2004 Dodge Grand Caravan Notes

Bold items are warranty work. I'm glad I have 7/70 power train on this thing. They dropped the 7/70 in 2005. I feel bad for those folks.

Traded this van in in January 2012 for a Sienna.  This will likely be the last Chrysler product I buy as at 8 years old with 80,000 miles on it, it was starting to rust in the rear wheel wells.   The rust started between to pieces of sheet metal (rusting from the inside out).   The premature rust the last straw with this van.
