2006 Dodge Caravan Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Caravan
Bad quality transmission (on older models) but other great features!
Our Dodge caravan is an older model and fairly simple. Cons would be that, like most Dodge older models, it needed a new transmission before it hit 160, 000. Pros would be that all of the back seats disappear into the floor. . . No more taking out seats! Say hello to extra space! So convenient for traveling. The double power sliding doors are another great feature for those who often have full hands (like parents!). It gets an average of 19 mpg and we love the head and leg room. Oh, and the car seats not only buckle in, but latch in with the metal hooks, making them twice as secure.
Reliable and low cost of maintenance.
I have had good results from my caravan. The only problem has been that I ran over a deer and one feral hog. Both destroyed the front end of the vehicle. I have spent very little on it except to go through several alternators. I discovered that they are Japanese made and cannot be rebuilt as mos. alternators can at a much smaller cost. Other than that it has been a good vehicle and I intend to keep it for another year at least. I keep the oil changed regularly and add a quart of Lucas oil on each change. We have taken several enjoyable vacations in it.
Good value for travel, has good gas mileage, comfort and room.
Have not had any issues. Performance is what I expect of a van. Have been on many road trips and find that the driver's seat is comfortable. Third row seats need work as they do not offer much comfort for adults but are great for kids. Have a/c for all seating rows wish that controls were located in the seating rows instead of the front and center areas of van. Stow and go not as easy as it seems, but is nice in that you do not remove seats. Extra storage under floor when seats are used and not stowed. . Large knobs for ease of tuning a/c and radio.
My HHR is fun and comfortable great car.
My HHR is small but room enough has great pickup turns corners great can park this car anywhere lots of room in back plus back seats fold for more room speakers are awesome plugs for your phone in front and in back steering wheel had option to move for different heights seats are heated an add plus for the winter months auto light are a plus. Drawback is the frame of the car front window and side window you really got to pay attention when looking out the window windows are small and the frame can get make your view hard to see things.
I love my caravan. Interesting detail: it can carry 7 passengers.
I am very pleased with my Dodge caravan. It is the fourth caravan that I have owned. I like the ease of entering and getting out of the caravan. My wife is arthritic and crippled and the caravan is necessary to carry her and walkers to the doctors and therapy centers. The large rear cargo area with the overhead gate is very handy in loading and unloading equipment and supplies. All in all, I am very happy with my Dodge caravan. If I buy another automobile it will be a Dodge caravan.
Dodge Grand Caravan that a stay at home mother of two kiddos and one on the way.
I love this van it works great! It gets me around as far as taking my child to school, running errands, taking my child to his father's house a half hour away and back! The only problem I have encountered is the compressor has gone out on me so sometimes it blows sometimes it does not! I recently had it pass an emissions test which is great! But then my brakes started going out so I'll need to get those fixed asap! Other than the few minor maintenance details I love it!
My spacious 2006 Dodge Caravan XLT.
My Dodge Caravan is very comfortable and reliable. It does have issues with the automatic passenger doors, which is very expensive to keep replacing. The gas mileage is not bad for long trips, but is not good for in town. I do love the space I have to fit my family of 5, my van has seating for 7, with the 5 rear seats all having a stow and go capabilities perfect for moving medium to large items. I very much recommend my vehicle and happy with my purchase.
Dodge caravans not a bad minivan.
This is the second caravan I have owned. The last one was a 1998 Grand Caravan and the grand is for the extra cargo space I lost, lol. So far no major problems with my newer 2006 caravan, and the last one I owned and traded towards the one I have now had 300, 000 miles on the original engine and transmission. The engine was starting to feel a little tired and I was starting to lose miles per gallon but all things considered I told that is not too shabby.
2006 Dodge grand caravan. Gas eater.
We bought the vehicle from a used car dealership about 2 years ago and it started off with a crack in the oil pan, it uses way to much on gas we go through 1/2 tank in just a day just in town. The brakes and rotors and oil are constantly needing to be changed which is ridiculous because we do not use the vehicle that much. But the number one problem would be the horrible gas mileage we put at least 60-80 dollars a week into the tank.
Spare tire storage, good on gas, lots of room for storage and people.
My 2006 Dodge caravan is great for big families and space, it is comfortable for long rides, and family outings. Some of Its features include: radio, CD player, AUX cord, seat mobility, sunglasses storage, cup holders, armrests, and more. There are 8 seats and room in the back for luggage, it has spare tire storage, floorboard storage, and storage under the passenger seat. I highly recommend this vehicle for big families!
