Poor Quality From Dodge

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Ext Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


There's a reason why GM and Chrysler are in economic trouble. My 2005 Grand Caravan sums it up. 1. Tie rods failed at 31000 miles, not covered by warranty, $350 cost. 2. Tie rods failed again at 68000 miles, $350 cost. 3. At 55000 miles fluid started leaking into rack and pinion boots. Caused engine (transmission?) to sound aweful. Replaced rack and pinion parts. $950 cost. 4. At 43,000 heating coil fried and had to be replaced. $250 cost. 5. Car has been recalled/inspected/fixed 4 or 5 times. 6. Dealer has 15K, 30K, 45K, and 60K mileage service plans, priced at 225, 400, 550, 700. Who pays that kind of money for routine service? A Joke compared to my past Toyota or Honda!

Best Features

Sto and Go Seating.

Worst Features

Where do they start? So many issues. Reduce service costs on routine maintanance. Redesign tie rods, electrical system, rack and pinion, and all the other known failures that crop up in 75% of their cars.
