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.

2004 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 232006

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,000 miles


: the contact stated at 33,000 miles the front brakes needed to be replaced. When the dealer was contacted they determined that if they had been alert in 12,000 they could have provided assistance. The vehicle was then taken to a independent repair shop who acknowledged that the front brakes were worn out but the rear brakes looked untouched. From the day the vehicle was purchased there was dust on the front wheels. When the vehicle was taken to the dealer for regular maintenance and the dealer was asked about the dust they stated there was nothing wrong.
