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.

Summary: Potential failure of emergency brake cable on 2005 Chrysler Town and country minivans due to incorrect routing of cable alongside rear suspension link. Detail: I was doing some maintenance on our '05 T&C touring the other day when I noticed that the driver's side emergency brake cable is rubbing on one of the vertical rear suspension links. It has worn through the outer sheath of the cable, and the cable itself has been exposed. That cable is very, very stiff, and it looks like it was routed that way at the factory. I have no idea how I would re-route it to get it away from that suspension link. The problem appears to be a factory defect. Anecdotal evidence in an inquiry at the Chrysler minivan fan club website's forums would indicate other owners have encountered the same problem.

For the second time, our rear right wheel locked up. We had to have it towed to the dealer. When they fixed it, they said it became rusty from sitting. We always use the emergency brake to keep it from rolling and their advice was not to use the emergency brake anymore.
