    We have owned 3 Dodge Caravans and have enjoyed all three. But again the V6 Pentair 3.6 with 6 speed transmission has been the best set up. Great performance all around. When needed to pass and have the extra safety need at times it has it. We have had the other set up of lower power in past years and at times we found it was not enough. Plus we want to pull a small RV trailer at times the small engine will not work or be not Safe when the extra power is needed.

    For those of us with dogs and crates I hate to have the roof lowered. I need a useful minivan not pretty. The Pacifica has that ugly back that is so common now. Can’t see out the back windows and hard to fit things in because it narrows.
