2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Just ended 6000 miles through the western mountains and desert carrying 4 Adults, 3 kids, and a rooftop carrier with 110# of camping stuff. Total load 1250#. 1 tank @ 17 mpg in San Fransisco, all others range from 19 to 25.2 mpg. That's real world driving at 75 - 85 mph with the A/C on the whole time. Friends with Honda and Toyota minivans can't touch this mileage under similar conditions! I'm very happy as gas was $3.50/gal in Needles! Perfect design. 1st 4 seats provide absolute comfort for adults up to 6' 1" 250#! In mountain driving, 8 consecutive switchbacks in Silverton-Ouray region were a dream. With this load, it accelerated up 8% grades easily to 75mph. It has a great feel, not Honda harsh. Has the best price, features, economy, and handling in its class! Very solidly built. Great fit and finish and material use. Buy it!

Best Features

Powerful, but best economy in class! Great layout with all but one control. Able to have 3 phones & 2 cameras charging at same time. Super visibility & comfort for all 7 passengers. Quiet even with the sunroof open. Storage is unbelievable!

Worst Features

The interior light dimmer could be placed better, and improve the cupholders for 2nd row seats.
