2000 Dodge Caravan Basic 3.0 V6 from North America
A more or less, good buy
The Caravan is quite good, due to the fact, that I have really used it. Major problems have been related to the electronic starter (!?) and the serpentine belt. Besides that, dealer service is not to the standards of quality and/or customer service.
The v-6 engine, manufactured by Mitsubishi, is quite powerful and quiet.
Parts are not cheap, nevertheless and that has been my major concern. For example the serpentine belt is about 100.00 installed. I recommend the Goodyear/Gatorback belt. It is quiet and well built.
To summarize, I like the Van and I plan to keep it for at least 4 more years ; but be aware, this is not a Daimler auto, is simply an average well designed American van. By the way, mine was built in Ontario, Canada.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
