2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #4

Jul 262007

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,400 miles


My daughter's five year old friend grabbed the shoulder belt to fasten her seat belt when the belt came loose from the side of the van. She was sitting on the passenger side of the third bench seat. Fortunately, the van was parked at the time, but I shudder to think what would have happened had she been wearing the belt and we got into an accident.

The release buckles on the 2nd and 3rd row seats of 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan are above the buckle and can unlatch the seat belt by occupants arms or objects in the seat in an accident. This is a dangerous situation and needs to be recalled on all models with these gen3 Chrysler belt buckles. The minivans usually carry children who are all at risk. The 2004 and 2005 models of the Dodge and Chrysler minivans now have the gen4 belt buckles with the recessed release buckles in the 2nd and 3rd row seats.

When involved in an accident my sons seat belt unlatched causing him to be thrown foward, luckly he survived the accident with only bumbs, cuts and bruises. The repair shop told me the belt seamed fine, but I have been bothered by this ever since and did my own research to discover that this is a know problem and they no longer use this type of buckle. Crysler refused to change my buckles to the new kind and I fear if in another accident it could be fatal.
