A basic people hauler

2006 Dodge Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Performance is fair to good. Acceleration from a stop is mediocre, but at highway speed passing acceleration is very good. Ride is good and comfort is very good. The standard Caravan is more reliable than the Grand Caravan (backed up by Consumer Reports), probably because it has fewer creature comforts. If you are looking for a basic people hauler that is also comfortable for long trips, gets decent mileage (better than the larger engine of the Grand Caravan), is fun to drive and nice looking, the Caravan is a solid choice.

Best Features

Rear DVD option, capable sound system, removable rear seats create spacious cargo area, relatively comfortable third row bench

Worst Features

I really have no complaints. I would say more space, but if that's what you need look at the Grand Caravan. If you can live without power doors and Sto-n-Go, the standard Caravan is a great choice.
