problem #3

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

After several months of problems with my power seat memory system(my seats would switch to a setting that was not programmed by myself), I contacted my dealer and advised them of my situation. This unwanted adjustment could be replicated by pressing the unlock button on my fob. I began unlocking my van with my key. I advised my dealer again. This past June, while operating my van onto a freeway, the seat began to change positions and the mirrors readjusted. My children and a family friend observed this action as it occurred. I grabbed hold of the wheel and readjusted all of the above mentioned items while still maintaining control. This process has recurred on at least five occasions. Upon return from our vacation, I notified the dealer and made an appointment. After several hours at the dealership, they stated that my options were to disconnect the auto-setting or return the vehicle when a particular computer was returned to them. My visit cost me several hours and a bill of over $98. Currently I am able to manually adjust the seat and mirror.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,513 miles
While driving at 65 mph and with no warning, the automatic transmission failed. The dealer stated that the vehicle was only covered up to 36000 miles. The vehicle lurched forward, screeched and the transmission had gone out. Also, the front seat adjustment motor stopped working in the up and down position. The driver and passenger window motors, ac compressor, and the automatic tailgate close latch all had to be replaced.
