2003 Dodge Caravan

The 2003 Dodge Caravan said goodbye to some of the 2002 trims and hello to an old friend.  The eC and eL trims only lasted a year, probably because no one knew what they stood for.  In the regular models, the Sport is out, but back is the Caravan C/V, which last made an appearance in 1995.  The Sport trim is still available in the Grand Caravans.  Engine options remain 2.4, 4-cylinder in the regular models, and 3.3 or 3.8 V6 in the Grand Caravans.  Fuel economy averages 19/25.

New options in the 2003 Caravan are electroncially adjustable brake and gas pedals and an optional power sunroof on the ES.  The AutoStick auto/manual transmission is no longer available as of 2003.  All cars are front-wheel drive, although AWD is available in some Grand Caravan trims.

Even in the face of growing competition, Chrysler is still the big winner in the minivan market, selling over 350,000 this year, mostly thanks to its roominess, quiet ride, and affordable price.  The biggest problem to look out for remains multiple repairs and transmission troubles.
