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

  • 9,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. The contact stated that the brakes have been repaired five times. The rotors have been turned once and replaced twice two months ago. When the complaint was filed, the rotors needed to be replaced again. The dealer stated that the failures are caused by "faulty" driving. Chrysler has not been contacted. The air conditioner malfunctioned three times and was repaired. Every season the air conditioner malfunctions. The rear hoses were replaced twice along with the compressor. The power locks on all of the doors were defective. The passengers were unable to open the door although the door locks were in the unlocked position. The passenger front windows started making a clanging noise when it was opened and that was repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 9,000. The current mileage was approximately 83,000.

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, 71,000 miles, air conditioning stop putting out cold air - no leaks but compressor started to make noises and seized, shut A/C off just in time before the compressor pulley burned thru the one belt that drives everthing - this could be a safety issue if out in the middle of nowhere.
