Dodge Caravan SE
| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Caravan SE|
| ||General comments:||I have worked on and been around Dodge Caravans since the beginning of the model. I have always liked them and found them decently reliable compared to virtually all of its competition. Check the reviews for any vehicle and you will find transmission problems and head problems and everything in between. But my Caravan has 120,000 miles on it and it still runs strong and shifts perfectly. I know that the belt tensioner is going to give out soon, it happens every sixty thousand miles. For people to think that every car is going to last for 300,000 miles with no problems at all is just plain foolish. Or even 100,000 miles. The only cars that do that are Mercedes 300D Turbodiesels. Talk to anyone who works on a variety of cars and is not biased such as your friend Ed who worships GM's or Ralph who will only ever drive a Ford. You may find out more than you want to know. You may end up riding a bike. :)|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||-Little rattles here and there (My wife can't hear them)-Rear sparkplugs are hard to get to-Engineering defects that can be fixed or avoided.|
| ||Previous car:||Previous car was a 1991 Mercury Sable LS loaded and worth all of 100 bucks when it was towed away. I wish I hadn't found the wiring problems in it so it would have caught fire so I could have collected the insurance money.|
