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.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The contact owns a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. The vehicle is an all wheel drive. Vehicle had a flat tire, and contact used the spare tire that came with the vehicle. After only driving about 5 miles it done damage to the vehicle it broke some of the gears in the transfer case, and potentially could cause damage to the viscous couplings. They had to replace the transfer case. Manufacturer stated that the district manager was going to contact him. However currently they were telling him that the case had been closed because warranty expired. The warranty was not an issue because the spare tire would cause damage to the vehicle if used on this vehicle.
