  • What's New for 1996

    A complete redesign yields a cavernous interior, best-in-class driveability and new innovations such as the optional driver-side passenger door. And although the all-wheel-drive version is discontinued for now, Caravan dethrones the Ford Windstar and once again reigns as king of the minivans.

It's but better than the

Vehicle: 1995 Dodge Grand Caravan

I have had fewer issues with this 14 year old van than I had with my 4 year old van. In my opinion although not perfect they are a good BEATER van as long as they were maintained properly when new. I have 2 more of these vans plus another one in my family as well. as long as you get a 3.3 w/o abs or rear climate control you have a reliable van for as long as the transmission is maintained PROPERLY. Most people do not use the correct fluids in the transmission so it fails. I am lucky in that all of mine have good engines and transmissions plus these vans are cheap to buy. Just don't get a 3.0 powered one.




Bad van

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Dodge Grand Caravan

This van was given to us by my father-in-law when it was 12 years old with 71,000 miles. It had been well maintained and always garaged. I first noticed that the power rear windows only worked some time, the rear windshield wiper motor was out and the electric liftgate opener did not work. In the year we owned it the water pump, drivers side window motor, and the front wiper motor had to be replaced. Then the track on the sliding side door door broke and the side window latch came apart. When the transmission went out at 82,000 miles the van went to the junk yard. I should have known because I had the same experiences with the 96 Caravan I bought new.




Experiences with a caravan

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Dodge Grand Caravan

I'd wanted a Caravan since 1988 when I first drove cross-country from California to Connecticut. Fourteen years later I had my car. It has been very good to me for five years. In the past few months however, the interior lighting system has gone awry, the transmission slips badly when starting up in the morning, the headlights have become dim due to discoloration of the lenses, but it is still a good riding car, with 203,000 miles on the odometer. I'm looking now for a newer model because I've heard from friends and relatives that they've continued with Dodge through the years.




From our view point

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Dodge Grand Caravan

We were the only owners of this vehicle and never had any trouble with it. Other than normal wear-and-tear repair/maintenance work we did not need to have any major work done on it. A truly great van for the family that took us 207,000 miles. We loved it so much that we bought a new one to replace it!




My caravan

Overall great vehicle. Could have done better with the transmission, and the paint shouldn't peel off in whole sheets. If you are willing to recondition the transmission and repaint after 5 years, it's worth keeping.




Good value, following repairs

Vehicle: 1995 Dodge Grand Caravan

New transmission after 36000 miles. Covered by Chrysler. Starter replaced. Body in excellent shape after 8 years. Interior like new. Well kept.Have never had MAJOR problems as car has followed the manufactures service book. Chrysler has been more than supportive of their product. Oter than transmission, only minor, normal repairs, brakes, tires, etc. Has been an excellent investment for the past 8 years.
