2014 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3.8 V6 from North America

Summary:

Good value for the money

Faults:

Front brake rotors were warped when picked up.

Transmission front fluid pump went out at 61,000 miles.

Transmission rebuilt by the dealer under warranty.

General Comments:

This Grand Caravan is the All American package that is a pretty basic van. It does have the stow and go seats.

So far the van has been very reliable. The transmission pump was the only major problem so far. The van handles very well and the 3.8 V6 is much quicker than the 3.3 V6 in my older van.

Have made several long trips with this van. The front seats are stiff, but OK for long distance driving. The middle seats are just not very comfortable. I wish there was more leg room for the driver (I'm 6 foot 3 inches).

The stow and go is great for hauling cargo, and the hidden compartments in the floor when the seats are up are a big help.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Even if it cost you nothing to fix, I wouldn't think that a transmission rebuild at ~60k bodes well for long-term reliability.
