After 10 years, some electrical issues, but engine works great.

I feel it is comfortable to sit in, enjoy the seat warmers, the dual ac/heat regulators and our manufactured television has been great for the kids to watch movies on long trips. Our vehicle is hitting 10 years old and we have had some electrical issues. A wire broke to open the left side automatic door, but it could still be manually opened. We had it repaired. The automatic hinge for the back hatch door had also broken from wear and was re-welded and broke again, but still can be manually opened and closed. It has never left me stranded and it gets regular engine upgrades, oil changes, tires changes and tune-ups.

Family friendly reliable minivan.

I love the stow away seats, this allows me to have plenty of room for hauling large items like a sheet of plywood, bikes and lots of boxes that saves me from renting a truck. Two features on this model I am not happy with is the middle windows do not go down for the people in the back to get air, and there are no air conditioning/heat vents so you have to rely on the front vents to cool or heat vehicle. Over all this is a very good vehicle for a family plenty of room and so far reliable, I have 120, 000 miles on it and still going.

The grand caravan is a live, work and play dream come true.

My grand caravan has the stow and go seat option which is great. I am a weekend musician and I can move a lot of equipment in it. I bought the van used and have had very little problems with it over the last 3 years. The automatic sliding doors are a bit hit or miss, but it is not a major concern. It is reliable, comfortable, and easy to drive for a fairly large vehicle. Gas mileage is acceptable. Great sounding stereo and very comfortable seats.

Dodge grand caravan: plenty of convenience, power, and ease of handling.

The Dodge grand caravan has been an excellent vehicle for someone who must drive frequently for work. The passenger area is roomy, though the third row seats are a little cramped. The stow and go seats are great when you need to haul cargo, and are easy to operate. The van handles well. I have driven in many different terrains from mountains to desert without any problems. The v-6 engine gives it plenty of power without using too much gas.

Dan H

Drives well, but eats through brakes.

My favorite thing about this vehicle is that it handles really well. It does not feel like driving a van. I also like the fold-flat third-row seating; I have helped friends move with this van when a truck wasn't available. It can carry a lot. Unfortunately maintenance can get really expensive. The brakes are too small for the amount of vehicle, so I have to get a whole new set of brakes about once a year, which is incredibly pricey.

Stephanie T

Spacious, comfortable, side and rear windows open which is great.

I love our van. It has been reliable, it is comfortable for the whole family. The seats fold into the floor which is great! I was able to fit a whole couch in my van! There is a place to charge phones or hand held games near the rear seats. That comes in handy for the kids, especially on long drives. There is plenty of room in the very back for bringing groceries home. The middle seats recline and the headrests are adjustable.

Jennifer J

I think other should know that my Dodge caravan is very dependable.

The Dodge caravan takes up and uses to much gas per week. Another issue would be the radio/time display, I'm not a fan of the design and the overall design scheme. The say goes for the heating/cooling system design scheme. There is not an option to totally disable the system, so there is always wind blowing a all times. Despite all this the Dodge caravan is a very comfortable car to both drive as well as be a passenger in.

Yasmin H

This van is a safe and comfortable vehicle. It performs really well and I feel very good about driving it.

We bought this vehicle from Garber Auto in Green Cove Springs, FL, and we use this dealership for maintenance, as well. We also bought my husband's 2018 from there. I love the features included in my van: heated seats, bluetooth enabled, satellite radio, etc. It also has the stow and go feature. The vehicle performs really well. I've driven many vans in my life, but I must say that this one is the best, by far.

Elizabeth E

My experience with my Dodge minivan.

I bought this vehicle used a couple of years ago. It had close to 180, 000 miles on it. Since then we've put about another 40, 000 miles on it ourselves. I have yet to have any problems with it. We maintain the oil changes on the regular as well as the air filter. Occasionally, we'll put fuel additives, but other then that, it has been maintenance free. It is been a smooth ride since we got it!

Enrique C

It had leather and heated seats both in the front and middle seats.

It has a lot of computer problems. It is in the shop for maintenance all the time. The tire pressure light and the check engine light is always on. It had to get an emissions exemption sticker when it got inspected this past time. I do not think that I would purchase this vehicle again even though I did like all the bells and whistles it had and it was very comfortable to drive.

Kathy K

It is extremely reliable and has flexibility for hauling people and/or stuff.

I love my vehicle because of the sight lines and the number of passengers I can transport. I also like it's flexibility for carrying payload. I also love the ability to open the side doors with a press of a button. The one thing I wish this minivan has is the electronic lift and close rear hatchback I am short and sometimes it is difficult to close the hatch.

Kristin B

It is white and has a bunch of brake dust on the rims.

My vehicle has a lot of miles and the radio does not work, the right handle on the van door is broken, it is never broken down while I was in it, but there were multiple times where it wouldn't start. It overheats regularly, but it picks up its a v6 it is very spacious, has three rows of seats and you can put them all down in cargo hulls beneath the floor.

Greg M

2008 Dodge grand caravan se. Family vehicle. Spacious seating.

It is a nice vehicle. Runs well, very comfortable and great for families space wise. However since hitting 80, 000 miles plus we have started having problems with brake lights, gas cap, transmission, and battery terminals. Unfortunately my research has shown that Dodge vehicles have common issues with ours in almost every make and model.

Rhonda S

Very Roomy and convenient. Keeps kids happy.

I love the automatic doors and chargers for electronics for the kids. It really makes having a van easier. very roomy and lots of trunk space. I like that the back has its own air controls as well.I do wish it were easier to remove/put seats back in if we take them out. also wish it had more compartments or seat pockets to hold things.

sara b

It has low miles on it well it did when I bought it but for a ten yr. old car.

I've replaces the transmission sensors, wheel bearings tie rod heater core. I've put a lot of money into it but its reliable and gets me places. It has a place for DVD player but hubby took it out and can't figure out how to put it back in. It just has under 78000 miles on it had real low miles when I bought it three years ago.

Debra P

It is comfortable to drive and easy to handle but has the power of a big truck.

My van is reliable. It is roomy with plenty of space for 7 people. It is comfortable for long car trips. Although it is a bigger vehicle it is easy to park and drives smoothly. It is l great snow and rain. There is plenty of storage space for all the kids sports gear and for groceries or anything else you want to bring home.

Elizabeth C

Very spacious, DVD player, CD player radio, table, lots of seats, smooth drive.

My car is very good. No problems. It is a 2008 grand caravan. Very close comfortable, it is a 8 seater carries a small table for comfort. It has a DVD player for the comfort of the kids in long trips. Carries a lot of stuff very convenient to transport big things. I love my car. You will love it too. It's very good on gas.

Sarah R

Nice car if you have several children. That way everyone can ride comfortably.

I really enjoy my dodge grand caravan. It is very roomy when you put down the sto and go seats and then you can haul stuff around and it quite convenient to take friends and relatives places when the seats are up. It gets great gas mileage. My seat moves to different positions which makes me comfortable when driving.

Sandy C

I love my Dodge Grand Caravan.

I love my van. My van is a wonderful vehicle. It runs super. Drives smooth. No mechanical problems. Its nice and roomy. Sliding doors on both sides with access to far back seats from the passenger side. The back seats fold down to accommodate groceries or boxes. When the seats are upright the space behind is generous. .

Toni W

Great vehicle, good family vehicle.

This vehicle is pretty reliable. It begins to have some issues such as tire stud breakage after a certain number of miles. But it will continue to run until all the parts fall off it. Great vehicle. Very safe. The only thing I do not like is it sits too low to the ground. This makes it hard to go through snow and such.

Charity M

The good and bad of the grand caravan.

My grand caravan has plenty of space for all of my flea market inventory or for 7 passengers if I am taking my family places. It also has storage under the floorboards in the middle section. There has been one recall on the ignition system and have had to replace blinker bulbs twice in the back and the top brake light.

Betsy L

Don't buy dodge shoddy parts and wiring

Terrible for mileage over $20,000 in parts since bought faulty wiring doors freeze shut in winter and while open constantly putting news brake pads on and rotors every 3 months has had a oil leak for years that never seems to get fixed at the dealership very disappointed in dodge caravan will never buy a dodge again

Sioux M

The sun roof is great for allowing in fresh air!

The vehicle has great mileage and I have had no issues. I love the seat warmers in the winter, the lifetime satellite radio, and the storage compartment in the (floor). I do like the fact that the passengers have their own environmental controls. Lastly, I like how the seats fold down to make room for more cargo.

Cate L

08 Dodge Grand Caravan sxt the fold-down seats fold flat.

I wish I could have waited till 2009 or 10 to buy it 2008 have a lot of problems with them still all in all for the job I do it is the best vehicle I could have bought and would buy it again be wary of the 2008 transmissions assembly I had a lot of problems trying to get mine fixed properly and it cost $3, 000.

Marcia B

2008 Dodge grand caravan, perfect for the on the go mom.

I love my van but wish it had more features. Like the DVD player. I feel like I need to upgrade soon. I do like that it seats 7 and is very roomy. My kids are able to get in and out easily. We also tend to have lots of sleepovers, it's never a problem as we always have room to spare. The trunk is super roomy.

Heidi H

It can be used for many different things.

My vehicle is used in many different ways. We use it as our main mode of transportation for day to day travel. We use it for vacation road trips. It is especially good for this with all the space for luggage. We also use it as transportation for our farm produce. It is definitely an all-purpose vehicle.

Patti Z

Pros and cons of a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan.

The stow-n-go seating is helpful when more space is required (eG. , camping equipment), as well, the temperature controls for all three sections of the van. Additionally, the seats and ride are comfortable for my bad back. Downside, I wish that the rear door was power controlled like the two sliding doors.

Melissa B

Inside look of Dodge Grand Caravans.

The brakes tend to go out after a certain amount of time so you have to get them replaced and it is pretty big which personally I do not like. All of the seats in the back are able to go down into the car if you need space. The rpm goes up high easily so it takes a while to accelerate to higher speeds.

She Y

Capabilities and flexibility of uses as both a passenger and cargo hauler.

Spacious and comfortable especially for long trips. With seats down, can load a lot of boxes or luggage, etc. A very practical utility vehicle for hauling, as well as a well featured passenger van. Out of all the minivans on the market, this has the largest cargo space and flexible seat configurations.

Gil B

Great heating and cooling, not good gas mileage.

I bought it used. Have had my 2008 Dodge caravan for two in a half years and have not had any major issues. Normal wear. A very reliable vehicle. The only issue I do have is it is not very good on gas. The air conditioning and heater hit temperature quickly you do not need to wait. Has a smooth drive.

Amber B

Has stow and go and lots of storage.

Loved my van. Fits 7 people and has the awesome stow and go storage. It's also roomy and dependable. Has not broken down since we bought it six years ago. Seats are so easy to put down for more storage. You don't have to be pulling seats out and lugging them out with this van. Tons of cup holders.

Lindsay K

It is a must have family vehicle, you can pack so much into it.

I love that I have enough room for my kids as well as enough space to pack other family members in the back. I dislike at the moment that the starter is going out so it is harder to get started at times. I also dislike that there is also some rust spot that have rusted through so there are holes.

Megan L

This vehicle is safe. I have not had very many problems. Recalls when necessary.

I would have to say that I prefer to have doors that slide. I would love for the doors to unlock on both passenger and driver to unlock because sometimes I do not like the idea of having to walk all the way around. Another thing I guess I do not like how all repairs they say to go to the dealer.

Natalie R

It doesn't look like much, but it is reliable. I would trust it to go just about anywhere.

I like all the space, the stow and go seats, the smooth ride, and its reliability. I would like it more if it had more features like, power sliding doors and power liftgate. I would also like it more if it had fewer miles, but it is still reliable, especially considering how many miles it has.

Kimberly W

Electronic sliding side doors.

Overall my vehicle is great. Look the automatic sliding doors. Child safety locks are helpful locking gas cap a plus. Some small issues do exist rain water leaks in-between sliding door panel for no apparent reason air in front will stop working only for a short period back still works fine.

Chris M

Dodge grand caravan 2008 durable.

I personally think it is a really good car. It was made really well. I have had it for a while now and it has got me everywhere I need. There has not been too many issue with this vehicle. Just a few things here and there. Overall I would personally recommend this car to someone else.

Breanna W

Best family vehicle with a lot of space and comfort features.

I love my van it has a lot of great features like plenty of cup holders and plugins for chargers love the stow and go seats it has been a very reliable vehicle the only thing that has been a hiccup is it seems to go through a lot of brake pads it is really a good vehicle for families.

Brittany R

A durable, trustworthy vehicle for children that you need to transport.

The vehicle drives really well. I am happy with the storage space and the space in general inside the vehicle. The engine has been very durable. Just normal wear and tear. No big issues to speak of. I am happy with the vehicle. I would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a minivan.

Patrick H

Not worth the money I spent on it.

Goes through brakes, rotors and calipers like crazy. The one sliding door does not lock. The Dodge symbol on the back broke off. Wish the bench seats reclined a little bit. Wish the spare tire was easier to get out and put back in. overall it have been a money pit since I bought it.

Melinda S

The family in mind. Giving. The comforts a family can enjoy in a Dodge caravan.

We love our Dodge caravan. We are raising three grandchildren so it gives us plenty of room. We have front and back heating and cooling making everyone comfortable. As well as safety locks to protect the children from falling it of doors or windows. The. Perfect family vehicle.

Linda B

Great vehicle and very reliable and family friendly.

We love the stow and go seating. It makes for transporting large items and groceries very easy. The automatic doors and tailgate are great for little kids and for when your hands are full. The transmission seems to slip at times. It drives smooth and has never left us sitting.

Brittany E

Forever dependable and comfortable.

I love the comfort of my Dodge caravan, it not only rides smoothly on the highway, it also absorbs those nasty pot holes more that slot of vehicles. I can get in this car and it starts right up with no worries of being stranded. I love the caravans performance and reliability.

Leslie D

I love my grand caravan, definitely will buy one again.

My favorite feature is the stow and go seating. It is easy to operate and makes hauling things and people very convenient. It is also very comfortable to drive and ride in. There is plenty of legroom for all passengers. It is also very reliable and has pretty good gas mileage.

Michelle L

Dodge grand caravan sxt stow and go with kids.

I haven't had any major issues whatsoever with my van. It's always ready to go every single day I need it. I love so much about this van but my favorite thing has to be the stow and go feature. The stow and go is absolutely great with kids. I absolutely love my van!

Ashley W

This vehicle allows for a lot of flexibility. You can have varying amounts of seats as needed, or fewer seats to provide more space to transport large items.

I love the space in my van. It allows us to transport people and things without discomfort. I don't really like the back door. I wish it was easier to pull down the gate. There is a handle we can use, but we still have to push on the outside of the gate to close it.

Stephanie A

It wasn't built to last a long time. Never again.

Multiple problems including transmission solenoid, cracked oil pan, multiple brake issues. The display no longer works and flashes so I can't see or set the time, can't see what radio station or sing I am listening to. It makes sounds like it's falling apart.

Carol P

The most important thing for others to know about my car is that it is a family car, so there will be messes inside

I like that this vehicle fits our entire family, including 2 adults and 4 children. The van gets great gas mileage and that is very important on our extremely tight budget. However, I really wish the seats in the back folded down for convenience reasons.

Jennifer S

Amazing van for a family of 5.

No major issues with the van besides a few small things that come with the age. We love it for family outings and we are over all happy with the make and model, we plan on taking it down south the fall and look forward to the space with 3 young kids.

Melissa S

It's reliable and gets me where I want to go.

I have owned this vehicle since 2011. It has been a very good vehicle with minimum maintenance. It still looks new and has low mileage (under 50,000). I like it a lot, especially the cargo space. The only thing I would change is the mileage.

Virginia H

Caravan with Quirks still running.

Have over 130,000 miles. Fairly reliable driving-wise. Bought at Towbin Dodge NAV with lifetime bumper to bumper warranty. Disappointment is that radio never worked despite worked on at least 8 times. Also dual DVD players hardly worked.

John L

My car don't have the back seat separate from each other.

My grand caravan don't have the two separate back seat next to drivers’ I prefer those. Its starting to show rust the inside of the cars metals. The sliding door one of it is broken pretty bad because of wires frozen from last winter.

Khay Z

Beware of the brakes You will go through them

I love how roomy my van is. I can carry pretty much everything, and do. The only thing I really dislike are the brakes. Ever since I've had it, they don't last long. I've read that they are too small for the vehicle. I believe it

carol s

Carries a lot of cargo when needed.

Bought it used and it has performed pretty well. I like that all the seats in the middle and back that go into the floor to carry to make a flat surface to carry big items. Do regular service checks and it will serve you well.

Floyd H

It's been converted for wheelchair use with a lowered chassis and no possibility for a trailer hitch.

I like the space it provides, and it works well and reliably. It's pretty comfortable, too. I don't really like it's looks and the fuel efficiency is not very good. We'd like it to have come with a roof rack, but it didn't.

Christopher D

I love the space my van has. It is a stow and go, so it has a lot of under the floor storage that helped out a lot when we took our vacation!

I love the van, but the gas mileage could be a little better. Repairs have been decently easy to do, the only issue we have had on it is with the strut mounts. Also, the door sensors get a little wacky when it rains out.

Heather F

The room it has!! It is honestly is my favorite thing about my van.

I am a huge fan of the room that I have in my Dodge van. It is convenient that the seats easily go into the floor in the back making it easy to haul large items. I am not a fan of the front seats. Not comfortable a all.

Brandy H

So much space! You can easily fit 6 adults and luggage for a long road trip or fold the seats down for larger items.

My dodge grand caravan has been very dependable since we purchased it used in 2012. Very spacious for family trips. Compared to other vehicles it could be a little more comfortable. Drivers are is very user friendly.

Deena F

Dodge Grand Caravan 2008 - review

It has been very reliable. Haven't had major issues besides normal wear and tear service. Had to replace the tires every 4 years or so and breaks and rotors are probably the most that needs to be updated more frequently

Kim Z

It has hit 10 years old and 100,000 miles and is still going strong.

We are a family of six and can all fit comfortably. I like the storage compartments in the floor. The rear fold down seat is convenient for when we purchase large items. Mechanically, we have had very little problems.

Joy R

It is a great car. It works well and will drive until it all the parts have fallen off.

It is a great vehicle. Despite some problems like the wheel studs breaking down the more it is driven, this vehicle works like a horse. It takes a beating and keeps on ticking. I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Charity M

It is a very versatile vehicle. You can take lots of passengers and haul lots of items.

I like owning a van for the simple fact I can have up to 6 passengers. I can also put the seats down and use it too haul large items. I wish that it got better gas mileage, It is 10 years old and still dependable.

Michael H

That despite the miles on the vehicle it's a good vehicle.

It has power windows that don't always work in the back and a CD player that rocks. The power seat on the driver side does not work. The seats all fold down for extra storage. But I bought the vehicle used as is.

Elizabeth A

High miles, mediocre gas mileage, bare bones as far as amenities - it's a mess!

There are many amenities missing from this vehicle that I wish I had. It is getting to have A LOT of miles on it. I'm having to spend a chunk of money on repairs and maintenance. I'm ready for a new vehicle!

Sara S

It has great style for a SUV.

My grand caravan is a reliable van, does not break down very often. What I do not like is the gas mileage, I only get 11 to 12 mpg around town and 16 mpg on the freeway, much lower than it was advertised with.

Lori S

Retirement Vehicle for Life

I like the fact that the sliding doors have electric windows. I also like that is lets you lower the third row seats so you can move large items. I like the way the van rides. I dislike the gas mileage.

Debora W

My car has a lot of room for storage and is great to take on long road trips. you can spread out and relax.

I love all the room the car has to offer. I wish the seats would fold into the floor and not have to be removed. I am not liking the amount of repairs that have to be done now that the van is getting older.

Tammy R

If you want a comfortable vehicle with a lot of space it is a great choice.

I love that it is a 7 person vehicle. There is a lot of storage space in the back of the van, especially when folding down the seats. The amount of cupholders is perfect! I get pretty good mileage on it.

Mescha M

Reliable vehicle, great for traveling

My van has been very reliable other than the air conditioning. It hasn't worked correctly in 6 years. The dealership fixed it under the warranty and kept telling us it was fixed and working properly.

Kristi M

Dodge caravans are versatile and dependable.

I love my van. . . It carries 7 passengers, I can put the seats down and carry a 4x8 sheet of drywall, it handles easily. The only downfall is there is no a/c vents in the back. Gets hot back there.

Beth C

It's dependable! We haven't had any trouble with it.

I love the space that I have. I have kids so it's easy to load them & also easy to grocery shop. Also I have the stow and go seating so we can really alter the inside for our needs at the time.

Keisha M

My family loves my Grand Caravan.

I love my vehicle. It has lasted my family a long time. I will drive it as long as I can. The brakes do need changing frequently. We have had a few problems with it but nothing too expensive.

Michelle W

Stow 'n' Go is a must-have!

The sliding doors freeze in cold weather and are nearly impossible to open. This is very inconvenient for a family vehicle. But the vehicle runs well and has had few problems for its age.

Stephanie S

There's a lot of hidden storage available around the vehicle.

I like that the back seats fold down for transporting things. I like that it has a little storage compartment in the floorboard. I like that there's an outlet in the back for chargers.

Stacie G

It has hide away seats that fold down

I love the hide away seats in my van. I like how each side n the back can control their own temps. I don't like how the sunglasses holder always gets stuck when my sunglasses are in it.

Jessica P

The gas mileage is pretty good, even while driving in the city. The remote open and shut on all of the doors is very convenient!

I really like the sirius radio and the fact that I can upload my own music into the jukebox. I also like the heated seats. I think the heated seats are the best feature in the van!

Cathy L

It's a great way to transport the grandkids around town !!

I love that it the middle row of seats turn around and that there is a table that connects in the middle of them for long road trips. I dislike that the audio system is complicated.

laurel m

The van has automatic doors with a push of a button. It also has a table that fits between middle seat and back

Our van is a 2008 dodge we bought it two years ago. We have replaced starter ,breaks ,and a number of other parts but it's a great van. We travel to Texas about three times a year.

Frank P

It has a lot of cool features including heated seats!.

I love the space inside, comfort of driver's seat, how much I can haul in it.. Dislike the amount of money I have had to put into it to keep it running dislike miles per gallon.

Marcia S

It is a safe vehicle and has room for anything and everything !

I totally love my Grand Caravan. It has all the room I need shopping or camping. It has the stow go seats so I keep everything but the two front seats in the stow compartments.

Hope K

Very reliable, decent mileage and easy to drive & park.

I like that we're able to put seats down and move things. I like the ease in driving and the tinted windows in the back.. I do not like the amount of gas it uses city driving..

Melody N

It's very roomy, the seats fold into the body to create great cargo space.

It's a big box, commonly referred to as the big bus. It serves it's purpose to transport my kids around, but I honestly can't wait until I can downsize to a smaller vehicle.

Erica N

The Dodge Grand Caravan can last a long time without major engine or transmission issues.

Right now, it is in the shop for radiator issues, but for the most part, my caravan has worked extremely well. No real engine issues or transmission issues. roomy and good.

Terri D

My car has plenty of room for kids, gear, and pets.

I like that is has room for my kids and all sorts of gear for traveling and running from one activity to another. I don't like that it's looks uncool and drives like a truck.

Allison M

Convenient but a pain to fix.

A pain to work on. Brakes, exhaust, everything. Very convenient with six kids. Easy to get in and out of. Two screens for DVD viewing and open doors with a click of a button.

Amy C

Well worth the price! Easy to maintain. And it has OnStar!.

I love the stow and go seating, the powered doors and hatch, and the space. I also like the touch screen system. I dislike that there's only 1 tether anchor in the back row.

Brittany E




Minivans can be a great family vehicle - don't overlook them because of other's opinions.

My minivan is great for carrying passengers and cargo. The stow and go seating allows me to configure the space I need for larger items. The power doors are very helpful.

Sandra R

Family trip friendly but basic features

This has been a great van for us. We got a very basic model so we do miss having cruise control and rear AC. We love the stow and go especially for trips with our 4 kids.

Danielle A

Most important thing is it has hide away seat just about doubles as a pickup to haul stuff n it won't get wet

I like that I can actually haul people in it with plenty of room. I love having hide away seats in it. I like that the back n passenger can control their own heat n air.

Jessica V

It's very roomy, cost effective and will never leave you stranded

Since I purchased the vehicle I have loved it. It has never left me on the side of the road. It's very roomy and can transport my family where ever we decide to go.

Goldie o

My vann has been very reliable.

I love my van. It's very dependable and gets me where i need to go with no problems.I love all the space i have. My kids like all the space they have for their toys.

Janice B

It had stow and go which is great and makes it very versatile

It's a good van with only a couple issues. The air conditioning in the back is prone to breaking and the breaks need to be replaced often because the car is so heavy

Courtny D

It is a great family car and has a lot of room for older kids.

Haven't had any major issues, just small things that the Dodge dealership is taking care of such as sliding doors sticking, radio not working and blinker acting up.

Melissa S

The fuel economy is excellent, and having all that room is a no brainer.

Drives really well. Handles really well. Cargo space is massive. I can load up the van on the weekend and we have all the room and gadgets we need for a road trip.

Brandon D

It works for me, my family and the lifestyle we have.

I like that it has enough room for my family. It's dependable. I don't like that It's an older model and doesn't have all of the technology that newer models have.

Christine J

My car is drives great and is smooth. When you go over bumps you barely notice them.

I like that it is big enough for my family of five and has room to stretch out if we need to. I also like that it drives smoothly even with a lot of miles on it.

Michelle B

It has been a great car. Reliable, convenient, trustworthy. Works great for a family vehicle.

It has been a great van. It has close to 241,000 miles. I love the storage and the ride. Back seats are a little uncomfortable and no feet room in the 3rd seat.

Pam M

We enjoy riding in the van, drivers visibility is excellent.

The van is a comfortable vehicle to ride in. It is very dependable. It requires basic maintenance, such as oil changes, brakes and rotors and occasionally tires.

Stephen W

It was a great vehicle while my kids were young and I needed to tote them to soccer and other events.

We bought our 2008 Grand Caravan used in 2009 and it had been owned by a person who had become a missionary. It has been a great van with very little problems.

It is spacious and easily accommodates our family of 6.

It offers enough space for me and my family. I can haul many types of things with the fold and go storage features. It has decent gas mileage for the most part.

Amber L

The storage is great for a family, you can take a lot and not have to worry about not having enough room.

It east through breaks but other than that it is a great van. It fits a family well. Love the storage that the van had, great for taking families on trips.

Holly L

It rides nice and there is the option to stow the back to rows of seats for more room.

I like the look of it, it isn't boxy or a blob. There are clear lines to it. I also like how I can stow my seats for more room. It is very versatile.

Lori V

A great family vehicle! You can carry up to 8 people, or a mix of people and large items.

I love the space in my Grand Caravan! The stow and go seating enables me to fit large objects or configure just the seats I need for mid size objects.

Sandra R

Great for large families!

I like that it is big enough to hold our whole family for vacations. It drives smoothly and I like being able to able to be higher up since I am short.

Ashley M

My car is dependable and doesn't leave me stranded on the side of the road.

I like my vehicle because it is dependable and has had very few repairs. What I dislike is the amount of legroom in the third row. It does not exist.

The vehicle handles great.

It's big enough for me and my family, has lots of room for groceries, and even has the sliding doors to make it easy for getting the kids in the car.

Ashley S

Big bertha: my awesome red minivan.

Be prepared to spend a lot of money on maintenance.

I do not like the consistency of the car having problems. I do like the features within the car. The braking system on this car is terrible.

The van is fine, it is just getting old and has lots of dings and dents. I dislike how big it is and that it does not have tinted windows.

The van runs hot and the breaks freeze up when it gets hot.

I like the size of the van and the way it looks. I hate that there are many mechanical issues that i have had since owning the vehicle.

Electronic doors, do not try to force them open, let the electronics do it themselves

My wife and I both love our van. Lots of space and the fold down seating is perfect and helpful for any sort of long rides with stuff.

The car is fun, and it is more spacious than you think.

Cannot kill it if you change the oil.

It is great on gas and is able to fit my boyfriend and his kids in the car. And there's nothing that I do not like about this car.

If you have larger children i.e. teenagers, the it will not be a comfortable fit.

Great family vehicle if you have children. It has loud exhaust, many recalls and it is a gas hog. Would encourage to buy.
