By Renae on


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


My family has had Grand Caravans since 1998. Loved them up until the 2008 Grand Caravan. It is a nice car to drive and comfortable but too many problems. Here are the problems: antifreeze leak when purchased new-- took 2 repairs, roof rack bars in wrong position and on backwards, have had 1 shock replaced, 1 strut replaced, front brakes and rotors at 29,000 mi, back electrical "cage" in ceiling loose, rear bumper pad replaced, still squeaks when going over bumps, wind whistling noise, doors don't always open when pushing automatic key fob. Plan to trade for an SUV as soon as I can. Cannot believe this is a $31,000 car.

Best Features

Stow n go seats, adjustable pedals, roll down second windows, auto-dimming rear view mirror, back-up camera and warning sensors, u-connect

Worst Features

Higher quality car. Longer lasting brakes/rotors (parents never replaced rotors on the 98 or 2005 vans)
