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.

I have a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan that has had headlight troubles for nearly two years. When you turn the van on, only the right headlight turns on. When you turn the headlights on, only the left headlight turns on. When you turn the brights on, only the right headlight turns on. Always, only one light at a time. We have replaced about three different switches and we still can't seem to find the trouble.(no, it isn't the bulb). This has gone on long enough. Even the dealer can't seem to find the trouble and it needs to be recalled for this problem.

Vehicle generates excessive wind noise in the cocpit at speeds above 50mph. Noise is focused around windshield area and is loud enough to obscure radio and conversations in a normal volme by passengers. On extended travel, noise is quite annoying to drive and passengers and increases fatigue factor. This creates a safety problem. The majority of my driving is at highway speeds. With this noise level, I would consider the van unacceptable.
