problem #1

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,000 miles
I bought a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan at around 87K in 2004. At the time I was aware that there's a knocking noise under the hood. I thought maybe due to the high mileage. I've been a local dealer for regular services since then and no one ever told me there's a problem with this. Until around September I went to the deal had transmission fluid changed and a person from the service department wanted me to replace sway bar links and bushings for my vehicle. I didn't know what was this all about so I asked a list of parts that he required me for replacing. I went home and did some research on these parts and found many owner of this cars complaint about a knocking noise from this model. An owner was told to replace his sway bar links and bushings and he did what was told but the noise is coming back after 6 months. My co-worker bought his Chrysler Town & Country (2002 model), which is the same model as Dodge Grand Caravan around the same time (2004) I bought mine. It's mileage is around 30K. He gave me a ride just 2 weeks ago and I found that it has the knocking noise too. My worry is will this a safety issue or not" I'm sure this is a manufactured defect from daimler Chrysler and just wondering why DC isn't recall this model for having the problem fixed? * this should be a all year round incident excepts summer (why").
