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.

Automatic door locks stopped working. The interior lights worked intermittently when door opened. Consumer took vehicle to the dealer for repairs, but the problem recurred.

When using the keyless entry to open the rear tailgate, the gate locks sometimes while it is opened. When you then close it using the keypad, the door lowers and the instrument panel warning light says door is closed, but it is not really locked and can open whole driving. Also happens when using overhead console switch. Dodge was not concerned when I brought it for warranty and just put on repair order that they could not duplicate it although I showed them the same failure after opening and closing 3 times.

On a 2003, grand, Caravan just above both sliding doors on the drip rail sheet metal was raised, and the chalking was cracked which permitted water to enter the interior sheet metal. This caused corrosion. Dodge corporation stated they would only chalk it again, and would give no further warranty for corrosion other then what was offered. These were obvious stress points. Also, right side door did not automatically close all the time. It cycled 3/4 of the way and opened again. Driver's door if closed after using the automatic lock button would unlock when closed.

Every Dodge vehicle on my street, including my brand new Dodge Grand Caravan that I have owned for less than 3 weeks, was broken into and burglarized. Apparently this vehicle is very easy to break into and now the vehicle is totally unsecured until it is repaired.
