1997 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan SE 3dr Minivan


Review

Overall great vehicle. Maintainance has been normal and the Dodge dealers I've had to deal with have been great too (I'm military, so have moved around a bit). The engine has held up well and the only real disapointment I've had is that the a/c went bad and had to be replaced. I've been coast to coast and from Florida to New Hampshire with no major probems. Will likely consider a Grand Caravan again.


Best Features

Sport model color and wheels (white). Nice sound system. Comfortable seating for long trips. Cloth seating has help up remarkably well (perfectly), even with my 5 kids.


Worst Features

None

Review

Our van was a solid performer and had great flexibility. Hauled a family of six and luggage on vacation and was able to carry lumber and sheets of plywood after removing the seats. We had fun with our van and are getting a new replacement.


Best Features

Fold down and removable seats. Cup holders for everyone. Drives like a car. Comfortable seating. Reliable performance.


Worst Features

None

Review

We bought our 1997 Grand Caravan used with 26500 miles on it from a dealership. We also bought an extended warranty taking it to 6yrs/75k (only used it once for the starter but it was nice to have peace of mind). Overall it's been a pretty good car with only three problems; starter went out at 50k; brakes; wiper goes on for no reason (not covered on extended warranty).


Best Features

People and cargo capacity


Worst Features

Improve brakes and electronics. Other than that we've been pretty happy with it.

Review

New trans at 50,139--broke without any warning (just over the warranty)but Chrysler did split half the cost. Now we have problem with the AC compressor, wiper going on for no reason at all, engine light comes on for no reason. Not very reliablemechanically but nice vehicle to look at. I would only purchase if you plan on keeping it less than 3 yrs. or if you like to look at in your drive.


Best Features

roominess on interior.


Worst Features

needs to be ore reliable especially since this is a family car.
