Not the Most Reliable Van
By Matt on


1998 Dodge Grand Caravan 4dr Minivan


We bought the van with 96K and so far had a few major things that needed fixing. The transmission went on it twice while the computer needed replacing and the rain gutters in front of the passenger compartment got clogged and flooded the interior. The passenger side power window still doesnt work. As far as a daily driver it's one of the best minivans as far as the interior goes. There are lots of cupholders and storage compartments and theres plenty of room for all. The Mitsubishi 3.0 V6 is smooth and is not bad on gas. It also has adequate acceleration as long as you dont have alot of people or cargo. The transmission is a crummy 3-speed that isnt a good aide for highway mileage.

Best Features

Lots of room. Tons of cup holders and storage space. Decently smooth and economical V6. Dual sliding doors. Chrysler makes one of the best stock sound systems. Ours is the Dolby AM/FM/Cassette with 6 speakers.

Worst Features

More reliable transmission. There also shouldn't be a 3-speed in this new of a car. The rear defroster should also come standard. Better engineering when it comes to getting rid of rain water. Seats that fold flat.
