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

Sep 202004

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,000 miles


The vehicle had an on-going problem when applying the brakes. The pedal goes to the floor and pulsated. This resulted in extended stopping distance. The dealership indicated to the consumer that the problem was the master cylinder, but no parts available at that time. The consumer was too nervous to drive the vehicle. There was no prior warning and or the brake light did not indicate that there was a problem.
