Review: 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT.

We were a little less than enthusiastic when a minivan appeared on our review schedule, but the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan makes us seriously question our bias. Sure, it still looks like a minivan, and our smiles and winks at a cute girl in a convertible next to us were laughed off, but it handles and drives well. And to satisfy our tech tendencies, we can push buttons to make doors open and seats fold down. How cool is that?

Better yet, our Grand Caravan came equipped with the MyGig entertainment system, the first chance we've had to test it out. And topping that, we had Sirius satellite TV, which proved to be a very interesting option, although somewhat limited in its implementation. But the Grand Caravan isn't a perfect tech wonderland--the stereo has tinny speakers, and fuel economy isn't wonderful.
