Our white knight has been an incredible vehicle for our young, growing family.

This van has been incredible for our family of seven. The back seat side doors open with the push of a button which has been incredibly helpful when I am trying to load up the kids and groceries. And then when we do not want to use that feature, there is an off button. This van has several cup holders which has also been incredibly useful. Unfortunately, there have been two product alerts regarding our vehicle--something about the front side door wiring could randomly ignite. Our local Dodge dealer fixed the issue, both times, free of charge and in a reasonable amount of time. As far as comfort goes, we love it! Before this van, we owned a Dodge Durango. Once we sat in our newly traded van, we couldn't believe how soft and comfortable the seats were! The driver's seat has several adjusters to make the seat perfect for whomever sits there. My husband and I are quite tall and there is enough leg room and our heads do not hit the ceiling. We bought the white exterior color and we just love it!

Winter weather watch & warning.

This vehicle rides low to the ground therefore if you live where you get snow it makes it a challenge to drive thru. Snow and slush get compacted up in the wheel wells and making braking difficult at times. Also in colder weather the windshield wipers for both front and back tend to freeze up unless you have subzero fluid in the washer compartment. The windshield wiper blades also get loose not certain that the manufacturer has chosen the best size for this vehicle. In addition the back window seems that wiper could be longer to clear more of that window as it makes for seeing in rearview mirror quite limited on inclement weather days. There are also what seems to be quite a few blind spots for the driver which makes lane changes a bit unnerving at times.

Dual heat control, back heat control. Dual push button doors and trunk.

My 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan has not had many issues. The biggest issue we have had is there is a leak in the aluminum line for the ac which is very costly to fix. It seats me, my husband, and 4 kids semi comfortable, it's not the most car seat friendly van on the market. Our transmission seems to be acting up but the mechanics say this is a chipped transmission so really best for one driver to always drive it. I really love the push button dual sliding doors and trunk, comes in handy when grocery shopping with 4 kids. We will be upgrading in the next couple of years as my kids get bigger because there is not very much leg room in the third row. All the seats in the back fold down into the floor so it's very easy to haul things that a normal van cannot.
