Summary of Complaint

SHORTLY AFTER WE BOUGHT OUR VEHICLE, WHEN WE WOULD UNLOCK THE DOORS, THE VAN MADE A LOUD BUZZING SOUND. WE HAD IT CHECKED WITH ANOTHER WARRANTY ISSUE AND THEY FOUND NOTHING. THEN, IN DECEMBER, THE PASSENGER SIDE DOOR STOPPED WORKING AND IT WAS LOCKED. IT COULDN'T BE UNLOCKED OR OPENED BY ANY METHOD. LAST WEEK, I SCHEDULED IT TO BE FIXED AT THE DEALER. THEN THE DRIVER SIDE SLIDING DOOR ALSO LOCKED SHUT AND IT'S UNABLE TO BE OPENED. DEALER SAID IT IS THE DOOR ACTUATORS (COVERED UNDER WARRANTY). HOWEVER, SINCE THE ACTUATORS WENT BAD, THE DOOR CANNOT BE OPENED. THE DOORS MUST BE OPENED TO TAKE FOR PANELS OFF TO ACCESS/REPLACE ACTUATORS. THEREFORE, THEY HAVE TO BREAK DOOR PANELS TO ACCESS (NOT COVERED WARRANTY PART). QUICK RESEARCH ONLINE SHOWS ACTUATORS GOING BAD IS VERY COMMON ON MULTIPLE YEARS OF DODGE CARAVANS. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE AS IT RENDERS THE PASSENGERS TRAPPED INSIDE THE VEHICLE, WHICH COULD BE A PROBLEM IN AN EMERGENCY. I FEEL REPLACING THE ACTUATORS SHOULD BE A RECALL AND SHOULD BE DONE ON ALL CARAVANS THAT HAVE THE PARTY THAT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE AN ISSUE. THIS SHOULD NOT BE WARRANTY WORK AFTER THERE IS AN ISSUE ON THAT SPECIFIC VEHICLE.

Summary of Complaint

THE DRIVER'S SIDE SLIDING DOOR IS STUCK IN A LOCKED POSITION. IT WILL NOT UNLOCK WITH THE FOB OR MANUALLY. I HAVE BEEN LIVING WITH THIS HAZARDOUS SITUATION FOR THREE YEARS, ONE YEAR AFTER PURCHASING THE VEHICLE AND THE VEHICLE WAS ONLY TWO YEARS OLD WHEN IT MALFUNCTIONED. I WENT TO A STORE, GETTING OUT OF THE VEHICLE THE DOOR WORKED, AND UPON RETURNING TO THE VEHICLE THE DOOR WOULDN'T BUDGE. AT THE TIME I CALLED MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP TO SEE HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST TO FIX AND THEY WOULDN'T QUOTE ME A PRICE SO I NEVER TOOK IT IN. UPON SOME QUICK RESEARCH ONLINE RECENTLY I REALIZED THIS ISN'T AN ISOLATED OCCURRENCE. APPARENTLY MANY DODGE CARAVAN OWNERS HAVE HAD, SPECIFICALLY THE LEFT DOOR, GET STUCK IN THE LOCKED POSITION PERMANENTLY. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE.

Its a known common problem for the automatic doors to stop working. My driver side back door has stopped working and now is stuck shut where I cannot open. This is a huge safety issue since all exits fo not work and if I was in an accident and needed to get my kids out and that was th only door I was able to use then we would end up dead or in serious condition. This is a very expensive fix and from all the reviews I have read this is a very common problem!!!!

Summary of Complaint

Passenger side rear sliding door stuck in locked position. Unable to open door/unlock door using key fob lock button, key fob door button, console door button, outside door handle, inside door handle. Cannot manually unlock door or unlock using any of the power unlock buttons in the car or on the fob. Door operates correctly right up until it doesn't with no warning. I have an handicapped passenger for this vehicle. He was not in the car, but could have been. Any person would be unable to exit the vehicle from the middle row passenger seat thru that door. If it was a carseat, another individual would have to climb in from another entry point and release the child. If it was my adult son with cerebral palsy, removing him from the vehicle would be arduous and impossible in an emergency situation. Given that passenger vans are often used for ADA persons, this is a serious safety issue and needs resolution.

Summary of Complaint

2016 Dodge Minivan began jerking and attempting to find gears on/about 24 May, 2021. Brought car in to dealership (where car was purchased and serviced for past five years) that evening for a morning assessment. Was told that the transmission pump failed leading to severe transmission damage and a complete rebuild was required. Car was 6 weeks out of warranty (Mar 31, 2021 warranty expiration) and upon research found that certain 2015/2016 minivans were recalled for same issue/faulty transmission pumps. No warning on dashboard took place until the actual damage had occurred.

Summary of Complaint

Rear sliding door locks. The locks on the vehicle have malfunctioned and makes it unsafe for passengers in the rear of the vehicle to exit in an emergency. The driver side door is stuck in the lock position and the door cannot be opened in any way rendering it useless. The actuator on the passenger side has mail functioned as well and cannot be locked/unlocked with the buttons in the vehicle or the fob. This seems to be very common in these vehicles and dodge needs to fix this issue. It is very unsafe as most minivans are purchased for families with children. Heaven forbid the vehicle is involved in a bad accident and the children cannot be removed because the doors are stuck in the locked position
