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.

2001 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #2

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

In the 3rd row of seats in my 2001 Dodge minivan, a passenger left the seatback in a semi-reclined position. I leaned in to release the seatback to full upright. When I engaged the release, the seatback snapped forward with great speed and force all the way down until it rested on the seat. In its path downward, it failed to stop in the upright position. The top of the seat struck full in my face, breaking my glasses, causing a bruise and abrasion to my nose. In subsequent tests, the seatback always failed to stop in the upright position.

Rear seat anchors(isofix) stick upward from seat back. Anchors interferes with child seat. Took vehicle to dealer, and dealer bent anchors downward.
