It is advisable to always be on the lookout for recalls affecting your vehicle's model. DoNotPay offers a straightforward way to update yourself on the latest recalls and how to get the required precautions and repairs installed on your Dodge Grand Caravan.

What Happened With Dodge Grand Caravan Recalls?

There have been a number of recall notices given for a few generations of the Dodge Grand Caravan over the years. We'll look at the most recent notices going back such as:

Airbags Recall: Recall No. 20V396000Chrysler is currently recalling the 2008 – 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan models. Its recall date was given on 7th July 2020. These cars may contain a missing or loose brand emblem in the steering wheel's center. When the driver's airbag deploys in the case of a crash, the loose emblem or its securing nuts within the airbag module may be launched as projectiles, injuring the driver.
Vantage Fuel System Recall: Recall No. 20V278000Starting May 2020, Vantage Mobility International, LLC, is in the process of recalling various Vantage-modified Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles released between 2016 and 2019. The reason for the recall is the possibility of deterioration of the fuel pump gasket. The fuel leak that ensues, when exposed to an ignition source, may cause a fire.
Seats Recall: 19V759000  In October of 2019, Chrysler issued a recall for various 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles. There were several risk points associated with this recall notice.

There's a possibility the second-row bench and second-row bucket seats’ outboard rear seat strikers’ welds may fail in the event of a front-impact crash. The third-row bench seats' front outboard seat strikers are vulnerable to a rear-impact crash. Furthermore, the second-row bucket and bucket seats may fail to withstand the required loads. What all this means is that should the seat strikers prove problematic, the seat belt or the seat itself may not restrain the occupant as required. This significantly increases the risk of injury.

How Do I Make a Claim for Dodge Grand Caravan Recalls?

The whole process can be broken down into two general steps:

Get the Recall Notice

Your car's manufacturer, Chrysler (FCA US LLC), or Vantage Mobility (manufacturers of wheelchair vehicle conversions) will issue you your Dodge Grand Caravan's recall notice. Dealers or repair facilities can then carry out the mentioned repairs or part replacements.

If, for some reason, your car's manufacturer doesn't send you the notice, then here are the other ways to keep yourself informed about the much-needed alterations:

  • You could see a recall notice in the media concerning your vehicle's make and model.
  • You can also go online and search for any recall notices issued for your vehicle model.

Schedule the Repairs

After learning your vehicle is due for a recall, the next step is to set an appointment for repairs or replacements to be made. You'll then have to schedule this date with an authorized dealer or a private mechanic.

With an authorized dealer, there's a good chance the replacements or repairs will be installed without any cost to the vehicle's owner. If you decide to go the private mechanic route, you may have to foot the bill yourself.

Who is Eligible for Dodge Grand Caravan Recalls?

If your car's manufacturer is willing to do these replacements and repairs at no cost to you, then you can be sure you'll have to satisfy a few eligibility conditions. Those who satisfy alterations as the recall details are:

  1. Dodge Grand Caravan owners who bought their vehicles while new.
  2. Grand Caravan owners who made the purchase from a recognized and authorized dealer.
  3. Owners who made a private purchase of the car but typically use the services of authorized dealers for repairs.

Do I Immediately Get a Recall if I Report Issues?

If you experience problems with your Dodge Grand Caravan, first check if there's a recall issued for that specific safety-related defect. If you don't have a recall listed for your vehicle's malfunction, you can either contact the manufacturer or NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) for the recall.

A safety defect is recognized as a problem that poses a risk to motor vehicle safety and exists in a group of vehicles of similar design or manufacture. You'll have to provide sufficient information and evidence about the car make, model year, model, manufacturer, plus the affected part, system, or assembly.

If there's a frequency of similar problems being reported by different drivers, then an investigation will be launched. After this happens, a recall can then be issued.
