I am planning to buy either an 08 Dodge Caravan SXT or the Chrysler
T&C Limited with the 4 liter/6 speed auto option. Going with that
choice in the Dodge, it automatically specs something called the "EURO
Suspension". I don't see that option with the T&C. They are both the
long wheelbase. I am including the trailer tow package as a
requirement regardless of which I go with.. This new vehicle will
replace our '97 Caravan ES short wheelbase.
Can anyone tell me what the "Euro suspension" is and how it would
compare with the Chrysler ride.
The folks at dodge.com online chat don't have the information
available to them. It's really a toss up between the two vehicles, so
if one is a better ride it could influence my choice.
There are only two in the car at a time.
We do have a power chair lift that is mounted in the3rd row seat area
(chair access uses the tailgate entrance). It bolts to the 3rd row
seat anchors. The lift and chair are inside the van approximately over
the rear axle.
Suspension loads based on who's going:
1. 1 adult with power chair lift inside van (lift weight 150 lbs).
2. 2 adults with power chair lift and power chair inside van.
(combined lift & power chair weight is about 370 lbs).
Thanks in advance for any information on the differences in
suspensions and suggestions as to which would be appropriate.
