Should have put on more miles on sooner

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


Loved it at first, but having electrical problems with less than 4000 miles. Software upgrade(scary) and two control modules later-still having the same problems. Starts with blower speed control working inconsistently, then dash lights go on or off or light up like a Christmas tree and the vehicle may stall. Going back to the dealer tomorrow. Still have my 95 CaravanSE, love it-hoped the 08 would be the same. Afraid to drive the 08. Also a bit of a whistle under the hood. Body "dings" easily, thin sheet metal? I will say-after a year of looking, was set to buy an Odyssey, but the Honda dealer was pretty arrogant, so went across the street and bought the Dodge, they appreciated my business.

Best Features

Nice solid ride and handling. Handles well in snow / ice conditions. Great kid car. Safety features are the best available. Good value for your buck.

Worst Features

Rear bench seat is a fixed position, does not slide back for more leg room. Rear bench seating is too cramped for adults but fine for kids. Alarm/horn sounds when you lock the car - annoys the neighbors when you get home late at night, a softer tone like on Toyota would be better.
