Grand Caravan

  • 21,000 miles
We've experienced problems with the middle row integrated child safety seats. Several times, the tensioner on the seat would not work, and I had to pop the end of the seat back cover off to access the mechanism to free what the belt was caught on. I didn't completely remove the cover so I could see exactly what was happening. Also, sometimes the buckle will not secure the belt plate. It will secure after several attempts, and we've recently noticed that it works better if we latch a particular side first, then the other side (5 point harness). I don't know if the mechanism sticks or if food or something got forced inside. These have both been recurring problems since we purchased the vehicle.
