2005 Dodge Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


The air bag light and warning bell came on and stayed on. It was fixed. That lasted 3 days and it went out again. The dealer replaced a wiring harness that was bad. The rear tailgate could only be opened with the key, so the dealer replaced the power lock unit. The passenger side window wouldn't go down, teh dealer replaced regulator to the power window. If I have this many problems with a new car,what happens when the warranty is up? This vehicle with 4 adults and a 2 yr old on a trip of over 500 miles got at one point 27 mpg and averaged about 22 mpg on the trip. That was in the mountains of KY, TN and NC. The DVD unit is a good babysitter. Sirius satellite radio is good too. Rides good, but I'm afraid of reliablity.

Best Features

Gas mileage, DVD, Sirius satellite radio, heated leather seats, comfortable ride

Worst Features

Better reliablity from factory. Locate power window switches in flat area. It causes leg discomfort on a trip with the bulge for switches. Relocate the reset button for trip mileage indicator
