Have A 2012 caravan with break problems like many. They are locking up. this is not a wear issue. the wear is a result of the faulty parts. I won't mention the added wearon drivetrain and fuel. Do you guys see any recall in the works. Dodge is not stepping, up to the plate if they are not resolving this. hopefully nobody gets killed while they spin there wheels.

My Grand Caravan 2010 have all of the same problems listed for the 2012 model but no recall on the 2010. I am scared to drive this van.

Do you drive a 2012 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
