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.

2001 Dodge Grand Caravan. The consumer states the ABS warning light came on twice. Also, the master cylinder went out. It has been replaced three times. The ABS sensor has been replaced on the back wheels twice. Nearly everything on the brake system had to be replaced.

Started 2001 Grand Caravan ex after shopping run, ABS and traction control check lights remained on. Pulled over twice and restarted, same lights stayed on. Vehicle had 26,078 miles on it when this occurred. Checked brake fluid level, O.K. luckily for our family, the vehicle still had enough brake pedal pressure, though compromised (squishy, not firm, secure and controlled as it was prior to the occurrence), and the brakes could still be used to stop vehicle. Check the vehicle again after a few hours(checked brake fluid again, ABS fuse checked-out O.K.,started vehicle)no change. No change the next day.

Today, while driving our Dodge Grand Caravan, my wife applied the brakes. They made a grinding noise, and the ABS light came on. The car has slightly over 16,000 miles and this is the third time that this has occurred. The first was when the vehicle was 9 months old with 5 600 miles on it. The second was when the vehicle was 23 months old with 14,612 miles on it. Today, in liess than 2 months and 2000 miles it has occurred again. We are worrired that there is a design defect with the braking system on this vehicle.
