2006 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #1

May 232006

Caravan 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 532 miles


I purchased a 4 cyl 2006 Dodge Caravan on April 28th, 2006. On May 22nd the power steering failed completely while my wife and family were out shopping. There was a substantial leak of red fluid that had spayed the entire inside of the engine compartment. (afterwards I realized how fortunate we were that there wasn't a fire) we had it towed to the dealership and were told that a hose wasn't properly "torqued" at the factory and had come off the power steering pump. I voiced my concern that all the hoses, belts and wiring had been subjected to a solvent and that it needed to be cleaned up. No effort was made to remove or clean up the solvent. I had to insist and another service was scheduled. I am still not satisfied as the engine now chatters and chirps for the first 20 minutes or so when first started. What else was "left not properly torqued" at the factory?
