2000 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 4dr Minivan AWD
My second grand caravan, first AWD.
Purchased AWD due to rear disc brake
option, after this experience I would
only buy with all wheel disc brakes. I
have had some warranty items that
concern me, overall ownership
experience has been solid, van still
quite, very, very comfortable, features
and size still acceptable after 3
years. Wanted to buy Honda, just put
off by supply demand $$ and dealer poor
treatment. Told dealer if I can test
drive an S500 Mercedes, then I will
test drive Honda before purchase, he
said no, I bought a Dodge.
AWD is absolutely fantastic in winter
weather. You lose about 2 mpg but that
is acceptable, overall appearance still
best in class in my opinion, comfort
second to none.
Finish on alloy center caps needs to be
improved, belt tensioner revisit,
squeaked on 1996 and 2000 vans, clearly
chrysler should install shim package to
align fully both front tires, an insult
that you have to pay $100 per side for
a kit to align tow????
