Defective sway bar at 28,000 miles-dealership stated it is normal with this year of Caravan & that I don't have to have replaced lights would not shut off or turn on with manual operation - when the vehicle is off for a long time the lights turn on for no reason at all. We have replaced the lightbulbs on 3 different occasions fuse keeps on blowing in engine at 32,000 miles, 34,000 miles and 39,050 miles. Electronic windows, door locks, automatic side door no longer operate at 41,000 miles. Excessive corrosion around battery every 4,000 miles paid to have cleaned 5 times and they say my battery is fine other than the corrosion build up.
