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

Oct 092004

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,199 miles


The van lost steering fluid and the steering wheel made a funny sound when it was turned. The dealership indicated that the steering cooler hose had split. The cooler hose split due to the defect described in the power steering fluid leakage recall 04V386000, but this model was not part of the recall. There was a shudder coming from the steering wheel when sittin gstill and moving the steering wheel from side to side.
