1999 Dodge Caravan SE 3.3 from North America
Head Gasket-Not a good buy!
Heater has a dusty dirty smell when it is turned on. Brakes went at 80,000 km. Head gasket cracked at 95000 km.
Generally the caravan is a nice family van. However, having a major malfunction like the head gasket blowing is very discouraging. I will never purchase another dodge again. The customer service @ Daimler-Chrysler was orchestrated/Scripted and provided no feelings of reassurance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Brakes went at 80K? How long do you expect them to last?

The head gasket blew and other than the heater smell, you think it's a bad van? Put some miles on it, and then post back.

Although some manufactures are notorious with head gasket problems... Remember ANY head gasket on most any car can blow if a good cooling system maintennance is not observed.
