2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

Grand Caravan

  • 77,000 miles


My Dodge Grand Caravan 2001 was involved in a front end collision in October of 2015. I T-boned another car that pulled out in front of me. I was going 35-40 miles per hour. The seat belt failed to tighten around my hips. Because of this failure I sustained extensive damages to my right leg. This included a displaced fracture, numerous other fractures, a crushed injury to the tibia plateau. I had 5 months in rehab, 3 surgeries, extensive physical therapy. I am still receiving medical treatment a year later. If the seatbelt had done what it. Was designed to do, my leg would not of hit the dash board. These injuries were caused by a seatbelt failure of my Dodge Grand Caravan.. extensive records are available.

Seatbelts have come unlatched a number of times. I thought they just weren't snapped in good but now I find out there is a class action suit due to the defective seatbelts. www.unsafebelts.com/index.shtml.

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.

I have a Dodge Grand Caravan 2001. My model has the seatbelt style of gen 3 on all of my seats. We were unawareof the serious safety issues being raised about these particular seatbelts. We became aware from the news. For the past several months my 2 year old has been unbuckeling this very sensitive touch seat belt. Now I know why this is so sensitive. We also own a 1997 Dodge Dakota with the same seat belts. I feel with as many deaths related to this particular seatbelt DaimlerChrysler needs to provide a recall on all gen 3 seatbelts. I have 3 children under 6 and I want something done!!!
