on july 19th we lost all brakes on our 1997 dodge caravan. the next day full use of the brakes returned. on july 21st we once again had complete failure of the brakes. we are only owners of this low mileage vehicle. we took the van to tires plus to have the system checked. the only thing found was slight wear on the front brakes. we had them replace the pads but the vehicle still had intermittent brake loss. next the bled the lines again and we had brakes again. we took the vehicle home and drove it for seven days but lost brakes again on the 29th of july. this time the master cylinder was replaced but still brakes were intermittant. right now the van is at jim's dodge country being worked on. this time the claim is that the ride high proportioning valve is defective. we use the van for our children and all the times we have lost our brakes children have been in the vehicle. we have managed to avoid any accidents but we have been lucky. our vehicle is very low mileage and has been well cared for so i think mechanically this needs to be investigated before someone gets hurt.

have had a severe right hand pulling problem under moderate to severe braking. i have brought my vehicle to the dealership at least four times for the same issue but the problem still persists. the problem seems to be worse as the brakes are at their operating temp. when brakes are cold the pulling problem is minimal. prior visits to the dealership has resulted in the replacment of calipers, alignment and proportion valve. eventhough these parts have been replaced the problem still exists. the problem revealed itself as early as 15,000 miles and has persisted intermittantly since that time.

Matthews, NC

my 2002 dodge dakota sport 4x4 antilock brakes don't provide adequate braking. on several occasions, i have had to stop quickly and even at slow speeds the antilock feature releases the brakes long before it should. i took the truck to the local dealer and they said the proportioning valve in the master cylinder was defective and they replaced it. the problem still exists. i don't think the rear brakes are engaging as they should. i've seen similar complaints on your site and feel dodge needs to take a look at these problems because there are too many to ignore. i have had three near misses where the antilock feature of the brakes caused the brakes to release prematurely when i have had plenty of time and distance to stop safely. i have had antilock brakes on several of my previous vehicles but this truck has the weakest brakes i've ever experienced on any car or truck i've owned.*ak
