Takata recall 1. the key fob, automatically controlled rear door hatch does not stay open when using the key fob or manually opening the hatch door. It has closed nearly upon myself - the owner, and others - without warning when stopped, motor off and loading or unloading items. There is no way to assess what caused this as it gets below normal wear. Single party use, no kids. This incidence started 12/12/2016 2. the front brakes make a scraping noise and wobbling of steering wheel upon coming to a stop. This was mentioned to the dealer earlier this year and brakes, pads and rotors were checked at dealer, and it was stated that nothing was wrong. New brake pads were installed in 2013. The car mileage is 85241 miles. The wheels have been rotated, aligned. The car has regular, routine maintainance, the brakes still scrapes and wobbles the steering wheel. This has been a recurring incidence.

Antilock brake warning light stays on for more than 8 hours system was off line and not operable. Next day warning light came on and than went off. This has happened several other times placing the antilock braking system off than on again. I believe the antilock braking system of this Dodge Caravan was/is defective at the time of manufacture of this vehicle.

While driving on a public road at 35-40 mph the vehicle began to slow down. It got progressively slower on a level road even as the accelerator was applied. At this point I noticed that the brake pedal travel was considerably less than normal and the pedal felt very hard. The problem got progressively worse and car was barely able to limp home. It felt like I was driving in deep sand. I could not go fast enough for the transmission to shift from low gear. There were no warning lights lit on the dash panel. After sitting overnight, it appeared that the car had returned to normal and I was able to drive the car to the dealership. On first inspection the dealership was unable to find a problem. I encouraged them to call the factory for possible engineering bulletins. After three days in the shop I was informed that the factory had determined that the problem was related to a faulty brake booster with the cost of repair estimated at $800. I had previously experienced this problem about 6-8 months previously, which had totally disabled the vehicle and it had to be flatbed towed to the dealership. At that time there was no dealer resolution since, after sitting overnight, they couldn't get the vehicle to repeat the situation during test drives. I feel that if this had happened on our local interstate at highway speeds it could have resulted in a more serious situation, particularly if the brakes had bound up tightly, and it may be a safety-related issue with this particular vehicle.
