problem #1

Oct 212006

Villager 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles
Front suspension ball joints are prone to excessive wear and failure. Joints replaced at 28,000 miles are now failing again at 68,000 miles. There is no service required on these joints. Wear causes excessive tire life loss, vibration in the steering and potential loss of steering control.
