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 #4

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles

The front tire on the van started losing air. I checked to see where the leak was and found two cracks in the wheel that were leaking. There is no sign of impact on the wheel and the cracks are not parallel to the bead. The cracks run 90 degrees from the wheel bead. These are the 17 inch chrome wheels. No damage caused but I will have to replace the wheel at a quoted cost of $625. I have not checked the other wheels yet.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,800 miles
The consumer observed deep impressions on the tread of tire located on the front drivers side. The tire deflated becasue of a nail. The consumer took the vehicle to a dealer to buy a new tire. Goodyear did allow a $30 adjustment for the defect. This occurred when the tire had 25000-30,000 miles on it. The second incident occurred on the passenger front tire. The consumer's wife was driving on a paved highway road in rainy conditions when she began to experience steering difficulties and a shimmy in the steering column. The consumer inspected the vehicle and noted there was a large bulge on the sidewall of the tire. The vehicle was not driven after this was noticed. Overnight the tire went flat. There was 30-35,000 miles on the tire at time of failure. The consumer took the tire off the vehicle and took the tire to dealer. Dealer did not have another tire to replace with so the vehicle is currently awaiting a spare. Consumer had to await for a tire for the first failure as well. Goodyear, Eagle, size 215/65R16. Eagle ls. These tires were purchased through the dealership from where the vehicle was purchased.

  • Automatic transmission

Michelin MX4 tires on 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan sport, vehicle has only 31,840 miles on it and tires thread are worn severely and metal from radial is exposed. I already had to replace 1 tires because of side thread worn, this now makes 3 (1st tire replaced under 25,000 miles. This is a real safety issue for our family vehicle and action should be taken.
