2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Ext Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
Managing a fleet of 500 vehicles and have about 100 Grand Caravans. Good practical vehicles but mechanical nightmares. Replaced 10 rack and pinion units in the last 2 years and many, many tie rods. Electrical issues are common as well. Primarily in the column and the multi-function switches. Beware, the new models (2008 or newer) use a new key system that will set you back over $100 to replace.
Honor longer warranty or reimburse for known flaws such as rack and pinion, tie rods, and electrical failures.
