The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is loaded with practical features that families on the go will use and appreciate, but it’s not the most luxurious minivan out there. Of the available minivans, the 2009 Kia Sedona is one of the most affordable, but it doesn't skimp on what counts for families.
