Chrysler might have invented the modern minivan, but time has marched on, leaving the Dodge Grand Caravan feeling dated and past its prime. Their major competitors, the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, are both far better choices. Not that these minivans lack good points. The ride is very comfortable and settled, and passengers will find a quiet, well-equipped cabin that offers considerable versatility.

    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.

    Includes acceleration and handling

    What Owners Say

    "handles well, acceleration is more than adequate. Braking is good"

    Anonymous, OH (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Great handling and acceleration. Feels like a car."

    Christopher B., VA (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "My van includes a BraunAbility conversion with a transfer seat in the driver's position. This Dodge van handles very well and I never have to worry about a lack of power, braking or maneuverability to drive safely in spite of my handicap."

    Anonymous, PA (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "This vehicle's muffler is very loud--especially when you have to accelerate and go up a hill. We feel like we have to get a running start to make it up some of the hills. EVERYBODY can hear us coming."

    Anonymous, VT (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "very smooth"

    Anonymous, ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "3.6 cc engine has great power and acceleration are very good"

    Anonymous, ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Acceleration really surprising for such a cheap vehicle. One tester rated the old viper the worst handling another said it was the best they had driven. A lot of personal interpretation. Great handling for what you are paying."

    Tim C., ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "slight lag in acceleration, then you get too much low end torque and end up spinning the tires even on clear dry pavement even using "eco: mode."

    M M., OH (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Very good acceleration -- can get up to highway speeds quickly. Handles well."

    Anonymous, ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "acceleration is overall rough,(especially when transmission changes gears), gas milage is not good,(about 17/19mpg).."

    Luz R., NY (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "I am pleasantly surprised with the acceleration of this vehicle, especially passing. For a vehicle the size of this van, the handling is very good and the back-up camera really assists in parking and backing-up"

    Fritz F., MI (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Slow acceleration. Handles well if already moving fast. Doesn't like hills. Handles curves well."

    Anonymous, MD (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "It is very easy to drive. The steering is wonderful as is the acceleration. There is plenty of power to pass vehicles quickly and easily."

    Sharon B., IL (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "When I first got the car I was very unhappy with what I believed to be a problem with the car feeling like it was going to stall. I had other 's drive it and they said it was okay, but a lot of highway driving made me very nervous it would stall, It seemed to dissipate for a while , but does surface . Frankly Chrysler was not my choice. The deal with the no perks, made it hard to decline, and the perks were fine for me, but I did miss the back up warning,"

    Sandra M., ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)


    Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

    What Owners Say

    "Seats are very comfortable in front the rear two benches are okay for short rides. The van is very noisy, road noise."

    Anonymous, WA (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "comfortable seats, noisy ride especially on concrete, still riding fairly smooth,"

    Luz R., NY (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "I bought this vehicle because the seats were cloth and very comfortable. It rides very well. We just recently took it West on a 5000 mile trip. We were comfortable the whole time."

    Sharon B., IL (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Passenger seat cannot be tilted down, Overall noise level could be less"

    Anonymous, OR (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "the noise level seams rather loud."

    Anonymous, MI (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Very comfortable seat and ride. Noise could be a little quieter, but still satisfactory. 8-way power seat easy to adjust."

    Christopher B., VA (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Seats have more padding then my former 2013 Grand Caravan although I would like more room since I'm a Big and tall Driver."

    Roger V., MI (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Very comfortable seats. Everyone who sits in this van likes the seats"

    Anonymous, OH (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "There is a slight noise that nobody has been able to fix, either the dealer or the garage where we do our maintenance."

    Anonymous, ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Very similar in comfort to our 2008 Grand Caravan. Acceleration is poor, struggles going up a hill with a full load. Plastic interior parts have fallen off on seats. Didn't have the latter problem with the 2008, obviously made cheaper than the 2008."

    Anonymous, MD (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "The seats are comfortable except they are curved on the sides and that can cause your arms to hurt on a long ride. The car is average in quietness but the ride is comfortable."

    Anonymous, AR (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "very comfortable seats the ride is very smooth & fast"

    Anonymous, ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Front seats are okay, but not great. Middle and rear seating is for children only. The seats are too narrow and do not have enough padding. Perhaps that is the trade-off for having stow-and-go seating. I like the ability to fold away the seats, but I don't like the seats themselves."

    Daniel S., NC (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "The front seats are very comfortable. The visibility from the front seats is outstanding."

    Virginia S., NY (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Not enough seat travel away from wheel. Noise level and clunking in rear suspension. Unsettled ride"

    Anonymous, VA (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "No way to get comfortable, even with 8 way seat adjustment. Ambient noise is terrible at highway speeds, if you increase the sound on the radio it just adds to the cacophony."

    M M., OH (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Driver's seat has all the adjustments, would like same for passenger"

    Anonymous, ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "A pleasure to drive"

    Robert B., MA (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Seven passenger vehicle for the money. Hard to beat overall value. Four by eight sheets of plywood fit in the back"

    Tim C., ON (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)

    "Value for Dodge Grand Caravan is the best due to only van that has stow and go that allows vehicle to conform to several configuration options to allow transporting people as well as cargo."

    Anonymous, IN (2016 Dodge Grand Caravan)
