1996 Dodge Caravan 3 Dr SE Passenger VanReview

96 Caravan — very usefull vehicle. I bring it places where some rear-wheel drive pickups can't go. That's what's nice about having front-wheel drive; good traction. It also has good ground clearance for a minivan, and good torque when in first. It also fits 4 bikes with no prblemo

Pros: Very practical vehicle

Cons: transmission slips around corners, but that's expected with 160k miles

My Van — I love the fact that i can carry 7 people in my van, and it gets great gas milage. Not the strongest motor, only a 4 banger but its better than the V6 on gas. Hoping it passes etest, its not that old after all. My van is in need of a good cleaning, know anyone?

Pros: Milage

Cons: cant think of any

All In All It Served Me And My Family Well — I bough this car from a friend who is a dealer . It was his demo. Its gone but not forgotten. the most expensive repair was the air conditioner evaporator . The dash had to be removed. Fan belt tensioner three times. Battery 3 times. Brakes 3 times , The trans leak was a recall and was free. something to do with the incompatibility of the trans oil and a certain seal that kept the oil in the transmission. The temperature control module failed and we had no air conditioning for a short time. And the radio SUCKED!! kept fading in and out so I replaced it with a blaupunkt . If you have a growing family I would recommend buying one. Sold it for 600 dollars in 06

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This was our family car while the kids were growing up. Mom was the primary driver

Cons: Repairs as it got older were many and expensive
