1996 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3dr Minivan

Review

SE 3.0L 3 speed Bought it with 99640 miles on it on 08/2002. Since then, I was free of any problems. Taking care of it, oil changes every 3000 miles, transmission oil every 30k, tune-ups every 50k. And finally, transmission start hard shifting from first to second a week ago. Currently in the shop with $1950 to $2200 bill waiting for fixing transmission - total rebuilt. Plan to drive it for two more years minimum. Engine is still strong. Average is 22mpg. On freeway, with 65mph it reaches 24-25mpg. Rust is everywhere. My friend tells me that soon I will not have to open the door to enter inside :). Construction is still solid.

Favorite Features

Roominess.

Suggested Improvements

Tried new 2010 Dodge minivan. Rear seats are unbelievable. Steep seat and tall passengers hit their back of heads on upper rail trim. Stow and go seats are too short. Headrest hits in the back. Drives like a tank. My 1996 has smoother ride. I do not think my next minivan will be Dodge.
