2002 Dodge Caravan from North America
This van was SCARY! Power steering hoses went 3 times before they admitted to a recall. The price to fix was nothing. Time away from work lots..etc.. Tires seemed to wear down in front of my eyes. (3 sets in 70.000 miles. The water pump went and the rad as well.) It needed tranny work and the rack was leaking when I almost gave it away to a dealer. Front end always clunking and this was one car I tried to baby along!Good Luck with this one!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

We have a 2002 Grand Caravan. Overall we have been pretty happy with this car, so I can’t agree with the title of this review. We also had the P/S hoses replaced twice under recall, but never had a failure. We have not had any problems with tire wear. Currently on second set of tires at 79,000 miles and they are still in good shape. No cooling system problems, but we do have a small transmission leak. It just seeps a little bit in cold temperatures – not worth fixing. The front end clunking is a common problem and a good mechanic who knows this vehicle will replace the swaybar bushings for less than $150.
