Review of the 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan

  • Pleasant to drive and ride in but lacking a few key features and the rock-solid reliability record of certain rivals.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Lots of new options, torquey engines, car-like driving characteristics, improved safety features.

  • Cons

    Still no stowable third seat, gets pricey when options are added, legroom in second-row seats.

  • What's New for 2001

    America's best-selling minivan is all new for 2001, with many industry-first features including a power rear tailgate, a power sliding…

Not happy!!!

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan ES Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this minivan only two months ago. Already a/c went out, pass. side door trim (exterior) fell off. But gas mileage is decent for a seven year old vehicle. Wish it had center console, dealer didn't know where it was and it was over $400.00 from Dodge! Also no owner's manual.




Unreliability overshadows looks

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan ES Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this minivan new because it was the best looking of all the minivans at the time. It had an unusually (for a minivan) sporty look plus it has a great ride, handled well, was very comfortable on long trips, a luxurious interior and quietness, and offers great peformance with plenty of torque from the 3.8 V6. However, it turned out to be more than a lemon, a real headache. It has had over $5,750 in repairs since 1 week of ownership until now. To list just a few problems: New rear hatch motor, sliding door motor,window motor,new transmission,3 AC,condensor, 2sets rotors, ignition barrel, pwr doorlock, pwr steering ,etc..all before 50,000 miles.

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan ES Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Bought van used with 40k on it and an orig. sticker of $32,900 Gave $15,000 for it used. Go Dodge ! For some reason I still love this van. I guess because you can haul the world in it. Problems include A/C clutch bearing went bad, can't get a new bearing so we need whole new compressor. 900 bucks. Power rear lift and driver side sliding door have minds of their own. Infinity stereo e.q. has short do not move it or else! After a run up in the N. Georgia Mts the tranny isnt the same. It groans and whines like it's on its last leg. That was 15k ago and it's still coming back for more. When the engine is cranked after sitting overnight this van sounds like a Deere not Dodge. Van now has 91K.
