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.

We got into our 2001 Dodge Caravan and started to drive it and noticed that there was a rattling noise in the front passenger side of the suspension. I pulled the van over and noticed the passenger side strut was up through into the engine compartment! I believe the housing is rusted through, which allowed the strut to poke all the way out.

I recently had to take my 2001 Caravan in for servicing at charapp Dodge North (natrona heights, pa 15065)and I had a $100 deductible. The mechanic servicing my vehicle told me that I had a bad sway bar link and bushings, which required him to replace the bushing - sway eliminator and the link-sway eliminator. I feel this could not be correct as my vehicle is a 2001 and these parts should not have worn out as soon as they did. I have two friends with the same year vehicles but one is a Dodge and the other is a Chrysler and they are experiencing the same problem I did and we all bought our vehicle within a month and a half of each other. I feel I should not have had to pay for this repair because I believe the parts to be defective coming from the assembly line from where these vehicles were built.
