2003 Dodge Grand Caravan ES AWD 6 cylinder from North America
Near excellent car, from reliability to versatility
Transmission was changed at 160,000 miles.
I did replaced the battery and tires every 60,000 miles.
Twice fixed the radiator leaks with "bars stop leak".
I've replaced the fan resistor just recently.
Good reliable car with variable capability - hauling people and cargo.
It has now over 190,000 miles. The secret of being able to achieve high mileage of this car & my other cars, is that I don't go back any more to the dealership just before the warranty expires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
Review Date: 14th August, 2011
I did the original review. I am back for updates.
I have added couple of thousand miles and updated my Grand Caravan ES AWD.
I converted it to mini-micro RV or motor home with toilet, bed & curtains. It can carry 4 adults & can sleep also 4. I used it for camping trips and also as daily driver. I also used it to go to the casino, & slept in it instead of checking in.
To convert it to micro RV, I spent less than $100. I did spent about $700 in materials to put in a new radiator, new wiper motors, new fuel pump, brakes, anti-sway bars, and update the A/C.
Although the engine sounds like diesel, the car runs smooth. Gas mileage is still 19 miles/gallon (combined).
In short, I love it more than ever, & hope to reach 500,000 miles as I read in a forum. So far I am close to 200,000 miles.
Wish me luck, & good luck to all Dodge Grand Caravan ES 2003 owners.
