My wife and I love our Grand Caravan
SXT, Its the fourth van that we have
owned. Our last van was a Voyeger and
it was nothing but trouble. We have had
good luck with the Caravan's that we
have bought so far. The room in the
back is great for traveling and the
seats are easy to fold for cargo. The
only thing I wanted was the fold down
DVD entertainment system but its not
worth the price. I was interested in
buying the Toyota Sienna but could not
get use to the placement of the shift,
also Dodge had a much better rebate.
favorite features are the 8 was power
driver seats, fold down rear and middle
seats and trip computer.
For the price of this van Dodge needs
to up the interior quality, way to much
plastic. Free entertainment systems
would be nice, and better fuel milage.
So far this vehicle has been reliable
and very capable of holding up to a
very active family's demanding
schedule. There's plenty of room for
all the things that need to go with
you; strollers, toys, etc.
We enjoy the power sliding doors and
liftgate. They're convenient when you
are carrying a child and/or "other
stuff" and don't have afree hand to
grab the door handle.
I have to admit that I researched
Consumer Reports and based on their
recommendation I looked at the Toyota,
Honda, and Nissan without giving this
vehicle a chance at first. I then
decided not to limit my options and
tried the Dodge. The Dodge Grand
Caravan SXT has a smooth and quiet ride
that matches the Toyota and is better
by a large margin over the noisy Honda
and rattle prone Nissan. A powerful
engine that gets excellent gas mileage
(I'm averaging 21+ MPG). The SXT is
also fully loaded with all the options -
including dual power sliding doors. As
an added bonus we purchased this van at
a great price!
Smooth ride, powerful engine, dual
power sliding doors.
