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.

The strut tower is defective and fails causing loss of control and possible injury this happens on all new (1995 and newer) body style minivans made by Chrysler/Dodge and driven in climate where salt is used on the roads in the winter. The strut tower requires patches welded to reinforce the corroded area.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles
Shock absorber tower on drivers side of vehicle is seriously deteriorating. Rust is penetrating inner and outer portions of tower causing serious safety concerns about stability and integrity of vehicle suspension.

The car is on it's third transmission. We like the Caravan as a package, but quality is lacking and problematic. The most critical problem is body rust through. The drivers side shock mount tower is rusted through and Chrysler owner relations refusing to fix it. Never mind that the dealers say the problem is prevalent and Chrysler used to fix it but recently stopped paying for (perhaps due to financial and market conditions).

The top of the strut tower, under the hood, is rusting. I haven't approached Chrysler, but will try. I have seen this problem on two minivans and am wondering if Chrysler is doing anything about itl.
