1995 Dodge Caravan from North America
Awesome van for adventure
The vehicle's transmission was in need of repair when it had reached 92,000 miles.
Then, again, the rebuilt transmission failed at 197,000 miles, and was repaired.
The all four tires had to be eventually replaced also.
My van has been a loyal servant to me and those who travel with me. It has given safe and enjoyable trips for my family and I. It is comfortable for resting, and spacious for people and luggage.
Now it's running fine at 208,000 miles. I can hardy believe it has made it this far. I have taken my van through muddy trails, and steep and bumpy terrains in the woods.
My friends riding with me thought we would get stuck for sure when I took this beast through rough, narrow four-wheeler trails in the mountains, but the van pulled through, showing it's true strength and ability.
My faithful $18,000 van with $4,000 in repairs has been well worth the price of a $22,000 SUV. My baby may have the body style of your Mom's minivan, but it has got the heart and soul of a fun, go-any-where sports utility vehicle!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Our transmission went out at 120,000 miles. Compared to most, I think we were lucky. The front end "wobbles" at 10-20 MPH. The Air conditioning never works and the heater core clogs annually. Now we get a "check engine" light with a code 21 (oxygen sensor)...again and again. Aside from these problems, I agree with you... I like the vehicle. If only it were not a mechanical piece of poorly engineered junk!? HMMM...
