12 Years and Counting
By Don on
1993 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 3dr Minivan
After 12 years, 158K miles, and only the second transmission, I really can't complain. No rust or squeaks, captain's chairs are still comfortable, and we still get over 25 mpg on a trip. Couldn't have refinished my basement without it (hauled a lot from Home Depot). Still pulls a trailer easily. One odd thing happened this past winter when I closed the driver's door and the rear tailgate window shattered. First transmission died at 69K miles, but was covered without question by the dealer under 7/70 warranty. Second transmission is doing fine. Radio went 4- 5 years ago; replaced it with a CD player. Never did any work on power accessories. Plan to keep it until it drops.
Good mpg, fits 4x8 plywood flat, fits 10 foot studs with gate closed, is comfortable on trips
More legroom up front. Hard on tires (alignment seemed to go out often).
