1998 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan

Review

We have 114000 miles in our 98 Dodge Grand Caravan SE. First of all the 3.0 V6 is very slow. When I drive it, I have trouble keeping up with the flow of traffic. Around the 110000 mile mark we started having all these problems. First of all, we noticed that there's a putt-putt sound when you first start accelerating (acceleration hesitates) after you start the van up. The 4 speed auto shifts were taking forever. We were up at 4000 rpm's hitting the gas normally before it shifted. Then the brakes started sweaking. We got some of these problems fixed at the dealer but the putt-putt and longer shifting(slightly improved)were still there.

Favorite Features

room and comfort, that's about it, many better minivan buys out there

Suggested Improvements

need good reliability like imports, and need way better acceleration,Never another domestic minivan again!
