2002 Grand Caravan ex
By JohnyD on
Vehicle2002 Dodge Grand Caravan eX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewLooked at all minivans and pared the list down to the Honda, Mazda and Grand Caravan. I refuse to be railroaded into paying $3k over MSRP for a car, so the Honda was out. We ended up buying the Grand Caravan ex and hit the road on a 1200 mile road trip from SoCal to Lake Powell and back. We hit extreme temps, rain, wind, sand storms and the van took it all like a champ. Very comfortable and well thought out vehicle. I am still a little worried about the reliability of the power train, but with the 7yr/100k warranty, I think that is covered. Great van for a great price.
Best FeaturesLove all the features. Auto sliding doors and tailgate are great. Engine was peppy - even at 115 degrees with a full load and the A/C running up the Baker grade. Cabin is very quiet at high speeds. Seats are very comfortable.
Worst FeaturesSuspension is a bit wishy-washy. All three mirrors give you three different reference points when viewing behind you - difficult to guage how close the car behind you really is. Re- circulation A/C button didn't work at all (really stinky cows in Norco too!)
