2013 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)

Review

2013 Grand Caravan SXT; currently with about 10,000 miles on it.
I really wouldn't consider any minivan that didn't have some version of Stow&Go.
I have the second row seats folded down almost as much as I have them up, and I wouldn't like having to remove the seat to free up that space, since you then have to leave it at home and can't haul passengers in that area.

Other likes:
Great power, good gas mileage-I get 27 at 70-75 mph (town mileage is not great, tho).
Quiet, smooth ride.
Much less expensive to buy than Honda or Toyota.
Dislikes:
6 spd tranny is OK, but not as smooth or predictable as could be.
Driver's seat needs more rearward travel; legroom is limited.
Update @ 60,000 mi: Love the car with two exceptions; the transmission and the rear shocks. Rear shocks start rattling every 15-20K miles. Dealer has replaced them twice at no cost to me, and since the car is still within the 100,000 mi powertrain/suspension warranty, will be doing it again soon. Transmission still shifts rough sometimes, particularly when shifting out of reverse into drive. Dealer rebuilt it once, saying they found torque converter clutch to have shredded crap into the rest of the tranny. Shifts decently now, but not great, still giving that "whack" going from R to D about 50% of the time. There is a new TSB out on it, and I hope to have them reprogram it again soon.
