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.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,300 miles


Air bag light comes on randomly.airbag faulty. Dealer replaced them at cost $338. Should have been covered with only 44450 miles on 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan. Very dissappointed with this vehicle, always in shop. Engine 4 times, tie rod ends, brake calipers, air condition compressor locked up. Etc.

I took my 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan to a repair shop to have my brakes looked at. They informed me that they did need replaced and I agreed to the service. I mentioned to them that my brake light came on periodically when putting on the brake but went out abruptly after the brake was depressed. They went and checked the brakes carefully and found not one but two brake calipers were either crushed in pieces or broke completely in half. My vehicle only has around 45,000 miles on it and was told by this shop and the dealership when I called them that this was highly unusual. I was gravely concerned about this safety problem and what this would mean to the remaining two calipers. I contacted Chrysler about the problem and they basically told me there was no recall on it, it was out of warranty and there was nothing they were going to do about it. I told them this went beyond a "warranty" issue into a safety issue. This part was not wore out, it was defective (not one but two of them) and a safety hazard.

Brakes woreout around 23,000 or 21,000 I purchased the vehicle used it had 15,000 miles already on it. The brakes were wearing out faster and faster even though I put new routers on them. My mechanic says the calipers are defective. I think the distribution of the brakes is not evenly handle by the front and the back. The front handles to much of thfe work and there is too much weight in the front of the vehicle.
