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

Dec 282006

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles


- the contact has a 2004 Dodge Caravan with an odometer reading of 68000 miles when the spare tire would not release. The contact experienced a flat, and when he used the wrench to crank down the spear for the first time, the tire would not release. The contact stated that he even used a crowbar to help loosen the tire that did not work, so he had to drive on the flat tire to get help. The contact took the car to the dealer, who told him that he needed a new spare tire hoist assembly. The contact also called the manufacturer, and was told the car was out warranty and they would not cover the cost of the repair. Updated 02/06/07.
