1999 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan


Have had constant trouble with both sets of brakes. Suspension leaves alot to be desired. Tranny lasted over 100,000 miles. Had it rebuilt. Cruise control problem early on. Tried to change sparkplugs at 100,000 miles. Couldn't get to the one in the rear on pass. side. Don't have a creeper or a lift and am not a contor- tionist. Had to pay an independent $23 to do it! Old models had fuel filter under the pass. door panel. On my '99 you must drop the fuel tank to reach it. Another $50 for labor! Looked at the new base models. Cheaper interiors, lack of features. Have had a Chrysler mini-van since their first model year. Bye-bye Dodge Caravan, Hello Toyota Sienna!

Best Features

Removable seats to make room for my 2 Labs' crates.

Worst Features

Need heavier suspension to bear more weight. Overhaul the brake systems. Make it easier for the do-it-yourselfer. This is all by design. Why let a person do it himself when the dealer can charge you $60 an hour for labor?
