2010 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #5

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 30,000 miles


A low tire indicator appeared on the dashboard. Proceeded to check tire pressure. While unscrewing valve cap from the tire valve stem the valve stem broke leaving all air out of the tire. Never have experienced anything like this before. I took the tire off the vehicle and went to the local tire store. The service person told me this is a very common problem with Chrysler valve stems that have the air pressure sensors. He said many people have complained about this and that I was fortunate that it happened at home in my driveway and not in the car wash or on the road where any severe impact could break the stem and cause a rapid loss of tire pressure. I called the Dodge dealer wondering if there had been a recall on these valve stems. There hasn't been. This shouldn't happen and is in my opinion a safety issue that needs to be addressed either through cancellation of this mandate on tire pressure sensors or ensuring that these valve stems will not deteriorate to the point that persons driving these vehicles are put in danger.

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Caravan. The contact stated while driving approximately 55 mph the tire sensor indicator warning light illuminated. The contact inspected the vehicle and noticed the front driver's side tire was flat because the aluminum tire pressure sensor was fractured due to corrosion. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 46,000.

I was driving on the highway at 60 mph, hit a large (approx 6 feet X 4 feet X 4 feet) wooden shipping crate. The crate exploded, and a board became lodged in the tire well and engine compartment. I also lost power the vehicle - the wrecker driver advised that the board appeared to have disconnected the computer wires. The crate hit on the front driver fender. The airbags did not deploy. I would think hitting something the size of the front end of a car at 60 mph should set off the air bags.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 23,500 miles
After getting a flat tire, took car to a tire shop. Found no problem with the tire. The shop showed me the wheel sensor transmitter that was completely corroded. The nut holding it in place had disintegrated, causing the tire to abruptly lose all air. Car has only 23,500 miles on it and has been in use for 2 years and 4 months. I also believe something similar happened to one of the front tires at 17,000 miles, due to constant low tire pressure, even after replacing the tires. But that was handled at the dealership and I was not given the part.

Grand Caravan

  • 1,763 miles
We purchased a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan in July of this year. It has been a dry summer here in northeastern pa and we have not driven much under wet conditions. Approximately two weeks ago my wife and I were going out to dinner and the roads were wet from a small amount of rain. Everytime we started from a stop sign or traffic light the tires would spin before they would gain traction on the pavement. I was shocked that this was happening, and my wife stated it happened to her all the time. This is not a fault of ours as this has never happened previously with any tires we have had on any of our past vehicles. The vehicle does not have additional horse power as the engine is the same as the engine in the Caravan that we traded for this Caravan. When we contacted Chrysler concerning this problem their response was it is not our problem, it is the tire manufacturer's problem. But Chrysler is the one who selected this brand of tires to be placed on this new vehicle. Also, when looking up information on yokohama tires on the internet, I came across a web site that contained 8 pages of complaints about yokohama tires. I contacted the selling dealer wotor world of wilkes barre, pa. And they said they would make an appointment for us with the tire dealer when he was at the dealership. It has been more than two weeks and still no word of an appointment. And the tire dealer is less than 5 miles from the auto dealer. The tires are yokohama model avid S33 the vehicle VIN is [xxx] and my Chrysler complaint # is 19735130. While working on this complaint the selling dealer finally returned our call that we placed today and now they are trying to absolve themselves for any responsibility to be of assistance in handling this problem. At this point we do not know what else to do. We are senior citizens and are afraid to operate the vehicle under wet road conditions.
