2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan

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.

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

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.

Had a diagnostic check and it won't communicate with the and system.

Humming noise for about 1/4 mile then off and on for another 5 miles. I thought it was loud tire noise. Wheel smelled hot when I got in my garage and very hot to touch. Today on the way in to work it did not occur. What should I suggest to my repair man?
