1996 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3dr Minivan


Review

We bought this van because we wanted to
upgrade from our other van we wanted to
have the sliding door on the driver's
side and rear air. What a mistake to
buy this van. I had the transmission
replaced twice. The air conditioner
has one speed now. The starter has
been replaced three times. It leaks
gas there is just no end to the
problems. Now the dash is cracked. I
think it is the worst. I would never
buy Dodge again.


Best Features

I can fit my three kids in it.


Worst Features

Everything

Review

We love having a mini van it great and
very pratical. Ive put 50k on it, but
the van has 148000. Just starting to
leek fluid. Only repair was a water
pump. Great family vehicle and travel
vehicle.


Best Features

Ave 21mpg, lot of room so my three kid don't have to touch each other. I bought it used so we park it any where.


Worst Features

I really had to think, the only one I can think of is......build a screen so I can not hear the kids.

Review

I bought this car with 96164 miles on
it. Except for intermitent wipers I
didn't have a sinle problm until I
reached around 120000 miles. First, my
engine started to leak oil, every 300-
500 miles I have to add 1 quarter. My
AC compressor died (don't know what's
wrong with it, maybe it's just
bearing), power window's electric motor
on passenger side burned out, . Don't
have problem with transmission.


Best Features

Size - I put the whole 1 1/2 size refrigerator in van


Worst Features

I don't think that they can improve anything. Let them offer 10years/100000 miles warranty, at least.

Review

This van is nearly perfect, except for
one major flaw; the transmission. We
had to have it fixed three times and,
if I wasn't trading it tomorrow, it
would be going in for a fourth time.


Best Features

There are many nice features, but I really like the way it rides.


Worst Features

Put more effort into designing a dependable transmission.

Review

We bought the car used at 45,000
miles. In three years, we've had
numerous major repairs including one
where the engine had to be totally
disassembled. The transmission needed
to be replaced at a hefty expense. The
radio has been replaced FOUR times in
three years. We've also had trouble
with the ABS light, cruise control has
failed, wipers go on and off
spontaneously ... the list goes on.
This is the least reliable vehicle
we've ever owned, and we can't wait to
get rid of it.


Best Features

Drives well ... that is, when it's not in the shop for repairs.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. More reliable.
