  A really great feature
A member in Missouri, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Fuel economy
gets an amazing 27 mpg at 70-75 mph. In-town mileage never checked, but it is considerably less.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Controls and instruments
No compass-- seems like a stupid oversight.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Cargo capacity
I traded my Jeep Grand Cherokee for a 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T as my Jeep no longer met my expectations. While I would rate it an overall 10 for service and looks, I just needed 7-passenger capacity and more storage space. I looked at other SUVs and was prepared to give up some of the luxury but with the new van, this was not an issue as it came fully equipped to the extent I had everything that I needed. Boy, the new van just blew me away. The seat storage in the floor almost tripled the space to carry whatever I needed to carry. The storage space was longer, wider and higher which is so much more than anyone expect.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Audio & nav systems
As I listen to audio books, I would have added a multi disc CD player

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Past personal experience
This cars has had no major problems to date, other than the spare tire not dropping down. As a result I carry it behind the rear seat. Gas mileage is pretty good, and it is driven as fast as speed limits allow. There are 140000, kilometres on this 2005 grand Caravan, or about 84000 mies. I have put over 100,000 km on it personally. Is an ok winter car. It is starting to rust in the wheel well area..very small . Carpet is poor quality . Fit and trim is just ok. Overall good value.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Driving position & visibility
Excellent

  Best Bang for the Minivan Buck!
A member in Pennsylvania, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Powertrain performance
Despite having a limited amount of horsepower (compared to other modern vans), I rarely feel the need for more power. This thing shifts accurately and smoothly equipped with the 4-speed automatic.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Fuel economy
I tend to drive this thing hard, and on highway trips where I average 80 to 85 mph, the fuel economy is only around 17 or 18. Should be at least in the low 20s. Around town and with my wife driving it, fuel economy is around 20 to 21.

  Dodge mini-van
A member in Ontario, Canada

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Powertrain performance
My van is equipped with the 3.8 litre, 6 speed automatic transmission. Have had no problems with it. Far superior to the 4 speed automatic transmissions I have had in my 3 previous Chrysler vans. I currently have 141,000 kms logged.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Safety & braking
The only issue I have is with the braking system. It appears to be poorly designed and brake replacement is more frequent than in the past.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Exterior styling
Mini-van styling is by definition uncool. Mostly, after having Minivans in the garage since 1987, I just couldn't bring myself to buy another.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Feature availability
The stow-n-go seating is unmatched for convenience and practicality and it is a standard feature. This feature alone makes it a reason to buy.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Audio & nav systems
The standard radio has way too much bass. Adjusting it does not help much.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Price or payments
Great dealer price on ex-leased vehicle...much less than an equivalent Japanese van

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Brand reputation & image
2008 seems to have had many bad reviews and JD Power reliability is rated only 2 of 5.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Price or payments
Since it is domestically produced minivan, I found the Caravan comparatively cheaper, as compared to imports (and even some domestics, such as GM and Ford.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Reliability & durability
Dodge has had issues with its automatic transmissions. Also, do not have much experience owning a North American built mini-van.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan: Past personal experience
The van we rented poisoned us with carbon monoxide and gas fumes spewed through the ventilation system. I passed out while driving and spent the night in the hospital. The rest of my family was sick for weeks.
