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 had the brake pads changed twice and at just a little over 20K I had the brakes and rotors replaced.

problem #4

Grand Caravan Sport V6 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,000 miles

Like the lady that complained in # 3 we have had to change the front brake pads rotars about every 2000 to 3000 miles. It is always the same problem. We have spent extra money and changed the calipers also and this didnot help either. I only drive this around town and we bought the van brand new and it has been nothing but problems. I only have 57000 miles on this van to day and we are having to redo the brakes again and we changed them last at 55000. How can we get this problem lookin into??? It drives me crazy. I use this for daycare and depend on it. If i had to estimate we have probably changed the brakes 3 to 4 times a year since 2004. They need to correct this matter and soon!!!!!

Grand Caravan Sport 3.3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles

I wanted to say that it's not that I replaced the brakes once, but 5 times now. I've paid 200-500 each time. Usually the repair shop seems surprised to hear me tell them that I was just there 10 or 15 k miles ago, but sure enough, new brakes every time. I've been to 3-4 different brake shops. They said that it must just be the vehicle.
