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 front of the vehicle started shimmying and the steering wheel. At first, it started at about 55 mph. Now it is doing it at lower and lower speeds. There are pages and pages of complaints with the same issue. It is also very hard to turn the steering wheel when going slow. There is a safety recall for the front suspension and lower control arm. Campaign no 01V152000 but the local dealership said my VIN number was not included. How can you continue to let them sell defective vehicles and not make them recall all affected vehicles? they said the same thing about my Ram truck. There's a recall on it and they said my vehicle was not in the recall, but it has the same issue with the steering column and the air and heat going out. I wish I had read the number of complaints against them on your site and on all the other sites before I bought these lemons. You should also check out www.daimlerchryslervehicleproblems.com/ that is just one of the websites detailing the number of deaths caused by Dodge. I am going to make a complaint against them to the justice department also. Maybe if they investigate, you will finally do something about all these problems.

My 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan sport had its serpentine belt shredded and alternator blown due to snow packed up in the engine. The angle of the undercarriage and the fact that there is no blocker on the underneath to prevent this from occuring made this an expensive ordeal. I was told by daimler/Chrysler that there was no way they could control the snow so this wasn't their problem to fix. When I buy a vehicle, I expect it to work in all weather and road conditions. It should not matter if there is snow on the ground or not. They should be required to prevent this from happening.
