1998 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan


We have 114000 miles in our 98 Dodge
Grand Caravan SE. First of all the 3.0
V6 is very slow. When I drive it, I
have trouble keeping up with the flow
of traffic. Around the 110000 mile
mark we started having all these
problems. First of all, we noticed
that there's a putt-putt sound when
you first start accelerating
(acceleration hesitates) after you
start the van up. The 4 speed auto
shifts were taking forever. We were up
at 4000 rpm's hitting the gas normally
before it shifted. Then the brakes
started sweaking. We got some of these
problems fixed at the dealer but the
putt-putt and longer shifting(slightly
improved)were still there.

Best Features

room and comfort, that's about it, many better minivan buys out there

Worst Features

need good reliability like imports, and need way better acceleration,Never another domestic minivan again!
