2003 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
In July of 2004 I wrote a review with concerns whether Dodge had cured it's tranny problems and I was experiencing tranny shudder and slipping into a false neutral. This was at 29,000 miles. At 35,000 I had the fluid changed and then at 44,000 they had to do a major rebuild on the tranny and replace the torque converter, now 14,000 miles later the same problem is here again. Do I attribute this to a lousy transmission that was to be upgraded and now reliable for 2003 or a mechanic that doesn't know what he's doing. They will have to rebuild it again now at 58,000 miles and one wonders if it'll be another rebuild just before the warranty expires or do I dump it! Unfortunately, Adios Dodge
