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.

Engine noise turned out to be a leaking power steering rack, requiring replacement at a cost of $866.91. This apparently is a very common problem with this vehicle.

Noticed clunking sound in front of 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with a whining sound. Contacted Chrysler reference # 15812736 after finding issue with power steering rack and sway bar. I believe this to be a manufacturer defect that could result in fatality due to steering defect. Dealer repaired defect at my cost. Total repair cost was $1394.43. The loss of my peace of mind was priceless.
