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 first year I purchased the vehicle, I had to take it in for fuel issues, paid out $50 the first time for deductible, then the second year $150 same problem, fuel, had to have a new fuel pump, now I have having more fuel problems which means I will have to pay out $250 being this is my third year. Now I was reading online that there have been some recalls for this same problem on Dodge Caravan. I would like to know if there is anything I can do, to have Y problem looked at and fixed without coming out of my pocket a 3rd time for the same issue. When I purchased the veh from drive time, they stated they did an all around inspection. Also, my passenger side sliding door will open on its own even while I am driving sometimes. And it wont latch on until the 3rd or 4th try.

Ruptured fuel line spraying gasoline onto muffler. The fuel lines are plastic and are attached to the fuel filter and are replaced together as a unit. The plastic line had a quarter inch rupture. This filter had less than 30K miles and was about a year old. Why does Chrysler use plastic fuel line? I do not know the cause - a weak inferior plastic or a sharp stone perhaps. Either way, it does not matter. I have never seen a hard plastic used for fuel delivery. The old style rubber fuel hoses would be much better and safer. I am thinking this plastic is used because of the flex fuel option but I am not a mechanic. I am glad my vehicle did not catch fire. I was lucky. After replacing the filter with a new one from Napa one of the fuel lines would not stop leaking. I had to return it for another non leaking filter. Because of this I am also concerned about the quality of replacement parts as well.

Nothing unusual leading up to this. Had a check engine light. When we brought it to the dealer, there was a small leak on the fuel filler neck. The car was only 5 years old and is washed, garaged every night, and taken care of. Fuel necks should not be failing in such short time.

When refueling, I slightly bumped the gas door and it broke in two. Not a real big deal, but it is made of plastic and it broke very easily. Not a great design. Have there been more complaints of this problem? thank you

I only have 25,000 miles on my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan. (1) the sway bar links were repaired twice, and parts are on back order for a third repair. (2) I had to replace the front brakes after only 14,000 miles, and they are half gone already at 25,000 miles, plus the rear brakes have to be replaced. (3) the engine has a flat spot during acceleration, and I get about 11 miles per gallon in the city, and about 15-16 miles per gallon on the highway. It stated it got 18 miles per gallon in the city, and 24 miles per gallon on the highway. (4) the transmission makes a moaning sound; the power steering was leaking fluid, (5) I had to replace the battery the first summer I had it, the anti lock brakes went out early this summer (6) the driver?S side window would not roll up when we were at bear country usa surrounded by bears (7) the shift gear lever sometimes slips from drive to neutral, and I have had that looked at twice (8) the cruise control went out last summer
