We had a 2008 and the brakes were a constant issue. I did some research but am not getting much info on the refreshed caravan brake system. Anyone know if they addressed the issues or have any info for me? Thanks!

Thanks For the info...our 2008 was riddled with brake issues. I read that the new caravan uses the same brake size so i am concerned...did they ever figure out what was the actual issue on the previous model before the refresh?
i wouldn't say there are no problems with the 2010s, i have talked to many that have had issues, along with our own. We have had to have the front and rear brakes and rotors replaced and it has only 16k on it, the rears went at 7K. And now the rears are vibrating again...rotors warp very easily. next brake job will be done by me. Good luck!!
That is our biggest concern...the brakes. We had 13000 miles and were in need of our 4th aet of brakes and rotors due to warping...so we are very paranoid. We love the freeatures and are so tempted...sigh
We traded our 08 for a new sienna which has been great but doesn't have any of the fun stuff and costs more! We could actually trade it in and not lose money right now...what to do what to do
Ok...think we are going to take the plunge and swap for the new caravan..they are so nice! Just figured I would do a last check my friends to see if anything has changed with the brakes....looks like the new ones are the same size and I was told the pre-refresh were to small for weight...hmmm thanks
Driving down the road this weekend (Memorial Day Weekend) and when I got into town I noticed smoke rolling out of the driver side back tire. Pulled over and realized the caliper had seized up going down the road. Messed around with it for about 10 minutes and it finally released. Drove home and it pulses when applying the brakes. Taking it into the dealer tomorrow, hope they fix it under the 3 / 36,000 warranty. Currently have 33,546 on the van. Love the vehicle, but there is no reason this should of happened. Rotor, caliper and pads all need to be replaced.
