Pros: Great Highway Gas Mileage, Stow N Go is handy, U Connect. Cons: transmission shifts poorly (especially with ECO), engine valve tick (seems to happen on all of these 3.6 engines) soft paint with hundreds of stone chips on front bumper, hood, and fender flares, unprotected rusty oil pan, and thin sheet metal. The sliding doors rattle and need electrical tape on the latches to help reduce the noise. My Kia Sedona is in much better shape at twice the age.
** update - I sold the 2011 Caravan and kept my 2007 Sedona.
Run away! Unless it's not important to you that your car starts reliably and you have control over the electronics system. If you're considering buying this car, do yourself a favor and Google TIPM. It's a pain in the neck at least, and dangerous at worst. I will never buy another Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep vehicle after seeing how they handled an electronic system that they know is defective.
My 2011 dodge caravan has 60000 miles on it. The vehicle has a defective fuel pump relay which dodge is aware of but refuses to recall. The vehicle also has an electricle problem causing a no crank no start issue that left me stranded many time. Repair costs for the vehicle reached $1200. Do not buy this vehicle or any other dodge product!
Dodge is doing away with their Dodge Grand Caravan. This vehicle is so nice. We have the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Crew and we love it! It has a lot of bells and whistles that came standard and is not standard on the newer models. We fill up the tank and drive over 9 hours to visit our son in college and drive around the town for a couple of days before having to put any more gas in it! The gas mileage (especially when the ECON button is pushed) is fantastic!!! We have had very little need to visit the dealership service department except for oil changes. We did wear the liftgate struts out and they had to be replaced a couple of weeks ago. Plus, there was a recall on the rear window vent button in the driver's door which was fixed. Other than that, the only other expense is that we had to have the rotors turned and the break pads replaced and new tires, all this fall.
