1993 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 6 cylinder from North America
What turned me off to American cars forever
Where to begin?
3 transmissions in 4 years.
Passenger door and sliding door handles fell off.
Rear view mirror fell off.
Horn would stick on.
Interior lights would short out.
Visor light took weeks to be repaired by dealership.
I went to a dealership that sold Toyota, Dodge, and Mazda. (Knowing that if I traded it in, they couldn't tell me what a pile it was since they sold those cars) Looking at the car, the dealer told me they would give $9000 for the trade-in. After driving it, they rescinded the offer and gave $1000.
I own a 1998 Toyota Sienna and have not had a problem with it in the 7 years I've owned it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Your problem is that you owned a Toyota and a Honda before. I always owned American cars, and the 93 Grand Caravan has been the best of the lot. Yes, I've had 3 transmissions too, and now the paint is peeling off the roof, but other than that the car has been remarkably service-free over 12 years and 125k. One tune-up, new water pump, 2 starter motors, radio booster amps failed. Other than that -- no problems. We still keep the car in the family, but now I drive a Toyota Matrix.
