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

  • 250,400 miles


We have been smelling the smell of gas for awhile, today it got alot stronger, we had just put gas in the van and we thought may some had gotten spilled on the outside. When we stopped to wash it I looked underneath and saw a huge puddle of gas forming on the ground. Come to find out there had been a recall in October 2002. Looked on my carfax and it doesnt list that as being repaired. We could have been killed.
