Grand Caravan

I have a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan le 3.8. in the last 2 months the serpentine belt slipped off 2 times when it is raining outside or the van goes through a puddle of water. I have almost been killed twice. I have read that other Dodge owners have also had this problem. The wheel cannot be controlled when this happens, and my wife is scared to drive this car now. I think that Dodge has some explaining to do as they have been made aware of this defect, and are not taking any responsibility for this repeated serious safety fault.

After pulling away from a stop, noticed a puddle was left & a clanking noise. Took vehicle to transmission specialist. Was informed that the differential pin had wedged a hole in the transmission. This was causing the leak & the noise. Nlm
