1997 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 4dr Minivan


We bought the Grand Caravan Sport model
new and have been fairly satisfied. It
has been reasonably reliable(knock on
wood). It now has 70000+ miles and
still runs and drives good. Issues we
have experienced: replaced MOPAR
battery twice within first three years
(warranty repair), replaced CD player
(warranty repair),broken driver side
mirror, phantom wipers, water pump
replaced recently (not unusual for
70,000 mile car). Amazingly, the
exhaust still works good (I usually
have to replace a muffler or pipes by
now). Car has the 3.3 liter engine and
seems a bit weak going up long inclines
or passing. Not enough HP and torque
for this heavy vehicle.

Best Features

This is a great long haul car with the family. It's comfortable and has lots of room for suitcases and vacation toys. I recently rented a Chryco Town and Country van and like the interior in my 97 better than the 2003 T&C.

Worst Features

More horsepower and torque from existing engine offerings.
