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 #2

Caravan 4-cyl

  • 55,000 miles


When attempting to fill the tank with gas, even on near-empty tank, gas pump clicks off and gas spills out and runs down the body of the car onto the ground. Dodge issued a recall for durango and other Chrysler vehicles for a faulty check valve in the tank but not for my car (Caravan). I'd like to lodge a complaint. Dodge tells me that fixing this problem will cost me $1720 for a new gas tank. I believe Dodge should fix it for me because it is dangerous to have gas spill out when attempting to fill.

The cap can't be "cross-threaded", there was so much pressure it in the process of blowing up....thank god it didn't! please help?
