1997 Dodge Caravan from North America
Lemon joke of Dodge
72000 transmission went out
Oil Leak and A/C not working
Wheel cylinders busted
Tires wearing out very fast, car never wants to stay aligned
Windshield wipers have a mind of their own
Front end shakes horribly
Driver seat acts like not bolted to floor properly
Starter fell off (yes, fell off)
Fortunately I bought the warranty of the lowest grade, which covered the transmission. Next I had the wheel cylinders fixed and replaced the tires myself. I fought with the dealership for almost a year before they agreed to fix the head gasket leak, water pump, and timing belt. Car ran good for 3 months or so and I come home from work and the starter fell off. I had to have towed and spent $345.00 having a new one on it. About a month ago my air went out again and car started hesitating and idling very low. Have had different things done to it to determine the problem. Tonight I am driving home from the grocery store and the transmission is starting to go out again. I have invested atleast $3000.00 in this car in the last year. After reading what I have tonight has made me reconsider Dodge products and make a call to their office. This is ridiculous of what I am finding out here on the Internet. Does it take someone getting killed or something before Dodge decides to take action? Look at what happened with Ford and their tires. All complaints should be emailed to Dodge. We invest in America for out future and get nothing in return. What Happened?
Car is rooming for hauling kids and going on trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
