Good while it lasted - RIP my friend.
By wvuprof on


2000 Dodge Caravan SE 4dr Minivan


Bought with 98k miles on it. Comfortable, easy to drive, no extraordinary maintenance or repair costs aside from new tires and regular oil changes for 2 yrs.
At 136k miles, the transmission failed. I had it rebuilt, but other things started to go bad afterward (I don't believe these problems were caused by the mechanics during the rebuild). A small oil leak (not sure from where), a radiator hose blew out, washer sprayer quit, small stuff like that. Nickle and dime.
A year later, the dashboard electric went out. No wipers, no speedometer, no fuel gauge.
Despite the electrical problems and annoying glitches, the motor ran well. It was good while it lasted, but no more Dodges for me thanks.

Best Features

Removable third row seats, comfortable seats, plenty of leg room in second row, good MGP for a V6.

Worst Features

It looks like Dodge has corrected the electrical issues in later models, so it's all good.
