Summary of Complaint

I was sitting in my van, with it running at Sonic, and i started smelling a terrible smell. I thought the smell was coming form outside so I rolled up the windows and the van started filling up with smoke. My daughter looked at the back seat and noticed the back charger, USB, 12 volt area was the source of smoke and we got out immediately, saw that it was on fire from the inside, it could be seen through the charger, the usb ports, and the 12 volt plug because there was nothing plugged in. My daughter threw a pop on it to put it out and we called my husband to come help us. He pulled the cover off and all of the wires were melted all of the way down the inside of the panel. I have seen recalls for previous year models for this same type of occurrence, but not for this year model. I am thankful my other children and grandson were not in the car in the backseats where the fire started. This area is on the gas tank side as well and that was a scary thought as i was supposed to travel tomorrow in this van.

VIN: 2C4RDGEG2HR****

Summary of Complaint

The drivers side rear passenger sliding door is stuck in lock mode. The locking mechanism is stuck shut and cannot be unlocked either manually or with the remote unlock button. Therefore the door is stuck closed and can not open. It’s dangerous that any backseat passenger cannot exit the vehicle through that door if they need to. Also, the passenger side door does not lock or unlock with the remote; it only locks and unlocks when the locking mechanism on the door is pushed manually. When the alarm is turned on with the remote, pulling this door open manually sets off the alarm when the door is pulled open. There were no warning lights or indicators set off prior to these issues. These issues manifested in September 2020.

Summary of Complaint

OIL FILTER ADAPTER/OIL COOLER. WHILE GETTING THE TRANSMISSION REPLACED THAT HAD A TOTAL FAILURE AT 110,000 MILES WHILE ENROUTE TO GET THE RECOMMENDED 120,000 MILE SERVICE, THE DEALER INFORMED US THAT THE OIL COOLER HAD A DECENT SIZED CRACK NEAR THE BASE AND REQUIRED REPLACING. THEY TOLD US THE COULD ORDER THE PART BUT WOULDN'T KNOW WHEN IT WOULD BE IN BECAUSE THERE WERE 14,772 UNITS ON BACK ORDER. HE SEARCHED THE SYSTEM AND FOUND 1 AVAILABLE 2 HOURS AWAY. I LEFT THE DEALER AND DRIVE STRAIGHT THERE AND IT TOO WAS GONE WITH NO PROJECTED ARRIVAL OF MORE. I WAS TOLD IF I KEPT THE OIL TOPPED UP AND KEPT AN EYE ON IT, IT WOULD BE OK AND NOT CAUSE ENGINE DAMAGE. I HAVE NOT SPENT ENOUGH ON OIL TO KEEP IT TOPPED UP THAT I COULD HAVE PAID FOR THE PART OF IT WE'RE AVAILABLE. ONLINE AFTERMARKET SOURCES ARE SOLD OUT WITH NO IDEA WHEN THEY'LL GET MORE. AS OF 09:30, 15 MARCH 2021, THE PARTS DEPARTMENT OF LANDERS CDJR IN BOSSIER CITY, LOUISIANA CONFIRMED THAT THERE ARE NOW OVER 15,000 UNITS ON BACK ORDER AND WHEN REQUESTING TO ORDER, THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE AN ESTIMATED WAIT TIME. WENT DIRECT WITH DODGE AND WAS TOLD THAT THEY WOULD 'ESCALATE THE REVIEW TO TRY AND GET THE PART TO THE DEALER'. NOT SURE HOW THAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN THEY DON'T HAVE A SUPPLY TO MEET THE DEMAND. EACH DEALER I'VE CALLED IN A 6 HOUR RADIUS FROM MY LOCATION HAS SAID IT SHOULD BE A RECALL WITH IT BEING SUCH A FAULTY DESIGN OF PLASTIC RESTING DIRECTLY ON TOP OF THE MOTOR BUT THAT FIAT WON'T DO THAT. MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS THE OIL LEAKING DOWN, SPRAYS ON TO THE EXHAUST CREATING THE POTENTIAL FOR A FIRE HAZARD.

I RECENTLY PURCHASED A USED 2017 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN IN NOV 2020. I WENT IN FOR AN OIL CHANGE AND WAS INFORMED OF A SMALL OIL LEAK. THE DEALERSHIP SAID THAT THE OIL FILTER ADAPTER HOUSING NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THEY ARE UNABLE TO GET THE PART AT THIS TIME SAID THEY ARE NOT SURE WHEN IT WILL COME IN. MEANWHILE I AM DRIVING IN A VAN THAT IS STILL LEAKING AND TOLD JUST TO CHECK IT WEEKLY AND TO IT OFF IN THE MEANTIME. I'M NOT SURE IF YOU CAN HELP OUT IF I SHOULD DIRECT THIS TO YOU OR SOMEONE ELSE. I SAW THIS INFO ON NHTSA.GOV. ANY GUIDANCE HOW TO REPORT THIS ISSUE WOULD HELP. I HAVE SEEN VIDEOS THAT SAY THIS USUALLY OCCURS IF SOMEONE TORQUES THE FILTER TO TIGHT. THIS IS THE FIRST OIL CHANGE SINCE I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE AND THE LAST PAGE THAT DID THE OIL CHANGE WAS THE DEALERSHIP IN OCT 2020. I'M SO FRUSTRATED RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THE WARRANTY THE DEALERSHIP SOLD ME DOESN'T COVER THIS ISSUE. I DON'T KNOW WHEN IT WILL EVEN BE RESOLVED. I DON'T WANT TO RISK THE LEAK GETTING WORSE AND I DON'T CATCH IT OR MY VAN CATCHING ON FIRE. PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN.

Summary of Complaint

I OWN A 2017 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN GT AND MY REAR SLIDING DRIVER SIDE DOOR JUST STOPPED WORKING FOR NO REASON. IT IS LOCKED IN POSITION AND THE DOOR WON'T OPEN. I GOT IN THE VEHICLE ONE MORNING AND WHILE WARMING IT UP I WENT TO OPEN THE DOOR AND IT JUST WOULD NOT OPEN. SO I WENT TO THE DEALERSHIP THAT I PURCHASED THE VAN AT AND THEY CHECKED IT OUT AND TOLD ME THAT THE LEFT SIDE SLIDING DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR IS BROKEN.

Summary of Complaint

COULD MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH. 2017 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN DRIVER'S SIDE SLIDING DOOR WILL NOT UNLOCK. THIS A SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE IT PREVENTS THE PASSENGERS IN THE BACK FROM EXITING QUICKLY IN CASE OF EMERGENCY. IN THE CASE OF PARENTS WITH CHILDREN IN CAR SEATS THEY ARE UNABLE TO GET THE CHILD OUT SAFELY.
