2006 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We purchased this van for vacation & winded up loving it. I drive 2000+ miles a month with my job now and really enjoy the van. Have all the comfort features like leather,dvd, power everything as well. We come from sports cars but like luxury and this van has it all for us. Not the sports car feel but still has power to merge into traffic and get a jump at the stop light if need be w/out any problems. I would buy again & yes, Dodge treats us well. We've owned 21 vehicles in 12 years and we've had this 1 the longest. Kids really enjoy it as well as they have lots of room. No real problems other then rack & pinion went out. Dealer took car of it. Best mpg 29.8 worst 18, Mobile 1 syn. oil helps.


Best Features

Everything..DVD,Sto-n-go, power everything, safety for family, mileage, luxury items for the $$$$. AMERICAN MADE Need I say more!


Worst Features

Hide the darn pipe for the Sto-N-Go seating features. $35K and see the pipe come on Dodge, Bigger LCD screen

Review

I've had my van now for two years and have LOVED every minute of it. It great on trips, roomy, comfortable, easy to handle. I am now, after almost 2 years to the date, running into small problems. Air conditioning blows hot air, water pump is leaking and window motor needs to be replaced. It's all under warranty. So far, it's been great. It will be interesting to see what happens after the warranty. I hope it holds up.


Best Features

Handling is fantastic. I like the fast acceleration. Great gas mileage (you have to keep the air filter changed, it makes a HUGE difference)


Worst Features

I would like the stereo to be louder

Review

We traded in our 2002 Grand Caravan for the 2006 Grand Caravan. We were very pleased with the '02 but this van with its Stow n Go seating is far superior. The seats work easily. If you do not have Stow n Go you will be amazed how frequently you use them. We use them every day. easy to use and can fold all seats within a minute. Have not had any major problems with the van at all. The van has made three trips to Florida and South Carolina (from NJ) and it is very comfortable. The storage wells for the middle row seats make a great storage area for snacks and things. There really is a lot of room in this van. Rides like a Cadillac on the highway. Easy to drive with great visibility.


Best Features

3.8 engine, Stow n Go, video system, interior controls well laid out and easy to use. Handling is terrific. Smooth quiet ride. Feels solid. Have gotten 26.2 mpg on the highway. I am averaging @20-22 mpg with normal driving. It gets better mileage than the '02 and I have a bigger engine! (3.8 vs 3.3)


Worst Features

None. I feel Dodge did their homework on this van and they should be complimented. It is a well designed and well built car.

Review

I bought this van brand new. We purchased an extended warranty also. I have had continuous problems starting at about 18,000 with stalling. I had to take it in over 6 times only to be told nothing is registering on the computer. After the 6th time, the fuel pump was replaced. Now, again, we are having stalling problems only to be told nothing is registering and it can't be duplicated. Gas mileage horrible. It also: has problems with front brakes, grinding sound turning and reverse, a loud noise on hard right turns. And, nothing is wrong with any of these items according to the dealerships. Huge safety hazard


Best Features

I thought I would like the stow and go. NO- I keep the seats up all the time as it is our family van for 5. They don't go up and down easily. Another warranty item I talked to the service department about only to be told there is nothing wrong.

Review

Bought the van in early of 2006 and know wile I am writing this my family and I have put a little over 40,000 miles on the van. It has been great it has not given us a lick of trouble since day one. The thing gets on average 23 to 24 mpg and close to 26 if we do nothing but highway. I guess the K&N air filter helps with that and i would recommend that air filter to anybody who has this van as it does, not only help out fuel mileage, but also gives the 3.8 a tad but more power. My family and I are very happy with this van, the room in this thing is great and the way gas is going up we won't get rid of this thing anytime soon.


Best Features

Room, interior quailty (padded dash is great), low-end torque of the 3.8, soft seats, oh and did I say room!


Worst Features

Stock tires are junk (only lasted till 40k and are horrible in the snow), better speakers for the stock radio.
