2013 Dodge Grand Caravan Problems

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.

A problem with the sliding door track and door stops can allow the door to slide out of the track and fall off the vehicle. This is more common when doors are opened fast and allowed to hit the stops with a lot of force.

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan Questions

my Caravan was idling in park. I tripped and leaned on the van for support near the trunk area. I couldn't stop it and I was knocked down and the van rolled over my leg. The shop reports no problems with the braking system. It may be 2014 model.

How can I get my third row seats back up? They are stuck in the folded stow position.

My van stumbles when I try to maintain a speed of around 25 mph when traveling up hill. It is not a shudder, more of a hestitation and then stumbles. IF I reduce the speed or step on the gas everything is fine. Anyone else have this problem ?

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan Recalls

The occupant restraint control module monitors vehicle occupant and crash data to determine which airbags to deploy when necessary. A software error may result in the airbags deploying from the opposite the side of impact (a left side impact would deploy the right side airbags and vice versa). This would leave the occupant at the point of impact with no protection, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the occupant restraint control module to correct this concern.

The incorrect software may have been installed in the occupant restraint control module (ORC). As a result, the airbags may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash. Improperly deployed airbags can increase the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the ORC module as necessary to correct this concern.
