1996 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan LE 3dr Minivan


Review

We love having a mini van it great and very pratical. Ive put 50k on it, but the van has 148000. Just starting to leek fluid. Only repair was a water pump. Great family vehicle and travel vehicle.


Best Features

Ave 21mpg, lot of room so my three kid don't have to touch each other. I bought it used so we park it any where.


Worst Features

I really had to think, the only one I can think of is......build a screen so I can not hear the kids.

1996 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan SE 3dr Minivan


Review

I bought this car with 96164 miles on it. Except for intermitent wipers I didn't have a sinle problm until I reached around 120000 miles. First, my engine started to leak oil, every 300- 500 miles I have to add 1 quarter. My AC compressor died (don't know what's wrong with it, maybe it's just bearing), power window's electric motor on passenger side burned out, . Don't have problem with transmission.


Best Features

Size - I put the whole 1 1/2 size refrigerator in van


Worst Features

I don't think that they can improve anything. Let them offer 10years/100000 miles warranty, at least.

1996 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan ES 3dr Minivan


Review

This van is nearly perfect, except for one major flaw; the transmission. We had to have it fixed three times and, if I wasn't trading it tomorrow, it would be going in for a fourth time.


Best Features

There are many nice features, but I really like the way it rides.


Worst Features

Put more effort into designing a dependable transmission.

Review

We bought the car used at 45,000 miles. In three years, we've had numerous major repairs including one where the engine had to be totally disassembled. The transmission needed to be replaced at a hefty expense. The radio has been replaced FOUR times in three years. We've also had trouble with the ABS light, cruise control has failed, wipers go on and off spontaneously ... the list goes on. This is the least reliable vehicle we've ever owned, and we can't wait to get rid of it.


Best Features

Drives well ... that is, when it's not in the shop for repairs.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. More reliable.
