2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Rear Entry Handicap Ramp Mobility Van
Vehicle is in excellent condition with Low Mileage
Up for auction is our personal vehicle - this is not a business, nor am I someone who purchased this van to "flip" it for a profit - something that is becoming all too common these days. We purchased this van from the original owner a few years ago to transport our handicapped son. This van has been a god send - really. We had a side entry van before this one and time after time had difficulty finding a suitable handicap parking spot due to the ridiculously liberal policies for handing out the passes to people who clearly can walk the extra few feet, but that is a discussion for another time. Having a rear entry vehicle for his power wheelchair that allowed us to park in any spot has changed our lives - and his. With this van we could take him anywhere without concern as to where we had room to park.
The van is loaded - what it didn't have, we added so that we could take trips to family out of state and take him to his doctors both in and out of state, and have his two sisters come along and ride comfortably.
The van is equipped with:
*Front and rear bucket seats ( 4 in total) that are in perfect shape - no stains, rips or marks - very nice shape!
Vehicle can handle (4) people plus the wheelchair - so 5 total
*Rear Wheelchair Entry Ramp Conversion, with 4 point Q-Straint ratchet straps. The two front straps are fixed and the two rear straps can be located in various positions depending upon the size and position of the chair.
The Rear ramp is 33" wide, Lightweight to handle and operate while being very robust for the heaviest of chairs ( my son's chair is very large and it handles him and it with ease) and is maintenance free!
* Front and Rear A/C, which blows nice and cold, and has separate rear controls for the rear passengers
* Power Windows
* Cruise Control
*In Dash DVD / CD AM/FM radio, which is tied into rear headrest mounted video screens for the rear passengers - your front passenger can watch as well as the rear and you can control the operation from up front so no need to reach behind you while driving!
The body and paint are nearly perfect - I keep the van clean inside and out. I am an ASE Master Mechanic, so everything I own and drive is kept in top shape, and I don't take chances with my family
There is one (1) scratch on the body where someone was so nice as to smack their door into mine in a parking lot. Luckily it hit the passenger rear door handle so it just made a small chip - no dents or dings anywhere, it shines like new.
The interior is as close to new as you can get - no stains, rips, cracks - nothing.
Mechanically the van is also in mint shape - it has low miles - just 73,520, and I have addressed every regular maintenance item as well as every common issue with the Dodge Caravan such as:
New high output alternator about 6 months ago
New battery about 6 months ago
New Front and Rear brakes about 5,000 miles ago
New serpentine belt and belt tensioner about 6 months ago
New radiator about 3,000 miles ago
New valve cover gaskets about 6,000 miles ago
New airconditioning condenser about 6,000 miles ago
New electric fans (2) last year - about 8,000 miles ago
New shocks front - about 10,000 miles ago
New Rear HD coil over shocks about 8,000 miles ago
I use Mobil 1 synthetic oil religiously and change the oil every 3,000 miles or 6 months - whichever comes first.
I also change the filter at every oil change, and the air filter once a year.
As you can see - this van is loaded, in mint shape and needs nothing to get out and help you get that special person in your life mobile again, and with the best possible way to load a wheel chair.
Oh and it gets good gas mileage too
So, why are we selling - we have just outgrown it.
We are looking to relocate down south and have some trips planned to look at houses etc..
Our son has grown quite a bit since we first purchased the van, as well as our family. It kills me to sell the van but we need to move onto a full size van that can carry our whole family, and all of his medical gear and our luggage for long trips on the road.
I just purchased a rear entry full size GMC van with a HD rear lift. The new van is not going to be as easy to park as the Caravan but it is what it is and we have to move on.
You wont be disappointed. I encourage anyone who is interested to come, look the vehicle over and take it for a ride.
