1996 Dodge Caravan ES 3.3 liter from North America
This vehicle will be the death of me
70000 miles the transmission blew
66000 the radiator coolant fans went out
71000 serpentine belt broke
71500 van recall for the rail
80000 the van started to shake/rattle
81000 I tried to trade in the van and they said that it was less than half the value that I paid.
81500 the tires were replaced, struts replaced, axles replaced, motor mounts replaced.
This is the worse vehicle that I have ever owned, I am stuck with it for the next 2 years. Dodge doesn't care that they are the worst company for making vehicles. The money that we have put into this van and still it does not drive down the road like it should. I wish that I would have listened to my husband and just stuck with a Chevy. This is unsafe for my children and my grandchild to ride in. I was such a fool to think that because the dealer told me that this was the best van for the money that he would tell me the truth.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I understand fully what you are going through. I just recently traded my cra*..ooops, 96 caravan in for a 2000 Bonneville. Thank the Lord the dealer paid off what I owed on the van and gave me a great deal on the car :) That van was the biggest nightmare in repairs I've ever seen. I probably paid for it three fold just in repairs!
Believe me when I say I did my homework this time before buying another automobile!
