There have been many mechanical issues (electrical?) including sliding doors that do not work anymore (they must be closed manually). But the main problem I want to report is rust. Under the wheelwells, under the sliding doors, on the bottom of the trunk hatch doors... it's rusting apart. For a 2007 vehicle this is quite excessive. I've also noticed that other Dodge Grand Caravan of the same marine blue green color have the same exact problem. Has this been investigated? rusting apart... and it's been happening for a couple of years now. You would think a vehicle wouldn't start to have noticeable and pervasive rust in 7 or 8 years to the point where you are embarrassed to drive it.

The vehicle was parked on an inclined driveway. The vehicle was turned of and the key was not in the ignition. My daughter pulled the column shifter without pressing the brake pedal. The vehicle shifted into reverse and rolled backwards down the driveway. The front passenger side door was open. The door struck a tree and stopped the rolling vehicle.

2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT stow N go having several electrical issues. 1. passenger power sliding door failed, replaced power door motor, lock actuator, and repaired wiring as the wires actually break/snap overtime. Poor design. 2. less than two years later passenger power sliding door has failed again, & power locks will not work, & I can open passenger sliding door after locking vehicle with key fob and alarm won't sound! cannot get my children in and out of this door without reaching in and pulling up the lever from inside (too stiff, my daughter isn't strong enough). This is a safety issue and researching it online shows that it is widespread. 3. power seat motor has failed. We have stow N go seating. In order to stow the 2nd row seat you must move front seat to full forward position, then move driver seat back......driver seat is all the way back now (for my spouse) and I cannot move it forward. Gears are broken. I cannot reach the pedals and my seventh seat is stowed! I cannot get my seat back. 4. on passenger side a part below dashboard (I think is related to heating and cooling) fell off. My floor is now wet even after reattaching it. 5. light galore! my vehicle rotates between check engine, and service tire system warnings. I've had it checked by several mechanics and all say it's electrical.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. From September of 2007 until may of 2008, the vehicle was taken to the dealer three times for transmission failure. While attempting to accelerate from a red light, the transmission feels as if it will drop to the ground when shifting from first to second gear. On May 14, 2008, the transmission was finally repaired under warranty. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection because paint was peeling from the rear passenger side quarter panel. The dealer stated that tar adhered to the paint; therefore, they washed the quarter panel and scraped off the paint. When the vehicle and headlights are turned off, the instrument panel lights, fog lights, and headlights would remain illuminated, even though the switch was in the off position. While the vehicle was parked, the exterior lights would illuminate automatically, which drained the battery. The dealer stated that the headlamp switch shorted out. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The contact stated that the switch on the panel to shut the vehicle doors did not work for two days. It has begun to work again, but the contact believes it is only a matter of time before the switch fails again. The current mileage was 7,000 and failure mileage was 2,500. Updated 07/10/08. Updated
