2002 Dodge Grand Caravan eL Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My wife and I are in our 50's, the kids
are gone, and this is the 1st Caravan
we have owned. We should have had one
years ago! We replaced a Pontiac
Bonneville with this van, and love the
convienence, comfort and versatility of
this vehicle. We will replace it with
another Dodge Grand Caravan.


Best Features

Duel comfort zones up front, and the tight turning radius of this vehicle are both great features. You sit up high and can see much more than from the normal car seat height.


Worst Features

Develope a gas/electric drive train. Buy it from Toyota if you have to! There needs to be a better fuel econ option to make this a really useful vehicle in coming years.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my van used with 29,000
miles on it. At first I thought it
was great we got a great deal etc...
well now every 15,000 mile it needs
breaks, acceleraton is slow when the
air is on. The tensioner belt has
squealed since the 2nd month of
ownership, problems with the rack and
pinion sterring, had the ac fixed
($1200). Now the transmission is
starting to have problems. I call to
make an appt and one dealer is a month
behind to get it in, another is at
least 2 weeks. I will NEVER buy one
again. Thinking of buying an Odyssey.


Best Features

It does have a lot of room.


Worst Features

Brakes, transmission, AC

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport AWD 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, a very good vehicle. This is
my third Caravan. Very comfortable on
the road. The Touring suspension and
ABS helped avoid a seroius accident;
the car was very stable in an evasive
move. Dynamite infinity stereo although
the headphones are too difficult for
the kids to work (me too). Problems:
power sliding door, oil leak at the
filter flange, transmission shifts hard
from 1st to 2nd under light load.


Best Features

It dosen't take off like a rocket but it stops well. Power rear hatch door is great. Trunk organizer is always in use especially for those little plastic bags of groceries.


Worst Features

Passenger front seat needs to be lower or offer power driver and passenger seats on all models. Build quality is good but not great. I had a 2001...the dealer ripped me off $400 for front brakes. Don't go to the dealer for brake pads!!!!

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Nice looking van inside/out. Very
comfortable & somewhat quiet ride.
Controls are conveniently laid out.
Love the dual & rear climate controls.
The V6 engine is powerful w/great
acceleration. Only problems I had was
exterior trim pieces at windshield &
driver side sliding door came loose.
Overall, great van. I just traded it
in for its sibling, a Chrysler Town &
Country LX only because I was getting
close to 36K miles and as many already
know, Dodge/Chrysler's reliability
record is not one to brag about,
although it makes good looking
vehicles.


Best Features

Comfortable, smooth ride, awesome acceleration, dual climate control, easy roll out of center and rear bench, although somewhat heavy.


Worst Features

Poor gas milage, exterior quality (integrity) can be better.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan eX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Ovarall a very good vehicle. For a
good sized minivan, it is rather
nimble on the road and rolls easily
(better than my 1998. Good interior
and comfortable seats. Power sides
doors and tailgate work flawlessly.
Vehicle is somewhat underpowered and
would be better served by a 5-speed
automatic transmission rather than the
4-speed. Transmission braking is
useless. Uses a bit of oil.


Best Features

Power sliding doors and tailgate.


Worst Features

Increase power and 5-speed automatic transmission.
