Good family vehicle

ReviewWe bought the Grand Caravan Sport model new and have been fairly satisfied. It has been reasonably reliable(knock on wood). It now has 70000+ miles and still runs and drives good. Issues we have experienced: replaced MOPAR battery twice within first three years (warranty repair), replaced CD player (warranty repair),broken driver side mirror, phantom wipers, water pump replaced recently (not unusual for 70,000 mile car). Amazingly, the exhaust still works good (I usually have to replace a muffler or pipes by now). Car has the 3.3 liter engine and seems a bit weak going up long inclines or passing. Not enough HP and torque for this heavy vehicle.
Best FeaturesThis is a great long haul car with the family. It's comfortable and has lots of room for suitcases and vacation toys. I recently rented a Chryco Town and Country van and like the interior in my 97 better than the 2003 T&C.
Worst FeaturesMore horsepower and torque from existing engine offerings.
