| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Caravan |
| ||General comments:||I have not been very impressed with this mini-van. I've had it about a year, and with just over 34k, it has the following problems; The transmission has to be overhauled, the right side sliding door rattles as if it's not closed tightly, The shocks and struts are shot, the driver's side dash air vents are broken and the brakes pulsate. It also has no power as compared to my 95 caravan with the same 3.8 V6 engine. The rear door as well as the right side sliding door won't unlock about 25% of the time. The headlights are a joke! I swear I could see better with a couple of flashlights taped to the fenders! In short, my overall impression is not very good. I planned on keeping this vehicle for another 2 years and trading for a newer one but, unless Dodge can get all of these problems worked out, it will be for another brand!|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||The unbelievable number of problems this vehicle has with such low mileage makes me wary of it's reliability.|
| ||Previous car:||My first mini-van was a 1995 Caravan, which I traded for this 1998. It had about 80k when it was traded. I had it only about 18 mos., but had no problems with it at all. It had far more power than the 1998 I have now.|
