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

  • 83,000 miles


While driving my driver side sliding door on my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT shattered. This is the second time in 1.5 years that the side door glass shattered while driving. The first incident was December 20, 2006 and the passenger door glass shattered. Both times while driving for no apparent reason. I called Chrysler who said they have never heard of this and offered 2 reasons, 1) sudden change in temperature (neither time was there a drastic change in temperature) and the second reason given was possibly a scratch on the glass if I had scrapped them for some reason. They also informed me that my van was out of warranty. I knew that and glass is not covered under warranty any way. It seems more than a coincidence that 2 separate pieces of original factory glass on separate doors would shatter in this way. I always use the automatic opener and closer and very rarely is the door manually opened or closed (either doors). It is a safety hazard as this vehicle is purchased by many people with medium to large families and carry children. When the glass shatters and you need to continue driving until you can get the glass secured people or children that may be inside will have glass all over them. In short Chrysler refused to pay for any replacement glass or acknowledge it could be an issue and to my knowledge is not being investigated by Chrysler/Dodge for a possible design flaw either or defect in glass.
