2002 Dodge Grand Caravan eX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Value for the price defines the EX
model. Equipped with most features
that one wants in a family vehicle, you
won't break the bank with this van.
The 3.8L engine is smooth and gets up
to speed quickly. Having owned 2 other
Caravans, I'll wait to give judgement
on the transmission. Fit and finish
appear good. At times the electric
doors are a little finicky about
opening and closing. I don't know if
it relates to operator or mechanical
Power doors, while seemingly gimmicky,
are rather useful for a family with
small kids. They appear to minimize
the impact to the door upon closure and
are extremely helpful when loading and
unloading in a busy parking lot.
Chrysler could benefit from the
addition of the On-Star system.
