Dodge Caravan SE
| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Caravan SE|
| ||General comments:||I would not reccomend a Caravan to anyone until Daimler-Chrysler fixes the problems with the transmission. I purchased my Caravan in September of 1998 used. It had 49,000 miles. 2 months later the transmission died while I was on the freeway. It cost me $1,700.00 to fix. In September of 1999 the transmission died again. It cost me $1,400.00 to fix. Three days ago (11-30-00) It died again. The same exact problem as last year. I have paid $2,100.00 for a complete rebuilt transmission. It supposably has a 3 year or 36,000 mile warranty. All my dealings with Chrysler were terrible. Since it was not under warranty I was told I would have to pay for repairs. I am in the process of suing Chrysler in Superior Court for all repairs and Kelley Blue Book value as advised from an attorney I retained. I will keep eveyone appraised of my situation. Based on complaints made by other owners to NHTSA and webpages like this I think I have a good case. I will see. The computer makes you choose atleast one star for Value and Overall ratings. I DO NOT give them any...|
