I have replaced the front brakes 3 times it only has 48,000 miles. This last time they lasted 6,000 miles. They devolep blue heat spots on the rotors. The repair shop said when Dodge took weight out of the front end they decreased the size of rotors. I have replaced the outer tierod twice. The repair shop stated Dodge reducing the weight in front end.

There is premature wearing of brakes and rotors. If you go to this website you will see haw many people are having problems with the Dodge (grand) Caravan and Caravan brakes. It is horrendous. You can see this at www.carcomplaints.com/Dodge/Caravan/2005/brakes/brake_pads_wear_out_prematurely.shtml these should be recalled and people should get their money back. It is ridiculous I should have to get new brakes and rotors so soon in my vehicle. It only has 50K on it.
