the good, bad and ugly
By Jeremy on


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


The stow and go is great. There is very good room for our family of five. It is the most economical vehicle in it's class. The power doors are a nice feature. The bad are: Had glitch in transmission, scared me into purchasing an extended warranty. New brakes after 30K miles. Key fob & PL doors failed @ about 45K miles paid dealership to flash computer again ($140) which I felt should be warranty issue. Ugly: replaced the front end bushings & rods @ 51K miles ($420)(dealership says is common issue). replaced passenger power sliding side module ($350). driver side cable and motor ($500). not good for a 3 yr old vehicle....

Best Features

stow & go, space, power, control, ride (when front end is ok)

Worst Features

stereo, quality of products used in manufacturing. cover "flash" upgrades under warranty (if it wasn't right the first time, don't make customer pay for corrections). fix issues with side doors!!!
