2002 Dodge Caravan Sport from North America
One of the worse cars I ever owned regarding repairs.
This vehicle has had multiple problems with the heating and air conditioning.
The heat would only work while accelerating. That problem was fixed by replacing the compressor and vacuum hoses.
On long trips during the hot months, the air conditioning leaks into the front passenger floor. Enough to soak the carpet and squish when stepped on.
Took it for repair, an "O" ring was replaced.
The next long trip using the air conditioning, it leaked again. Debris was cleared from the drainage hose.
Next summer vacation, another leak. Took it for repair again. Was told the dash would have to be taken apart to find the problem. Left the van to be fixed.
Fourth trip, fourth leak. Can now be fixed for an additional sum since no longer under warranty.
Still leaks during long trips in the summer.
Good size for a bigger family.
Not worth the time spent getting repaired.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

There is an easy fix for the A/C. Get a PVC Elbow and glue it on the A/C drain line, located on the passenger side under the hood. You will see a black pipe coming out of the fire wall pointing towards the engine. The wind blows the water back in. Simply get a fitting to make it point down and glue it on.
