2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
Got my 2001 Grand Caravan used with 50,000 miles on it, now have 165,000. It has been one of the best cars I have ever owned. Driving comfort, road performance, utility, reliability; all top notch. I replaced the stock air filter with a K&N filter at 90,000 miles, and noticed an immediate increase in fuel economy of almost 10%, as well as noticeably more power under acceleration (3.3 liter V6). Only maintenance and normal wear type expenses with this car; brakes, one set of rotors, one rear windshield washer motor, one set of anti-sway bars. It has all-original exhaust system and shocks, and has never stranded me.
The driver's seat pan is 2 inches longer than in most other cars, providing a very significant increase in driver comfort for me (6'2" with long legs). Removable (not stow'n'go) seats are great. General visibility and controls are excellent.
Slight rattle at top of shock mounts as the car ages (every Chrysler product I've ever owned has this same annoying feature). Design could be better and/or beefier to eliminate this.
