1997 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


i bought this van about 160kkms and it
is now 230kkms. Things broken;
transmission, rad, a/c, computer.
Really the transmission went because
the tranny cooler in the rad got a
pinhole and sent prestone into the
transmission. Not a good design on
Chryslers part. I would recomend an
external cooler and bypass the rad
cooler to anyone who owns one of
these. i got my cooler off a junked
ford tempo, $10. There is a known
problem in the computer on this year it
makes the check engine light come on
and an the van idles rough. The
windshield wipers come on by themselves
once in a while, this is a known
problem with the wiper switch.

Best Features

lots of room good exterior style peppy

Worst Features

external tranny cooler standard
