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.

I purchased my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT about 1 year ago. When purchased, driver's side sliding door was not working at all. The dealer replaced the wire harness last summer and the door worked fine. 10 months later, it suddenly stopped working with no warning. The door will open to about 8 inches then stop and closes to the same point and stops.

My minivan's air conditioning stopped working so I took it into the dealer. This car already was in for a recall on the rear air conditioning/heating lines which were replaced in November of 2006. The dealer told me that it was not the recall lines that were leaking but the rear extension lines which are after the recall lines. The parts are also on backorder for well over one month or more. I was told that they were having a lot of repairs on this part. I cannot help but believe that the original recall for rear air conditioning/heating lines should have included the rear air conditioning/heating extension lines also. Bear in mind that my van is around 3 1/2 years old with 42,112 miles on it.

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan developed problems with the heating and air conditioner system.** answer required***. while driving the A/C lines blew. The vehicle was taken to a local dealer who explained that this was a known problem with the air and heat. The problem could not be fixed because the part was on back order.

Purchased a 2005 doge Grand Caravan from bob caldwell Dodge dealership about 2 months ago. A little over a month of having the vehicle the air conditioning just stop putting out cool air and we noticeds some spots of something leaking in the drive way. We took the vehichle back to the dealership where we purchased and they indicated that a stone or rock had went through the air conditioner's compressor. There was nothing they could do and it would be $800+ to fix it. They indicated also that we weren't the first and that because of the design and the placement of the compressor that we won't be the last and even if we fix it, it will probably happen again. We called Dodge directly and they spoke with the dealership and agreed that this was not something that they would considered under any warranty and denied to cover the payment of the services. We called around locally to other dealerships and there was a total of 5 in less then one week and all agree that is was some sort of design/placement flaw and that this would continue to happen. We could attach a screen protection somehow to the front to protect the compressor but still no guarentees.
