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.

The contact had a problem with the malfunctioned light coming on. She called the dealership and the rmps revved. She was afraid to drive. She had the vehicle towed to dealer. On 9-12-05 they told her the van was ready. They said what was wrong with the car was not under warranty, but they were not going to charge her for it. The dealership told her that the wiring harness had been cut. The dealer told her they had spliced the wires. The consumer talked to someone she knew who worked for Honda, and this person said there was no way the wires were cut while driving the car, the wires had to be that way when the car was manufactured.
