Vehicle2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)
ReviewI purchased this van used in 2010.
I didn't know at the time, it was a previous Enterprise Rental.
I got a good deal on it and has been mostly reliable. The van still has the original battery in it! It currently has 79,000 miles on it. THE BAD - My van needs front brakes every 8-10k miles. I only replaced rears once so far.
Other than the A/C, Radiator Cap, and Sliding Door recall, I've had no major problems.
The right front caliper did freeze up on me once. Since the last time I did brakes, the right front has been making a screeching sound while driving.
I hope it is not wheel bearings.
The seats could be more comfortable.
The newer vans have nicer interiors since Fiat took over.
Best FeaturesRoominess, Stow-n-go, Power Sliding door, Safety Features.
Worst FeaturesThey have already made progress with the interior and the new 3.6l engine. They need to make the van lighter and put better brakes / rotors on them.

To those of you complaining of brakes wearing out prematurely, how many make sure that your lug nuts are torqued to the proper spec after a brake job? Do this and you'll eliminate the number one source of premature brake failure. Don't do it? Then don't complain.Report it
