What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Minivan, ext. 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I dislike the current emphasis on hard seats (and this applies to most other brands as well- Toyotas and Hondas are the worst). Enthusiast magazines can rave all they want about great support, etc, but the softer seats in friend's '92 Caravan are more comfortable than these in my 2013. I have an SXT model, which is sort of mid level in Grand Caravans, and it does have a power seat. However, that is an OPTION, and it should be standard above the SE model. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review

Nice car, but front seats could be better. Close to a deal breaker. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Minivan, ext. 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
3.6 engine is very strong; acceleration is great. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review
2011 4dr Minivan, ext. 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The powertrain is smooth and powerful and shifts aggressive if pushed or economically if set to “eco” mode. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review
2012 Dodge Grand Caravan Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Minivan, ext. 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
6 speed transmission is clunky and unpredictable. One time it shifts great, the next it's shifting too hard or too soft. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review
2012 4dr Minivan, ext. 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
This thing has some ridiculous number of gears, and you can feel the shifts as you go along. The engine has to be spun up to get the big power-it didn't seem nearly as powerful as it's rating. see full Dodge Grand Caravan review
