I was driving down the highway at 70 miles an hour, and all of a sudden my car shuts off and turns back on and could not steer for a few mins, and it would not go over 45 miles an hour, every thing shut off in the car, it happened again, in rush hour traffic. My brakes on the car and rotors I have replaced 4 times in 3 years its eats them up, sometimes the side doors just open by them selves, driving or parked, control buttons are going out all the time, windows go up and down on there own, this car is a death trap waiting to happen. I have contacted the Dodge dealership I am on a waiting list and have been for 4 months they still say the parts are not in yet.

My vehicle turned off as I was driving causing me to almost be involved in an accident. This was not the first time my van has done this. It is caused by the faulty ignition switch issue sited in the L25 recall. I no longer feel safe driving my van alone or using it to Transport my 4 children. I am seeking a loaner vehicle from Chrysler until mine is fixed.

Am having the exact same issue as the K14 recall. But am being told that is only for power doors. Last year I changed a new the sliding door wiring harness but still am having the same issue, by opening and closing the door it broke the censor clip and then broke the plastic cover on top of wire know the wire is being damaged my front windows are not working the air bag sensor not working. And that exactly because of the hinge which is breaking the plastic cover while ur sliding the doors.

The drain for the ac leaks under the passenger side dash. A recall (K25) was issued because the leaking water can affect the air bag control. Chrysler will not cover this vehicle claiming the VIN # is not included. The problem and safety concerns are the same and the recall should be extended to cover all affected vehicles.

I tried to avoid hitting a deer and when swerving I went off the road and hit a telephone pole at 55 miles an hour. My airbags didn't deploy and I am now out of work with herniated discs in my neck. I have 4 young children that don't understand that daddy cannot play with them! I will now forever be worried if I'm going to move wrong and be paralyzed! I'm scared and shouldn't be! this vehicles safety systems should have operated properly!

2009 Dodge Caravan modified by the braun corporation to include a manual ramp for wheelchair passengers was traveling on a 2 lane icy bridge and was unable to stop for a 1997 Chevy truck that had already slid out on the bridge and was left sitting across both lanes. The Dodge Caravan hit the vehicle head on with such force that the driver had the parts from an artificial hip come out. When looking at the vehicle the airbags didn't deploy but the front end is seriously damaged and the vehicle is a total loss...updated 04/26/12. Updated 06/27/12 car fax report received.
