Chrysler might have invented the modern minivan, but time has marched on, leaving the Dodge Grand Caravan feeling dated and past its prime. At least the GC’s ride is very comfortable and settled, and passengers will find a quiet, well-equipped cabin that offers considerable versatility. Both the second- and third-row seats can fold away into the floor, a big convenience for times you need to maximize cargo space.

    Overall Owner Satisfaction

    Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

    John A., NY (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    Anonymous, SK (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    John B., IA (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    Gregory B., OH (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)


    Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

    What Owners Say

    "It is very roomy and comfortable in all three rows."

    Jay M., NY (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "The seats are ok but not extremely comfortable. The ride is like a truck ride. During cross country trips is annoying. The noise is average."

    Kathleen S., IL (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "The road noise is very annoying, mostly because this is a handicapped accessible side ramp-van customized with a lowered floor (by BraunAbility). The front seats are fairly good, but one gets the feeling of traveling faster than the actual speed, partly due to the noise level."

    Anonymous, TX (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Comfort is fine but noise and rattles are awful."

    Arthur L., FL (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "The seats have an awkward forward tilt for the head rests (no way to adjust). The rear seats in particular are extremely uncomfortable. The overall quality of the interior is cheap, in particular the leather. The noise is extremely loud while driving. This is a Braun conversion van, so I do not know how much is due to this fact."

    Anonymous, VA (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Seats are comfortable and the ride is very smooth, but there's a lot of road noise, especially around the sliding doors."

    Anna B., IN (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Seats very comfortable and height good. Drives like a car. Very quiet"

    Gregory B., OH (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Not a bad ride, but but lots of road noise."

    Daniel S., NJ (2011 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
