1997 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 4dr Minivan


Bought the van with 68k mi about 16 mos ago (now has 82K). Transmission oil looked a little dark at the time--had it flushed before I would purchase van. Since then, had small problems, but overall, have been happy with the van. Problems include a starter that went out at 79k miles, CD player plays sporadically, and broken connector in cable running from antenna to radio. It also burns more oil than I prefer (one qt per 2000 mi +/-). So far, have experienced none of the major problems listed in other reviews. Is very comfortable, starts/runs well and has served well during my ownership.

Best Features

Lots of room. Captainís chairs are very nice. No rattles/squeaks. Trip computer. Rear air. Privacy glass. Easy to change the oil/filter.

Worst Features

Less road noise. Computer overstates mileage by huge amounts. Canít trust that part of the computer at all. Like more torque than a 3.8 can provide (I like bigger motors). Wish the captainís chairs would slide back and forth. Checking the air filter can be a pain.
