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

Sep 262012

Caravan LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


This vehicle looks great on the outside, however, it is a rough ride. It does not drive smoothly and the engine jumps and it feels as if the car shifts gears multiple times as you drive. When you get to a stop sign or a red light, the engine would just shut off with no warning. It is scary and dangerous for all passengers in the vehicle. I have made numerous complaints to the mechanic/ owner and he constantly replies, he does not see a problem with the vehicle, so he doesn't know what is wrong with it. I am now returning this vehicle back to the mechanic for the 3rd time since I've gotten it last month, and I am in need of a reliable and dependable vehicle that I can drive around in with my children safely. I need your help!!! Please!!!

Caravan 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission

For 3, yes THREE years this van would jerk while driving, and stall out while running the A/C, mechanics never found a thing wrong with it, this year the motor BLEW and after having the motor REPLACED....its doing THE SAME THING, stalling, jerking, wont go above 10-15 mph, it wont move, all the fluids are fine, I'm wondering if this is just because its a dodge. How am I going to sell it if it doesn't work and there's no solution and nobody knows why its doing what its doing?
