknowlege
problem or help in any way.
Solid transportation. Captian Seats for
four are great. Lots of room. Keeps
Always starts, uses no oil, made for
people to fit in. Carries a bunch of
stuff too. May last another 10 years.
Engine power is about 140hp, fair but
could use some more ponies when
everyone is rolling at 90. Way to
noisy at road speeds. New Trans at 30k
under warranty..since then nothing has
broken. Interior trim-plastic is cheap
some minor cracks.
