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.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #2

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I took my 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan to my local mechanic after hearing noises. He informed me that the strut tower was corroding and the under body was shifting. Further corrosion and movement could collapse the housing and cause a serious accident. Two tsbs were issued on these problems, 23-044-02 and 23-01-97. Dodge says they are not responsible for these problems, even though they are safety issues, since the vehicle is out of warranty. Even the president of daimler Chrysler claims he cannot accommodate my request for a resolution of this safety issue since the car is out of warranty. I guess I have to wait to get into a serious accident resulting in death before they would do something.

Rear heat and air line running under front of van caused rattle. Dealer had van for over 15 days, replaced transmission, most of the dash was pulled out, all kinds of heat shields were removed and problem still returned. Finally after over 12 return trips to dealer they replaced the lines or clamps and problem is gone. Now the problems are showing up from the dash being remove. Radio, speakers, dash lites & rattles.
