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.

2003 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #2

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Noticed that around September 1, 2004 that the designed seat of the second row seats hinge in the front seat locks on the back. When locking the seat it appears that they are lock. But, in reality, they are not locking in the back of second row seat. There is no indication that the seat is not properly locked. When children are in the seat and its is not locked it will rotate forward. The row in front features a hard plastic handle that if the children would hit would cause even more damage when not properly locked down. This happened with the consumer's child in the vehicle, and the entire weight of the seat was on him. He hit the back front seat, and this broke teeth. Contacted manufacturer and they just complaint.

The rear passenger side seat lunged forward. As a result, consumer sustained a concussion and a black eye. The seat was left reclined by the owner's daughter before incident occurred. As consumer tried to retrieve some items from the rear driver side, consumer leaned across the seat and pulled the lever to raise it from the reclined position. As the seat lunged forward, it hit the consumer's head forcing it to hit the handle of the front passenger seat.
