1997 Dodge Grand Caravan ES 4dr Minivan

Review

We had an older boxy-style (1994) Caravan, and when we bought the new model, my wife said it was the best "car" she ever owned. Smoother body panels are very appealing. Seats remove easily (although are heavy to lift). You can lay a 4x8 sheet of plywood flat inside when seats are out (very handy). Mileage was about 18 city/ 25 highway - great for a van. Body lean on curves is a little annoying, but expected for a tall vehicle. Well designed layout. Tall seats are very comfortable. Visibility is great.

Favorite Features

Removable seats, lots of cargo room, dual sliding doors, reliable engine. Extra storage drawer under passenger seat. Wide back hatch opening.

Suggested Improvements

Driver's side strut tower rusts easily and is a $200 repair. Driver's CV shaft is also prone to breaking. Otherwise, great car! Passenger seat has back/forth adjustment (???) - annoying again. Second row seat windows that open would be good (for the dogs).
