Town & Country

  • 6,000 miles


Brake rotors warped -- 2008 Chrysler Town and country limited. With less than 6,000 miles on the vehicle, when applying normal pressure to the brake pedal to stop the vehicle, the peddle would pulsate and the vehicle would shimmy slightly. I surmised and it was confirmed that the rotors were out of round (warping). The dealer replaced the rear rotors and resurfaced the front rotors. With such limited mileage on the vehicle, I would suspect the rotors are inadequate for this vehicle. The dealer indicated the replacement of the rear rotors was with not only new rotors but with an upgraded part. I'm still concerned that the front rotors may be inadequate. Generally, when you feel a shimmy in the break peddle and steering wheel it occurs due to an issue in the front of the vehicle. I'm going to continue to monitor the status of this situation and if it occurs again, will request replacement of the front rotors. Have there been other reports of this nature with 2008 Chrysler made minivans. I have the 4 liter engine with 6 speed auto transmission.

Town & Country

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country. While driving approximately 10 mph on normal road conditions, the brake pedal extended to the floor without resistance when it was depressed. The vehicle failed to slow down after several attempts and there was a loss of brake line pressure. Immediately, the driver swerved and mounted the vehicle on the curbside. The vehicle came to a complete stop. In addition, the engine warning indicator illuminated intermittently on the instrument panel. There were no injuries, but the front bumper and both headlight bulbs were damaged. The vehicle was able to be driven to the contact's residence. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer for inspection, but they could not duplicate the failure. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 15,000.
