The Car Connection's Take

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. If you like what minivans provide but don’t appreciate the looks of most of them, you might still keep the 2009 Nissan Quest on your shopping list.
