Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
For the last 40,000+ miles the vehicle always stumbles or stalls after filling the fuel tank full. We're not talking about overfilling, just filling it until the auto shut-off shuts off the flow. It will buck and stumble when you are driving down the road and often dies when you are pulling out into traffic. It has stalled on my wife while she was waiting to turn left at a busy intersection. Once re-started it runs fine until the next fill-up. The dealer told me it is the purge solenoid and it would cost $190 to fix. The vehicle has 92,000 miles on it and I thought that was well below the federal emissions warranty and it also has the extended 100,000 mile warranty. I have not had it fixed yet, but just avoid topping off the tank. The date listed below is only the most recent. We are talking about literally dozens of failures of this sort -- every single time the gas tank is filled to the auto-stop without fail. The service guy at the dealership said they have had a number of complaints of this type about this vehicle.
