About Dodge Caravan Passenger

Dodge started the minivan revolution and continues to be a major player in an ever-expanding segment. Though not as large as the newest vans from Hyundai and GM, the Caravan continues to provide a pleasing mixture of family-friendly features and affordability. The Caravan's small wheelbase makes it easier to maneuver and park than its larger sibling, the Grand Caravan, though its standard four-cylinder engine is no match for a good V6. With the demise of the Mazda MPV, the Caravan doesn't face much in the way of direct competition, at least not the four-cylinder model. It does, however, have to contend with the Kia Sedona, a larger and better-equipped minivan that sells for about the same price.

"I bought our Caravan already used, but just 10k miles on it 5 years ago and the car never had to go to the shop other than for maintainance!! Just love it!! Specially because a bunch of mechanics tend to take advantage overcharging Moms . The pedals are a little too low so I had to find a good pillow to sit on and get me closer (sure, I'm 5"2', but one would assume many women are short and drive vans w/ kids!. This is the only problem I've had. We use it to pull our trailer when we go camping... travel a bit with it and it's been a great car."

"I have a 2003, it's still running pretty good. We've done all the schedualed up keep on the caravan. The only down side to the van is that it has a whine or kind of speaky sound that no one seems to know where it is coming from since it doesn't do it all the time. A friend of mine has a 2008 that does the same thing. Our joke is that it doesn't like cold weather. This van works really well for our 3 children. It's easy to get in and out of and has plenty of room. The only thing we had to add on was a roof rack, which every mini van should come standard with."

"We've had our van for a year and a half now, and we love its comfort and usefulness. It's so much more roomy for my 3 growing sons than the little car we had before. It makes shopping and traveling more enjoyable. The 4 captain's chairs and rear bench are great for us because everybody gets their own seat and there's no more fighting and touch-me-nots. There is plenty power for what we do, and it has been perfectly reliable so far. The fuel efficiency is not as good as I was hoping, though. I get around 18/21. Sound system is good, center console between the two front seats is handy. In a moderate collision, the airbags did not deploy, which is great, because they weren't needed at that speed. Repair was fast and not too costly, because there are a gillion of these vans around and parts are plentiful. We're happy so far."
