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.

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #1

Grand Caravan ES V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles

THIS WAS THE FIRST OF TWO GRAND CARAVANS WE HAVE PURCHASED NEW, AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE HAD THIS PROBLEM. THE VAN STARTS TO BRAKE FUNNY, LIKE THE FRONT END IS DOING TO MUCH OF THE BRAKING. THEN WITHIN A DAY OR TWO THE RIGHT FRONT CALIPER LOCKS UP AND GRINDS THE BRAKES TO DUST. CHRYSLER SAID THAT THEIR FRONT BRAKES USUALLY LAST BETWEEN 29 AND 35 THOUSAND MILES. I SAID THAN WHY DID MINE ONLY LAST LESS 20 THOUSAND, AND WHY WOULDN'T IT BE COVERED ( AT LEAST PARTIALLY)IF IT IS AS YOU CALL IT "PREMATURE BRAKE FAILURE." WE HAVE HAD THIS SAME PROBLEM ON OUR 2005 GRAND CARAVAN.
