What should I do if my 2014 Dodge Caravan sliding door won't open?

I just bought a used 2014 Dodge Caravan not long ago, but I’m already having issues with the sliding door! What should I do if my 2014 Dodge Caravan sliding door won't open?

We’re sorry to hear you’re already having issues with your new-to-you minivan! Sadly, sliding door issues have been a huge problem for the 2014
Dodge Grand Caravan
. After the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into the 2016 Grand Caravan (along with the 2016
Chrysler Town and Country
) for sliding door issues, a Chrysler class action lawsuit followed.
The lawsuit includes 2013-2020 Dodge Grand Caravan that accuses Chrysler of equipping their minivans with a defective door latch system. Considering that 2014 Grand Caravans are also included in this lawsuit, we recommend that you take your minivan to your local Chrysler dealer or even to a mechanic if you want to fix your sliding door as soon as possible!
To prepare for future repairs, you may decide that
you need mechanical breakdown insurance
—an insurance add-on that covers repairs that aren’t caused by an accident. This coverage will come in handy especially if your extended car warranty is no longer in effect. Check out your
car insurance
policy to see if this upgrade is right for you.
