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.

Grand Caravan ES 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 123,300 miles


I plan to get this fixed tomorrow and I'll show the mechanic the posting I found here that mentioned a $95 fix using non-corrosive flexible heating hose instead of the $300 replacement tubing. I hope he can do that.

Grand Caravan Sport 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,000 miles

So I'm driving along in -20 F cold, my three kids and wife in the car, and we get a strong antifreeze smell. Then the heat stops working. I keep an eye on the engine temp and, because of the extreme cold, no overheating. So I get home, pop the hood: no coolant. I pour in some antifreeze, only to see it come gushing out from a hole in the line that goes back to the rear A/C. When I take it to the mechanic, know what he says? "We see a lot of corroded coolant lines on these Grand Caravans." What a surprise. So instead of paying $300 bucks to replace the line, they put in a non-corrosive flexible heating hose for $95. What team of morons engineered these Caravans?
