Bad brake design
By alflaggs on


2010 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


The rear brakes on my 2010 Caravan do not release properly and the brakes wear down in less than 25,000 miles.
It is in need of a second set of rotors, pads, and calipers on the rear AGAIN.
Looking online, I find this a very common problem...I think because of the poor design.
On almost all cars, the braking force goes 70% to the front, 30% to the rear.
The 2010 Caravan is designed for 50/50 braking and that seems to be too much to the rear brakes.
In addition, the rear calipers do not seem to release fully when the brakes are let off.
Chrysler really needs to address this problem since it is causing premature brake failure.

Worst Features

Reduce braking pressure to the rear wheels. Maybe a smaller caliper piston would be an easy fix?
