The 2006 Grand Caravan is a great car for any family with over two children. The basic seating configuration with two seats in the front, a two person bench seat in the middle, and a three person bench seat in the back gives families great flexibility. Snap-in infant seats can be very comfortably installed in the middle bench, and the back bench is very comfortable for older children in booster seats. Parents can also easily move through the vehicle if the need were to arise.
The air-conditioning system is very effective in cooling the entire car, and the rear section has its own controls and vents. The amount of storage in the body of the vehicle is also impressive. The underfloor compartments are huge, and they are easily accessible. The Grand Caravan also has significant space behind the back bench for luggage and other cargo.
Fuel efficiency is moderately good, in the 20 mpg range for highway. This car is highly recommended for families especially those who like to take road trips. The basic model is not luxurious, but it is comfortable, flexible, and secure - the most important features a family car needs.
