| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Caravan |
| ||General comments:||Major maintenance issues since 3yr warranty expired. Am following scheduled maintenance guidleines as written by Chrysler. Average bill prior to expiry of 3yr warranty, $94 on 11 visits, average bill since, $349 on 7 visits. Buy the additional 2 years of warranty coverage if you got the cash.|
Only 75,000kms (47,000 miles) and front and rear value cover seals have been replaced due to major engine oil leakage. Belt tensioner seized, replaced, next maintenance belt needs replacing, labor charged again. Could have replaced belt time before and saved maintenance costs??
Chrysler should post a service schedule and prices so all new van buyers can see the future costs. Even the printed schedule is not complete and extra needs are made known on each visit???
Had a 1985 Voyager before, traded it in on this one and didnt have near this many major repairs by year 5. Definitey some bad vehicles (LEMONS) being made and no hope for consumer.
