"I bought a 2002 Grand Caravan Sport in January of 2006. This car was very comfortable, roomy and all the controls were easy to reach. I was sad when it's engine blew in September 2014 and the dealership wanted $6800 to put in a new one. The transmission went out in 2008, the battery would always die if I didn't drive it for a couple of days, then the engine died because of a oil leak according to the dealership. Which is weird because my husband checked the fluids every 2 weeks and I would have noticed a major oil leak on my driveway. I truly loved the body style and interior comfort of the caravan and I was willing to pay for a new engine, but husband was done with this car. Maybe I just got a bad one as we did buy it used and who knows how the previous owner drove it."

"I bought it new and have been very well satisfied with overall performance, reliability, comfort, etc. It is still running just fine and looks good... just drove it to Florida and back with no problems whatsoever."
"This van is very easy to drive and is very comfortable. It has the "stow and go" package which is wonderful when grocery shopping or hauling things. Just let the seats down and it is a cargo van....a nice one at that."
Pros: "Great for travel, work, camping. carring the kids"
Cons: "gear stuck, and ceiling lining need gluing"

"I bought this van new in 2002 it has 137,000 miles. Great gas mileage has all new tires (est. 6 months old) and a one month old battery. It has a passenger auto sliding door and a roof rack. The problem is the shift is stuck. Interior is in good condition, some ceiling gluing is needed. Four removable seats great for extra space, storage or hauling. Exterior has a slight dent. Love this van but I need a car."
"Overall, I like this 2006 van, it has preformed well and has been reliable. The sto-and-go seats are great but the noise levels on the highway are quite loud. The transmission slips a little and the breaks aren't as responsive as other cars/vans I've driven. The bumpers are silver as is the rest of the van but, I've never understood why they are black under the silver. Any nicks or scratches show the black paint. The bumpers should just be black, they'll look better longer. The only rust I've seen is just in front of the rear wheel, which is right where I see it on other vans like mine and newer."
Cons: "The back seats don't fold down in this years model"

"My vehicle has been to the mechanic too many times to count. I have owned this vehicle since 4/2004. I have put sooo much money into this vehicle! The only thing keeping me from buying a new vehicle is lack of money (SAHM). When your mechanic knows you by name just by the sound of your voice when you call to make an appointment that is not a good sign."
