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

problem #3

Sep 012004

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles


Gas leak at the top, before the overflow when filling. Have a shop checked, thinking there was a leak in the gas tank. The shop found no leak. Brought to local dealer to find if there is or was any recall that I missed. Dealer said that thre is none and if I want it fix I have to pay for it. I strongly recommend a recall.

Fuel was pouring out from vehicle when tank was first being filled with gasoline. Dealer has replaced O-ring 2 times/ a filler tube and gas tank once within 2 years. A private repair shop also replaced O-ring once, but defect keeps occurring.
