Wow. I feel very fortunate when I read all the problems some people have. Luckily none of our Chrysler products (or Ford or GM) have ever had any problems before 100,000 miles. Our GM SUV just hit 100,000 miles, and has not even had the brake pads replaced yet. The rear pads look good for another 50,000 miles.

That's funny, because I can say the same thing about Hondas and Toyotas and Chevrolets. Fords and Dodges are all I will ever own. But as with any car, they all have their quirks and problems. We must remember that this stuff is made on a computer assembly line, so with that said, one out of every 1000 cars built will have a problem.

Definitely a problem if you had three transmissions in 5 months... are they new, or rebuilt? Something isn't right, hope you aren't paying for those.
I had a 1998 that had the tranny go out at 60K, the next one lasted another 60K, and the van caught fire at 240K...
My 2005 has 100K on it, 3.8 liter, had to replace the A/C compressor, nothing else. Very happy with it.
I'd want to know, from your mechanic, why you had three trannies in 5 months. They either were used, rebuilt, or you need another mechanic.

My 2013 Caravan kept saying the tire pressure was low. I checked them and they were up to the right amount. I drove it 65 MPH a week ago, last night at 55 MPH, and today the tire was as flat as a pancake with a "ring" around the tire around the side, not from rubbing on a curb either. I was devastated. Taking it to the dealer to see what they say.

I have 2005 Grand Caravan. Flashing alarm light stays on. Radio not working now and inside lights not coming on!
Any suggestions? Thank you.

Myself and many people I know have owned Dodge Caravans for small business use or family use. They are the greatest vans ever in my opinion. I think a lot of people do not maintain them well, as it's a minivan, and overload them with stuff, tow trailers, etc... which is when problems occur. They are great vans, excellent deals in the used market, awesome reliability and gas mileage. They also have the awesome stow and go feature, which no other manufacturer offers.
