Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING OUR AUTOMATIC 2016 DODGE CARAVAN WHEN IT SUDDENLY LOST POWER AND WOULDN'T ACCELERATE. IT FELT LIKE I WAS ABOUT TO RUN OUT OF GAS. THE MECHANIC HAS SPENT THE LAST 3 WEEKS DOING EXTENSIVE (AND EXPENSIVE) TESTING TO FIND OUT WHAT IS WRONG. HE SAID THAT IT IS GOING INTO 'LIMP MODE' AND IS STUCK IN SECOND GEAR. IT IS UNDRIVABLE AND UNSAFE IN THE CURRENT CONDITION. THE MECHANIC SAID IT IS A 'SHIFT SOLENOID' ISSUE AND THAT WE NEED A BRAND NEW TRANSMISSION, WHICH WILL COST $4000. WE BOUGHT THE VEHICLE BRAND NEW AND HAVE ONLY PUT 73,000 MILES ON IT. SEEMS EARLY TO NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION SO I AM WONDERING IF SOME OF THE POWER TRAIN COMPONENTS USED BY THE MANUFACTURER WERE FAULTY.

Summary of Complaint

THE DRIVER'S SIDE SLIDING DOOR ON OUR 2016 DODGE CARAVAN CANNOT BE OPENED. IT STOPPED WORKING AFTER HAVING THE VEHICLE FOR LESS THAN TWO YEARS. IT CANNOT BE OPENED FROM THE INSIDE OR OUTSIDE WHICH IS A SAFETY CONCERN FOR PASSENGERS TRYING TO GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE QUICKLY IN AN EMERGENCY. WE WERE TOLD THE INTERIOR LATCH WAS BROKEN AND THAT IT WOULD BE EXPENSIVE TO FIX. I BELIEVE THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH THESE VEHICLES AS A NUMBER OF OTHERS HAVE REPORTED THE SAME PROBLEM.
