Edmunds' Expert Review

Though the 2007 Dodge Caravan might appeal to tight-budget families in need of a no-frills minivan, it is otherwise outclassed by newer and more desirable competitors.

vehicle overview

With more than 10 million sold, the Dodge Caravan has long been a favorite of families on a budget. Though diminutive relative to some other minivans, it offers seating for seven and ample cargo space when its seats are removed. Of all its sterling traits, though, none is more impressive than its price tag. Available for less than 20 large, the 2007 Dodge Caravan is one of the most affordable choices in the minivan segment.

This year, the Dodge Caravan does not receive any significant changes or upgrades. As always, it remains popular with customers who need a seven-passenger vehicle but can't afford or don't want a pricier alternative. It does not offer luxury features like leather seats or triple-zone climate control, and it keeps things simple, offering only two trim levels. (There is also a Grand Caravan long-wheelbase model, and a CV cargo van geared toward customers seeking a low-cost vehicle for business use.) However, we think most buyers will be happier with other minivans, despite the potential price increase. Vehicles like the Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona and smaller Mazda 5 are better choices overall due to their superior comfort, driving dynamics, features and quality.

Trim levels & features

With only two trim levels to choose from, picking out a Dodge Caravan is relatively easy. (There's also a cargo van version, the CV, that offers options for configuring a Caravan as a work vehicle.) The base SE is equipped with a four-cylinder engine, 15-inch steel wheels, dual sliding doors with an alert system, a CD stereo, air-conditioning and bench seating in the second and third rows. Stepping up to the SXT model adds 16-inch alloy wheels; dual-zone manual air-conditioning (with separate controls for the rear); power door locks, windows and mirrors; remote keyless entry; second-row bucket seats and a tilt steering wheel. Many of the features fitted to the SXT can be had as options on the SE, including power windows, locks and mirrors. Popular stand-alone options include a rear-seat DVD-based entertainment system, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity (which Chrysler has dubbed the UConnect Hands-Free Communication System) and power-adjustable pedals.

2007 Highlights

There are no significant changes this year.

Performance & mpg

The 2007 Dodge Caravan has two engine offerings. The SE comes with a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine that makes 150 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque. The SXT comes with a 3.3-liter V6 good for 170 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. Both are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.

Safety

Front disc/rear drum brakes are standard, and ABS is optional on the SXT only. All Caravans include a driver knee airbag. Full-length side curtain airbags are optional on both the SE and SXT, and neither traction- nor stability control is available. The 2007 Dodge Caravan has posted good crash test scores in government crash testing, netting five out of five stars for driver and front-passenger protection in frontal impacts. In side impacts, it earned four stars for front-occupant protection and a perfect five stars for rear-occupant protection. In frontal offset crash testing performed by the IIHS, it earned an "acceptable" rating – the second highest.

Driving

Thanks to its slightly smaller size than the average minivan, the 2007 Dodge Caravan possesses respectable handling ability. However, newer competitors are better at providing a balance between ride quality and handling. While the four-cylinder base engine provides adequate power for daily errands and commuting, it can get buzzy and loud at higher speeds. We recommend upgrading to the V6, which is superior when hauling people or cargo at speed.

Interior

The Dodge Caravan can seat up to seven people. When fully occupied, the space behind the third row seats provides 15 cubic feet of luggage space. By removing the second and third row seats (they conveniently fold into the floor), 147 cubic feet of storage become available. The Caravan also includes thoughtful, useful touches like rear seat-back-mounted grocery bag hooks and a lockable under-seat storage drawer.

If you can only have one vehicle, this is it
paparx,02/14/2012
Caravans and Town & Country, is the same vehicle with minor trim changes. Chrysler has always shined with these vans. Durable mechanics, cheap maintenance and long mileage are very common. Size, comfort and road holding are wonderful as are fit and finish. If you want wood and leather in a minivan fine, but these are family tools that hauls in comfort safety and reliability. With minor tire shock and performance chip upgrades these little vans fairly sail around town. Our short version is in my mind the best. Fitting in small spaces, more sporty handling but giving up little in capacity. If its been fairly well maintained it is hard to go wrong with these vans.
Noisy transmission and road noise
GRAND CARAVAN,10/11/2008
This is the noisiest car I have ever driven. Sounds like the transmission is already in trouble after only 4000 miles and earlier. The road noise is awful . Could be the tires. Will take it back to the dealer next week, but compared to my 2000 Voyager its just noisier and parts internally and externally seem flimsier. Hope they are not going back to their old poor workmanship compared to Japanese cars.
my grand caravan
wirler,01/07/2010
this van has a 3.3l engine.it has very good respond.I buy it with 36000 miles. I noticed hard down shift from 2d to 1rs gear when making a full stop. I took it to the dealer and they fixed the problem re flashing the computer software. other than that,not problems.we love our van. my 2 kids like having more than enough space.
VLT Transmission problems
willie Hodess,02/21/2008
Driving and comfort not an issue, the caravan performs. It's the transmission thats driving me crazy. When slowing down the tranny is trying to downshift 2nd to 1st is a real pain. The clunking or grabbing is a real nuisance. What's worse is Wellington motors is denying that Chrysler had issues with this tranny and still is selling these vans. Chrysler Canada aside from trying to give me $50 gift certs.keeps telling me their engineers are looking into it. I have been told that the fix would be there early Aug.2007 that was moved out to the end of Sept to the new year and now I havent heard from anyone.

Should I lease or buy a 2007 Dodge Caravan?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
