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.

problem #2

Caravan LX 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles


If you ship a vehicle like the Caravan on military orders overseas, say goodbye to your kids college fund... Between purchasing a new engine for it, shipping and handling, installation, and labor, easy we are talking about 5,000 british pounds (making it a grand total of over 10,000 dollars (not to mention that the vast majority of British Mechanics are clueless about American Vehicles).

problem #1

Caravan Sport 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 138,000 miles

I have had this vehicle for 5 plus years and it's been one thing after another with it. from module replaces, starter replacement, exhaust system replace half shaft 2 times and now the engine went south after 138000 miles. This is the first time I have ever had a car that had that many issues with less than 150000 miles on it. Not sure I would ever purchase another Dodge.
