There seems to be a wind noise coming from the windshield. Is this normal for this vehicle? the dealer said it was. I don't trust the dealer.

Is anyone reading these complaints on Dakota brake rotors"!? I am on my 4th set of front rotors, which are already warped. Each set goes about 10-11K untill needing resurfacing/ replacement.. my local dealership actually billed some of my visits for rotors in a manner that the dealership I bought it from can't even understand what was done. I no longer tow anything, trying to make the rotors last longer- why did I waste money ordering the heavyduty tow package? I am sick of these brakes, like so many other Dakota owners. How many complaints does it take" nlm

Windshield and side windows on passenger side has stars in it and the manufacture rep said they have never seen anything like it but will investigate it further.they seem to bubble up and you can scrape the top off of them with a razor blade.one of the mechanics said they had a whole load of Caravan that came in like that and they replaced all of the windows.Dodge needs to stand behind it's productsand give the customer what they paid for because this vehicle was not cheap.

Glass exploded into dust and lodged in my eye causing bleeding. The glass did not stay intact like windshield glass does, due to a plastic film in glass. Airbag did not deploy. Luckily I was not blinded, but I needed to repspond to the doctors three times to remove all glass from my eye.
