2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


08 grand caravan sxt & in that time the automatic stow rear seats serviced every 3 months or at every oil change because they will not stow or they get stuck in stow mode. My sliding doors are ALWAYS broken, i.e. the button does not work them, or they start to up but slide back. Navigation system had to be replaced. Front brakes wore out at 13,000 miles (Pads and rotors). Rear brake pads and rotors wore out at 22,000 miles. Transmission got stuck in gear and would not go into manual mode. Dealership repaired-said it was a computer communication problem due to a "loose wire". Transmission problems again 3 days after 1st tranny repair! Do NOT BUY this VAN! Buyers BEWARE!

Best Features

If and when this van actually works properly, it is nice. Extra features make it luxurious, DVD player, shades for windows, auto stow seats (DO NOT GET THIS FEATURE!), seat heaters (front & back), nav system, rear back up camera, great extras. It is best to get manual seats-auto not worth trouble!

Worst Features

Fix electrical glitches. Make luxury features more durable. SXT is not a model for those who do heavy camping and such. Brakes totally STINK! I suggest replacing brakes with super good NON-manufact. 10,000 miles after you buy. Fix the computer system. Make the can more durable all over for FAMILIES!
