problem #4

Grand Caravan

  • 117,000 miles


The front of the vehicle started shimmying and the steering wheel. At first, it started at about 55 mph. Now it is doing it at lower and lower speeds. There are pages and pages of complaints with the same issue. It is also very hard to turn the steering wheel when going slow. There is a safety recall for the front suspension and lower control arm. Campaign no 01V152000 but the local dealership said my VIN number was not included. How can you continue to let them sell defective vehicles and not make them recall all affected vehicles? they said the same thing about my Ram truck. There's a recall on it and they said my vehicle was not in the recall, but it has the same issue with the steering column and the air and heat going out. I wish I had read the number of complaints against them on your site and on all the other sites before I bought these lemons. You should also check out www.daimlerchryslervehicleproblems.com/ that is just one of the websites detailing the number of deaths caused by Dodge. I am going to make a complaint against them to the justice department also. Maybe if they investigate, you will finally do something about all these problems.
