STRUCTURE: BODY: DOOR: HINGE AND ATTACHMENTS

4/2/2008 - PHILADELPHIA, PA
WHILE DRIVING, THE LEFT REAR PASSENGER DOOR WILL OPEN ON ITS OWN. ALL DOORS ARE LOCKED BEFORE I START THE CAR. THIS FIRST BEGAN LAST JUNE, WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AT APPROXIMATELY 55 MPH. IT HAPPENED ABOUT ONCE EVERY 2-3 MONTHS. NOW IT IS HAPPENING AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK. I AM SCARED BECAUSE I HAVE NO INDICATION PRIOR TO ITS HAPPENING. A LOT OF THE TIME THERE IS NO PLACE FOR ME TO PULL OVER TO CLOSE THE DOOR. THEN I AM AFRAID THE VAN WILL CUT OFF BECAUSE THE OPEN DOOR LIGHT STAYS ON WHILE I AM DRIVING. THIS CAR HAS A LITTLE OVER 88,000 MILES. I BOUGHT THIS CAR USED 2-3 YEARS AGO.

ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING: ENGINE: GASOLINE: BELTS AND ASSOCIATED PULLEYS

11/25/2007 - CORINTH, MS
ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS MY 1999 TOWN AND COUNTRY HAS HAD BELT AND PULLEY PROBLEMS WHERE WHILE RIDING IN BUSY TRAFFIC RAINY DAYS, THE BELT WILL SLIP COMPLETELY OF THE PULLEY ITS ATTACHED TO,CAUSING MY VEHICLE TO COMPLETELY LOSE ALL POWER STEERING ABILITIES RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HEAVY TRAFFIC,PRIOR TO THE BELT COMING OFF THE VEHICLES MAKES THIS LOUD CHIRPING NOISE FOR SEVERAL DAYS PRIOR TO THE BELT COMING OFF. I HAVE HAD SO MANY INCIDENTS WITH THIS SAME PROBLEM,BUT CANNOT AFFORD TO PURCHASE A NEW VEHICLE AS THIS ONE IS STILL NICE AND PAID OFF. EVERY MECHANIC I'VE USED IS TELLING ME THAT THIS IS A KNOW FACTORY ISSUE BECAUSE OF THE NUMBER OF VEHICLES THEY'VE SEEN WITH THE SAME PROBLEMS. AND HAVE SUGGESTED THAT I CHANGE MY VEHICLE FOR SOMETHING WITH LESS AGING PROBLEMS. THIS IS SUCH A PROBLEM. WE CANNOT TRAVEL IN THIS VEHICLE WHEN IT RAINS AS WE KNOW THE BELT OR PULLEY WILL DEFINITELY LEAVE US WALKING AGAIN. IF WATER PUDDLES ARE IN THE STREET IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THE VEHICLE NOT BE DRIVEN THROUGH THEM IN ORDER TO KEEP THE BELT ATTACHED AND NOT LOSE POWER STEERING THAT WILL FOR SURE CAUSE A MAJOR ACCIDENT ON BUSY STREETS. IS THERE ANYTHING MY FAMILY AND I CAN DO TO AVOID BEING KILLED BY THIS PROBLEM? OR IS THERE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE MECHANICALLY TO FIX THIS PROBLEM? WE STILL FAVOR THE TOWN & COUNTRY BUT NOT IN FAVOR OF THE KNOWN MECHANICAL PROBLEM WITH THE BELT AND PULLY SITUATIONS.
