2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Problems

Shifting Harshness and Shuddering Issue

Shifting harshness and shuddering issues related to the operation of the automatic transmission have been addressed by factory service bulletins. The shuddering can feel like the vehicle is being driven over rumble strips.

Noise in Front Suspension Due to Worn Sway Bar Bushings/End Links

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

Braking Ability May be Compromised

A defective anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump and/or leaking piston seals in the master cylinder can cause excessive pedal effort, lack of stopping power, and abnormal pump noise. Diagnoses will be required to determine the root cause of any braking issues and the component(s) that will require replacement.

2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Recalls

Air Bags May Not Deploy In An Accident

The vehicle's air bags may not deploy as needed in an accident, resulting in increased risk of occupant injury. Additionally, the air bags could deploy inadvertently without an accident, causing loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the air bag control unit free of charge to resolve the concern.

Ignition Switch Concern

If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.

Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Rear Axle Cracks And Fails

On vehicles modified for wheelchair accessibility by Freedom Motors Incorporated, the rear axle may crack and fail. Dealers will replace the affected axles free of charge to resolve the problem.

Wouldn't not purchase another Chrysler my headliner is leaking and Dodge nor Chrysler want even reimbursement me. I hate this van and tell everyone on experience had with Chrysler. I had other problems with doors, engine, brakes, fluids and bearings. This van is a lemon I will be looking at Toyota next for the family minivan.
08 Dodge Grand Caravan. Purchased at the end of 07. Many problems. Poorly built. It's been in the shop many times. We even had to write to Dodge for reimbursement b/c the repairs on a new van were so outrageous and ridiculous. It took a long time and many, many calls with long hold times. But we finally got them to pay for 1/2 the repairs. Now, it's 2010. Radiator problems. Part only dealer sol...
