2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Ext Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
We purchased this van to accommodate our growing family. It was far less expensive as a used vehicle than Japanese competitors. The bad: the interior plastics are cheap, the 3.3L engine is only adequate, and fuel economy is so-so. The good: we bought it with less than 20,000 miles for about $10,000 off what it would cost new. It has been very reliable, with one air conditioning problem fixed under warranty. Best of all are the stow n go seats, which are incredibly easy to operate even with one hand. It carries an enormous amount of stuff, and is pretty comfortable to drive. I don't mind the cheap interior so much, since kids only make a mess of it anyhow.
Stow N Go seats are fantastic
A better quality interior would improve first impressions.
