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.

Well I bought this van brand new when it has 32000 miles it broke the front crank seal. I took it to the dealer and has warranty on it they fix it. Now it has 72000 miles and broke again the front crank seal. Right now I don't know what I can do because I don't have warranty on it. I been searching and I found a lot of people having the same problem. If this is the case the dealer should fix this problem for free, because it came bad manufacture problem.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Caravan. The contact stated that while driving 45 mph, he heard a loud knocking noise. The vehicle was inspected by a certified mechanic, who diagnosed that the motor needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but offered no assistance because the vehicle was no longer under warranty. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileages were 66,000.

Caravan

  • 30,941 miles
I am currently the owner of a 2007 Dodge Caravan. On March 8,2010, I noticed oil gushing from the bottom, right hand corner of my 2007 Dodge Caravan. I immediately drove it to the nearest garage to have it looked at. At this point I only had 30,941 miles on the vehicle the repair technician told me I had a blown cam seal. I contacted Chrysler to see if I was still under warranty. Chrysler informed me that my warranty was three years or 36,000 miles and that my warranty had expired on December 6, 2010. The garage replaced the camseal, the head gasket, the timing belt, and the oil pan seal. Less than a month later I had another oil leak in the same area. I drove it back to the same garage that I took it to last time. This time they looked for the underlying cause of my problem. They took out the oil pan and the oil pump and took a look at the crankshaft. The crankshaft was badly dug into and it appeared to be defective straight from the factory. Additionally, there was a defective thrust bearing on the crankshaft. This, they informed me, was causing the crankshaft to wobble or "walk" thereby busting the seal on the oil pump. The garage also informed me that the engine on my mini-van is also the same one that Dodge put into the neon and the neons were having the same problem. The particular engine in question is a 2.4L DOHC. The garage ordered an after market crankshaft kit and replaced my crankshaft. As a result of both visits to the garage, I have had to spend a total of $1,691.77 to have my vehicle fixed.
