2017 Dodge Grand Caravan
My foray into minivan territory came as my work vehicle (a 2014 Ford Escape) had to go in for a recall. Sure no problem I said as they told me that the dealer would cover the cost of the rental. But little did I know that I would soon come victim to the inevitable truth that they didn’t add me to the rental list. This in turn gave the rental company a leg up on unloading the never wanted minivan onto me. But I guess that’s my fault for not really fighting for a better vehicle. And in the end I wound up with a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan. Sure I’m not paying for it, but really an Escape for a Caravan, something’s off here.
Well my first day wasn’t the greatest as with any new vehicle you have to get yourself use to it. I know this is me were talking about, someone who can adjust to anything quickly. But as we are smack dab in the middle of winter, this was a bit of challenge for me. For starters, I had to go back a few years to my last front wheel drive vehicle and remember how you handle them in the snow. Sure it didn’t take long for me to figure it out, but without snow tires, the hills were a bit of challenge.
Over the next couple of days I started to notice a few things off with this model. Sure I did have the Grand Caravan which has all of the features (power everything & heated everything), but this didn’t help with my ongoing issues with the van. No I didn’t get a lemon which had mechanical issues, these issues were model issues. The type of issues that all of the Grand Caravans would have. And they were starting to bother me. So what did I do, well I am the owner of AutoLooks.net and thought maybe would should write a full review of this model. Sure ones already been done a thousand times over, but this was an overview from AutoLooks, one which will really hit the minivan on the head.
