Dodge Grand Caravan V6 3.0L
| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Grand Caravan V6 3.0L|
| ||General comments:||This Vehicle was bought used with 89800 miles on it, it now has 90,000 miles on it and I've already seen weird things happen, I was on the highway and saw my speedomider go backwards instead of forwards, I'm assuming that it might be the first signs of the transmission failing, Also I have had to put new struts and mounts on the van in the 2 months I have owned it at the time this was done, the mechanic told me the ball joint was going and needed to be replaced, personally I think when they put the new struts on they did something to the ball joint boot because it didn't make the noise prior to the new strut being replaced. I also put 2 new front 50,000 mile tires on, and due to improper alignment the right side tire has worn on the inside and the rest of the tire is fine, however I think it could be due to the ball joint or the older struts. as far as the alignment is concerned, I had it done 2 weeks ago, and it was already thrown out so it was realigned when the struts were replaced aka suspecting the ball joint failure.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||On my way to Replacing the Whole Suspention system, already cost me $307 in repairs, waiting to see what the ball joints cost me to replace.|
| ||Previous car:||None, owned a Honda Civic prior to the purchase of the van.|
