After 6 years we are satisfied

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan
We purchased this van new with a tow package since it included the transmission cooler (fearing the infamous failures). So far we have done regular maintenance. About $2500 worth over 6 years and completed 2 recalls. The only out of warranty repairs have been the serpentine belt pulley ($100) and a transmission speed sensor at 40K miles($150). Much better then our Volvo 850 wagon which needed a timing belt and water pump new window switches, and radio at 17K miles. This car has travelled from California to Maryland and from Florida to Canada on our vacations without any problems. I hope it lasts another 5 years.
Spaciousness and the ability to haul all kinds of things from building supplies to furniture.
Plastic door runners show wear easily. Paint quality at factory could have been better, but the paint is holding up so far. The chrome "SPORT" and "DODGE" emblems have faded also.
