2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


I wanted to buy American. Have always had a Toyota.

Bought this van from the Dodge Dealership used with 58k miles.
Since I've had it, (1 1/2 yrs) new brakes, AC
hose leaked.
AC, radiator cap leak, front wheel bearings, door latch could cause fire, Air bags could disengage.
Now the transmission needs to be replaced with 64K miles. Cost 4,500-5,500 to replace.
Was told by the dealership the transmission has not been a problem on other 2008 vans.
Really! No Thanks!
Trading it in on a Toyota as soon as possible!
I really expected more from Dodge.

Same thing is happening to us now. Did you end up fixing it with dodge and trading in?
