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.

Vehicle has 37000 miles and has had front brakes replaced (25000 miles) / new driver side power window motor assy. Installed (not under warranty @ cost of $210 +) / front sway bar repaired (not under warrany either) and now the air conditionong is not working.....dealer says it will have to replace the complete system...estimate is for $1,284 plus tax!!!) are you kidding me! I have no faith in the Dodge gran Caravan product. This is a $30K vehicle. It should not be having these kind of issues w/ only 37000 highway miles.

Grand Caravan 4WD

  • miles
The transmission catastrophically failed for the second time on an exit ramp. Fortunately, my wife was able to maintain control of the vehicle. The front barke rotors are warped. My wife was informed by Dodge that this shimmy we were feeling as we applied the brakes was the ABS engaging. After taking the vehicle to another Dodge dealership, we were informed the problem is warped front brake rotors. In addition, because the vehicle has over 12000 miles, we now have to pay for the repairs! the leather seating in the rear is 'delaminating.' (I don't know of a better way to describe it). The rear automatic hatch does not automatically open. This too is a recurring problem.
