No Major Complaints

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.
Lots of room. Captainís chairs are
very nice. No rattles/squeaks. Trip
computer. Rear air. Privacy glass.
Easy to change the oil/filter.
Less road noise. Computer overstates
mileage by huge amounts. Canít trust

like bigger motors). Wish the
captainís chairs would slide back and
