Notes: What the heck happened here? A year after getting our "seal of pretty good" for the 2004, Chrysler turns around and delivers this crapwagon.

This minivan has problems ranging from rack and pinion steering failure to door locks that won't let you out. And trust me, you'll want to get out.

I was informed today by the mechanic at monroe muffler that the frame was rusted so badly that he was able to put his fingers through the frame. There are actually large holes through the frame. The mechanic showed me the holes on the frame (rear right side). The left rear frame was nearly as bad. When Toyota had a frame rust/rot issue on the Tacoma and the Tundra, Toyota either replaced the frame or bought back the vehicle at 1 1/2 times the kbb retail value in excellent condition. I was planning on driving this another few years, however it won't pass nys inspection with the frame rust through. What is Chrysler going to do about this?

The interior rear floor on passenger side gets extremely hot. Seat brackets on floor also get very hot. I've had 4 children burn their feet and hands, also myself. Vehicle was inspected by technician and service director and Chrysler distict manager... all heat shields are in modifications or repairs made.
