Dodge Caravan Transmission Warning
By EW on
Vehicle1993 Dodge Caravan SE 3dr Minivan
ReviewThis was the first of two Dodge
Caravan purchases. The 1993 has
192,000 miles and the 1996 has 152,000
miles. Both have the 3.0 engine. In
both vehicles, the engines are
extraordinarily reliable with VERY FEW
repairs. On the other hand, both have
needed transmissions within 70,000
miles and each van has had three
transmissions (two replacements
each). Neither vehicle was used in
towing or hill climbing nor have they
been overloaded. Both were used for
daily commuting on the FLAT Chicago
area roadways. If it weren't for the
poor transmission quality, these would
be outstanding vehicles.
Best FeaturesVehicle size and comfort are impressive. Built in child restraint seats are a nice feature for families. Really like the reliability of the engine and the quality of exterior paint. No body rust after 10 years!
Worst FeaturesFix the chronic transmission problems.
