2009 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)
We have the 4.0 engine and it performs great.
This van is the only way to travel with your family.
However, Dodge needs to get some thing right.
The brake rotors started going bad at 15,000 miles and Dodge would not honor the warranty.
They wanted $100 to fix their problem.
Next, the Bridgestone tires on the van are garbage (nearly worn out at 20,000 miles).
The air conditioner fan motor goes out after a while (however it will work after stopping the van and restarting a short while later).
The radio conked out in the first year.
A good vehicle with some minor changes would be a great vehicle.
Dodge needs to step up and cover their mistakes.
Entertainment system is nice, tons of cup holders, halo lighting, and good looks (the 17" wheels look great).
Easy vehicle to service, all service points are easily seen.
Better fit and finish, occasionally I have to go around the vehicle and push the bumper covers back in place (the corners wand to stick out).
Quit using cheap tires, brake parts, and so much plastic in the interior.
Subtle improvements would make this a great vehicle.
We have 44,000 miles on the vehicle (purchased new) with the lifetime powertrain warranty.
I hope the company will back the warranty if we ever need it (I tend to keep a car between 200,000 to 300,000 miles).
