This more expensive cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan is pleasant enough but is falling behind the competition 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, but noise levels increased. This setup eliminates the AWD model. The minivan rides well with a light load and handles securely.

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Model Summary
This more expensive cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan is pleasant enough but is falling behind the competition 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, but noise levels increased. This setup eliminates the AWD model. The minivan rides well with a light load and handles securely. The 3.8-liter V6 engine isn't as smooth, quiet, or fuel efficient as the engines in the Odyssey and Sienna. IIHS offset and side crash-test results are unimpressive.
