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.

2003 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #6

Grand Caravan

  • 95,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I purchased my Dodge Grand Caravan sport 2003 brand new off the lot in Nov. 2002. I kept it in mint condition with all maintenance logs filled out. At the time of incident there were only 95,000 miles on the van. It had never been in a wreck before. On Jan 18 2015 while driving in the mountains I hit black ice and lost control of the vehicle. It flipped front to back, did a 180 mid air, landed on wheels then rolled at least once to the left, landing on the wheels again. The airbags never deployed. My passenger and I both had our seatbelts on however I still lifted up and hit my head on the roof and the windshield. We are still assessing our injuries. I am extremely concerned as to how I lifted out of my seat, basically the seatbelt did not tighten to me. Also why didn't the airbags deploy" has there been a recall concerning the airbags or seat belts or other that I was never informed of"

Driver side seat belt tongue could not be inserted into latch. The latch could not be opened, no matter how manipulated. This is safety hazard as the driver cannot latch seat belt.

I would like to complain about the Dodge seat belts. With the studies done why Dodge hasn't changed all seat belts that aren't safe or achieved a high safety rating. I have ordered a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan and I am concerned about the seat belts in the back and middle seats. I would like for Dodge to as an option on new vehicles at the least be able to trade in the 3 seat belts for the 4 Grand Caravan front seat belts.
