Pros: Leather!, lift installed for my power chair.
Cons: Just the gas mileage, and perhaps the color blue, as I mentioned above.
Advice: As long as you drive resononably, this baby will last your lifetime!Overal, this van has been a wonder to drive and own. About the only thing I would change, is the color from blue to black, as I am an avid Oakland Raider fan!
Pros: big, comfortable, u can chill with lot of ppl :)
Cons: transmission. quality of the car
Advice: dont buy it after 60000 mile. transmissionI purchased this car used.from an Auction. But I had so many problems.1 safety recall.Because of steering wheel.and the biggest problem is transmission.I changed it TWICE. Dont buy a dodge minivan after 60000 mileage...
Pros: comfortable seats
Cons: removing the heavy seats
Advice: find an honest mechanicI loved my 1999 caravan sport, we changed the oil regularly, took care of it, I put 95,000 miles on it in the 4 years that I had it, the only trouble was a less than 10.00 part, a transmission sensor. Yes a sensor not the transmission. and the serpentine belt. I did not have the extended warranty, Didn't need it. I just traded it in on a 2005 stow-n-go!
Pros: looks and driving comfort when it isn't in the shop
Cons: constant electrical and mechanical problems
Advice: don't buy itWaited 5 years for this vehicle and what a disappointment. 15 trips to the dealership not including the few to my personal mechanic. Electrical shorts causing mechanical malfunction and shorts in the instrument panel gauges and starter and transmission. Van has died 2 in 2 months and dealer now refuses to take responsibility for repair. If you have nothing better to do than take trips to the service shop, buy one.
Cons: color of interior- lacks imagination- everything is same color.
Advice: ride beats competitionSmooth ride, handles well for a large vehicle.
Pros: the handling and comfort
Cons: power window controls are placed farther away than the lock controls,what do you use more often
Advice: if it is in the budget a tv/dvdwe bought mine in july 2002 and i am absolutely in love.it handles wonderfully,the turning radius is excellent,and thepick up is great.we added a dvd player,which was heaven on our last trip home which was 900 miles.very comfortable for driving long distances,never had a sore hiney.i did not want a van but i have to say i am so glad i got this one.it looks great and runs better than it looks.
