1997 Dodge Grand Caravan ES 4dr Minivan


Bought new 1997 Grand Caravan SE with
5-year, 100k service. Great ride,
good mileage, modest power, seats easy
to remove/install, huge cargo
capacity. Changed oil every 3k and
followed service schedule at dealers
for the first five years. Headaches
(all after warranty): A/C compressor
and dryer died, front rotors replaced,
still act "warped". (Dealer) Battery
recently shorted and damaged the
starter. Phantom wipers, console
rattle, "heavy" sliding door.
Planning to sell before I loose my
first transmission.

Best Features

Driver-side sliding door, cargo capacity, good ride.

Worst Features

Mechanical and build quality. Brigts are a joke. I'm afraid of loosing the transmission like so many others. I think my problems are just beginning.
