Some Design Problems
By Dan O. on


1997 Dodge Caravan SE 3dr Minivan


The front strut bearings went at 95 000
miles to the tune of $1000. Now the
spare tire assembly has corroded so
badly it needs replacing at $300. I
can smell oil in the heating air and
yes the wipes do come on without
requesting. Chrysler is not a fun
company do deal with, good thing the
product is so affordable.

Best Features

Rides quite well for a van and I have had no major repairs until now!

Worst Features

Lighter back seats. Improve the air circulation in the vehicle. Come up with a better spare tire assembly.....it corrodes too easilly in northern climates where salt is used on roads.
