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.

THE DODGE PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, BUT BECAUSE WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE THE MAIN PEOPLE IN THE VAN, THEY WILL NOT AND I REPEAT, WILL NOT, DO A RECALL, THEY WOULD RATHER WE BUY A NEW CAR OR PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR SOMETHING THEY KNOW ABOUT. GUESS IF MORE MEN COMPLAINED SOMETHING WOULD GET DONE.

This is a real pain. My inspection is out of date, I've gotten a ticket already. The check Engine light is on and the code revealed was p1698. Midas told me I need a new PCM...$800!!!! Could be a loose connection but I have no idea where to look. This seems to be a common problem with these caravans and should have been a recall!! Anyone with any help for me would be appreciated. I DO NOT want to put much more money into this car!!
