It's been an o.k. van
By goose on
1998 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 4dr Minivan
We have put almost 98,000 miles. No
major problems, transmission makes some
noise when shifting. The electronics
are unreliable - Dealer had to
recalibrate a/c twice when battery was
replaced. I am on the 3rd battery.
Brakes need replacing every 30k miles.
Tires only last 30k and few options
when replacing. Engine is very sluggish
when ambient tempature is higher than
95F. Doors automatically lock at 15mph,
this could be a safety concern if a
quick exit is needed in an accident.
Sound sytem is great,
Eliminate the auto-lock feature, reduce
electronics and drain on battery
