| ||Model of the car:||Grand Aravan|
| ||General comments:||My rating comes as a result of a comfortable drive but a major disappointment in the Caravan and Daimler Chrysler in them taking responsibility for a transmission they have been struggling with for years. I'd love to see action taken some how. Do the stats on just this site allow - 173 reviews and how many with tranmission issues???>>>>>>>...A LARGE percentage... far beyond an acceptable figure.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Transmission... It appears like myself many other owners of the Caravan have experienced very similar issues. I am on my third transmission with just over 41000 kms ( just over 26,000 miles ) In each situation the differential pin has broken off inside the housing of the transmission and literally burst out through the transmission casing. The dealership has certainly replaced the transmission however, I am concerned now as a safety issue of the vehicle as driving at hight speeds on the highway with no warning, the vehicle stalls and decelerates very rapidly as soon as casing breaks. Should anothe vehicle be tailgating us, I'm confident a rear end will occur. Would love to hear from others with same issues.|
