2005 Dodge Grand Caravan Review
The car seat are so comfortable ride in when you are driving. It is fun to drive and very maneuverable through traffic. I have been pleased with the versatility of the van to use for transporting firewood and construction materials.

Van — Good van, has all the bells and whistles. Kids love the DVD entertainments system. Has tons of space to haul people and items from the hardware store or furniture store. Looks really good all cleaned up also. Stow-n-Go is great!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great family van with TONS of space

Cons: Gas mileage could be better in town.

Practical Family Van Or Work Vehicle — I've had the car for 18 months and other than oil changes, brakes and tires, I haven't done a lot of extra maintenance. May need some major work ay 137k miles, but that's to be expected. Stow & go is very helpful, and we added a power converter, after-market head unit, back-up camera and an Xbox so it's definitely entertaining.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very spacious, not very expensive for a used car.

Cons: Fuel economy could be better.

Pretty Good Until You Are Done With It... — Can't resell this thing for anything near what they are actually worth. Car dealers scoff and laugh when you ask for real pricing on this vehicle. Book sale value is up to 7000 for it, but still says my trade in is only 3k. Otherwise see above for pro/con list...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great family hauler, decent gas mileage, low maintenance costs, built in 5 pt. harnesses in middle row bench seat (for kids, to replace boosters)

Cons: REALLY low resale value, even at low mileage.

Nice Family Car But Will Need Some Repairs — Great space and ride for a family. I love my van but it definitely has some quarks that I could live without. The windows in this car hate me. They won't stay working. The rear seats are difficult at times to get lined up and latched. There is enough space to get between the front seats and all the way to the back of the van without getting out which is nice when you have young children. Engine and transmission have held up extremely well.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of space, plenty of power, smooth quiet ride, great for families. Front seats are comfy for long drives and normal maintenance hasn't been very costly. We only paid for 4k for it so it wasn't expensive. 200k miles and still running mostly :)

Cons: The rear seats are a bit persnickety to get lined up and latched. We have had issues with drivers and passenger window motors. Replaced them a few times already and the windows still roll slowly and the motors keep dying out leading to nonworking windows. We have had quite a few trips to the repair shop including egr valve, power steering rack, and alternator.

Soccer Mom — I loved how comfortably the whole family and extended friends fit in it. It handles like a small car. Easy to park and hardly any blind spots. Loved that I never had to take seats out to haul stuff. Just tumble bumble right into floor.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It is wonderful to haul groups and multifunctional.

Cons: Not really cool.

Family Van — Its longevity was not as long as I had hoped and the brakes were replaced numerous times. My wife has absolutely loved it and has always thought that it was the perfect car for her. I thought the front seats were not comfortable.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: seats fold under floor

Cons: brakes repaired often, rust

Utility! — I love the transformation from cargo to family carrier. The van is nice looking and fun to drive. Long trips are nice. Cruises at 75 beautifully. It's quiet and has a great sound system. I would refer this van to a friend.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The stow and go seats are the best option on this van. The v-6 engine is reliable and powerful. The fluids are easily accessible for changing by the shade tree mechanic.

Cons: Door locks sometimes need "resetting". The automatic doors are a little slow. You can't put the van in drive while the doors are closing. I hate waiting for them to close.
