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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 252006

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Went to dealer to have the brakes fixed and mechanic told me there was a problem with the lower control arm pivot bolt, and if I didn't have it fixed I could lose control of the vehicle. He said it was a major safety issue. This affected the entire engine cradle. I was told there was a recall for this on the 2001 model. But this vehicle was not included in the recall due to VIN. After contacting daimer Chrysler told me the same thing, and said there was nothing they would do about it and suggested I should hold on to my receipt because one never knows when there may be a recall in the future? they referred me to jonathan sanders, senior staff of global relations and he said there is nothing daimer Chrysler would do because my vehicle wasn't in the recall even though my vehicle is a 2001 and is experiencing the same problem as the other vehicles that were recalled. I of course am having the mechanic fix the vehicle for obvious safety reasons.
