2009 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


This is a kind of no frills Grand Caravan that retails for around 25k. The drivers window sticks, you have to slam almost every door for them to shut properly. You can actually see how things don't line up around the door seams. It handles very stiffly. It has a nice design inside and out but the plastic inside makes it cheap looking. This is a company car and it will be put through its paces. The tranny won't hold on a hill, it rolls backward. The driver seat is very uncomfortable. I got caught in the snow and it slid around like a big sled. I was actually very concerned i would wind up in a ditch. I won't take it out in the snow again. Seems a bit underpowered.

Best Features

Looks great for a van inside and out. Except for the cheap plastic wheel covers. Stow and go is a great feature, everything folds down flat and the van gives you plenty of room, especially in the back seat area.

Worst Features

Better build quality. Everything seems so cheaply done. more standard features in the base models. Everything must be extra because it really didn't come with much.
