This more-costly cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan is pleasant enough, but it is falling behind the competition, especially from Honda and Toyota. Interior flexibility got a boost with the introduction of the 2005 model, which has flat-folding second- and third-row seats. This setup eliminates the AWD model. The minivan rides well enough with a light load and handles securely. Interior noise has become more pronounced. The 3.8-liter V6 isn't as smooth, quiet, or fuel-efficient as the engines in the Odyssey and Sienna. The offset-crash-test result is less impressive.
