I do not have a lot of good things to say about the Dodge Caravan. I will say I will never own another one as long as I live.
We brought this 2002 Dodge Caravan gently used back in 2005.
It only had 33, 000 miles on it and we were able to get it for $9000.
All seemed fine when we test drove it but we still took out the extended warranty for it.
Thank Goodness we did!
We have had to repair or replace the following:
Antifreeze reservoir because there was a crack in it causing to leak antifreeze
Rack and Pinion
Power window on the driver's side was stuck and would not go down. Had to replace a part for that
Instrument panel - the speedometer totally stopped working while driving down the highway!
Power lock on the driver's side --- one day I could not unlock the driver's side door from the inside or out
Sway bar links and bushings
And the latest and why my Dodge Caravan is at the shop right now, the brake drums went bad and need to be totally replaced!
My Caravan only has 72, 000 miles on it right now. You would not think it should be having this many problems already but it is.
Most of the problems the warranty has covered, but unfortunately the Warranty expires May 28th, 2008!
I am very worried to be driving around without a warranty on this van.
My husband and I have been seriously talking about getting a different van because we do not trust this van anymore.
One thing is for sure we will NOT be looking at a Dodge minivan no matter how good the deal is!
We are finished with Dodge!
The only reason I scored it a 2 is because it has not left me stranded YET!
