The minivan I never knew I needed until I had one.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

I really didn't think that I was going to enjoy driving a minivan as much as I do, actually I thought I was going to hate it. This vehicle has been and amazing vehicle, especially for the price that I paid. She starts every time and gets decent gas mileage. Something about being able to remove the seats and move large things such as coffee tables or even a twin size mattress while it is raining is a feature that I didn't think would be as important as they are. I will say that it does not have Bluetooth but it is because it is before it was standard I guess. And the dual climate zones keep me and my partner happy.

Fits everything you need!

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

I love my Dodge Grand Caravan. The van comfortably fits my whole family and the stow and go seats are useful for when you are moving large items. Packing for trips is easy and there is plenty of room. The only unreliable thing about this van is the power outlets! I have had no large maintenance cost outside of the normal upkeep in the seven years I have owned the van.

- Shelley G

Great travel vehicle for comfort and storage capacity.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

The van drives and rides very well and gets good gas mileage averaging about 20 miles per gallon in the city. The double sliding doors are nice and the stow and go seating is a big improvement over earlier year models. There have been some minor issues with the time conditioning and it would be nice to have AWD for the snow.

- Elaine M

I love my grand caravan it's a great family vehicle and a good bargain.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

This vehicle is very easy to drive and the ride is smooth. It holds up to 7 people or with the stow and go seats I can haul a 4x8 sheet of plywood. I need to haul stuff but also wanted something that could carry lots of people. The power hatch is a great feature. I have owned two grand caravans and would buy another one.

- Darlene C

My van is black exterior and interior. The ac and heat work amazingly.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

The thing that sold me was the seats folded into the floor to give me a lot of cargo space. As far as safety goes it is a very safe car for my family. It is spacious with enough room for my family of 5. I have very tall children so legroom is a must in my house and there is an abundance of let room.

- Danielle L

The family car lots of room for everyone for a fun filled day

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

I should have chose the automatic push button doors but other than that we enjoy a grand Caravan plenty of seats or All seats lay flat plenty of room for stuff. Drives fine but a slow pick up nice vehicle for family or transport kids to activities. Would consider brand new grand caravan again.

- Tammy C

Dodge grand caravan is a smooth driving vehicle!

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

This van is amazing on several levels! It's comfortable and seats 8 people! Only issue I've had was the brake caliper piston seized up. Other than that it's a fantastic ride. It has a smooth engine and rides like its on a cloud. You don't realize it at first but it has a lot of power!

- Steven K

Seat fold all the way into the floor for room to haul large objects

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

It very spacious for a big family and perfect for traveling long distances. Only problem seems to be that the check engine light will go off for anything even when you need an oil change or a low tire pressure light stays on for too long. But overall it's a great vehicle

- Rachael W

Cargo space: fold in floor seats are great.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

I've had a great experience with my minivan. Issues that have affected my perfect score are brake and tire Replacement every year. Other than that I have high mileage and now the check engine light is on. But I've been very happy with it, especially the cargo space.

- Jennifer V

Comfort of Grand Caravan.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

The only problem I have had was with the transmission. It had to be replaced in 2018. I love the comfort of driving it. My grandchildren love the DVD player. I also love the amount room and storage it has. I would highly recommend this vehicle for a large family.

- Deborah P

Very comfortable on long distance travel & plenty of cargo room.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

Love the availability of third row seating. Also, lots of cargo room when seats are stowed. Seats are extremely comfortable, even during long distance travel. Gas mileage is decent for a minivan. The engine runs very smoothly. Also, the style of the van is nice.

- Tiffany R

Quality and Dependability for years

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

130,000 miles, and have never had any major problems. Very dependable vehicle. Still rides like a baby. All major vehicle parts are original factory parts. Initially had issues with the coil packs, but dealerships replaced them on recall. I love my van.

- Paul B

Very reliable family vehicle

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

We love the stow away seating. The family especially loves the option that we have the DVD player in the vehicle. Proud to have this as a 'forever' minivan! We have had no problems in all years of use. Very reliable! The gas mileage is great as well.

- Michele P

the stow and go's. I like them but dirt and other junk from kiddos gets in there

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

After you replace the factory brake pads they tend to squeak occasionally. Also the black interior is nice but shows every speck of dirt. My grand caravan is plain on the electronic side it is very comfortable on long trips and stores a lot of luggage.

- Holly F

It's a good value for a minivan. The stow and go is a really nice feature.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

The van itself is fine but it isn't what I wanted. I'm disappointed that I don't have power doors and automatic lights. I will say the car runs good but is kind of loud. It's been a dependable car. The seats are comfortable and I like the stow and go.

- Lindsay L

Grand caravan. Basic transportation

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

The reliability is really good, the seats are comfortable and positioned well. It drives like most minivans it gets you where you need to go but is not particularly fun to drive. I really wish that this vehicle had a backup camera, which it does not.
