"In 11 years I have replaced the battery several times and the tires once. I have had the belts replaced every 5 years. I had the water pump replaced at 10 years, small leak. Front brakes pads replaced at 9 years. Rear lift gate cylinders replaced at 9 years, they were getting weak. Vehicle will get 25-26 mpg on long trips. California to Colorado 26 mpg going and 25 return. Made this trip many times and mileage always about the same. Doesn't overheat with the engine and AC going in 105 F. heat when stopped on the highway for two hours outside Las Vegas because of an accident up ahead. This is the second Dodge Van that I have had, the first one was under powered with a 4 cylinder engine and a 3 speed transmision."

"This car does everything I want it to do. BUT it is certainly not sexy. Dodge value engineered the heck out of it. After the first year, I had everything repaired. That included loose cup holders, failing interior trim, undersized radio speakers, loose knobs, failed fan rheostat. Now it is working fairly well, but the usual requires repairs including front end parts, motor mounts and transmission rebuild. I have kept it up because it is cheaper than purchasing a new car. Dodge does make this short bed Caravan anymore. The larger Grand version does not park well in the city. Once you know how to maintain this car, it is an acceptable people hauler and work car."

"I love my caravan, I wanted to get a new one but it is just out of my budget. I bought this 2001 in 2006 when I had a 3rd child. The car seat are so comfortable ride in when you are driving. It is fun to drive and very maneuverable through traffic. I am only getting a new car now, because the van needs to be replaced. I am hoping to sell her to a kid who isn't planning to take her on a very long trip....over 178,000 miles on the odometer and the only thing that went recently was the overdrive which a mechanic or person really good with cars can fix."

Very well suited for our needs,

"Van was purchased new, one owner, driven 6 months after new tires were installed. Mr. in the family could no longer drive due to eye disease. Mrs. has her own car. Mostly long distance driving for vacations. AC works very well. slider doors open on both sides. Middle bucket seats and rear seats, divides into two seats and all 4 can be removed. Mrs. usual removed seats for packing for vacations, were heavy but could handle them. A new battery has been installed."
