Very Nice Family Car, Easy To Get In And Out Of And Lots Of Cargo Space — Very nice vehicle, family friendly and easy to drive. Lots of nice features and lots of cargo space. Fuel capacity is nice and gets good mileage for it's size. Easy to drive in snow however did struggle a bit in heavy snow

Pros

#1 Functionality and value for the money. Use for my business easier to maintain and operate than a pick-up truck.  The paint finish on my '06 has held up and cleans-up very well over any of the previous years I've owned.

Cons

Better gas mileage than a truck but not great (16-18, 21-22). Rotors warping, front end alignment issues body rust lower doors, rear hatch and hood edges seem to be a recurring issue for all the years I have owned 89, 97(T&C fam), 98, 2006

I Like It Very Much For What I Need It For — I've owned a number of Caravans and one T&C. The '97 T&C 3.8L was a maintenance nightmare. The Grand Caravan's (3.0, 3.3) performed and maintained much better than T&C. The 2006 has been my favorite with the stow-n-go seating providing full size 4x8 open space funcionality for my business needs. I keep my vehicles in tip top shape with regular fluid changes, fuel system cleaning, and 80,000 mile tune-up. Just had second tune-up at 160,000 still runs like new. Gas mileage has been a staple since I bought at 16-18, 21-22. I will continue to purchase Grand Caravans for my business needs.

Great Van — It had a DVD and it was a very reliable car. It protected me in a head on crash.

Very Comfortable, And Quiet. — Awesome family car. Power liftgate and auto doors very nice for loading/unloading Sliding doors makes entry/exit easy in tight parking situations. Stow and go seating makes the interior very versatile. Fuel economy does quite well for a vehicle of this cargo capacity.

Great Family Vehicle — Reliable and roomy vehicle for long rides. handles well even trailering but not in the corners (it is a van) withiin 5 years things are starting to go wrong. Door locks not working and cd doesn't work. Reasonable gas mileage for the cargo/towing capacity.

It's What It Seems To Be — It's a minivan. It's solid, you can put a lot of kids and cargo in it, the seats fold down. After 2 years and 25K, we haven't had to repair anything. In real life, driving fast, we get 22 MPG highway and 18 city, which is better than I expected.

Long Trips With Large Family Can Not Be Beat. — I have always loved the room. I used the van to build-out my basement and deck. It is the only vehicle I know of that can haul 4'x8' drywall without it getting wet. handles smoothly. Gas mileage for moving 7 people is great.

They Need To Get This Vehicle Up To Spec With Other Manufactures Quality. — I love the stow n go seats, the way it handles. I have the 3.8L. Way too many mechanical problems for an auto with only 60K miles. Brake wear is fast on this....bad design. Also, the moldings on the inside are delicate. The hood is rusting through.
