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


I really needed a vehicle and preferred a van due to all the running around I had to do. However, buyer beware. Was not aware that Dodge still built 2.2L size engines. MY MISTAKE. What a piece of crap. Brakes have had to be replaced 3 times. The drums rotated, the shocks are bad (off the lot) the transmission modulator evidently doesn't last more than 28,000 miles and on our second one. Airbags didn't deploy when we hit a deer and had almost 6,000 dollars damage - otherwise we would have been able to total it. Heater doesn't work all the time. The dealer even sold me a bogus warranty. Again women... be aware when buying your own vehicle for the first time. Take someone who knows. Avoid DODGE

Best Features

CD player. oh, but wait... that's bad now too.

Worst Features

NEVER EVER BUILD a 2.2 liter engine to haul the titanic. What were you thinking? Gas mileage stinks beyond words. Dealers didn't even want it as a trade in.
