    I Love My Caravan! — I like the roominess of the van and of course, the stow-n-go seats. The back seats aren't all that comfortable, but I seldom ride back there. I like being up higher off the road. The wide windshield is really great.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The stow-n-go seats are AMAZING...we have children who live in 4 different states and we are always hauling furniture etc.

    Cons: The electric locks only work if you take the battery cables off and put them back on. Then the locks work from a few hours to a few days.

    A Very Special Sxt Edition. Well Worth The Look, Value And Price. — You are looking at a great family vehicle -- loaded with the special edition accessories. DVD System which allows you to plug in external sources (wii, xbox) which is great for long rides. The interior is in awesome condition - professionally detailed inside and out. The carpet and leather heated seats look great. The Kelly Blue Book price for this vehicle with all the options included for excellent condition is set at $8,615. I am listing this vehicle for sale at $8200 discounting for paint damage to the left rear bumper (see photo). This van is great and has been very helpful for our growing family (we have one on the way!) We do hope that it will bless another family as well. The Special Edition SXT package - allowed a special option of paint which this van has. The special Pearl Coat Atlantic Blue. The color is gorgeous and drew my wife to it right away when we purchased it. In the interior the Special Edition package included a carbon fiber look around the front middle dashboard where there is located the CD player, duel temperature climate control and DVD systems. Other added accessories that we've added: Front bug shield and both front window air deflectors. These add a little touch of sport.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This is the best reliable family transportation.   It has is time proven.  It has served my family well.

    Cons: This has been a perfect vehicle - with no mechanical defaults.  The right rear bumper does have a small paint defect.

    I Don't Care-avan — It's a minivan. Need I say more. Someday I hope to own something a little less practical. It's a V6 so ...at least it has a little pick-up and go. It's a nice silver colour. Do I sound excited yet? No. Right you are.

    Pros: Lot's of room.

    Cons: Lot's of room ...not so much vroom.

    My Dodge Caravan — This may not be a rare or gorgeous vehicle to some, but its made for me. It has an automatic ramp for easy access and automatic sliding door. The rear lowers on hydrolic air pillows. It has custom side facias. Its a deep sea blue with slight gleaming specals. All creature comforts.

    Pros: Looks like a soccermom dream, works like an exotic sports car.   

    Cons: Appearances may decrease to wow factor, not much hp.

    Good Car, But... — We loan this car for our business, we removed all the rear seat to clear the space, so we can transport stuff. This car is powered by a V6 3.3L engine, developping around 180HP at the crank spend a littlebit more fuel than the toyota. The car is heavy, but with the seat removed it seems much lighter. So far we don't have any problem with the motor, or other mechanical things. But we had : Air bag issue, cooling fan issue, computer lock door issue, which is covered by the warranty, more or less important.. The handling is great for a van, never raced it though, there's no rpm counter in dash. scored a 3/5

    Pros: HP output from the engine, interior space, interior confort

    Cons: need reliability check
