The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) today released their interpretation of what happens after crashing the new Dodge Caravan a few times. The results? The newer Caravan gets a "good" for both frontal offset and side impact tests, an improvement over "average" and "poor" performances for the older models. But unlike the new Kia/Hyundai minivans and the new Honda Odyssey, the Caravan only received a "marginal" grade for the rear crash test, the second lowest score. This means that, if you're running around in a new Grand Caravan you should keep your eyes on the rearview mirror. [IIHS via KickingTires]
