Special Considerations

When shopping for a Dodge Grand Caravan Toronto dealerships can provide even more details specific to the types of standard and optional features available. However, other information would be offered in detail such as fuel economy and warranty. As far as gas mileage, this vehicle gets on average 17 miles per gallon for city driving and up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway. Of course, tire pressure, road conditions, quality and type of fuel, and other factors would have an effect on actual fuel consumption but considering the size of this minivan the numbers are impressive.

The 2013 model of the Grand Caravan comes with several manufacturing warranties such as a Corrosion Perforation Warranty that covers 60 months or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. There is also a Powertrain Warranty, also for 60 months or 100,000 miles, a Basic Warranty for 36 months or 36,000 miles, and even Roadside Assistance Coverage for 60 months or 100,000 miles. On a final note, someone interested in purchasing this type of vehicle should also ask about any warranties the dealership might offer.
