2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Purchased new and if not for the poor quality and unreliability of major components I'd love this van.
The only reason I made the purchase was for my two Boxers.
At about 16K miles I took it to the shop because of vibration/wooble in the brakes.
$400+ for new pads and resurfacing all four discs.
Took to shop Friday the 25th for its 20k service.
Been having knocking sound (like bearings) when braking x 2 days.
Sound at left front gets worse the longer its driven.
Call from Service (Newark Chrysler Dodge Jeep):
The Transmission !!!
One of the gears is falling apart.
Still in the shop.
Pricing a Honda Odyssey & getting rid of this POS.
Style, power, handling, utility, fuel economy
Better quality brakes.
Please make it reliable.
I want to buy American, but I'm tired of seeing my hard earned income spent fixing problems that shouldn't exist.
