Vehicle2014 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
ReviewThis is my fifth minivan. These are not the minivans of old.
I bought the AVP with some upgrades.
Just got back off long trip, got 20 mpg in the city, and 29.5 mpg highway, with 24.7 with a mix situation. After 60000 miles, not one mechanical issue. Big vehicle to get 29 mpg on highway. Just wish it rode a little less bus-like. Has no resale value. Don't understand why such a quality vehicle is subject to such distain.
Used the stow and go seats variable positions for a different need everyday.
I love the handling. I love the cab forward design, easy to see the road and park.
The ride can be a little bouncy, but not bothersome.
I have the base seats but they are very comfortable.
I had a long drive at night and can see the road much easier than in a sedan.
The best value in a vehicle period.
My only complaint is that the transmission wants to shift out and then back down in the hills.

Dodge has let the tall driver down in regard to the driver's seat. I have owned 4 Caravans since 1985. I recently tried a 2014 "GrandA Caravan" and my knees hit the steering wheel despite the limited adjustments one can make with the base seat. They do offer a power seat on the SXT and that has adjustments, but your forced to pay upwards of $5000 more to upgrade to be allowed to get tghe power seat. After 29 years of enjoying Caravans, I will b looking elsewhere. I submitted a concern to Dodge and the response back was sorry about that, but we don't take consumer concerns, w just deal with focus groups. Well thanks Dodge I'll b sure to let people know that you don't take consumer concerns seriously as I drive in my Honda Odyssey.Report it
