Grand Caravan

  • miles
The van slid backwards then accelerated at a higher speed going from a stop to slowly with a light tap on the gas pedal. The speed does not go higher than 15mph with the rmp too high when this occurs. It jerks back when trying to drive it forward. Has not left the dealership parking lot. Drove out 3mile out with this occuring. 3 attempts to fix. Still not driving well and can't leave the dealership lot.

Grand Caravan

  • 72,000 miles
The transmission stopped shifting into gear (reverse and drive). The van stopped in the middle of the highway, directly in traffic. The vehicle was in drive when T stopped completely. The vehicle was screaming loudly and would not shift into gear at all. My life was in immediate danger! the electrical is turning on and off without assistance including while driving. This has happened several times prior. The Dodge dealer was notified in person of my issues and concerns. Nothing was done to ensure the safety of the vehicle at any time. The vehicle has been out of service for 30 days.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 29,500 miles
While driving on the highway in a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan with cruise control engaged at the posted speed of 70mph, the cruise failed to disengage with the depression of the brake, or by trying to turn the cruise off. The accelerator was stuck; and the floor mat was checked to see if this was jamming the system. It was not. Repeated depression of brake pedal failed to disengage cruise control. Repeated attempts to shut off cruise control failed. Finally I prayed, and the cruise disengaged. Used the cruise again the next day at lower speed of 45 mph on back highway and noticed some sticking. Was able to brake and disengage at lower speed after several attempts. Have not used the cruise control again. The vehicle had less than 30,000 miles on it at the time. In both instances the vehicle was going straight.
