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.

From my understanding Dodge has know about their transmission which is a problem / lemon and has not recalled it even though they are aware of the problem. I feel that the public should be notified of the problem with all their 1999 Dodge Caravans Transmission and their SUV and Trucks. Dodge is stealing peoples money by not recalling their Caravans, Trucks and SUVs with this major but costly problem and by making the consumer pay for the lemon which they manufactured and produced. I hope who ever reads this complaint steers far from a company such as Dodge and The Chrysler Corp. that produce nothing but lemons.

I have a well maintained 1999 caravan. I have had numerous problems with various parts(EEG sensor, brakes, belts, ...) while driving down the road, my transmission literally exploded. It was towed to the dealer. I had a rebuilt transmission put in and had to pay a $500 core charge because the transmission was so badly damaged that it could not be rebuilt. At the same time I had my rusted out power steering pump replaced and my t rod fixed. My bill was a staggering $4000!!! The rep from Chrysler Dodge was not helpful at all. He did insinuate that he has heard other complaints but was not willing to help out. What irritates me is that during the warranty period, I had my transmission serviced. Had I let it go it may have died and been covered under warranty. I apparently maintained my car too well as it's shotty parts expired after the warranty ended!! I will never buy a dodge again!
