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.

problem #2

May 012015

Caravan V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles


Our Caravan started slipping gears and bumping. We took it to our mechanic and found out a seal was leaking. We paid $1500 to have the transmission rebuilt. Now after 6 months, the problem has happened again. Luckily we are covered under warranty for a year. But I am wondering if this could happen again after another 6 months when it isn't covered under warranty. I have owned Dodge vehicles all my life and this is the first one that has had a transmission problem.

Caravan SE 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission

The transmission was losing fluid and that was causing the transmission to slip. I got that replaced after having the transmission flushed out and a new filter replaced. Since it was causing the transmission to slip as i was driving..
