Dodge Grand Caravan Problems

Underbody Coolant Leaks From Rear Heat/AC Are Common

Coolant leaks coming from the underbody on vehicles equipped with rear heat/AC are common. The underbody hoses should be inspected as part of regular maintenance. If you drive on roads where salt is prevalent the problem is generally more severe. Some 2005 models are involved in a special service action, no government recall was issued.

Silding Door May Fall Off Track

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.

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.

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.

Windshield Separates From Vehicle During Crash

The windshield may have been installed using expired primer for the urethane adhesive, and may not be sufficiently secure to the vehicle body. In an accident, it could dislodge and increase risk of occupant injury. Dealers will replace the windshield free of charge to resolve the concern.

Hood Opens While Driving

The hood latch striker bolts may loosen and allow the hood to open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will install new hood striker bolts with the proper torque free of charge to resolve the concern.
