It's been a great van until my rear axle broke
March 1, 2019
I loved this van every since I've had it. That is until the axle broke and i found out a recall had already been done. I was driving it when the rear axle broke and what looked like steam was coming from the rear. The tire didn't come off and I managed to get it off the road in the middle of a turn in heavy downtown Chattanooga traffic. I was scared to death! I had it towed to next available exit ( approximately 4 miles ) for a $60.00 fee. A local garage came and took it for repair. That's when I found out about the recall on the damaged axle. It wasn't for the axle however it was for defective bracket installation. Later did I learn about axle corrosion which had caused the axle to break. I'm now having front end problems which make me scared to drive it. I heard about a subframe recall so now I'm off to research that. It's a shame these vehicles have such problems because they really are nice. I'm just scared of it now thinking my rear axle break may have caused other problems like prompting my front end problems. I know this van was driven to Michigan on a regular basis but was purchased in Tennessee. It has front and back air conditioning controls which i found out they all don't when having my air repaired. Over all I've loved it and wish these problems weren't the reason I'm now scared of it.
