This discription is for the undercarrige: The van keeps squeeking when you go over bumps, the dealer saids that the rubber gouments between the frame and the body were not supportive enough for all the weight of the van and the weight of all the passengers. I'm a single parent with kids and I do not have the money to replace all the rubber grouments between the frame and the body that the repair shop suggest I do or I can just keep paying them to lube them. As for the transmission thats another story apparently all my internal seals are leaking and it is causing the transmission to slip. For a brand new 2000 Dodge van this is ridiculous. They want between $3500 and $5000 to replace. I've E mailed Dodge concerning these problems and of course no response from them. Like it goes in one ear and out the other to say. This will defintly be the last Dodge I will ever look at again because for this being my ever first new car I've ever own I've been very disappointed with them. And I've talked to other Dodge owners and they say the same thing transmission problems rubber seals and lights.

2000 Dodge 2500 has loose steering, wanders, darts left or right and constantly correcting the steering wheel and shimmy. Truck darted to the edge of the road and went thru the ditch while towing a trailer and I have back and neck injurys and unable to work at my old profession. And Dodge is trying to settle with now and stop the website. Please look at www.dodgetrucksteeringproblems.com and get back with your opinion and please look at the problems other people are having and the denying by Dodge.
