1999 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan SE 4dr Minivan


Review

Two sets of tires, one set of brakes and one transmission sensor (warranty) have been the only repairs. 115,000 miles later, I am still getting 18.5 mpg in city, 24.5 mpg crossing the country with family and luggage.


Best Features

3.8 V-6 & rear air.


Worst Features

None

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan SE 4dr Minivan


Review

We skeptically purchased this van with 60K on it after years of being strictly Mercedes/Honda drivers. I'm shocked at just how good the experience has been. It seems from the other reviews that you can also get bad ones too but ours has been trouble free for 30K+. We are planning to sell it and are looking at another Dodge Grand Caravan. Ours is still rattle free and drives exactly like a new van. I drove two others, an 04/05' this week with 25K and 37K and they drove just like ours. We have looked at Odysseys but have found them to be more pricey and more noisy with rattles. If you find a good one they are hard to beat!


Best Features

Car like ride and handling. Excellent power with the 3.3Flex fuel eng. Seats 7 very comfortably. The infinity sound system has excellent sound. It looks like a sports van in comparison to everything else on the road. Very quiet and tight even at 90K.


Worst Features

Perhaps a better warranty even though we haven't had need for it.

Review

I bought this van new and cheap. Thought I was getting a deal. I should have checked this web site first. This van had transmission and engine problems and the back door latch was broken. I owned the vehicle three months and it started to act up. The worst vehicle I've ever owned. I will never buy another Dodge/Chrysler product ever again. Honda Odyssey, Nissan Quest or Mazda MPV is my next choice. We have a transmission place in our area where the owner got rich from repairing Dodge/Chrysler transmissions. This vehicle is dangerous and I feel Chrysler's repeated production of this vehicle exploits women and children.


Best Features

Roomy, smooth ride when it did work.


Worst Features

Dodge/Chrysler needs to start over from scratch and take a lesson from Honda.

This was the best minivan in the 90's?

Review

This minivan was advertised and reviewed
as the best minivan of the 90's. Thank
goodness the 90's are over. This van
has been unreliable. We were a block
from home heading to the airport and
both the input and output transmission
sensors gave out. This was at 4:00 a.m.
and we had to catch a plane at 6:00 a.m.
We have had to replace all four power
window motors, and we have had to
replace the driver's window motor 3
times and it just went bad again. This
vehicle is totally unreliable, and it is
a shame, as the concept is quite good.
Unfortunately, the reality is, this
vehicle sucks!


Best Features

The fact that it is paid off and on the short list of vehicles we own to be sold or traded. Our 1997 Dodge Neon has been more reliable than this POC. That isn't saying much.


Worst Features

Improved quality control and parts. If you have poor parts, then quality control suffers. It doesn't matter if it looks pretty on the outside, if it is ugly underneath. You definitely lost a customer here!

Review

Have owned this Dodge Grand since new.
Has worked great. Very few problems.
If used for city driving can be hard on
front brakes, check them often. Have
serviced the trans regularly, and had
no difficulty.


Best Features

Good design. Roomy. Reasonable power. Handles well for the type of vehicle.


Worst Features

We have the 3.8 liter engine. Stronger than 3.3, but needs more. Seats need more support, especially in the seat back. Roll down windows in middle doors would be a nice addition.
