1997 Dodge Caravan SE from North America
I have replaced the front brakes once a year. Twice I have replaced the rotors, This last time I replaced the calipers on the front and the back cylinders, but the pads were still like new have never replaced the back pads. This last repair cost just under $700.00.
Timing belt went, $190.00 plus tax, to replace it.
The front seat has a mind of its own as driving down the road it will slide all the way back (I am very short).
Just had the clock spring replaced thank goodness for the recall.
Now I am leaking oil.
I still have over 2 years left to pay for this junk.
I am sure by the time I pay this off I will have to replace trans. & motor.
I do like the way it drives, except when going up hill in summer I have to turn the a/c off in order to make it up the hill.
The seats are comfortable (except when I go flying back every once in awhile.)
I have a daycare out of my home and do take children on short trips, I am dreading the day I break down with 5 or 6 kids in it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
