problem #2

Grand Caravan

  • 128,000 miles
1. had a flat and tried to lower the spare tire which is held up by a winch underneath the vehicle. 2. followed the instructions in the vehicle to lower the spare tire using the supplied wrench; however, the tire would only lower about two inches and not lower far enough for the spare to be removed from the 't' that holds it in place when the wheel is secured. 3. the spare would not come down so I had to remove the flat tire from the vehicle and get a ride to get the wheel fixed then get a ride back to the vehicle to re-install the tire. After several attempts at lowering the spare, I still could not get it to come down so I took the vehicle to and auto repair shop. The repair shop was not able to get the wheel to come down either and had to cut the "T" to remove the wheel.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
2000 Grand Caravan has multiple rust points. The most dangerous of which is the rusting and deterioration of the front left strut. The top portion of the strut cover is rusted and falling apart, with a crack in it. Other parts of the car that are showing many rust areas include: Passenger door (can put finger through rust), hood (bubbling paint and cracking), paint peeling from antenna housing, rear hatch rust, left rear wheel basin. My largest concern is the strut rust for safety issues, but this vehicle should not be rusting so poorly being only 5 years old!
