I've lost 4 serpentine belts in less than a years time owning this vehicle.I've been informed there is a new pulley system with a double sided belt for this van,but no recalls.

    there is a kit from chrysler that does not allow the rain to get up there and knock off the belt.
    also, the tensioner should also be replaced.
