1996 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3dr Minivan

Review

Purchased from local dealer with 50k. At this writing (8/11/03) now has 116k Have been happy overall. Some of the reliability issues other raters mentioned have also plagued me on occasion. Luckily, I'm a shade tree mechanic and not scared to tackle the unknown without prints or a tech manual. Have replaced starter, several rotors, brake booster (what a pain!), idler pulley (snapped off while driving), Front and rear AC expansion valve/dryer.Also have intermittent wiper gremlin where pulse wipe quits. Even with all this, my wife loves it and I'd probably get another one if I weren't tiring of the design.

Favorite Features

Seats for comfort and convenience. Carpet for cleanability. Factory privacy glass really works well. Quiet, smooth engine/tranny. (3.3L) Paint quality. Fit/finish for mid-level vehicle is good.

Suggested Improvements

Electrical systems seem problematic. 1. gremlin in pulse wipers 2. occasionally the van just dies, no warning or idiot lights ... just quits.
