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


We just bought this brand new, yes 2008 we purchased in June 2009 with 50 miles on it. We drove 500 miles on vacation and the engine (power train) blew while on expressway going 65 miles/hr. We've owned the van for 2 weeks to the day. Of course, the dealership was closed in the town we were in...bottom line we had to rent a van for $120/day for our family of 6. We will be reimbused a whole $375 for "trip interruption insurance". However, we are now home withOUT our "new" broken van. It's 500 miles away waiting for a "part" that isn't due for 5 more days. Once the van it fixed we have to find a way to our vehicle and pick it up. We will NEVER buy another Dodge, ever!

Best Features

My kids loved the entertainment pkg for the first two weeks till the powertrain blew and we have no vehicle now.

Worst Features

The powertrain. And a return policy if repair taking more than 5 days is needed within first 30 days of ownership. I'm disgusted to say the least.
