1996 Dodge Caravan Sport V6 from North America
Looks good, but made from cheap parts
Clear coat failed on candy-apple red; $1000 extra charge for this paint job, but it all peeled on the roof and hood. Dodge will not respond despite visits to dealers in 1968-68-70, etc. It began to peel in 1968 and now looks awful.
Replaced all door locks, steering wheel, front mirror fell off, oxygen sensors, side mirror broke, cd player jams, battery shorted, new clock spring. one horn dead again, etc.
The caravan is all plastic; good looking, but CHEAP parts and bad paint on the 96 Sport.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1996 Dodge Caravan Sport... Cheap Parts? Only in design by Dodge. Headlight housings are plastic that become opaque over time and poor lighting of the highway. Another problem is the plastic brackets that hold the housing in place break, and the entire assembly will fall out. This same headlight assembly is poorly made with the adjustment screws for the headlight alignment. They routinely break and fail to operate at all when the headlights need to be adjusted. Replacement of the plastic housing to hold the headlights range from $92 to $184 for this piece of poor quality plastic. I see this as a common problem of many I have work on or helped to restore. In most cases they are a waste of money when purchased new, and foolish to invest into as a restoration project.
