Chrysler might have invented the modern minivan, but time has marched on, leaving the Dodge Grand Caravan feeling dated and past its prime. Its Chrysler Town & Country twin has been replaced by the new and improved Chrysler Pacifica. The major competitors, the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, are both far better choices. Not that the minivan lack good points.

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.

"very good"

Anonymous, QC (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"The upper glove box door fits poorly and some of the body panels do not line up well. The addition of 80 or so bhp and the extra torque are welcome as wwl as badly needed. I don't care about the styling or mpg. I needed fold flat seats and power...engine and doors. Handling is improved and badly needed."

Thomas C., WI (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"Acceleration was not easy. It was hard and not in the proper place for my body. Jerky when you had to accelerate. Not pleasant to drive."

Bonnie A., TX (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"This is a terrible vehicle. The handling is full The handling is awful And the shifting of the transmission reminds me of a vehicle on it’s last legs. In fact this is how The all new caravans shift. I’m glad that we still have our ancient 2003 grand Caravan because we’re planning on dumping the 2017 piece of junk."

Anonymous, VT (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"Powerful engine and good fuel economy."

Anonymous, AB (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"283 horsepower is fantastic to have when needed; it also makes for a smooth running engine and transmission."

Darren S., ME (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"Cannot climb bridges, slow to accelerate from stops, at speeds over 50 wobbly handling, slight winds make vehicle shift if driving over 65 MPH. When raining hard must pull over because windshield washers smear rain"

Anonymous, LA (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"The vehicle has good acceleration and handles well. The ride is smooth and comfortable."

Richard B., IL (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Very comfortable front seats even in the base model with few adjustments. Rides like a luxury car. I am 64 years old and owned many vehicles in my life. This vehicle is the best running vehicle I ever owned. No problems with it whatsoever."

Martin S., IL (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"The seats are very comfort and they have electric seats to adjust very easily."

Ilene F., FL (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"great for a long trip"

Art W., PA (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"The back up camera is poor. Very small screen and very dark. Hard to see wha's behind and almost useless."

Anonymous, SC (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"I did not plan on or expect leather upholstery...it is fine. The noise is no big deal but the acceleration is very welcome and the anti roll when turning is very much appreciated. The power and heavy duty breaks are also a very welcome addition to the car's updates. This vehicle is now where the Germans were 7 years ago. It's about time. Fit and finish still needs work...but over all welcome improvements throughout."

Thomas C., WI (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"Vans aren't known for a comfortable ride but this one rides smoothly and evenly, handles bumps and dips well and overall is a very nice ride."

Mike B., IL (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"Outstanding comfortable and supporting seats . Very easy to enter and exit vehicle. Extra quiet interior and nice comfortable ride."

Martin S., IL (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"Seats are comfortable. Ride is a little stiff. Noise level is higher because of the wheelchair modifications."

Sharon B., IL (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"Exceptionally comfortable, supportive seats for thighs, 8 way adjustable seat"

Darren S., ME (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"I find the seats the biggest set back in the vehicle. Not very comfortable and find after driving for even 20 minutes my back is arched because of the lack of cushioning. Could use some improvement"

Jessica B., ON (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

Anonymous, VA (2017 Dodge Grand Caravan)

"ok"
