1996 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


Last car, Dodge Colt. Had it for 10
years. Thought the Caravan would be the
same. Mistake! Came with defective
window seals dumping water on the
passenger side floor when it rained 1st
1000 miles-oil leak and shift indicator
broke stranding me 100s of miles from
home. Belts don't last. I've lost track
of the number of times I've replaced
them. One broke without warning. I've
had oil leaks, antifreeze leaks,
squishy brakes and occasional stalls.
At 85,000 miles the windshield wipers
turn on intermittently, the belts are
squeaking, the brakes need to be
replaced again, the horn is broken, and
the airbag has been recalled. I'm not
bothering to repair it

Best Features

Sturdy in accident. Was rear-ended while stopped in traffic by a pickup truck going 60mph. $2,500 damage- replacing the bumpers and beating out rear door. Of course the airbag was defective and did not deploy when I was pushed into the car in front of me.

Worst Features

Everything under the hood. All of it. I was a loyal customer. I will never buy Chrysler again.
