Grand Caravan SE
| ||Model of the car:||Grand Caravan SE|
| ||General comments:||Routine maintenance until just after 36 months, then transmission failed, along with "planetary kit", at 69,000 mi - unacceptable for a $27,000 vehicle. Chrysler Customer service was downright RUDE, and insisted that transmission problems were corrected by the early 90's. I called the dealership, and htey said the District Manager will get back to me - have caller ID at home, but no call after one week). Trans. failure also occurred with 2 of my brothers Chrysler vans (states - VA,PA) and an in-law (in TX).I encourage consumers to post their complaint on the NHTSA complaint board.
