Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

98 Dodge Caravan, purchased from dealership: Security system locks up and will not allow the car to start. I was informed by an older mechanic that this problem was common to all Dodge with security systems built since 91. If this is so common why have they not fixed the problem at the source? I took my van in to the dealership for some minor bodywork, when I went to pick it up, it would not start. They tore it apart for two days and basically said, "gosh, I don't know what's wrong." I have been left stranded (15 minutes to 5 hours) about 15 times since I purchased the vehicle. In my job I Transport disabled clients so this is a serious problem.
