This Van Is A Beast — 3.8 V6 had a great sound to it. With the pedal down, the power just isn't there. GVWR is over 8,000 lbs so it's hard to get this thing to accelerate. Lots of body roll, but AWD keeps everything composed in any terrain/condition. Brakes aren't as touchy as most vans I've drove but worked good. I had fun driving this van. Top speed only limited by drag...got it to 105 mph. Typical surface rust on lower edges of vehicle and undercarriage. Love the visibility with the short hood and huge windows all around. Interior styling is minimal but very practical. Exterior styling seems very bland. I don't like the appearance of vans in general, but the 1999 Plymouth Voyager front fascia was much better than the Dodge or Chrysler ones IMO.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

I Would Gladly Own A Fleet Of These — I have never owned a vehichle that can carry 60 boxes of hardwood flooring by day and 7 people in comfort at night.it has more than enough power. just to make it even sweeter i have less than $1000 dollars invested in it including purchase price! unbeatable

Work Horse — This van is comfortable and reliable, have had some issues with the suspension, especially the shocks and linkage, including the tie end rods and strut tower upper mount. Found that this defect is common for the Dodge and Chrysler vans. Overall if you stay on top of these issues this van will last forever....

99 Grand Caravan,dependable And Safe. — Excellent van that accelerates well and handles perfectly. It's a dependable vehicle and a nice quiet ride. Cleaned and shined this is a beautiful van but like any van, it requires due diligence to keep it looking good. The seats come out easily making it easy to keep up. Gas mileage is anywhere from 18 to 23 depending on how well it's tuned. If the mileage decreases, it might be time for new plugs. All in all, the 99 is a good year for this model.

Great Family Vehicle For Long And Short Trips. — We bought our van with 42k miles on it. We now have 105k miles on it and very few issues. We've relaced the power steering pump and pulley, drivers power window assembly, drivers side rear power window motor (pop out qtr window), transmisiion speed sensor, brakes and tires. It's been great for us around town and on trips. We put a hitch on it to tow a trailer and our boat. It does the job but the mileage drops to about half (really sucks the gas) and you can tell it's working pretty hard to even pull a 1500 pound trailer. The 7 seats really come in handy when family comes to town and removing them makes lots of room for hauling kids stuff to college.

Primary Use: Family transportation

life span- almost 180,000 miles and still kicking

Cons

the normal things you would expect to be problems with an old car

1999 Dodge Caravan — performance- almost 10th year of owning and the electicity is a bit off and it rattles when i brake at high speeds, overall still rides smooth and is comfortable build quality- 180,000 miles and still runs well, overall it is execllent only real problem ever was the transmission had to be rebuilt 2 years ago, other than that it has been a dream. trunk door window rattles when you back up appearance- desperate need of a paint job, new rims. leather has maintained well execpt driver side which start ripping after 8 years. a seat cover makes in unnoticable though cost of ownership- poor gas mileage which keeps declining as van ages. fun factor- lots of space inside and rides smooth

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan — I did like that the Sport edition came with a 3.8 V6 and it made the van pretty quick, even for a minivan, and luckily enough the transmission never quit, it's usually the first thing to go. It wasn't the funniest thing to drive but then again it was a minivan and it surved it's purpose

Transmissions are fragile!!

Best Minivan Ever Made!!! — I abused this car as much as i could!! I broke 2 transmissions and a mirror on it. For it's known transmission problem the sport version did not have that problem but required a 3.8 L engine. I had the 3.3 L engine with a few minor adjustments that minivan rly pushed it. I even beat up a Grand AM GT 2003!!

This Is A Gorgeous Looking Van And The Interoir Is Just As Wonderful. — the engine compartment is alittle tight and the trannies have a very bad rep. this is not my first dodge mini van but this is my first one that is beginning to give me issues with the trans. it's strange because all were bought used this one is the newest
