Used Dodge Grand Caravan: In Depth


Model Overview

As one of the first minivans in the United States, the Dodge Caravan has had over 30 years of experience on American highways and neighborhood streets. The Caravan has a long history of innovations such as the first minivan with driver’s side airbags (1991) and dual front airbags (1994). It was the first minivan to ever meet the 1998 U.S. federal safety standards back in 1994. Later models include a driver’s side sliding door, all-wheel drive, and, in the most recent models, foldable Stow ‘N Go second and third-row seats that allow for maximum storage space and seating configuration options. This offers excellent versatility whether your cargo is human, dog, or from the hardware store (but don't put the dog in the storage bins.

The current Grand Caravan comes in four different models, with an MSRP starting at $19,995. If technology and extras excite you then the Grand Caravan is eager to please. It comes equipped with power windows and exterior mirrors, power door locks with remote keyless entry, LED tailgates, audio jack input for mobile devices, and steering wheel mounted audio controls. Some current models include technology upgrades like triple-zone automatic climate control, rear privacy glass, floor console with cup holders (tailgate seating), and an upgraded sound system.

Select models also feature a dual-screen Blu-ray or DVD-based system with 9-inch VGA dual video screens, two wireless infrared headphones, a remote control, an HDMI connection, and two rear USB ports to ensure that even the fussiest of passengers can remain entertained no matter how long the ride.

My husband and I were looking at purchasing a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan with low miles from a private seller. We ordered a CARFAX and it uncovered a possible odometer rollback. Needless to say, as much as we liked the vehicle, we weren't willing to take the risk that there were other issues the seller wasn't telling us about.
