What a Lemon! On to Toyota!

1997 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 4dr Minivan AWD


We bought this second hand 1997 Grand Caravan LE AWD with 30k klm's on it. Now it has 84,000 km on it and it's literally falling apart. Rusting, brakes, transmission, phantom wipers, electrical, underbody rust etc....it's simply pathetic the problems this relatively new car has. Already this year, we've dropped approx $3,000 into it, figuring it's the cost, but a pattern was starting to develop where this thing was simply not reliable. Then the van starting mysteriously not starting or just going "click" and turning of!Then, the gears starting malfunctioning, put the van in Reverse and it goes forward! Drove it to Toyota the other day and traded it in...bubye

Best Features

The promise of a reliable family van.

Worst Features

It's a lemon - scrap it! My advice, buy a second hand later model Toyota or Honda - truly reliable and fantastic cars. Don't get suckered like I did!
