| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Caravan|
| ||General comments:||Please beware of Dodge caravan, the money pit. I bought a 1997 model new and everyone told me the transmission would fail at 70k miles. My wife treated it like a baby, and we had the service done at 30K and 60k miles. Guess what, it failed at 72k miles and cost $1800 to fix. And this was a rock bottom price. Oh, btw, the timing belt broke at 11k (yes 11k) miles and it has used a quart of oil every 1500 miles since new. when the timing belt broke chrysler took 12 days to fix it!! And how can I forget the check engine light which has stayed on constantly since 10k miles. the dealer cannot explain it and chrysler corp could care less. the engine skips horribly every few months because the spark plugs have failed and need repalcing (they are not fouled by oil). Also the plug wires need replacing every year at the most. here is the kicker, the transmission mechanic (not the front desk salesman) told me "chrysler keeps our doors open". this is a quote.|
