When it was released, critics said the Dodge Caravan offers good looks, decent ride and handling, good visibility and a durable interior, and recognized this model as among the most affordable of minivans. The Caravan's Stow n Go seats -- which fold flat into the floor -- were a highlight for many.
Most sources agreed that the Dodge Caravan just isn't as attractive as the class-leading Honda Odyssey, and the competing Kia Sedona got better reviews as a budget minivan. The lack of a stability control system or full-length side-curtain airbags on base models meant that crash-test scores for '07 Caravans are unimpressive. Long-term reliability appears to be below average.
