1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Reviews

266,000 miles and still running good. Starting to nickle and dime me but after 10 years it is still a good rig.
Bought this in 2003 w 47K miles. Pros: I really like the roominess...I can fit the family one day, or fit a ton of equipment another, or haul a load of firewood or stuff from Home Depot on another. It seems to be perfectly sized for most everything I do. The 3.8L motor is really strong and could probably humble many of the sporty cars out there in a race from stop. Fuel economy is excellent...
Great vehicle ,now have 175000 miles with little trouble,only slight oil leak from valve cover
