1998 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


Me and my family bought a brand new 1998 Caravan with 5 miles on it, and we liked it, for a little while. Head gasket failed at 16,000 miles, had many porblems with A/C, and after replacing every component, me and the dealer got to the point that it just needed an adjusted belt after every winter. after a few more parts replaced, the trans tore apart at 73,000 miles, just slipped into the warrenty. then recently, the car needed 2 rigorus mainance jobs, because the engine would hesesitate, nearly stall, backfire, shake, jiggle, and then the power steering was leaking, and oil is slightly leaking. I regret ever buying this car, and I wished that I just got a Ford Taurus.

Best Features

Comfy, sleek, contrils are big and easy to use, feels more like a car than a truck

Worst Features

RELIABILITY IS AWFUL! Poorly designed, electrical glitches are getting annoying, impossible to mainance because everyting is crammed together.
