Great Family Vehicle — I love the Grand Caravan. This is one of the most reliable family vehicles that I have ever owned. We have put ours through hell and it keeps going. Just keep up the regular maintenance and it won't let you down.

Cons

its a minivan

Good Vehicle But Still A Minivan — its just a minivan.....its use is primarily for family transport. it doesn't do well on steep snowy hills, it has a moderate rate of fuel consumption, very comfortable interior, all around parts seem to be available and low priced. the only repairs I've needed to do were normal routine maintenance, and tires. not a very fun car to drive but it's very practical for families.

Awesome Vehicle — I love this van. Been very very dependable for me. Little more cargo room than I really need and people think I'm a taxi with it, but love the thing, just wished I had gotten the stow n go one instead as much as I haul stuff all the time

Good But Bad. — An ok car, better than any GM or Ford or GM minivan in appearance and engines, but a lot worse that any Japanese minivan in any other area. Performance is lame, engine has good torque for towing, but bad pedal feel and incredibly soft handling make it gross to drive. Quite inside, but cold vinyl and unsupportive yet comfy seats make it a pain to drive. The styling is one of a million, but if you like jelly beans, it's for you. It's cheap till something stupid breaks,but fixes are expensive yet often in stock. Not fun to drive. A great long term driver, but around town it sucks. Great for hauling kids or lumber, and cheaper than a SUV. Buy if it's in you budget, but consider a Toyota, Kia, Honda, or Nissan first.

Pretty And Roomy — An awesome kid hauler. We got the package with the cool wheels and trim and automatic sliding doors on both sides. We have used this van for all types of trips and duties and it just keeps going.

Pros

Great family car, could shove everything I needed in it and would still have room.
Great  on the highway, gas mileage was good. not very loud on the inside and had comfortable seats and room for everyone and everything.

Cons

Really bad on gas, especially near the end of my ownership. 40 bucks wouldn't go very far, in the city.

Good Family Car For Vacations — It got good gas mileage on the highway, but in the city it sucked. I would have to put gas in it every couple of days if I wasn't filling it up. But the cargo and passenger space was awesome, there was enough room for everything a family of five could through at it.

Good Running Van — I am the second owner of this Dodge Grand Caravan, I had it since 03, I bought it with approximately 60K miles on it, the mileage is highway miles as I used back and forth to work every day. The van is not perfect, but it is very solid and reliable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

People don't give Dodge and Chrysler Corp its due so good buys abound in the used market.  This is a nice looking van - better than any of the others foreign or domestic in my opinion for its model year.  Chrysler corp has been styling leader  for van and pick ups since the mid 1990's.  All the other companies try to make their models look like the Dodges without admitting that's what they are doing.  Mid 20 on fuel mileage on a trip, very comfortable front seats, adequate power from the smaller 3.3 v-6, nice ride, and user friendly appointments.  Mine is the base - sport model, which I like because there is less stuff to break, but at 132,000 miles, everything works - all the power stuff, the air conditioning - everything!

Cons

I get accused of driving a "soccer mom" car.  I don't care.  I love it.  My kids are grown and gone, but I like this thing because of all the room and all the things it can be used for.

Nice, Practical, Reliable, Comfortable, Economical Vehicle. — I like it. I'm a Chrysler Corp/Mopar fan. Treat them right, and they will run forever. Check belts and hoses regularly, change the oil at least every 4000 miles, if something small is wrong, fix it before it turns into something big. Look around for a good used rig; you'll probably get a great deal because people don't appreciate what good cars and trucks Chrysler Corp has been making the past 15 to 20 years so they can be had cheaply. Don't buy one that hasn't been taken care of and fixed properly, and then complain because it's "junk". Be critical and careful going in, find one that's been care for and appreciated by the previous owner, and it will serve you well.
