2001 Dodge Caravan Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Caravan
I need a more modern vehicle!
The car is too old for me. The doors squeal really loud when you open them, which is embarrassing when I'm in a parking lot. The brakes can't stop quickly, so I have to start pressing on them well before I want to make a complete stop or slow down for turn. The interior is falling apart (the ceiling fabric is coming undone) and the outside is rusty. The inside also only has a cassette player, so I can't hook up my phone to listen to music. The air is also broken, it's always blowing regardless if I have it off or not. The lights headlights need cleaned, the lighting is too dim. One thing I do like about this car, however, is how high up it is. I do like to drive at a higher height.
It's still useful in spite of the few problems that it has.
Our car is compact but it's still reliable. We only use it to run errands, as we cannot use it to go too far, but we are still very grateful for it. It doesn't have air conditioner, so these last months have been very hard on us, as it has been really hot. The previous owners had a car accident so the window on the driver's seat does not go down, and one of the passenger's door gets stuck and does not open from the inside. It's a great car and if we had the monetary funds we would fix the problems and keep it.
Great van 2001 Dodge caravan sport se.
This is a great family vehicle. I have been driving it for 13 yrs. and the engine is still going strong. Normal maintenance, oil changes etc. Have had to replace the radiator, hoses, ac maintenance. At the 10yr mark is when the window regulators snapped. Motor mounts, liftgate shocks, and shocks and struts also needed to be changed around the 10yr mark. Otherwise no issues. Great van.
2001 Dodge caravan well maintained vehicle.
2001 Dodge caravan dual sliding doors, bench seats driver and passenger side temperature control temp control in the back, needs a radiator and it is rusty but other than that it runs and starts every time have driven everywhere we go, from round trip of 190 miles with no issues before the hole in the radiator just keep putting water in it until we can get a radiator.
Lucky to be part of the family.
Lucky, was the first vehicle that my hubby and I bought as a married couple. We got her because our family including our foster daughter, my only child my son, Michael and my mom and her spouse. She's been a great van and is part of our family. We drove to NC to see motley crue, to Nashville and back more than once. With our busy lives, she's on the road a lot.
The most important thing to know about my Caravan is that it is very reliable.
I have owned my van for 16 years. In that time it has suffered two broken serpentine belts with no other breakdowns. It is roomy, adequately powerful, and quiet. My only complaint is that it does not get as good of fuel economy as I would like and the tires seem to wear out faster than they should. All in all, it has been the best vehicle I have ever owned.
Dodge caravan is great!! Very recommended.
I have had to do little maintenance to the vehicle. It has on star capability as well as Sirius am. The seats are heated and the vehicle also has a DVD player installed. Great if u have children or carpool. The only issue is that I feel like I am driving a school bus and sometimes the left lights in the dashboard is too bright and distracting.
Husband paralyzed from chest down.
It's a handicap van, my husband drives it with his wheelchair in the drivers place. Its breaking down on us and have no money to replace or fix it. If it completely breaks down, then he will not have any way to get around. I am working stressful hours at work trying to get him a new one and we are far from it. Praying someone will help us.
In a short summary I have a pretty good 2001 Dodge caravan and it is blue.
My car drives fine after replacing water tank it was overheating but now it is great it is alright gas mileage about 20 miles to the gallon highway in about 18 and 10 I generally spend about $45 to fill up the gas tank from empty the vehicle has about 179000 miles on it no engine problems no brake problems no steering problems no leaks.
2001 Dodge Caravan-great vehicle wish I could buy it new again.
This vehicle has been very reliable. It has 240, 000+ miles on it & we recently put a power steering unit on it, but other than minor maintenance very few repairs. It is comfortable to drive for longer trips & has plenty of room for baggage & craft show items. It does use a fair amount of gas though, approx. 18. 5 mpg.
