Less than Pacifica, but best of the vans
By C. Paske on
2004 Dodge Grand Caravan SE Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
This car is smoother than '04 Sienna &
MUCH quieter than the Honda Oddity.
(But not as quality as the Navigator,
Pacifica, or Lexus.) Very
versatile,and therefore quite
addictive. Highway manners are stable&
predictable. Styling is nice; fit &
finish - excellent. The feel is
quality; but the look is boring. A
dependable work van; able to trudge
through snow & muddy construction
sites with ease.
I love to drop off my child, fold up
the built-in child seat, flip the
seats flat, and load it with work
materials -- in no-time-flat. From kid
hauler to work truck in seconds.
White-face gauges are a nice touch.
Leg room is excellent.
Like all minivans, it desperately
needs more tie-down hooks inside.
More wood & brushed aluminum accents
on the inside would be nice -- it's a
bit too euro-ugly for me.
