I am impressed
Traded my full size Dodge cargo van for this "mini cargo". Build quality is FAR superior to the full size van. More durable paint, heavier sheet metal, better suspension, easier to get in and out of, better ride and handling, double the gas mileage, and hauls 1500 pounds of music equipment without as much squat on the suspension as the full size van. Only thing lost was the ability to haul a full sheet of plywood. It really needs electric locks and windows since the manual locks and windows are awkward to deal with; side doors aren't keyed and must be unlocked from the inside. Really bad blind spot when merging on interstate even with blindspot mirrors. Fuel savings make the payments!
Great Van
We love the stow and go seats. Thisd is a great van for any size family.
Great buy
We went down a step, previously had a Grand Caravan. I was worried about space, but this van is surprisingly roomy for the size. Recently took it on a 3,500 mile trip and had plenty of room for a family of 4 and all our luggage. With the smaller engine, it doesn't accelerate as fast, but cruises just fine. We weren't interested in a van with lots of bells and whistles (no need for automatic doors, etc. just more that can go wrong). This van has everything we need. A/C, AM/FM CD/cassette, cruise. Fuel economy is a plus. Also, my wife and daughter were recently hit by a red light runner in this van, it was easily repaired, and more importantly neither were hurt. Safety is a plus.
Great Ride
We Bought the Caravan without the stow and go seats for the comfort of the second row captian chairs. Took family to motortrend car show and made them sit in seats for half an hour. Teenagers appreciated the comfort of captain chairs and the entertainment (DVD) system. This is a life saver on long road trips. Have 100,000 on the van with ALOT of road trips. No problems whatsoever. Replaced Battery once, brakes every 40,000 miles, and the ERG once at 85,000. OEM tires lasted 65,000 miles, replaced with Michelins. Good value and no problems--would buy buy again if they didn't switch to stow and go seats.

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Dodge Caravan?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
