The contact owns a 2002 Chrysler Voyager. Soon after the vehicle was purchased, the air bag light illuminated. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer three or four times regarding this failure. After regularly servicing her vehicle, she has had to replace the front and rear brakes at 20,000 and 40,000 miles. The dealer stated that the brakes needed to be replaced again at 70,000 miles. Two weeks after her vehicle had been inspected and while driving 5 mph, the transmission snapped in half. The vehicle had to be pushed off the road and then towed to a mechanic. The mechanic confirmed that the front and rear brakes needed to be replaced and stated that any part that was contaminated by the transmission failure had to be replaced. The vehicle is currently with the mechanic and repairs currently total $1,400. The contact is scheduled to have arbitration with the dmv. The purchase date and powertrain were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 77,000.

Owned 2002chrysler mini van..had to depress the brake extra hard for it to engage in park and if I'm in a hurry and didn't step on the brake extra hard it won't stay in park. In fact all of the letters will have squares around them indicating it's not in park. A couple of times it started moving on it's own. Luckily I was close by and corrected the problem. I have brought it to the attention of the Chrysler service person that services my car, and I'm told that's the way it is. Well I don't think so, it's very scary to think your car is in park and it isn't. I don"T know what "oem" means so I indicated no.

Van made rattling noise when in gear. Van later made whining noise. Dealer replaced torque converter and flex plate. After losing use of van for 4 days, the next day, the whining noise recurred. The second day after I had it back, in addition to whining noise, automatic transmission failed. It only moved through first, second, maybe third gear. Engine revs when it's trying to shift gears.
