#2 of 11 questions about 2011 Grand caravan
Sep 25, 2011 (1:32 pm)
I have interest in 2011 Grand caravan. Several pros: Cheap, exterior look awesome compared with Ody and Sienna. But I heard that there were some horrible problems with this van like crazy electronical issues and sudden stalling when driving. Anybody know if these problems have been fixed or not in 2011 model? Besides, do they still have some other issues?Thanks.

This is a hugh disappointment to me and my wife. We are 56 years old and this is our very first new vehicle..we have had five used caravans throughout the years and any of them would score over this one.Rough rear suspension, loud engine noise, rattling slide door, cabin crunching,not real stable on high speed,much harder on fuel than the others,minor bucking occuring now at just 3k.....dont be disappointed

What does your age have to do with anything? My wife and I are only a year younger than you and we both prize handling over a soft cushy ride any day. We're considering our fourth minivan and recently test-drove a new 2011 T&C and love how it rides and prefer it to any of our previous three (all of which had the up-rated suspension). Go figure.

this forum is about 2011 dodge caravan.....chrysler town & country is a different vehicle as well as a much more expensive vehicle.

Bzzzt! I'm sorry, that is incorrect; they are basically identical vehicles from the ground up.

An age difference of one year? Does that mean I'm going to be trading in my sporty little daily driver with a stick-shift for a plush boulevard cruiser next year?

I bought a new 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan in August. 6,000 kms later I'm still quite satisfied with this vehicle! It has the stow n go seating but other than that it is pretty basic. I get 12-13 ltrs/100 kms (23 mpg) and as low as 8.4 ltrs/100 kms (33) on the hwy. I just had my first oil change which was no charge. I have only good things to say about this vehicle! So versatile & powerful! I'll be reporting in as the vehicle ages. I'm 63 with 5 children & soon to be 8th grandchild, so this vehicle is just the ticket for my needs!
#10 of 11 Replacement Tires
Dec 06, 2011 (1:58 pm)
My 2011 Grand Caravan came equipped with Yokohama 225 65R 16 tires. I've been told these tires aren't the best quality for this vehicle. So my question is, what would be a good replacement tire?
Also, my dealer recommends servicing the brakes every 12-15,000 kms $139 per pop. Is this necessary/worth it?

My 2011 grand caravan got crazy!!!! The wipers begun to move and was impossible to stop them, while the lights and audio didnt work at all!!
went to Chrysler and they want to charge 1,300 dollars to fix it saying that it's the instrumental cluster!
They claim that need 6hours to do that!!!!
Please! is anybody there to help me? should I accept it? THANK YOU!
