1997 Dodge Caravan LE 4dr Minivan


Within 2 years things just started to
go wrong: wind noise in the driver's
side, which after many attempts it is
still not fixed. The wipers go on
without anyone touching anything (like
there is a ghost). Same thing with the
cruise control. The latest is a gas
leakeage in the a/c system that will
cost $1,200 to fix. It's been one
problem after the other. I will never
again purchase a Dodge product. To add
insult to injury even though I had
tried to get the wind noise repaired
at the dealer many times during the
warranty period and they were not able
to fix it, once the warranty expired
Dodge pretty much said it was out of
their hands!

Best Features

The exterior looks very pretty. Back in 1997 it was "the" minivan to own. Unfortunately (for Dodge) the Japanese (Honda and Toyota) not only have caught up, but their product is now much superior.

Worst Features

Quality and workmanship needs to improve big time.
