Great deal for $2499. Only one owner, 152k miles, engine and transmission is smooth. Love the stow-away seats and love that the sliding door windows roll down

Nice Family Car With Lots Of Room And Great For Hauling Stuff — Love the Stow'n'Go! But I believe that Chrysler could do a lot better both quality and price wise. Parts are getting cheaper - electronic technology advancement especially, also cheap plastic parts replace metal parts - while prices keep skyrocketing for no particular improvement.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Love the Stow'n'Go seats. Great for family driving and long trips

Cons: 3.8 L engine mileage sucks - around 14 mpg in city and 20-22 mpg on highway. Brakes wear out incredibly fast. Problems with sliding side doors. Seats do not last long and wear out in a few years.

Great Family Van! — Great family van, a lot of seating. Love the stow and go when all seats are stowed the whole back is available for cargo. Van is high up with no running boards makes it hard for short people and small children to climb in. Stereo has a/v plug-in which is great for connecting phones to listen to music or audiobooks via van speakers. Nice smooth quiet ride.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Plenty of seating.  Love the stow and go seating!  Great A/C.

Cons: Terrible blind spots had to add extra small mirrors to see better on sides. Seat stowing area leaks.  Van is high up with no running boards makes it hard for short people and small children to climb in.

Great Vehicle For A Family. — We just bought this vehicle, so we need more time before we can really give it a good review. :-) But so are, we like the way it rides (very smooth), it's quiet, the kids like the DVD system, i LOVE the automatic doors.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: We just bought this vehicle, and it is in really great shape, so we love it and it looks nice too.

Cons: I would have like to have a Navigation System and radio volume controls in the steering wheel, but those aren't necessities.

Mark says:
just purchased this vehicle today, and I am pleasantly surprised. I t handles well, and is SPACIOUS! The fold down Stow-N-Go seats are great. Lots of room to load or just lay your head while camping. Fuel mileage is OK - around 20 mpg. I will know more as I use the vehicle more regularly.

Power Ranked 2006 Ford Focus ZX4 SE worse.
"2 more cylinders! The Grand Caravan is a V-6, while the Focus was an online 4. The Focus is easier to work on from the top, not so much from underneath."
Handling Ranked 2006 Ford Focus ZX4 SE better.
"The Focus is just a smaller, lighter vehicle. Very nimble in turns, and the engine was quite powerful for its size."
