Took vehicle to the dealer for crunching noise while braking which was coming from the front of the vehicle and because the steering wheel was shaking & the brake pedal was pulsating during braking. Dealer was unable to find anything wrong with the front & said that the rear brakes and rotors needed to be replaced. This was at approximately 19,600 miles and supposedly not covered under any of the warranties that we have and we have them all. This doesn't seem right at all. I've never had a car which needed rotors to be replace within the first 2 years of ownership. This seems like a quality issue.

Rear brake pads worn and rear rotors found to be out of round.Chrysler extended warranty on front brakes to 3 years or 36,000 miles. My front brake pads and rotors were replaced at 17,843 miles by Chrysler for a $50 doller deductible, but was told about rear brake problem also. My question is, most of the braking is done by the front brakes I think the rear brakes were compromised due to front brake failure. I was charged for rear rotors to be resurfaced and pads replaced. I think when this occurs at the same milage, Chrysler should make good for both front and rear brakes.

The brake started to shake/vibrate severely at free way esp. When going down hills. Had to stop braking. This is a safety issue that Chrysler should send a recall. I just read many of similar concerns on the same model.

My van vibrates when I press on my brakes if I am going over 25 mph. Took my van in for service Oct. 13 dealership told me my rotors were bad this was at 20,000 + miles and they needed to be turned. Then approx. Nov 15 we received a letter from Chrysler about the brakes and rotors being defective and we had an extension on the warranty, but had to pay a $50 ded. I took the van in on November 16 and the pads and rotors replaced. My van still vibrated after this. Today November 25 we took the van back to the dealership and they replaced the rotors again and said there is still a vibration but it seems to be coming from the rear. It does feel a less intense and not as bad in the steering wheel. They wanted for us to pay to have the rotors turned on the back. I believe there is an issues with the rotors all around on this vehicle. I am not about to pay as much for this van as we did and at the mileage we have on it which is just at 22000 today have to pay to do a thing with the brakes we already paid $50 deductible for bad rotors once. I believe in supporting american companies but I am ready to trade this one in for a Honda or Toyota.

I have just read way too many identical complaints. I bought the high end model and at 17000 or possibly before we noticed the brakes would pulsate at even low miles especially after the vehicle would be driven a while. I took it into the dealership where they informed me the same as everyone else that the front rotors were warped and needed replaced or turned. They were only covered for 12K miles...and would not cover. This vehicle goes no where...I have a stay at home wife who might put 15-20 miles a day on average on this vehicle. I took it in an had the rotors turned and new pads put on....the brakes acted up the same day I picked up the van. "really"..... a 40K van and the braking system has major issues. How is this problem not being recalled!!
