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.

Caravan 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 268,000 miles

I'm not complaining that much considering the car has over 250,000 miles on it, but one thing led to another. The alternator belt slipped off; no problem. Then when I put it on the belt burned through because it appeared that the alternator wheel was the issue. I took it into the shop and they said that I needed a whole new alternator. Then once I got the alternator in there the battery stopped charging... or so it seemed. I take it in again and the guy replaces the alternator just in case that it was a faulty product. Then he tells me that it's the electrical system, and not the battery. The car has over 250,000 miles on it, but she ran really well up until this string of occurrences.
