Our belts sips off during wet weather"five times we replaced the "S" belt and the tensioners, waterpump, overheating our 2nd yr of owership.now the 3rd yr of transmissions leaking, the ABS light came on while driving at 35mph w/children in car, starting to brake causing to slow way down in traffic and made a chime sound, the horn went off and it got hot fast causing the car to shut down. Thank god there was room to get over. All the lights were flickering all over the dashboard. The car just leaks everywhere, water, oil, trans. Something needs to be done about these cars. I cant even get mine smog because I have to keep unplugging my battery because now we have a short in the electrical system somewhere. I brought a lemon.....oh yeah! I called the dealer, they cant replace the cruise control unless the ABS light stays on. I hope I don't die cause the airbags wont work because I have a electrical shortage. 2 batteries were replaced, alternator too. The clockspring wont work for my car only the cruise control so said the dealer. I would feel bad selling this car to a family, cause what if they were killed. I couldn't deal with that. The day that happened was on my daughter 16th birthday. I had to stop everywhere all day to put water in the radiator just to keep it cool enough not to ruin her day. I hate hot days, I fear the rainy days, I cant see at night cause my headlights on the left side burned out and the covers has a glass over them.

The vehicle experienced the same defect with the clock spring as stated in recall number 02V 293 000 but the model year and vehicle identification number were not included. An electrical short started and was replaced per mechanic. The horn stopped working due to the air bag. The consumer was informed the same part malfunctioned in the 1996, 97, and 98 Dodge Caravan's.

Seal around windshield is leaking, causing electrical shorts in vehicle. Dealer cannot remedy the problem. The water drops onto the computer control and causes all instruments to work irradically on the dash board. Consumer feels the main controls should be shielded from windshield leaks. Also, the headlights and tail lights went out.
