    Dodge Caravan Turbo. The Only Minivan I Will Ever Own — period. it kicks ass. bought it for like 500 bucks? no reverse. but DAMN! that thing could move. it was definitely boosting higher than the stock 4lb, for sure. floor it on the highway and it would torque steer into the next lane if you didnt watch it. it was the bomb without any question. and a 13 something second minivan! unfortunately it split the head gasket b/n cyl. 2 and 3, and i didnt have the time to take care of the situation at the time so i sold it. but i would TOTALLY buy another one in a heartbeat! by far the coolest sleeper i have ever owned

    Pros: more power than a minivan should have; the priceless looks you get when your bov on your MINIVAN goes off nxt to somebody

    Cons: umm...its a minivan?; dont even think about pedal to the floor from a stop. that = a tire bbq in 1st and 2nd

    Cheap, Common, Functional Vehicle Too Little Attention To Servicability — Had the '89 for a couple of years and it served me well. Loved getting 26mpg! Body ran out and found a near identical 1990 with a great body but bad engine. After a couple of years I finally got to the project - the engine still ran great just before switching. Rebuilt everything, switching front axle beam, new brake lines, new gas lines, some new suspension and brake parts - But the engine electrical harness was in terrible shape, and I could not start the engine. When I went to the Chrystler dealership for information on wiring, I was told they would be happy to diagnose it for me. I don't run a cheap car so I can pay for expensive car services! So Chrystler definitely gets a "hate it!" rating from me. Engineering was basic (good) and sometimes quirky (bad). They could do much more to make it repair friendly.

    Pros: most parts easy to find, abundant cargo room (once you pull seats and plastic panels) for the vehicle footprint, good mileage.

    Cons: Not especially repair friendly, electrical is complicated without being sophisticated. My plea: when the non-essential systems break, the basic systems should still work. Where is that basic electrical diagram?

    She May Be A Piece, But I Love Her So. — Nicest thing about her is the fact that she can truck though almost any weather condition. 3 feet of water on a flooded roadway? No problem. Ferris' unplowed parking lot? A warm up.

    Pros: Large backseat.
    V6 engine.

    Cons: ...It's a van.

    It Gets Me Where I Need To Go Locally — i am in the military and it hauls myself and my crew around comfortably. The paint is peeling off and it is rusted the hood but it is a point a to point b vehicle and it is a 1989. I paid 200 dollars for it.
