I PURCHASED THIS VAN FROM A PRIVATE OWNER. I HAVE HAD IT FOR JUST OVER 2 YEARS. I KNEW IT HAD A FEW PROBLEMS WHICH I TOOK CARE OF. IT IS A 2002 DODGE RAM VAN 1500. I HAD LEFT HOME JUST TO GO TO THE STORE. WHEN I WAS JUST ABOUT TO GET ON THE FREEWAY MY VAN SWERVED AND I COULD NOT CONTROL IT. I WAS ABLE TO GET IT CONTROLLED AND MADE IT HOME (BARELY) AT 15 MILES PER HR. WHEN I LOOKED UNDER THE FRONT END I SEEN THAT THE FRAME HAD A BIG HOLE IN IT AND WAS CRACKED. TIE RODS BROKE OFF BECAUSE OF THIS. JUST 2 DAYS EARLIER I TOOK MY WIFE IN THIS VAN ON THE FREEWAY AND WE DROVE ABOUT 50 MILES. ALL I CAN SAY IS THANK GOD NOTHING HAPPENED TO US. I SOMETIMES TAKE MY GRANDCHILDREN WITH ME AND I DO NOT EVEN WANT OT THINK OF THE OUTCOME IF SOMETHING HAPPENED WHILE THEY WERE WITH ME. I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ONLIINE ABOUT SIMILAR PROBLEM AND I WANT AN ANSWER FROM DODGE REGARDING THE REPAIR OF THIS PROBLEM. I AM ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND I CAN NOT AFFORD TO PAY FOR A PROBLEM BEYOND MY CONTROL. I WOULD LIKE A RESPONSE OR I WILL SEE AN ATTORNEY

A lot of vans have frame rust to the point of not being safe. Paint coming off interior and exterior. Dodge just blows you off, because it was over thier warranty.

I found a post on here where someone had the exact same failure and I wanted to post my pics as well. I purchased this van new in 2002 and have kept it up well to have the underside fail. If I am reading of this failure being common on these vans and they are well maintained, I think there is a problem. I got the usual ander from Dodge on this that it is old and it is a matter of where I live being in Ohio. I think it is wrong. I am at the end of my rope on this. If anyone has advise or wants to team up with me on going to Chrysler, please reply.
