2002 Dodge Caravan SE Fwd 4dr Minivan (2.4L 4cyl 3A)


Review

Considerably inexpensive. Paid half the price of a same year Honda van we purchased for my wife's use. Engine wise it is very peppy and economical. Very spacious for our family of 5. However, after 50,000 miles and 3 years, the evaporator and condenser needed replacing. $1000 dollars later the A/C was cooling satisfactory again. Soon I will tradeit in for a Honda van.


Best Features

Powerful reliable engine


Worst Features

Wished 4 wheel drive had been an option

2002 Dodge Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We purchased an extended Dodge Caravan Sport and we enjoyed it in the test drive, but after we took it home it had some faults. We noticed the sound of an air leak from the windshield area that whistled particularly at highway speeds. The interior quality is quite poor as our passenger side sliding door panel fell off. The seats are comfortable and all rows are roomy. Performance isn't great with the 3.3L V6, but hey its a minivan.


Best Features

Comfy ride, quiet interior, roomy.


Worst Features

Performance. Better quality

2002 Dodge Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have five kids (and a husband) and this car is large enough for all of us and our stuff. It is very reliable, I have only had to replace brake pads and tires. Finally, unlike other minivans, it looks good. I don't feel like a frumpy mom when I am in my sporty van with sleek lines. Now if we could just get an automatic french fry remover!


Best Features

Sleek lines. Storage. Powerful engine.


Worst Features

Better lumbar support in driver and passenger seats. Covers for the area where the seat is attached to the van. (They are very difficult to vacuum.

2002 Dodge Caravan eC Fwd 4dr Minivan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had this van for two years. I
am in the process of trading it in for
a Toyota (I owned a Toyota prior to
buying this van). At 37,600 miles the
headlights started going out. I was
driving in the middle of the night and
the headlights went out on me. I am
lucky I didn't kill myself. Dodge
Dealer said it was an electrical
short? The car is only two years
old! Also had trouble with battery
disconnecting from its mount at a 1
year old.


Best Features

Nothing, really.


Worst Features

Need to make a better quality vehicle. Fix transmission and eletrical problems
