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.

problem #1

Dec 012006

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,100 miles
: the contact stated while driving 10 mph and turning right, there was a clicking noise coming from the steering column. The steering became very tight to the point of almost locking up. Excessive force was required to turn the steering wheel, accompanied by a noise as if there was plastic fracturing inside the steering column. The horn, the radio controls, the air bag, the traction control switch, and the switch that controlled the pedal distance all disengaged at once. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, who determined that the clockspring had detached. The first 3 times this had occurred, the clockspring was replaced. The fourth time, the steering wheel and the clockspring were replaced. This was the fifth occurrence. In this instance, the vehicle was not taken to the dealer. The problems persisted in spite of all the repairs. The manufacturer was also notified.
