Cheap And Affordable — This van has good performance, it goes from 0-60 in 6.0 seconds and it does have an amount of $40 for gas and $20 for maintenance. This would be the best family van because it is cheap and runs awesome because my van has 360,000 miles on it and is still running good. The condition of my van outside and inside is okay but outside is bad.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good family van

Cons: just dont salvage title it

Love It, But Would Like A Little More Quality To Have Gone Into It. — Love the space and height of the van, LOVE the built in car seats. I can get my kids in and out easily, and see them easy when driving. Has some problems now, that are fixable, nothing horribly major. nice height off road for driving, can see well, only one small blind spot. switches seem to be cheap since several are broken or almsot broken.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: height, safety

Cons: gas milage, cheap interior parts.

98 Grand Caravan Sport — Yeah, go ahead and laugh but I love this van. It's roomy, powerful and fully loaded with power everything and a killer Infinity sound system. I drove it to Colorado and back this summer without a lick of trouble and got 25 mpg.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roomy, great looking (for a minivan), powerful, decent gas mileage

Cons: Other than the fact that it's over a decade old and has it's share of wear and tear, none

Dodge Grand Caravan — Good Acceleration, bad braking and the handling is a bit weak. Good Quality, though the engine needed to be overhauling Looks like an old minivan. Decent gas mileage, though it leaks oil and other fluids. Not really fun to drive.

Pros: It is big.

Cons: It is a minivan...

7th Car — We have had such good luck with our '97 Grand Caravan that when we saw this one, also red, but with gold striping (ugh!) we bought it for me and Scott uses the '97 as his work van now.

Pros: Same great design!

Cons: None so far.

It's Been Good! — The Grand Caravan has the Mitsubishi 3 liter engine, which was my engine of choice. I like the high-revving capability of the 3.0. The only problems have occurred recently, at 99700 miles. 1. The air condition pulley keeps throwing off belts, and I've been told that this is because the pulley is out of alignment. Haven't had it fixed yet. 2. Air Bag idiot light keeps going on and off. 3. Oil pan has a Kelly plug because of an incompetent shadetree mechanic (myself) insisted on changing oil himself and rounded off the drain plug. Other than a failed battery, that has been all in the last 8 years of ownership! Once I work out the handful of bugs, I may just keep it.

Owner for 8 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: Very good gas mileage

Cons: It's a little big sometimes.

Roomy, Nice Ride, Nice To Drive — Has decent performance, it is a mini van so not going to win any races, the fuel economy isnt that great but its ok. has plenty of room, i hauled a washer and my wife and 2 kids still had plenty of room. styling isnt to bad ours has a decal on it so that makes it look a little better.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I like being able to fill it with E-85

Cons: mileage sucks but it does on most mini vans

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan LE FWD Review
fngny69 says:
Very rugged and comfortable minivan, but not as luxurious as Town and Country. Parts are cheap and easy to fix. Not much electronics which makes it very reliable. With good maintenance it could be driven for a long time. Smooth ride and very good hwy handling. As good as town and country
