Town & Country

The air conditioning on our 2003 Town and country does not shut off. I turn off the radio and my heat or air conditioning before exiting my vehicle. As of today, my air conditioning does not shut off on our van unless I turn the vehicle off. I tried to shut it off while parked and all it did was switch to cooling off our feet in the off position. The air is blowing so hard and cool that we all had goosebumps on before we even reached our destination. We have not been able to shut off the rear controls for a while so we just opted not to use it, we should have seen this one coming. So not only do I have my rear air conditioning running, now we have the entire system running all the time, even while it is turned off. All I can say is wow, did we buy a lemon or is this just a poorly made car. Electrical problems, doors don't close, radio doesn't work in the rain, and the gas gauge doesn't even work.

At 60,000 miles, engine is losing coolant. There are no visible signs of leaks. Temperature gauge read hot. Pulled over, let engine cool down, and noticed there was no coolant. Vehicle engine oil was recently changed by walmart. And to my surprise, walmart's best oil change does not require checking coolant. Engine oil was clean and full.

Noise started coming from engine compartment. Water indicator went to hot. Pulled over and car was steaming. After allowing car to cool, checked anti-freeze which was low. Refilled and started car. Anti-freeze was pouring out of coolant tubing at bottom and towards rear of engine. Shut car off. Inspected tubing. Tubing was rusted out. Called dealer and had car towed to dealer. The dealer replaced tubing under warranty ( 40 miles remaining). Dealer also mentioned that 10 cars were brought in for the same problem this week.
