Good (North)American Value
By R. E. Moore on
Vehicle2004 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewHave owned since new, going on 7 years and have 135,000 miles. Overall 22-23 mpg. Out of warranty after 18 months (36,000 miles). Very comfortable ride, sits 6 adults or 7 if 3 kids. Seats come out in halves, easier than older Chryslers. Paid $21,500 new. Power doors expensive ($400)repair , paid for 3 now. Mostly highway miles, keep the oil changed, been very reliable. Goes through brakes. Automatic Transmission shifts rough, all my Chrysler minivans have. Anti-lock brakes awesome, thought I'd nailed someone last week, stopped quickly with no loss of control.
Best FeaturesNew van for good value price, expect it to keep going for several more years. Ease of seat removal, have moved daughter to and from college, son to and from Army posts, with great cargo capacity.
Worst FeaturesMore reliable power doors. Do not operate your power doors manually, it helps tear them up. Doors are much easier manually if don't have power chain drive to overcome.
