    Kitcha I would stay away from a certain dealer you have been to on the GNR. Many problems from them with a lot of people I know. If you have any ?'s about this PM me.

    And I think the difference between the Grand Caravan, and Grand Caravan Sport, is just like a body moulding added here or there, .. 2nd'ly, it might be the fact that i have the temperature gauge thing in my van at the top.. ??
    I'm pretty sure it's something like that..

    It is not bad considering it carts 5 of us around most times.. ITS a club cab and ITS a V8...... and that is city driving..

    P.s We just filled up today across the river it was 36.68 and that was 427 km that tank..... I do admit if I did not tromp on it or let my other half drive it LOL it would prob go farther.. and

    I also let the truck Idle time of 15 mins before we go anywhere these last few weeks cause its so frigen cold out.

    i really like that durango we looked at, perfect for size, interior room and it has what hubby wants for towing and off road. the gas scares me, i did some more looking at reviews on the internet and seems there are lots of gas comments. damn!!! do you think any vehicle that size is going to be the same or is it just the dakota and durango that are worse? thx.

    My parents 1974 24' Winnebago with a 454 4bbl got almost as good as gas mileage as that.

    You can do better!
