Reviews For Dodge Caravan
From dependability to comfort the Dodge Caravan is a excellent choice.
I simply love my Dodge Caravan. It has lots of room which would be awesome if you have a large family. It is very reliable everyday. When I start it up in morning it starts 1st time, the front seats are very comfortable and cozy. I have a bad back but when I am driving my Caravan I feel like I am sitting in my chair at home. It gets good gas mileage for a 6 cylinder and has the power to make it up the mountains here in western Washington with ease. The Caravan comes with 2 sliding doors which make it very handy when you are running errands,

Good on gas. Up to date with oil changes. Year round tires. Plenty of cargo space. 6 CD changer dvd player. 6 cup holders seats 7. Missing the passenger side visor. The sliding doors do get stuck sometimes. It needs a new antenna. It has traveled almost all of western mass. Two hundred thousand something miles on it. New break lines wipers radiator. It has a clean title. No accidents. Kid friendly some wear and tear as a everyday driver. Great heat and ac.
The ability to let all of the seats down besides the two in front.
I think that the van drives really well a lot better than some other cars that I have had in the past. It is really comfortable especially for big families with the ability to let down the seats. It is definitely a reliable car it got me and my brothers to and from school, soccer practice, dance practices etc.. She has never given me any issue besides needing an oil change and brakes repair. I have had it for 3 years now with little to no problems.
Dependable dodge caravan. Quality you can count on.
This dodge caravan has been very dependable. . I count on it and is used to transport two physically disabled parents to the grocery store and to church several times a week. They are also transported to physical therapists several times a week. They are transported to the airport every several months which is sixty miles round trip out to Dallas love field. There is plenty of room for both walkers and still an extra open seat for an extra person.
I have kids in college, so I need a car that will get them back and forth from school each year.
It's a minivan and it's 13 years old. In general it's been reliable, but it's reached a point in its life where some of the nicelties are breaking down (auto door lock, etc). If I had my druthers, I'd have a different car, but we've got two kids in college so the van will be needed for at least four more years. I give it about a 50/50 chance of it making it that long, which is actually a positive thing, if you consider how old it is.
Dodge caravan, great to drive yet easy on the pocketbook!
The van gets great gas mileage, is easy to handle, and will last as long as it is properly taken care of. It is great for transporting family on either short or long trips. With a built -in DVD player, it helps keep the kids occupied while on long trips. The only issue that I have run into is to replace the alternator and transmission. Other than that, I haven't had any problems with the caravan.
Even though parts seem to go bad frequently, the price to fix it is decent.
This vehicle has some problems, but for the most part is a wonderful, reliable car. The engine light comes on for the same problems all the time. The oil pressure sensor is going bad, but does not affect the way it drives. The power steering pumps seem to go out on vans pretty frequently. However the parts do not seem to be outrageously priced, so it will not cost an arm and a leg to fix it.
It's a good solid car, but not very good on gas at about 15 mpg.
It's comfortable and works well for the most part; it's old, so the automatic key doesn't work, and it needs repairs periodically. It's got a lot of zip so you can accelerate quickly. It's got a small turning radius, which is good. One odd thing is that when you turn the steering wheel it blocks view of the headlight signal so you can't always see whether the lights are on bright or dim.
Its suitable for transportation needs, as it works and has more space than a sedan
We bought it used, so some issues might not apply. The cigarette lighter will not support much use (for a vacuum for example). The ac doesn't work as well as it could and can cut in/out briefly (decreases performance despite being on the highest setting). Its wobbly and noisy when going over bumps also. But it drives ok and has more space than a sedan, so it suits basic needs!
It gets me to point A to B and holds are whole family in one vehicle.
Too small for my family. The first row seats only 2. I like it to be 2 separate seats. It is all together. If the seat is together I feel it should seat 3 not 2. Back seats 3 but the middle has lap belt. The middle should have full shoulder/belt. Has no truck space. Not enough room to put shopping bags in back. If you put bags on side no room for anyone to get in and out.
