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

Landmark Dodge realigned the front end and replaced both calipers during a three month timespan. This did not eleminate the problem. I contacted the manufacture, and was asked to take the vehicle to champion crysler for a second opinion. I did this. They told me that the alignment was way out of specfications for this vehicle and they reset it to sepcs. I then was asked to test the vehicle to see if they had made a change. I did this. While testing the vehicle a large Ford pickup pulled out in front of my wife. She hit the brakes and the wheels locked and our vehicle made a 90 degree right turn without her even turning the steering wheel. At this point I returned the vehicle to champion crysler and refused to drive it any longer. My family's safety is more important to me than to let them ride in this defective vehicle.
