1997 Dodge Grand Caravan ES 4dr Minivan


Bought new 1997 Grand Caravan SE with 5-year, 100k service. Great ride, good mileage, modest power, seats easy to remove/install, huge cargo capacity. Changed oil every 3k and followed service schedule at dealers for the first five years. Headaches (all after warranty): A/C compressor and dryer died, front rotors replaced, still act "warped". (Dealer) Battery recently shorted and damaged the starter. Phantom wipers, console rattle, "heavy" sliding door. Planning to sell before I loose my first transmission.

Best Features

Driver-side sliding door, cargo capacity, good ride.

Worst Features

Mechanical and build quality. Brigts are a joke. I'm afraid of loosing the transmission like so many others. I think my problems are just beginning.
