A/C compressor failure - we were on the road for about 1/2 an hour en route from tallahassee to orlando on thanksgiving day, 2006. As we exited onto hwy. 19, we noticed smoke coming from the hood of the car. (later, it was apparent that a belt on the A/C system burned as the compressor locked up.) this was at least the 6th A/C system failure. We had recurring leaks that were "fixed" and recharged numerous times, starting at a macon dealership off I-75 in summer 2003 to a replacement of the rear A/C unit in summer 2006. Last week's compressor failure was the latest in this long series of problems with the A/C, but clearly the most serious as it resulted in considerable smoke and at least the potential for additional damage and danger.

My 2002 and 2001 Town and country"S the rear heater steel tube lines rusted out at the bracket just under the passenger floor in front of the rubber tube connection to the rear aluminum tube lines. There is a recall on the 2005 year but Chrysler will not honor this on 2001-2004 models even though they are the same tubes on the Town and country and the Dodge Caravan for these years. I have a 2001 and a 2002 Town and country plus my sister has a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan with the same problem. I also looked into your other forms for the same problem and there are complaints in 2001,2002,2003, and the recall statement for 2005. This is a common flaw and should be repaired by Chrysler and this part re-engineered and the new style part fully installed on my 2001 and 2002 Town and country's at no cost to me.
