2005 Dodge Grand Caravan from North America
I will never purchase a Dodge ever again
The battery went before the 2 year mark.
The tires needed to be replaced around the same time, despite the fact that we continually rotated them on schedule.
The brakes had to be replaced at 18K miles.
The air conditioning does not work now.
All of this and barely 5 years old.
The electronic door on the passenger side has had to be repaired.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This review is hogwash. Compared to other Caravans on this site. This is one with the least amount of problems. No tranny failure, serpentine belt slipping. I really don't see why you would'nt buy another?

I side with the reviewer. With only 45k miles on his vehicle he should not be having ANY of the problems described in this review. And SO FAR hasn't had the serpentine belt, tranny probs, etc YET.. wait til there's more miles on the vehicle. And if there is so many other bad reviews on this model why WOULD he buy another one??

I'm pretty sure the OP didn't research this Caravan. Dodge as a whole is a very unreliable company. Sure the designs are nice, but the high cost of ownership just isn't worth the hassle. Caravans have been terrible since birth. Compared to other Caravans on this site, this one is reliable with the problems it has had. A little more research would have saved this buyer a few headaches. No one's fault but the buyers, but hey at least you didn't buy a Windstar.

While some of their designs have been innovative, nobody has time anymore (except maybe retirees) to sit in a dealership waiting for repairs. Chryslers have the highest incidence of Lemon Law cases from state to state. I think it's time for Chrysler to fold up and die. Imagine, Fiat has bought them - talk about a merger of equal losers!
