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.

If the van is really low on gas and I fill it up completely, when I leave the station, by the first or second time I stop or really slow down the van will die. It must be filled completely though. I have been a couple places to get it checked out but can't find a problem. I try and make it die on me now before leaving the parking lot.

I have a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with only 50000 miles on it. While driving the vehicle, the gauges on the dashbord will intermittenly start blinking off and on the speedometer bounces from left to right. The gas gauge bounces from empty to full. Sometimes the car's ignition kills while driving. The electronic doors will not open or close with using the remote or manually. I have also smelled smoke from time to time. I have researched this problem via the internet and have discovered that alot of people have this same complaint with there Dodge grandcaravan. In these vehicles the body control module seem to be the culprit. The failure occurs everytime I have driven the vehilce since 10/2009. I have my vehicle at a Dodge dealership who is fixing everything but the problem. I fill like I am being scammed. I am sure that this is not the first time that the dealership has seen this problem.

Today after I loaded up my family into my 2005 Dodge Caravan I started to drive off to head to the store. After driving a couple of feet I realize that I have a flat. While I was loosening the lugnuts so I could take off the tire, two of the bolts that held the tire in place snapped while they were still attached to the lugnut. I also noticed that was already a bolt that was missing from the drum. Therefore, now I only have 2 working bolts on the drum and both of them look pretty worn. The vehicle I have was purchased not even 2 years previous from a car dealership. I was also told by a friend of the family who owned a 2003 that they had the same problem with the bolts on their tire drum.
