problem #2

Apr 142004

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,488 miles
I started my 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan and turned on the air conditioner. I opened the doors to let the heat out and my 2 1/2 year old son reached into the front seat and pulled the shifter into drive. The van shifter shifted without pushing the brake and the van ran into my chain-link fence. This is a saety issue and I do not think it was recalled. If it does not get recalled then I will trade in my vehicle for a more safe one.
