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.

problem #2

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,070 miles


Front end was making clunking noises since about 24,000 miles, each time I went to the dealer since then it was brought up, but nothing found by them. Finally at 44,070 they looked once again and (now that my warranty was over) they found that my front sway bar links and bushings were bad and replaced. Chrysler did goodwill the repair under extended warranty but I still had to pay $100 for the deductible (which should have been covered under my previous warranty work when I paid the $100 and they didn't do the work until I called Chrysler after I already left and had to go back). I do think it was way too soon to have front end sway bar problems.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,035 miles
I purchased a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan in August of 2005 with 73K miles. Vehicle smelled musty (stagnant water). Three trips to shop to diagnose and fix sway bar link, bushing, strut and strut mount problem to cure a clunking sound on front end. Transmission slips out of gear to neutral at whim. Also, shifts through first 3 gears (automatic) at whim causing vehicle to lurch. However, shop cannot duplicate these problems or the problem with my non working cruise control. At this point, I have spent a lot of money for non-diagnosis. The dealership charges everytime for not being able to find the problem. They say it is fine. I tell them that it is not fine that they just can't find it. I am disturbed by the number of posts re: To sway bar problems and transmission problems and the fact that no one is holding Chrysler/Dodge accountable. Will it take a number of deaths to determine that this is a real safety issue? I implore you to investigate these problems along with the water issue. So far it caused my blower resistor to short out and need replacing. I had no heat in below zero weather.
