170,000 miles and still going!
By cprevbhayes on
2000 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 4dr Minivan
Bought used in 2003 with 35k.
Now has 170,000 and still running strong.
Did have to replace shift solenoid in tranny at about 100k, but that was only a $300 repair.
Motor is still strong and doesn't use any oil.
Transmission will use a little fluid occasionally.
Only complaint (if you can complain about something that is 11 years old) is that the paint on the hood is fading out.
Still drives great.
A/C compressor is currently out and weighing whether or not it is worth the $1000 price tag to have that fixed.
All in all, it has been a great vehicle.
Not that exciting to drive, but great for the family.
Hey, it's a minivan after all!
Room, LOTS of room!
Has been very cheap to maintain.
I think gas mileage of 22-24 on highway is great.
I've heard the transmission horror stories, but other than the shift solenoid, we have had no problems.
