THEY DO NOT STAND behind their vehicle as one would expect from a manufacturer of a BRAND NEW Mini-Van. My last Dodge/Chrysler after 24 years of purchasing...as many of the family too. Employee or not discount or not...NO THANKS! We are going elsewhere. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review

Web reports/research states that oil consumption problem is not normal and one should worry about long term durability of the engine. Other research shows Daimler-Chrysler has overall quality and safety issues. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review
