2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
We got this used with 24,000 on it. At 80,000 the transmission went out at 5:45 one morning on the way to work. At 90,000 the AC went out. Also replaced the window motor, 3 sets of rotors, and now it is making suspension noises and power steering pump noises. It is one thing after another. I've spent $4000 on major repairs in the past 3 years, far less than the dealer would have charged though, because I know a good mechanic. Keep in mind, this is only a 5 year old vehicle that was $28000 to start with. It is not a reliable vehicle, but it drives well and has plenty of room, which is why we got it. Just find a good mechanic and save up some money for repairs. You will need both.
Cargo room. Nice CD player.
Get the mechanical problems under control or you will not get any more repeat customers. My sister's, neighbor's and employee's Caravans also lost their transmissions right after the warranty expired. I will think twice before getting another one.
