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.

My AC went out last summer, too... back then my ex-husband (a licensed mechanic) had taken care of it for me, but this summer it's out on me once again... just another issue to add to the list... never buying a dodge again. I can't say that enough.

Grand Caravan V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

We bought this van in 2002 with 32000 miles on it the next summer the a/c quit working. We took it to a Dodge dealership and they replaced the dryer and compressor. The total cost was almost $700. We paid for this out of our pocket since there was no warranty. About 6 months later we received a recall notice about this same problem. We sent in our receipt and within about 10 days we received a check for the amount we were out. This was the good part. Then 3 years later the condenser went bad. It was going to be over $700 to fix this problem. We did not fix it. I finally ordered a condenser and had it installed. It worked good for about 2 weeks then quit again. I had it looked at again and was told the compressor and dryer was bad. If I replace it this will be the 3rd ones in this vehicle. Since it is only 6 years old I find it hard to believe that something is not causing this problem.
