Buy a Mercury Villager
By Chris P on


1998 Dodge Caravan SE 4dr Minivan


Purchased this van because we got a
good deal on it. Its turned out to be
the worst vehical anyone in the family
has ever owned. Handeling and
cornering is very poor compared to the
Ford Aerostar and Mercury Villager.
At 55-60k miles we have replaced the
following on our 1998 Caraven Sport
Transmission and differential - $2200
2 Axels, both rear brake calipers,
differential again, transmission
sensor. Car left us stranded in PA
with a "loose battery cable"...Funny
we tightend all those when trying to
get it to start. Not to mention the
passenger sliding door is falling
apart, interior panel is falling off,
held on with one screw, rest is snaps.

Best Features

-Powerful engine -Attractiveness -Sport Exaust sounds cool

Worst Features

-Use screws to assemble the interior -Design a whole new transaxel -Improve handeling and turning, it drives like a truck compared to other vans. -Sliding door windows that have at least air vents would be nice -Rear air, not door vents blocked by seats and seatbelts
