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.

Turn signal intermittently fails to work at all. Worse, left signal will be selected, but right signal will be delivered. Sometimes, signal works correctly. Dangerous. Wipers work very unpredicatably, or not at all. Will not come on, then will not go off. Will run very fast or very slow, and won't adjust.

Driving down a highway, and the right rear window of our 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan (63K miles) just fell out at ~60 miles per hour. There was no warning, the car has never been in an accident, the window was not vented, and nothing was up against the window. We are fortunate that this happened while we were in the right lane, and it was the right side of the car, so the window probably fell to the side of the road. We are also fortunate that we did not have anything fall out the window that could have caused an accident. We reported the incident (informally) to the police so that they could drive by the area where it occurred to ensure there were no road hazards. We have nothing to explain why the window fell out. We contacted Chrysler and they concluded it was not a defect. I'm not sure how they came to that conclusion, but they seem content that this could have happened without any explanation. Chrysler provided no help in covering the $700 charge to replace the window. Also, when I asked which government Agency I should contact to report this as a safety issue, they would not give me an answer. They only stated that the incident will be kept in our own "personal" file, and implied that keeping this information in a private file is sufficient. I disagree, and feel that this complaint should be known to the NHTSA in case there are other similar occurrences.

Windshield wipers stuck together during rain causing visibility problems. I had to pull of the interstate highway and manually separate the wipers. Had this happened in heavy traffic with heavy rain, I would have been blinded.

I had purchased my vehicle December 26, 2004. I am the not-so-proud owner of a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SE. There were 20 K(give or take a thous miles) miles on it when I purchased it, and it currently has just shy of 79K. All of the listed complaints have happened since owning the vehicle for 3 months or less... 1---when I purchased the lemon, I heard a thudding sound, while driving (coming from the front driver wheel well side). I was assured that this was road noise. I persisted something was wrong, on the 3rd attempt, they had tighted/replaced a "sway bushing" (forgive me I think that is what it was called). I didn't hear the noise for a couple of days and it returned. I had brought it in about 3 additional times to 2 different dealers, finally telling me they can not duplicate the problem, their suggestion to be was to turn up the radio!! out of pure it gets on my !@#$ nerves attitude, took it to another place I 6/07, and replaced the struts and shocks....still hear the thudding....2.5 years after initial complaint! 2----my headlights most of the time, do not come on. Or if you are driving at night, they go off without is this safe for me and my family...again could not duplicate. 3----my wipers rub funny while in use, which finally caused my back wiper to just not work on 7/4/2005. I go thru an unreasonable pairs of window wipers---once again, could not duplicate. This repair is still on the back burner for me to fix. 4--had to replace the egr valve to pass inspection/emissions....what about 7/70? 5-rust! I have several rust bubbles coating my white mini-van like a young child coming of age!
