    2002 Dodge Grand Caravan - Sport FWD

    Pros: auto sliding doors, auto real tailgate, interior layout and room

    Cons: mechanical failures

    Advice: be prepared for frequent mechanical problems

    My first grand caravan's transmission went just 6,000 miles out of warranty. After replacing first caravan's transmission--I knew enough to purchase the extended warranty. 2nd caravan's transmission went just 8,000 miles out of warranty. Car handles well and is very comfortable for long travel w/family and friends. Opt for touring pkg -- gives a nice smooth ride. Lots of small computer problem w/sliding doors, engine and seatbelt lights going on, etc. Make sure you have a good service dept. Car is functionally superb for my family--but not worth the downtime in mechanical problems.

    Pros: Lots of window area, you can see all around the van

    Overall a great ride and value for the money. I bought used and got a great deal from a dealer on ebay. Very sporty styling and looks great when detailed out. CD was not standard on this model year, wish it had one. Overall it is a great vehicle for the money and am pleased with it so far.

    2002 Dodge Grand Caravan - Sport AWD

    Pros: Disc Brakes

    Cons: Poor mileage, Poor, poor resale value, High cost of maintenance at dealer,

    Advice: Resale value is terrible on these Chrysler vans. Honda and Toyota are worth 50% more at resale or trade in time.

    Handles firmly and corners well. Four wheel disc brakes work very well. Seats are heavy and do not fold into floor. Should have bought the Odyssey because it would have been worth $8K more with 60K miles; would have cost me only $2K more at the time of purchase.

    2002 Dodge Grand Caravan - Sport AWD

    Pros: Comfort, tri-zone climate control.

    Cons: Quality and reliability of the car.

    Advice: Either get extended warranty, know for sure that your dealership has a good service department, or don't buy this car.

    Drives well, has enough power. Vehicle constantly has problems (factory recall on steering, hoses, etc.). Turn signal signals in the wrong direction (left instead of right)...one dealership did not have parts, the other dealership cannot find problem and refuses to fix it. Also makes some squealing noises during summer, but dealership cannot find problem either. Called Dodge corporate, and they cannot do anything except refer to the same dealers that cannot solve the problem.

    2002 Dodge Grand Caravan - Sport AWD

    Pros: style, looks, drive

    Cons: no quality in the vehicle

    Advice: I wish I would have bought a Honda or Toyota

    Don't buy this Chrysler product. Now at 61,000 miles it has been in the shop at least 10 times. The people at the dealership are professional and have been, I believe, trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Everything from brake lights staying on to the door open alarm while driving, to transmission not shifting right to now engine knock that they say is normal. It's a good looking vehicle but, there seams to be very little qaulity in this product. Definately my last Dodge ever to own.
