2008 Dodge Grand Caravan: Brake Service, Round 2
September 25, 2008
Thereit is. Ourlong-term Dodge Caravan parked in the shadows of the service drive at Cerritos Dodge. It'sour 4thvisit to this dealership since June.Afterthe 5thvisit we get our choice of an Avenger keychain or Caliber beer cozy.
This isn't the first time we've been here forabnormally noisy brakes. Last round the dealer machinedourpittedrotors and the brake squealvanished. For awhile. This time the front padsand rotors willbe replaced altogether.
New rotorsshipped herefrom back east, which tookfour days.So theCaravan sat waiting patiently on the dealer lotfrom Wednesday to Monday.We pickedup a freshly washed Caravan Monday afternoon, and toour surprisewere not charged for the service.
