2005 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #3

May 102009

Grand Caravan V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


This Dodge Grand Caravan has had every problem possible. EGR sensor failed at 40,000 miles, electric door locks became inoperable at 35,000 miles, sliding door inop at 60,000 miles, brake problems at 50,000 miles. I've never owned such a piece of junk in my life. NEVER AGAIN will I buy a Dodge. They are complete junk.

Grand Caravan SXT 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles

Yet one more fine electrical problem with this van! The check engine light came on so I went to the auto parts store to get the code read. It indicated a failed EGR sensor. My local garage was quick to fix this problem and also clean out the carbon build-up in the throttle body. They indicated this build-up could have been caused by the bad valve. This build-up has been causing hard starts and reduced mileage for a few weeks now as well as a sticky accelerator. I had this build-up cleaned out a couple years ago as well, so either its also a common problem or perhaps this valve has not been functioning right for a while.

(reported on)

Grand Caravan SE 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles

The engine light came on and the engine running rough. Diagnostic indicated the EGR valve. Of course this had to go right when I was due for inspection and NH began mandatory reporting of any emission related problem that affects the ability to pass the annual emission test.
