This is a followup to this thread in the 5th gen forum...which should really be in the 4th gen forum: http://forum.chryslerminivan.net/sho...-investigation
More than 100 complaints have been received by federal safety regulators about stalling in older Chrysler minivans, an analysis by the Reuters news agency finds.
The stalling problems center on 2004 to 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country minivans.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported earlier this week that it is taking a look at the stalling in the minivans after refueling.
While NHTSA says it was acting on eight complaints on the 2007 Grand Caravan, Reuters says it search of the database turned up many others. The first complaints starting arriving in 2008 and have continued since.
One complaint uncovered by Reuters says "My 2004 Chrysler Town & Country minivan stalls every time I get gas." It goes on: "One time I was turning the corner and my car died and I could not steer the vehicle and ended up on the wrong side of the road ... I have really come to dread when I need gas."
No accidents or injuries have been reported.
Finally something is being done or investigated about this issue. It has been a known problem with the latter half of the 4th gens, with many people, including myself having experienced the issue more than 10 times in the past couple years. Lets hope this turns into an actual recall.
