Grand Caravan

  • 53,000 miles


My wife was driving our 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan with our three young children in the car. When the brakes went spongy. It severely impacted her ability to brake safely. She was driving on a city road at about 45 mph when this happened. I took the van to golling chyrsler, Dodge Jeep dealership hoping that they would cover it under warranty. The van is not even 3 years old but it has 50,000 miles on it so there reply was you should've bought and extended warranty. Their diagnosis was the power brake booster went bad and needs to be replaced. Now the dealership and when I called Chrysler and they said the same thing basically I should've bought an extended warranty. All of the independent shops I called around for quotes said it is extremely rare for a brake booster to go bad and all said they've never seen one go bad on such a new vehicle. I did some research and looks like fca issued a recall on 2011-2014 Dodge durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee for bad brake boosters. Coincidence? I think not from what I can find it is the same part!!!!!!! being from southeast Michigan I try to buy american with the big 3 but time and time again I am let down. Should've bought a Honda.

While slowing down to enter a parking lot, the car engine stopped. The power steering went as did the brakes. I put it into neutral and started the car. Since then it has randomly stopped at low speed dozens of times, slowing for a red light or entering a park lot. The car has been to the shop 6 times. 3 different electronic modules have been replaced. It still stalls out.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 100 miles
I bought a Dodge Grand Caravan 2014 in January 2014 new with 7 miles on it. In April 2014, at the top of a hill, my brakes went out, it had approximately 100 miles on it. My brake failure light went on and my brakes did not work. They took the van in and found a part defect caused it - the brake diaphragm was defective. If we had been going any faster we could have been killed.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 8,525 miles


I was driving down the road and without warning, multiple warning lights appeared on the dash/warning alarms sounded. I immediately lost brakes and power steering. The vehicle did nothing when pushing on gas or brake. I was able to pull off the road and slow the vehicle to a stop. I turned it off and then was unable to start the van. It would not turn over, not even to roll up the windows. The van sat approximately 45 minutes while waiting for a tow. After that time, I was able to restart the van. The malfunction indicator light remained on after starting the van. I was able to safely drive the vehicle 5 miles to the closest dealership without the problem happening again.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 17,488 miles
We were driving 55mph on route 100 in Maryland when the driver's knee bumped the key and the ignition moved into the off position. The engine turned off. The car lost power steering and brakes. We tried to restart the car while it was still in motion but it did not restore the power brakes or power steering. We pulled over and put it in park and turned off the ignition. We restarted the vehicle successfully. We then reproduced the event by bumping the driver's knee into the key again while parked, with the same results. This was a rental van from enterprise rental car in columbia, md.
