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


At first glance, it's a lot of van for the money. I was most impressed with the Entertainment option. However, I had the van for 3 days and returned it. In 3 days of driving, the 3rd row video screen stopped working 2x, the pass sliding door would not close 5x (closed, then opened), overhead console rattles, remote for the DVD didn't work, music copy function didn't work on the radio, and the exterior panels are not even. Look at the gap between the hood and fenders. This van has a lot of nice features - a lot of features that will keep you coming in for service of intermittent problems Also, the van w swivel seats is not crash test rated, but others are 5 star. HMMMM

Best Features

Ability to play 2 DVD's simulataneously and listen to the radio. Ability to purchase the entertainment system without purchasing all the options you don;t want. Backup camera.

Worst Features

Improve video quality on screens. For over $2000 the picture quality is terrible. Bring back the integrated child seats. You can't get to the 3rd row with 2 car seats in the middle. Improve the fit and finish and stop using the cheapest feeling plastic made. Improve reliability of electronics.
