1997 Dodge Grand Caravan ES 4dr Minivan AWD


This is my third Dodge Caravan and the best of them. I've been driving this 1997 for 80k+ miles and I keep it in good condition with regular maintenance. The steering rack is the only major part that needed replacing. With 4 kids and a lot of very local driving, this is perfect for mom. The car is spacious, comfortable and easy to drive. Mine is AWD, which brings additional comfort in traction during wet or snowy weather. Very happy with it.

Best Features

Sliding doors on both sides, makes it easy to get kids and cargo. Sound system is great. Having air conditioning and heating units in the back are fantastic to cool/heat the back of the van quickly.

Worst Features

The spare storage tray in the center under the radio is flimsy and easy to break (and keep breaking). Better gas mileage (barely gets 20 mpg on highway). Windows that roll down on the side doors would be great too.
