Grand Caravan: Latin for Money Pit
By dotweasl on


1996 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3dr Minivan


I thought I was the only person who
called it a money pit. I bought it from
my SISTER who had maintained the car
flawlessly for 6 years. After 2 weeks
the AC went out. 4 weeks later it
wouldn't go into reverse. A week later
it wouldn't shift out of gear at 30mph.
Then the AC went out again and now it's
not shifting gears. RUN AWAY! RUN FAST!
DON'T LOOK BACK! Did I mention the
strangulation sound it makes when the
automatic door locks engage? Explain
that when you're driving a client to
lunch. That's easy: IT'S A MONEY PIT!
RUN FAST! My transmission guy said if
it weren't for the Caravans, he
wouldn't have any business. RUN AWAY!

Best Features

The driver's side back door is a dream. I can't imagine not having this door with an infant car seat.

Worst Features

Make a transmission that will last 100,000 miles. Or how about an A/C that will blow cool air without replacing the compressor every other year. Or maybe labeling it a 5 year throw away car so you know it will be junked and not suitable for resale.
