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 purchased a pair of rain-X 28 latitude wipers for a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country minivan in November of 2008 from walmart at the cost of $18.97 each. I had been pleased with their performance. On the 8th of July when I turned the window wipers on during a severe rainstorm, the passenger side wiper flew off. The preinstalled connector came out and I could not find it. I stopped at the walmart store where it was purchased in East tawas, Michigan to see if there was either a guarantee or some way I could get another connector. I was told by the auto dept. Manager on duty that there was no guarantee and that the wiper should be replaced every 6 months anyway and there was no way to get another connector. The Town & Country is a 2nd vehicle and little used. It had less than 3000 miles on it since November when the blades were replaced. It is always garaged. There is no sign of wear on the driver"S side blade and both blades wiped clean until this incident. I had to purchase a new blade, but would like to know how a blade that is advertised for winter, spring/fall, and summer has to be replaced every 6 months when not worn. I realize that the durability and longevity is dependent upon usage, but this seems a little extreme to me. I have never replaced blades that often and have never paid that much for blades before so I expect these blades to last longer and from the condition of the driver"S side blade it looks like they will. It is not my fault that the preinstalled connector fell out. I do not know whether it broke or not however, I view this as a serious safety hazard. If this had happened to the drivers side wiper, it could have caused an accident.

We rented a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country (it may have been a Dodge garnd Caravan, but they are the same) from dollar rent a car in austin tx. We were driving down I-35 about 20 miles North of austin, southbound. It was raining moderately and we drove in some standing water in the left lane. The water was thrown from the front wheels onto the windshield and front side windows! we were driving totally blind for about 5 seconds until I pulled over to the middle lane out of the water. This water was not thrown up by a truck or other vehicle. The standing water was not deep enough to have been a problem in most cars. I have been driving for almost 30 years and have never seen anything like this. Yes, I have had water thrown on the windshield while passing a truck, but not from my own vehicle. This is an accident waiting to happen. Please check into this. There are many families traveling in this type of vehicle, and they need not be injured if this problem is rectified or at the least the owners are notified. It could probably be easily corrected with some type of fender flare. Regards, cory maydew
