1999 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan


Review

This was my third Caravan and was the best and most reliable. Change the oil regularly and tires when appropriate. I enjoy the vision and the height of the seats. It is not a luxury automobile but quite functional. Many long trips went by quickly.


Best Features

Affordability. Reliability. Vision. AC worked fine and still does. Comfortable and practical.


Worst Features

Improved gas mileage might be nice. In some ways, it is a cheaply made vehicle (seats, interior, etc.) but you get what you pay for.

Review

Have to say this van has been VERY reliable. Has 225,000 miles and only minor problems. Replaced alternator about a year ago. Recently the cooling fans went out causing the radiator to crack. Replaced the radiator, still haven't found out whats wrong with the fans. Gas mileage got bad about a year ago. Wierd story. Used to go from east georgia to north alabama on 3/4 tank of gas. It got great gas mileage. Took it to get a routine oil change one day and when I picked it up I had to put gas in it 3 times to make it to florida. Ever since then its had the worst gas mileage. Weird? Yes. Other than that I've had no problems with it. Very roomy, comfortable, drives great.


Best Features

Very roomy, removable seats, rear a/c, reliability, drives smooth, all the features


Worst Features

Can't think of any

Review

Owned the car for 10 years now. Got us through 2 kids, friends, 20 Nascar events to Texas Motor Speedway. Car has been garage kept for 10 years, spent its whole life shuttling kids in a 10 mile radius. Just now starting to have oil leaks. Belt tensioner was fixed 2 years ago (loud-but did not effect performance or reliability) and is starting to make noise again. We have the sport, it's comfortable as far as vans go. Went through 3 sets of tires in 10 years. Ignition cylinder locked out 2 times in 10 years, both times had to be dragged out of garage. Overall, a good local kid hauler for 10 years. Time for a sportier Volvo next week! Goodbye minivan!


Best Features

All the room! Liked the captains chairs front and back. Nice to be able to remove the 3rd row bench. Great for tailgaiting. It's actually been sporty as far as vans go. Viper fog lights, wing on back, all one color, larger wheels and tires. Not a bad looking vehicle for its time.


Worst Features

Served it's purpose for 10 years. Redesign the ignition lock. Broke 2 times and could not get key out. Redesign belt tensioner, went bad and every Dodge related van sounds terrible when this thing starts to go bad. Who designed this, the kid fresh out of design school making $20k/year?

Review

Bought used from a friend (off lease) with 36K mi. Owned for almost 7 yrs. Other than expected and reasonable maintenance/replacement items (brakes, batteries, tires, belts, tune-up) had no major mechanical or electrical problems, and it never left us stranded. Finally traded off at 135K mi, but only because we were getting a little nervous about frequent road-trips to remote rural areas for family obligations.


Best Features

Room, interior flexibility, comfort, reliability, amazingly good highway economy (3.3-liter V6) of 25-27 mpg if driven sensibly.


Worst Features

Poor city fuel economy, but probably not bad considering vehicle weight.
