2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Crew 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


No serious problems so far. There is a profound wind noise next to the upper doors' corner when windy. Also, when raining, water collects inside the cavity of left side rear view mirror making "running water" noise. Performed M38 transmission update and it shifts better. Needs more improvements though. Noticed a small stain of oil sediment text to the head gasket 4th cylinder. Will keep monitoring. There is a vibration on steering wheel with moderate braking. With heavy braking there is no problem. Michelin tires are good match for this minivan. Drives very good. Quiet inside. Everything in working order. Average MPG: 19.5 (city). On freeway, best was 24.3 at 75mph. Overall - very satisfied.

Best Features

Powerfull engine. Maybe too powerfull for minivan. Stow N Go seats. Removable center console. Halo light. Sun shades on rear. Heated steering wheel. Stow N Go cross bars.

Worst Features

Transmission! Worst part of the minivan. Period. MPG is very bad with and w/o Eco mode. Antirust protection. There are areas prone to rust - yet not protected. Brakes - 6mm (rear)-7mm(front) thick after 30K miles. This is good. Bad is vibration coming out when braking. And finally: Dealerships - service and everything else. Incompetence and denials are widespread. They try to compensate for missing knowledge with denials. You have to act very rude for them to listen.
