2012 Dodge Grand Caravan sxt

We are at 112k miles, and are experiencing our first problem (CD will not eject.) The van is used for trips and is very comfortable with decent gas mileage. Although often used to haul numerous grandkids, the flat cargo area was essential in that the van is also often used as a delivery vehicle, especially around the holidays for our flower shop. One issue we have is getting traction with the front wheels (FWD) in rain or snow. We now use snow tires year round to solve that problem. We plan on keeping our Caravan for a long time.

Automatic dual sliding doors, rear door

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

We have electrical issues from time to time, mainly with the DVD player. There is a traction control feature that when in does not allow us use cruise control. We love the automatic sliding doors and rear. There is plenty of room for all our kids. Unlocking the front passenger door with the key fob works intermittently. Basic maintenance such as oil change wiper blades etc is very simple in this van.

A great car for a mother of 3

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

My car was good when my kids were smaller. The storage room is ok after you put the seats down. Not so good if everyone is riding in the car. The double sliding doors were a plus but ventilation in the back area isn't great. The doors that slide stick street a while no matter how much you vacuum the tracks out. Haven't had many mechanical problem either which is great

Very spacious nice caravan

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

I really love our van! It has room for our whole family and all of our belongings when we go on road trips! It's very spacious and has a lot of cargo room. Under the seats there is cargo space and all of the seats can go into the floor if we need to move something. It's great on gas mileage. If anything needs to be fixed parts are relatively cheap and easy to fix yourself.

Stow away seating rocks great hiding place for kids gifts.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Always a problem with struts and tires and brakes. This is my second dodge grand caravan and same problem. Love the stow away seats... Love the automatic doors and rear camera rides well and great gas mileage. Also love the windows go down on the rear doors helps give breeze to kids in the back. Very roomy and comfortable to drive.

My minivan is a white dodge caravan with stow & go seats.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

My minivan's brake system is super inefficient. I have to replace my brake pads more often than with any other car I have previously owned. I have had to replace my rear calipers twice in the five years I owned the car. Otherwise my minivan is very reliable. I would prefer if her cabin air filter was a bit easier to change.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Car is great but definitely a gas guzzler. Wish it had a full middle row to fit more kids. Truck is spacious and can fit a lot of groceries. Seats are nice and comfortable. Has a vice DVD which is a great feature for the kids. The speakers that came with the car are not the best and you need to change them. Not a big deal.

- Tara C

Well loved and enjoyed family vehicle

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

We love our minivan! The stow n go has been amazing. There is so much storage. It has taken us on so many adventures and been so reliable. Our family of 6 fits comfortably and there's room for a friend. The only issue we had was our transmission went out last year but otherwise it's been a well loved and enjoyed vehicle.

- Naomi C

The dodge grand caravan is a must drive.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

I love the way it drives but it tends to have issues with the engine the closer you are to the 100,000 mile mark. The style is remarkable and the comfort is superb. It's easy on gas and the tank holds plenty of gas for a nice road trip. If I to buy another vehicle I would definitely chose this vehicle again.

An interesting detail will have to be the automatic doors.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

My car is really comfortable for me and the kids. It has a lot of room in the inside. The kids usually ride comfortably. The outside looks really nice. One thing I would change is the air conditioning outlets. Meaning that where the air comes out of in the back, should be more convenient.

- Juan C

Perfect for long trips for everyone to have a comfortable ride.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Have owned for four years with no mechanical problems. Very reliable. All but one 'cigarette' lighter port has went out for charging electronics. Appears to be a wire issue that hasn't been worth the time to investigate. As long as kept up with normal maintenance good vehicle.

Makes going on week long trips with the family a breeze

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

No real dislikes. Roomy, folding rear seats, triple zone climate control. Reliable, fair gas mileage. The 3.6L motor has plenty of get up and go, and transmission shifts smoothly. The cloth interior is comfortable, and plenty of room for the family. I recommend for any family.

Van with A whole lot of space

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

The van has a ton of room inside. I love that I can move all the back seats down if needed. I can open the side doors and back with a push of a button which helps a lot. We have had a few problems with the doors breaking.thankfully, most issues have been easy fixes.

- Cassandra Z

The van has great underseat storage and the seats all lay down.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

The van is very reliable. I currently have no problems. I do wish that it was better on gas. I take the van on long trips without any problems. It drives smoothly, the seats are comfortable, and plenty of room to pack things in the truck and under your seats.
