Where should I begin? I only have 36,000 miles and it will be 4 yrs old in May.
I did purchase the $3000 extended warranty which I have used! I do have $100 deductible
The most signifcant problem has been the sliding doors. The passenger door has been repaired 7 times!
Oil consumption issues with two oil leaks - one almost resulted in blowing the engine - I was out of oil and the oil light came on one time!
Driver seat adjustment switch broke - seat was stuck bent forward and had to be towed to the dealer 3 days after we bought it!
Air conditioning leaks - hoses replaced with recalls
Heater broke most recently
DVD system had to be reprogrammed
Front & rear brakes replaced twice
Premature tire wear - all four tires replaced with Chrysler paying half of the $800
3rd row bench not locking in place when going from folded to back up to seats
Water leak, water collecting on the driver side door causing rust
Transmission occasionally jumping - dealership was not able to find anything
Driver side window grinding was repaired, not a official recall yet
Sliding doors frozen shut when the temp dips below 30 degrees
Interior finishes - the silver tone on center console is wearing off in places and the leather on the inside of doors scratches very easy.
The whole van rattles & creaks like an old pickup truck when it rains and temps are lower than 50 degrees. Really annoying when the overhead console rattles. I have to drive holding the console with one hand and drive with one hand until the heat warms up the inside and then the rattle stops.

Chrysler denied the first claim of full reimbursement of purchase price. The lawyer is trying again.
Meanwhile, I go tomorrow for another set of brakes!!! Less than 20,000 miles on them.

Brakes replaced 5 times for first three years, now rear brakes gone again we are 4 yrs into this nightmare! Lawyer got us some compensation from Chrysler for the brakes services but now after warranty is up 60,000 miles things are literally falling off the van. Driver side handle, driver side sliding door handles both broke off in our hands as we tried to open the doors within 2 months of each other after 3 yrs use. Running boards, DVD player now quit working, we had the rear suspension drop hit our rear tire and exploded the brand new tire doing 70MPH nearly killing us and who knows who else on 95 South near Orlando Florida cost us over $800 in towing /repairs , it is a nightmare, even A/C now cuts on when it wants to. Ignition fails at will, we don't know why neither does the dealer or any one else for that matter! These cars are LEMONS and we still owe almost $15000 on it which we were told we would still be responsible for if we turned in the vehicle. look , we wanna keep American jobs ,but when the quality of the stuff built here is this who can blame us for shopping elsewhere?? If anyone has a lawyer who has handled such a case and set a precedent for it please contact me ASAP we need help they really did a number on us and we are hard working people with 3 small children we cannot afford this loss.
