Wouldn't get another one

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


Overall, our '08 Grand Caravan SXT is a good vehicle but I wouldn't get another one. As one reviewer said, this car EATS BRAKES. Replaced the fronts at approx. 20K miles and the rears at 25K miles. I didn't replace my rear brakes on my '02 Mustang until 90K miles. Rear brakes do 10% of the stopping work. No reason for rear brakes to be replaced so early. Absurd. Chrysler did reimburse me $93 for the brakes (I spent $200 for all 4 brakes). Had a few trips to the dealership because the A/C didn't blow cold air and the radiator cap was leaking (both recalls). As far as fuel economy, we averaged 23 MPG on a trip to Boston. Most of the driving is city driving and we get 17MPG.

Best Features

Stow-n-go, room, comfort, good power, automatic doors and lift-gate.

Worst Features

Brake system needs complete overhaul, better fuel economy, better tires, better stereo system.
