When driving (usually accelerating) the engine will stop running causing difficult breaking and steering. This has happened on multiple occasions and getting worse!!!!! the steering wheel must be tilted up before it will restart.

problem #3

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 118,000 miles
Rear brake lines have rusted and failed. They have rusted and failed in the area just behind the ABS module where the braided lines are connected to the rigid lines. The rest of the brake lines are in fine shape. The only areas where they are bad is where the braided sections connect to the rigid sections.

problem #2

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 123,860 miles
Mileage at time of incident: 123860 miles. While driving this loaner vehicle of a friend. I encountered a sudden and unexpected hydraulic brake failure while stopping. Loss of brake fluid. Mechanical braking was available. Assessment of system showed no leaks on or around booster, master cylinder or ABS distribution module. Approximately 50mm of severe corrosion of the two, rigid steel brake tubing sections, originating from the second junctions of the flexible hoses to the respective rigid steel brake tubing, that run along the driver side frame. When the braking system was used to stop, the sudden increase of hydraulic pressure caused a structural failure of the degraded tubing. This failure caused the catastrophic loss of hydraulic brake fluid and loss of the hydraulic braking system. This failure resulted in a near collision with another vehicle. Photographs were taken of the brake line tubing and junction and show the severity of the corrosion. This complaint is consistent with other similar complaints for this model and vehicle and model year as posted on the NHTSA.gov website.

While driving @ 35 mph I tried to apply my brakes and the pedal went to the floor. I was able to get the car stopped and off the roadway. When I looked under my van I had lost all brake fluid. I was towed to a repair shop and informed the brake lines burst. This van has been in the family since 2003. Every year the brake lines must be replaced. This should not be. Thanks to my expertise I was able to prevent an accident today. Was I lucky"?"
