      I would not hesitate going with 2012 SEL over any 2009-10 trim package if the 2012 is only a few thousand more. My only hesitation would be dependent on the comparable price of a 2013 Dodge GCV with...

      You do know it's a Chrysler, right? I've seen it said that it's 85% Chrysler and 15% VW, and if that's the case the VW portion is all body, styling, trim, interior colors that sort of thing. It's...

      Just curious, but where did you hear this? I think most folks here have been operating under the assumption that the recall involved replacing the WIN module. The 1st recall notice mentioned a 2nd...

      So with the TDIs (my other car) seems like most folks remove the EGR and clean it and reinstall it. Is that not a reasonable option with these Chrysler van motors, or is it just the part is cheap...

      You could try retrieving a code by key cycling. Cycle the key between On>ACC three times and land on the On and the computer is supposed to list any thrown codes where the odometer shows the miles...

      No idea, but wonder if it could be connected to the WIN module recall. That module is interconnected with other systems (e.g., AC) so it affects way more than just ignition.

      Have you tried a...

      Unless he blew the head gasket when he overheated the motor after the coolant leak resulting (possibly) in oil migration to the coolant, no? I know the 3.8L motors are known for sudden onset of...

      Are you saying the seat back is folded down on top of the seat bottom, so the seat is not usable (either stowed away or for regular seating facing forward)? Does the seat motor sound like it's...

      Looking at the specs listed for '09 SEL Premium on cars.com, the phraseology is a little confusing.

      I don't see how this has much to do with Chrysler (other than inability to get the parts quickly) or minivans at all. Your dealership screwed you and VWoA assisted by not standing up to properly...

      Disconcerting story, 58. Both that the transmission will crap out with little/no warning. And that it's $4300 to replace. Transmissions have gotten insanely high priced, IMO. I understand with a...

      Awesome news. I love to see when a company steps up to do the right thing. It seems with VWoA that it's sometimes a crapshoot whether they will help or tell you to go pound sand.
