Hate my van!
By M. Sackett - Omaha on


2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


This van is always in the shop for repair! It's had 7 service visits in 11 months: 1) The ignition key receiver failed, resulting in a tow the 1st month. 2&3) Hard drive on stereo was replaced twice. Chrysler also sent out software upgrade to fix add'l problems with system. 4) Tail gate assembly latch was replaced when it locked shut and I couldn't even open it manually. 5) Side sliding doors, which never shut properly electronically, had to be adjusted. 6 & 7) The heater in one of the seats quit working, so had to replace the heating element. In addition, indicator lights are unreliable. Recommendation: Don't buy this vehicle! We spent $30,000, and wish we had our old van (worth $1,000).

Best Features

It's a very comfortable ride when it's not in the shop for repairs!

Worst Features

There are too many problems with this vehicle to list suggested improvements in 300 characters. Dealers should continue promotions that give a free TV with each purchase, like we got. That way, when you're stuck at home with no car (it's in the shop again), you can watch TV on the big screen!
