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


We bought our van fully loaded back in March 08. It has everything, 4.0L engine, the works. Overall, it's a really nice vehicle. However; we have had nothing but problems with this vehicle. As of Jan 10th 09 we've had this vehicle in to have the thermostat replaced 8 times. It's been declared a lemon. The transmission has started leaking fluid, the sliding doors do what they want to. It looses heat from time to time. The remote start works when it wants to. We went to trade this vehicle in for something else and it has depreciated value by $22,000. I almost fainted. We bought the van for $36,000 and I tried to trade it in, and was offered $14,000. Buyers beware.

Best Features

As far as features, it's a really nice vehicle. We love the sliding doors (when functional). The folding 3rd row seats are cool. We have the swivel seats so that leave a ton of storage under the floor. The DVD system is awsome, love the 2 screens, plus the one in the dash. It's got a lot of pep.

Worst Features

Get the engine situation straightened out. Bring back All-Wheel drive as an option if you get the swivel seats. The UConnect is a little suspect at times. Add the ambient lighting in the floor as well. Add a light in the (In-Floor) storage bay. Improve the build materials. Cheap plasticy feel.
