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 hood of my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan is rotting to the extent that it will soon reach the hood latch. There is no other rust on the van, which leads me to believe it is a defective hood. No action has been taken.

Have been advised that two 2001 models tested by the insurance institute for highway safety have shown a crack and / or weakness in this fitting. 2002 models have been modified and do not show signs of weakness / crack. Chrysler doesn't plan to recall at this point. Why not"?" this is a serious safety hazard.
