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.

Own a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan sport. Car was towed to Dodge dealer on Friday July 20,2006, due to rough engine idling. Was told that it was a PCM, would take until the following Wednesday to have to part shipped in ( I live in the Chicago area ). on Thursday Dodge called to say that the rocker arm in the # 5 piston needed to be replaced, this would take additional time. The rocker arm was replaced and again Dodge called to advise me that now there was a short in the electrical harness and they would need to trace to locate the short. Car was finally returned to me on August 9,2006. My wife used it to go to the store, she called me and said the car had died while stopping at a red light.this was just 4 hours after picking the car up from the dealer. Car was again towed to Dodge dealer. Total time Dodge has had my car is now 21 days and counting. I've had to rent 3 different cars during this time all on my own expense.

When driving with the headlights on lights dimmed, and the heat from the air vents temperature decreased. This occurred when coming to a complete stop, or if consumer removed foot from the accelerator pedal. Dealership replaced the module/alternator, transmission control module, and the main computer, but the problem still occurred.
