Have had three so far. 1994 had many
problems. 1997 was flawless. This one
has been the same. No problems and a
nice, large, car that is sporty and
fun to drive. Added a California wing
(low arch) to the back and this car
looks like twice the price. We plan on
keeping this one for several more
years as we have added a '03 AWD
Caravan ES to the "stable" and it is
getting most of the daily driver use.
Suspension is awesome. Silky smooth
yet capable of aggressive cornering.
Handles rough spots through corners
with ease. The transmission is as nice
as it gets. Slick, quick shifts that
are almost imperceptible. I really
like this car.
The 3.2 was the top engine for a 2000
ES. They have since added the 3.5 and
that is a good thing. Partial throttle
torque was lacking. Not that the 3.2
is bad...I was used to the torque that
the old 3.5 had in my 94 and 97 and
this one doesn't have it at low revs.
