The good and the bad
By Scott on


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


I have had positive and negative experiences. The van has run well, with good acceleration and a smooth comfortable ride. The handling is very good. The Stow N Go seats are a great option. Electronic doors and liftgate work well. A/C is powerful and easy to regulate. On the negative side, my fuel economy is poor. At best I've averaged 18 mpg per tankful, and lately it's dipped down below 17mpg, even though a good part of my driving is highway. I'm also disappointed with the interior craftsmanship. Pieces of plastic have broken off the Stow N Go seats even though I haven't folded them away very much. Factory stereo is just fair. Various taillight bulbs have needed replacement already.

Best Features

Auto side doors and liftgate. Stow N Go seats. Acceleration and smooth ride. Handling.

Worst Features

Better quality materials in the interior, especially on fold away seats. Improved fuel economy. Better sound system
