The Dodge Caravan continues to be one of the top choices for minivans along with the Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna. Customers like the Caravan because of its family-friendly features such as the Stow n' Go seating system which allows the 2nd row seats to fold down into the floor, maximizing cargo space. Its comfortable interior design, and affordable price tag make it appealing to consumers on a budget.
Unfortunately, the Dodge Caravans are prone to transmission problems, and, when compared to their competition, many customers have trouble rating the Caravan as a reliable vehicle when it comes to servicing and repairs. Transmission issues range from problems shifting from 1st into 2nd gear, or getting stuck in 2nd gear which is referred to as "limp in mode". These types of problems, along with control module issues, are more frequent as the number of miles on the car increases.
