Review of the 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent ride and handling characteristics, good low-end pull from 3.8-liter V6, roomy cabin, comfortable seats.

  • Cons

    No fold-flat third-row seat, unimpressive reliability history, subpar frontal offset crash test score, low resale value.

  • What's New for 2004

    To celebrate 20 years of building minivans, Dodge will offer an Anniversary Edition package for the Grand Caravan with such features as chrome wheels, two-tone leather upholstery, embroidered floor mats and an in-dash CD/DVD changer paired with a rear entertainment system. Additionally, the company has simplified the trim level structure this year, so that buyers need only choose a base SE, a midlevel EX or a top-of-the-line SXT. The Grand Caravan also gets a tire-pressure monitor, upgraded audio systems and a new integrated key/remote.

Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT AWD 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I currently have a 2004 model. This is my second Dodge Caravan. The first was a 1999 which performed very well. When I traded it in on the current one it had 69000 miles. The only problem I had with it was the emergency brake unit which had to be replaced at around 20000 miles, it was covered by the warrenty. The main reason I traded was the great financial deals they were offering at the time. I did upgrade to a larger V6 engine. There is a big difference in performance. I also added the power sliding doors, great.

Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT AWD 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have driven this van from Phoenix to LA, Vegas severial times, I have never been tired when I got to where I was going, when I made the same trip with a car I was always tired, almost like jet lag. I do feel that this van is very comfortable, and most of all I do feel safe in it. This is my second new one.

We are a family of 7. We love our van It's quality is perfect!!!! More spacious than our last van. Driving it is way better than expected. When we test drove it, I fell in love. I didn't want to leave w/out it. We picked it up 2 days later. I am 150% satisfied with our Grand caravan & would reccommend it to any family looking.

The Dodge Grand Caravan feels really sturdy when you get in to drive. After test driving other vans it just doesn't feel cheaply made. I love the stow and go feature and the improved gas mileage over my last van's.
