"My 99 Dodge caravan (Mini pearl)has been nothing but dependable. She was the first family vehicle that we bought when my first son was born; and now, she will be his first car. Unfortunately she doesn't have the cool factor, but he is honored that she will be his."

"We have loved this car. We bought it new and have hauled 3 kids with friends around town and on many trips. Every time we try to sell it, we end up keeping it because it has been and continues to be such a good car. I love how versitile the seats are. They are easy to take out. We even took the captains chairs out once and moved the back bench into the middle position for extra luggage area. The AC did go out about 150,000 miles and it developed an oil leak at 200,000 miles, but I would buy this model again."

"My Dodge Caravan offers a quality and classic stylish look. It gives only the finest transportation that Dodge has offered. It gives a fine interior. I love the pattern in my seat. The leather backing ties the inside comfort together. Although it is a American car (which I am not very fond of). I would except it as any Japanese or German car. I give Dodge a A+."

"Being the third I have owned, if this one makes it another 5,000 miles, I will have owned three Dodge Caravans that have over 300,000 miles on them. These vans are comfortable and extremely reliable. I love my van and I am actively looking for another one to purchase."

"I love this van. The owner before me took immaculate car of it. I have had no issues with this van other then the Multifunction switch which controls the blinkers and the windshield wipers malfunctioning and the blinkers only working some of the time. Replaced it and the new switch went out after about 5wks also... I do recommend this van HIGHLY especially when you have kids and kids in carseats. One suggestion is to get a security system of some sort like lojack, because this is a VERY VERY common vehicle to steal(#2 in Michigan!! out of the top 10 list, 8 are dodge caravans!!!). The only reason I don't have mine anymore is because it was stolen! The back seats come out so it is a common choice for thieves. 198900mi and it was still going amazingly. Drive was smooth, turning was awesome and it was still awesome at accelerating and handled fantasticly on the highway!"
