| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Caravan |
| ||General comments:||We've owned this car for four years and the transmission has needed repairing and finally replacing three times in its life. The first two times were under warranty, but the third time was not. We were planning a major trip with it this summer but our local dealer advised us after having the transmission serviced that if the problem we were experiencing with the transmission wasn't any better than it was only going to get worse. Sure enough about 20 driving hours after he called the transmission went for the third time. We were not impressed. Thankfully we had decided to fly to Toronto, or we would have been flying down the 401 when it died. Also our windshield wipers don't work and we can't find the problem so my husband has rewired it so that we have our own switch to turn them off and on. The power window on the driver side went in 2001, but once again my husband managed to rig something up, but the passenger side is now not working. The back hatch lock also needed repairs and the backup light hasn't worked since we got it. Finally, the brake light comes on all the time and there is nothing wrong with the brakes at all. Another electrical problem we guess.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Obviously, the transmission is a major problem as well as the electrical system.|
| ||Previous car:||This is our first minivan. When we buy again it won't be Dodge unless they reimburse me for the third transmission repair. We wish we could afford a Honda or Toyota.|
