- Great looks for a mini van
- Motor trend complained about the brakes.
Purchased As Not Purchased
I've been waiting for Dodge to upgrade the brakes before trading in our Montana. I love the new looks of the R/T, but didn't see any news about them updating the brakes. We have a SUV, a Mini-Van, and a Mustang. The mini-van is used more than anything. Much more useful than the SUV, easier to get in and out, and better fuel mileage....read morehide

- Excellent versatility, engine performance, value, and comfort
- Will have to wait and see on reliability
Purchased As New
I would have purchased one of the previous models (2008 - 2010) but I did not like the questionable reliability and interior quality. However, the interior on the 2011 is greatly improved, and the performance of the Pentastar 6 cylinder and 6 speed automatic are excellent. We also really enjoy all the convenience features built into the interior, as well as the new dashboard and stow and go seating. So far, it's been excellent.
In terms of reliability, we will have to wait and see. I know they had addressed many of the past concerns by 2010 but you never know. It is comforting to know we have a long warranty from the factory though. Also, when you consider the reliability of the Honda minivans you will see that they have had issues as well surprisingly.
In summary, we are very happy so far especially considering the value and level of features for the price. We are off to a great start and hope this wonderful vehicle is with us for many years!...read morehide

It just makes more and more sense to buy the best minvan on the market and that is the Dodge Grand Caravan! Think about it before you buy your next van! I can testify to its road worthiness, as I have now attained 15,000 miles on it without any hicups or problems. I am not worried one bit, because it's got the 5years/100,000 mile warranty which I can rely on year after year. Its a great minivan in looks, riding comfort, power to spare on passing and lots of features that I like that others don't carry!
The six speed tranny shifts smoothly and by shifting down going down mountains it hold the van back pretty well. Got the Satellite radio that makes long trips enjoyable. I like the body style and the comfortable ride. This van handles like a car with quick manuevers and very good suspension. The stow and go is fantastic for this minivan, to take in loads and stuff, without the trouble of carrying the seats out. Dual air flow controls, great storage areas in the floor boards (if seats not stored) and the sense of sitting up high enough to see past most vehicles. Dual-screen DVD player that mounted behind the front seats headrests are a must for kids to be entertained during long trips. I love the stability control and traction control here in the the snow and ice, keeps the van straight. Remote start is a necessity here in winter country to warm the van up and inside too. The back-up camera is an absolute importance for us in parallel parking which makes it easy and safe. The 30 gig hard drive for CDs is great plus navigation system where I cannot get lost and excuse myself for being late to my wife.
Lastly, having said all that, Honda and Toyota trails Dodge and Chrysler in the minivan race and will need extra catching up to do it!!!
Being the pioneer and the leader the past 30 years in minivan, Toyota, Honda and Nissan needs to copy the success of Dodge to even equal it, but cannot surpass its innovation! That's what is great about being the leader!!!!!!!...read morehide
