Highly Dependable Vehicle

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

Have never had any major problems. For a van, it gets better gas mileage than my Pontiac G5. It always starts no matter what the weather. I enjoy the fact that I can open the side doors remotely. Makes it easy to load. My husband and I have traveled with a Caravan for many years and have found them to be totally reliable. We have had 4 different ones. I like the room it has to take along even the kitchen sink! It also allows me to fold down the seats to pick up things, like plywood, that won't fit in a car or SUV. My van has CD as well as a cassette player which takes in all of my music. Sound is great. I have ABS brakes which I hate. I prefer to do my own braking, but I am sure most other people would welcome them. I have had only one area of rust, which I repaired because I want to keep it.

Versatile, family friendly, and useful for many types of cargo.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

My van has over 200,000 miles on it. The front and middle seats are very comfortable. The back seat has no leg room to speak of. We have had this vehicle over 10 years and in the last few years we have had to replace a power window motor, radiator, water pump, and alternator. We generally try to maintain our vehicles with regular oil changes and basic maintenance. The interior has worn well, though just this year the headliner has started to come loose at the windshield. I have noticed a couple of very small areas where it looks like rust is starting to set in. We've used this van for a lot of moving for family and hauling various items. Overall, I have been pleased with the value for my money. Gas mileage is about 17-20 mpg

I love my Caravan, or my mommy mobile, as my children call it!

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

I love the Dodge Caravans. I have owned at least 3 by now. It has enough room to carry an entire soccer team or if you went shopping it can carry more bags than you can purchase. The only problems I have consistently seen is the rust on the passenger door and it begins to peel up and break off. A little white duct tape always can help with that. It has a fold down second row of seats as well as the back row folds down to provide much needed open area for carrying bigger items. It also has a long life... these caravans all last to almost 200,000 miles. Some minor maintenance regularly and your good to go.

- Corinne C

Overall I would recommend one who likes a spacious car to try a dodge caravan.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

The pros to having a Dodge Caravan are; the spacious room inside for whatever you may need to haul or anything such as that, I love how smooth it rides going down the road, and I love my stow and go seats. The cons about my Dodge Caravan are; it has very high mileage so the transmission slips every once in a while, The speakers for the radio are not very loud at all even when the radio is turned up the whole way, It is somewhat a gas hog, and The lighting to the gauges on the dash are very dim.

Vehicle of Perseverance and Adaptation

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

The vehicle is very reliable when it comes to having to depend on its multiple features that include children. It's great for road trips as the seats can be moved to accommodate. When something goes wrong, it's usually only easy fixes. There may have been a few times that it almost fell apart on the road or had an issue with the weather changes, but that only started after ten years of having it, and even then the vehicle held out until it was fixed.

Regular maintenance has kept it running well for 17 years.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

It has served my needs very well over the years. It has had regular maintenance. Batteries and tires were replaced several times. Keeping up with fluids I am sure has helped keep it running well. It has handled well in all weather situations. It was outfitted for a wheelchair lift in the back. I did put heavier shocks in the rear. By treating the van with care has made it reliable. This is the second Dodge Caravan and I like it .

It saves lots of money on gas. It takes 20 to 50 bucks to fill up.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

I've had my van sense the day it came out. I love my van really reliable, plenty of room to grow. If it was running well I would keep it forever. I also moved things in it too just take the seats out and they are very easy to put back in, a little heavy but easy. The only bad thing is the rust is all around the sides and my side door does not open. Maybe make the windows in the back roll down. All and all love my van.

2006 Dodge Caravan Review

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

I personally love my 2006 dodge caravan. It holds 7 people, which is great for a large family, doesn't guzzle gas, and is very reliable. This vehicle has endured a tornado, a deer running into its side, and wear and tear from 4 children. The only issue with our vehicle is an ac problem, which is easily fixable. It also is a bit harder to drive due to its large size and blind spots

- Ashley H

I love the vehicle everything in it is electric it even has a DVD player.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

I love this van I bought it used but it has never left me stranded handles well in the snow and other weather conditions we use it for collecting scrap so it has paid me back for the purchase as well as any money I had to put into her if given the chance I would buy another one after this one's time comes I cannot say enough good things about my dodge caravan.

- Becky B

Like the slider doors on both sides, very handy with several kids!

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

Has been dependable, have had the vehicle awhile. Trouble with a leaky radiator and a small oil leak which is difficult to pinpoint where it's coming from. Also having a problem with the volume dial. The temperature speed button only works on high. The vehicle has done very well with as long as I have had it.

- Becky S

A well managed safe and spacious family van

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

The only problem I have had with this vehicle is my ignition locking up and I had to get it replaced. Other than that it runs good on gas, there is plenty of room and it's comfortable for my family. I feel safe in this vehicle mostly because of the airbag system and all of the seat belts work successfully.

- Haley D

Caravan minivan the timex of dodge.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

My caravan is still going strong at 170,000 miles. No major problems and routine replacements fluids, brakes, lights filters. It truly has been a great vehicle. It continues to run almost as smooth as it did 12 years ago. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. I plan to drive mine as long as it lives.

- Lisa O

A reliable vehicle for the whole family.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

Very reliable and comfortable for the whole family. Plenty of room and head room. Lots of features. Repairs are simple. Maintenance is easy. Have 250k miles on it and still runs like a champ. Have had minor electrical system issues but were easily resolved. Plenty of legroom and cargo space.

- Rebecca U

Very reliable vehicle! Haven't had a problem yet!

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

It has always been a very reliable vehicle. My children all fit comfortably. I always make sure to keep up maintenance on it and I have never had a single problem with my van. If I had to get something new I would definitely consider getting the same vehicle, just a newer model.

- Rachel Z

Dodge Caravan review. I hope this helps someone.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

I got this van used with over 100,000 miles on it. I love it, but there have been transmission problems off and on for the past few years. There has also been problems with the computer that controls the tire pressure gauge. It's more annoying than anything.

- Jordan D

Love my dodge caravan! It is perfect for my dog too as he goes to work with me.

2006 Dodge Caravan SE

I love my van! It is old but still runs great. Over the years I have spent minimal upkeep. I've spent a few thousand on it but a new car would have been thousands more. I will by a dodge caravan again. It's almost 14 years old so it will be in a year or two.

- Tamara H
