We always had Dodge Caravan as our family car.
It is a great car, very comfortable seats 7 people. There is also plenty of room for the luggage especially if the last seats are removed.
It is perfect for both, long and short trips.
On certain minivans equipped with a 3.3L or 3.8L engine, the upper power steering cooler hose could split, causing a fluid leak. Power steering fluid leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in an underhood fire. Correction: Dealers will replace the upper power steering hose.
