VLT Transmission problems
By willie Hodess on
2007 Dodge Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
Driving and comfort not an issue, the caravan performs. It's the transmission thats driving me crazy. When slowing down the tranny is trying to downshift 2nd to 1st is a real pain. The clunking or grabbing is a real nuisance. What's worse is Wellington motors is denying that Chrysler had issues with this tranny and still is selling these vans. Chrysler Canada aside from trying to give me $50 gift certs.keeps telling me their engineers are looking into it. I have been told that the fix would be there early Aug.2007 that was moved out to the end of Sept to the new year and now I havent heard from anyone.
Outside of the tranny issue i find the van performs great. rear seats removal is a big improvement from the last van I had which was a 1999.
The VLT transmission. Better front windshield defrosting system. Too much ice build up on the windshield wipers.
