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

Caravan Sport 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 114,000 miles


Where to start...this vehicle has been a nightmare since it hit 100k. We currently have 140K and we are about to replace our radiator for the third time! We have also had a number of problems with swaybar links (replaced 3 times under warranty), had to rebuild the transmission at 105k, and the ABS and emergency Brake light has been on for 4 years and we were told its 600 to have it fixed. Also, the van has a mind of its own the doors lock on their own sometimes locking you (and your keys) out! Every bump seems to rattle the whole chasis. The only features we like are the removable seats for storage and built in child seats. If you own one I suggest you sell it before 100k, if you dont own one..stay away!

Can anyone help me with a solution? My caravan is leaking coolant. it is not the radiator or the water pump. it is coming from the pipe rear of the water pump to the heater hose.
