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.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #1

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,200 miles


We purchased a 2002 Grand Caravan sport used. When I picked up the van after getting some recall work done at the dealer, I turned on the air condioner and the motor died during rush hour traffic. They had extended the warranty to 70,000 miles because the dryer in those vans is known to fail and lock up the A/C compressor. I believe this is more that a parts issue since the locked compressor kills the motor which kills the power brakes and power steering. During stopping or in an intersection, this could be quite hazardous. All these dryers and possibly compressors should be replaced before someone is in a major accident.
