1996 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 3.3L


Wearing well and still looks good


In general, this car has been excellent, I bought it in New Jersey, and immediately imported it into the UK as a Company Vehicle, that doubled as a Delivery Van, with more comfort, by removing the rear Captains Seats & the Bench rear seat.

The only problem, aside from routine Disc & Pad replacements has been the inaccessibility of the Plugs to be replaced at 100,000 miles, and a new Water Pump at 113,500 miles. Steering Ring replaced at 110,800 miles.

The following faults have emerged over time:

1. Rear washer motor would not stop, and depleted the bottle of washer fluid- I had to disconnect it.

2. The Interior lights all come on when the Instrument light rheostat is turned on, I have to drive on very dim Instruments, appears to be an earth (ground) fault, but where???

Would appreciate help with these niggling faults.

3. Wipers occasionally come on by themselves.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1994 Grand Voyager and had the same problem with the interior lights until I fixed the sliding door light switch. I put a piece of duct tape on the top as it was out of adjustment and would randomly turn on the interior lights, usually after a bump.

I had a problem with the front windshield wipers and my lights internal and dash. I also had my heater fan stop on all settings, but high. I traced the problem down to a switch fuse panel. it is mounted on the firewall behind the engine. I hope this helps.
