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.

2006 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #3

I have a 2006 Dodge Caravan slx about a month after I bought it the sliding door on the drivers side stopped working I took it in and they fixed it right away. In June 2010 my van door the same one that was broke from before came open when I was driving then it happened again a few days later. I reported this to Dodge and Chrysler Corp. And they are refusing to fix this problem because no one else has had this problem with there van and reported it. I am worried that one of my four children are going to fall out the door and get hurt or even killed because of this problem I would like to see Dodge fix my van because it isn't my fault the door is broke and it is a safety problem.

Power sliding door failure on 2006 Dodge Caravan. After regular use of the power sliding door feature it no longer functions correctly. It stops after opening 6-8 inches and does the same when closing. This happens every time the door is operated and is a concern to me since I have small children that could become stuck between the door. The part that has most likely failed is the wire harness assembly with breaks in the wires. I believe this repair would cost around 300 dollars.
