problem #2

Feb 172006

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,500 miles
I was driving along at 70 mph on the freeway. Car sputtered and died. I was able to get it to the side of the road before losing all hydraulics, thankfully. It was determined by the local Dodge dealer that my fuel pump had failed and that the van ran out of gas. My gas gauge was giving a false reading. They are replacing fuel pump. We'll see if this problem surfaces again. I hope not. This was distressing to me because, if I wasn't able to get to the side of the freeway, I would have lost all power control over braking and steering. The dealer told me this was a "vendor" problem with the faulty part.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Automatic light switch is defective, lights come on at night and run battery down. This is a 2005 Caravan and only 41000 miles on it. The fuel pump went out today. We were driving down the street and it just died in the middle of the road, almost got us run over. At over $25000 you expect a car to last longer than 10 months. I will not buy another one! the dealer said after 36000 miles its not covered. That's bull!. now its gonna cost us $500 or more to fix just the fuel pump, not the defective lights. This van is a lemon!!!!!!!!!
