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.

Well This problem just started last week but my mom also has a dodge caravan and hers went out around the same time hers is a 2003. Mine is 2002 and my heater only works on high and sometimes it dosn't work at all. Which is really bad when its freezing out side and i cant handle the cold at all. Its Christmas and have no money to get it fix thanks dodge for this problem im not happy at all.

It was easier to buy a third party motor from Autozone; I won't chance a crappy Dodge-Mopar part again.

Caravan SE V6

I heard this is a coming problem with the rans, however don't understand why no recall has been issued, dealer wants to charge me again to fix it. It has only been three months since the last one was installed, I live in VT I am either burning up because the heater only works on high or freezing my ass off to stop sweating. NOT FUN FOLKS!
