2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

We didn't have any problems with this van for the first 45K miles, but then the transmission seized up and had to be replaced (70K mile warranty covered all but $100, but was gone for a week with no backup which was tough). Some of the electrical features work intermittently, windows stopped working, back lift gate latch doesn't work (have to use key to open each time), engine light is on and off. Even so, it gets good gas mileage and is comfortable and safe to ride in. The DVD is a life saver with 4 young kids and long trips. The stow and go seats are great and we have used this many times, all seats lie flat so it is a like a covered long bed truck if needed.

Favorite Features

Comfort, stow and go, DVD

Suggested Improvements

Reliability is not good, only had in shop once though through $65K miles, so not terrible. Dodge needs to fix their electrical system to keep things working -- not sure why some components intermittently work.
