1998 Dodge Grand Caravan ES 4dr Minivan

Review

We had owned a couple of older cars for a number of years and we decided we needed the room of a minivan, so we bought our Grand Caravan with 52,000 miles on it. While we have not had any mechanical problems with it so far, it is so difficult to perform preventative maintenance on it except oil changes. I do my own work, but I could not change all of the spark plugs, belts, fuel filter, etc. Its fuel economy was disappointing, and its build quality is not as good as my Toyota Corolla that is eight years older and has four times as many miles on it (235,000).

Favorite Features

It is very comfortable to drive and sit in, and the driver ergonomics are better-than-average for an American- designed vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

The 3.3L V-6 sometimes struggles to climb hills and downshifts even on slight grades. More horsepower and/or torque. Better fuel economy (it would be better if it didn't downshift constantly).
