Re: Minivan question

I know Odysseys and Siennas are very popular and really reliable cars, but I wouldn't overlook the Dodge, especially if $ is a factor. We bought our Dodge Grand Caravan new in 2004 (it's an 05 model) and we mainly chose it because dh's employer at the time got Employee Pricing + 2% on Chrysler/Dodge vehicles. I did love the Odyssey but I got a fully loaded Dodge for $24K and we paid cash. We couldn't afford to do that with the Odyssey or Sienna. 8+ years later, I still have the minivan and it's in great shape. We have taken good care of it and don't skip on maintenance. I have about 140K miles on it and I expect it to last a minimum of 2 more years. My goal when buying it was to drive it for 10 years.
