2002 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3.3 V6 from North America
This is the worst vehicle I have ever owned!!!
I've had the transmission fixed three times.
Outer tie-rods have been replaced.
Sway bar links have been replaced.
Passenger side control arm and bushings have been replaced.
The passenger front strut plate bearings need to be replaced.
The lower radiator hose (the metal one) has been replaced.
The intake gaskets have been replaced.
The passenger rear hub assembly needs to be replaced due to bad bearings.
The emergency brake cables on the passenger side need to be replaced.
The paint on the front of the van has started to bubble.
There is a lot of noise coming from the power steering pump.
The heater relay has needed to be replaced twice.
The transmission sensors have been replaced.
All of the gaskets and the solenoid have been replaced in the transmission.
I've owned this van for just over two years, and it has been nothing but problems since the day I purchased it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I own an 02 Grand Caravan Olympic Edition, and am having the same problem.
The van has 241000kms and the horn started blaring and the hazard lights started flashing, the same reaction you would get trying to steal it.
It was taken to the garage, and they took the horn fuse out and put it back in, everything went back to normal, so we thought.
Now the radio, auto lock, the remote lock, interior lights don't function and the gauges go wacko when you start the van.
The mechanic says it's the IPM that is corroding and malfunctioning.
Otherwise the van runs great, I just need to solve this electrical problem before it causes some other functions to stop working, worst case scenario, while we're driving it.
