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


Bought this Grand Caravan SXT with 19K and 11 months old. Paid extra for extended warranty, got my money's worth after replacing the Door motors SEVEN TIMES! Now post warranty, driver's side only opens auto (no manual door motor clutch stuck), passenger side is only manual, door motor shot. Radiator rusted at 80K, now just dies with no notice, no error code while on HWY at 50+ miles an hour. Hey Chrysler, try a curve at 55 with no power steering %^&*! Dealers and my mechanic can't find anything, no error codes. AC controls on dash, lights flicker on/off, poor solder in unit, had to replace. NOT SAFE, get a HONDA 2011 Odyssey like I did. Still have this Caravan for I can't sell it, unsafe!

Best Features

Room, purchased for kids & dogs, won't entrust my family's lives in this.

Worst Features

Go out of business! The Gov't should never have bailed you out, the market had spoken, your quality is poor. You just cut and cut to the point of endangering the lives of your customers. Since the Govt owns you, they should use your products for target practice until the inventory is gone!
