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

Dec 142004

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Driving in normal winter conditions, less than 2 inches of snow, not less than 20 degrees in weather, my antilock brakes froze up, causing me to spin out. Luckily I did not hit anything or crash. $800 worth of damage, brake lining froze to drum. Had to replace brake pads, drums, wheel bearings in both rear wheels.

Cooling fans sometimes (mostly in cool weather) run continously. Fans come on when coming to a stop.I brought the van in to the dealer to have it checked and the service manager said there wasn't any thing wrong. My front brake pads wore out at 10,000 miles on 9/11/2001. Brake pads were again replaced on 12/26/2001 with appr. 16,000 miles on my speedometer.
