Still going at 257000+ miles
By ken_86gt on
2000 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan
I bought this van used at ~93k miles. This van has been incredibly reliable. Normal maintenance items ONLY- oil, filters, tires, brakes, plugs, belts, battery. Still on original hoses. I have only replaced the starter and alternator once, I consider this normal. It is starting to use a little oil, have a transmission leak that is significant, and uses coolant frequently. I just keep them topped of at this point. I will be looking for another Caravan soon! I have friends with Honda and Toyota minivans that required much more maintenance and repairs than mine! I keep thinking that this will be the last set of tires I buy- and then 50K later it is time again...
Roomy, hauls the family and gear well on long trips. I can pull a large trailer with it when needed.
Better gas mileage- I average 20mpg normal driving and about 24mpg when on the highway.
