This is not the first Chrysler Van that we have owned. All in all the only thing that worries me about the van is the transmission (4-spd auto) whichis known to be trouble. Fuel economy is very poor, well below the Chevy Venture. But all in all, this van is worth the extra money at the pump. Ride quality, design, and comfort is tops with us. We have owned 1993-2002 Chrysler vans and have enjoyed and have had good luck with all (trading most in with mileage above 150,000). We all reall love our Caravan!
Definiltly the engine, quiet and powerful. Interior design is superb! Exterior is attractive, and the van rides smooth.
Transmission. Although it is very quiet, and shifts without even noticing, attention needs to be given to its reliability.
