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.

2007 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 132007

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. From September of 2007 until may of 2008, the vehicle was taken to the dealer three times for transmission failure. While attempting to accelerate from a red light, the transmission feels as if it will drop to the ground when shifting from first to second gear. On May 14, 2008, the transmission was finally repaired under warranty. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection because paint was peeling from the rear passenger side quarter panel. The dealer stated that tar adhered to the paint; therefore, they washed the quarter panel and scraped off the paint. When the vehicle and headlights are turned off, the instrument panel lights, fog lights, and headlights would remain illuminated, even though the switch was in the off position. While the vehicle was parked, the exterior lights would illuminate automatically, which drained the battery. The dealer stated that the headlamp switch shorted out. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The contact stated that the switch on the panel to shut the vehicle doors did not work for two days. It has begun to work again, but the contact believes it is only a matter of time before the switch fails again. The current mileage was 7,000 and failure mileage was 2,500. Updated 07/10/08. Updated

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles
When slowing down after driving in overdrive and prior to engine reaching normal operating temperature all lights (head, tail, dash, dome, etc) dim to a nearly off brightness and come right back to normal brightness at the 3/2 down shift. This has occurred since the vehicle was new and the dealer advises that everything is working as designed. I don't think Chrysler designed the lights to flash off and on when slowing down. Also, at 7 months (15696 miles) the battery failed and had to be replaced.
