1996 Dodge Caravan ES 3dr Minivan


Purchased used in 1998 with 79,000 miles. Owned for 12+ years with only routine maintenance problems. Put snow tires on front ever winter with no problem handling in snow up to 8 inches deep. 3.8 L V6 engine has lots of oomph if needed to pass cars on highway. Love the cruising comfort with 4 captains seats. Just completed a round trip from MA to NC with no complaints. Averaged 23 mpg. Used around town also with 3rd row seat removed for extra cargo storage. Can fit up to 10 foot long pieces of lumber inside if needed. Enjoy the trip computer with built in compass.

Best Features

4 captain chairs; dual sliding side doors. Large rear hatch opening.

Worst Features

As with any vehicles, better gas mileage if possible. Around town was 17-18. We can put a man on the moon but why can't we get better mpg's figured out?
