I bought this van new and cheap. Thought I was getting a deal. I should have checked this web site first. This van had transmission and engine problems and the back door latch was broken. I owned the vehicle three months and it started to act up. The worst vehicle I've ever owned. I will never buy another Dodge/Chrysler product ever again. Honda Odyssey, Nissan Quest or Mazda MPV is my next choice. We have a transmission place in our area where the owner got rich from repairing Dodge/Chrysler transmissions. This vehicle is dangerous and I feel Chrysler's repeated production of this vehicle exploits women and children.
Roomy, smooth ride when it did work.
Dodge/Chrysler needs to start over from scratch and take a lesson from Honda.
This minivan was advertised and reviewed
as the best minivan of the 90's. Thank
goodness the 90's are over. This van
has been unreliable. We were a block
from home heading to the airport and
both the input and output transmission
sensors gave out. This was at 4:00 a.m.
and we had to catch a plane at 6:00 a.m.
We have had to replace all four power
window motors, and we have had to
replace the driver's window motor 3
times and it just went bad again. This
vehicle is totally unreliable, and it is
a shame, as the concept is quite good.
Unfortunately, the reality is, this
The fact that it is paid off and on the
short list of vehicles we own to be sold
or traded. Our 1997 Dodge Neon has been
more reliable than this POC. That isn't
Improved quality control and parts. If
you have poor parts, then quality
control suffers. It doesn't matter if
it looks pretty on the outside, if it is
ugly underneath. You definitely lost a
Have owned this Dodge Grand since new.
Has worked great. Very few problems.

Good design. Roomy. Reasonable power.
Handles well for the type of vehicle.
We have the 3.8 liter engine. Stronger
than 3.3, but needs more. Seats need
more support, especially in the seat
back. Roll down windows in middle doors
would be a nice addition.
Quiet,smooth ride with plenty of room
for the kids. Has been extremely
reliable with only a couple of minor
problems. To date, 92,000 enjoyable
miles. The front shocks started to
squeak at 40,000 miles, but still
function o.k. and are still on (with the
occasional squeak). The clockspring
coil pack was replaced at 84000. Each
of the two transmission speed sensors
out at 45000 and 55000. Total repairs
(I did some of the work myself) is under
$500. Not bad for a vehicle about to
hit 100,000 and still drives like it was

be mandatory in every car.
Still the best looking mini-van on the
road! Othes would be wise to copy what
Chrysler has moved away from.
We bought this car just after the birth
of our third child. The sliding doors
on both sides were the best feature at
the time. It has been reliable with the
exception of having to have three speed
sensors , a water pump, and a belt
tensioner. The van rides great and the
seats are very comfortable. We get
about 24 mpg on the highway and 18 to
19 around town. With about 65000 miles
on it, I have no major complaints.
