Braking system is awful!! I have had the rotors and calibers replaced twice. Every time I take it to the dealership they inform me that this is normal for the Dodge Caravan. They say it is because it has the body of a van but the braking system is designed for that of a midsize car. And because it is front wheel drive all the weight and force rests on the braking system. I find this appalling!! I have never had this many problems with any other vehicle I have owned. As a matter of fact, the first time I had to have this work done, the van was only about 8 months old and the "brake work" did not fall under warranty. The right rotor was replaced as well as the calibers. The last time I had it done the mechanic kept saying, "your calibers are sticking and they affect the rotor and had to replace the one on the left side."
