Pros: Remote rear hatch opening and closing.
Cons: cup holders on rear seats.
Advice: Can get great deals on this vechicle. Got mine for $8500 off list.Excellent storage space, all seats fold down easily and love the way remote doors open as well as back hatch. Radio controls on steering wheel come in handy on trips. Like it very much. 4th Chrsler Van I have owned. This is by far the best.
Pros: STOW & GO
Cons: TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS
Advice: LOOKS GOOD, TOO MANY PROBLEMS FOR A NEW CAR!!!!!WE BOUGHT OUR 2005 GRAND CARAVAN IN NOVEMBER,AND LOVED IT AT FIRST; AFTER 1 MONTH I HAD TO HAVE A NEW STEERING RACK PUT IN BECAUSE OF SOMETHING WITH THE POWER STEERING COOLING; AFTER 3 MONTHS, I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE TRANSMISSION, THE DEALERSHIP IS GREAT AND MAKING GOOD FOR IT, BUT IT IS SLIPPING A-G-A-I-N!! IF YOUR PURCHASING THIS AS A NEW VEHICLE AND EXPECTING A DEPENDABLE CAR LIKE I DID, THINK AGAIN!!! I HAVE MORE PROBLEMS WITH THIS THAN I DID ANY PRE-OWNED VEHICLE I OWNED PRIOR!!!
Pros: Stow and Go Seating
Cons: I'm 6'4'. Car Seat still doesn't fit behind me.
Advice: Go w/ the Grand Caravan to get the Stow and Go seatingWe always said we wouldn't buy a a mini van, but we love this vehicle. V6 gives good power. Grand Caravan is long, but still very maneuverable. I recommend the Grand Caravan (long wheel base) w/ the SXT pkg. You get so many features included, the value is terrific. I cannot say enough about the Stow and Go Seats. The flexibilty of space they offer w/o having to wrestle with your vehicle, make the Grand Caravan a MUST have since Stow and Go is not offered in the short wheel base. We love our Grand Caravan SXT.
Pros: Stow 'N Go seats
Cons: Flimsy plastic floor cover between second row bucket seats
Advice: Be sure to research and compare any potential vehicle purchase to the competitionSecond and third row seats do sacrifice size, appearance, and perhaps comfort to allow the stowable feature. Floor cover between second row bucket seats is flimsy and uncarpeted. Third row outside seats have limited foot room; toes cannot extend under the second row seats. Despite these initial observations, we are very impressed with Dodge's exterior styling, the Stow 'n Go functionality, the 3.8 L V6 performance, and the interior finish. Convinced this is a much better value than the competition; very pleased with our purchase.
Pros: Stow and Go
Advice: We looked at several other minivansI have owned 5 minivans since 1985, three of them Dodge, my 2005 appears to be the best of all
Pros: Stow n Go
Advice: Better thatn anything else offeredComfortable, RELIABLE, great product.
