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.

The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. The contact stated that while driving, the vehicle was leaking water from the cooling system and overheating. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer, who stated that hoses for the cooling system needed to be replaced. There were no recalls addressing the failure. The manufacturer was notified and advised the contact to inform NHTSA. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 58,000. The VIN was unavailable.

Grand Caravan

  • 40,000 miles
Air conditioner failed prematurely, at this time the car has 45,000 the failure must have happened before 40,000. Cooling A/C is not working, blowing warm air. Looking online found many 08 Grand Caravan owners with same complaints. Car after warranty will cost $135 to inspect and refill. I asked the dealer to pressure check the hoses for leaks, they said they will do a color dye check on the A/C system hoses. Brakes were done at 12,000 miles failed again at 35,000, this time I am not going to have the dealer fix it, I am ordering reybestos hybrid rotors and advanced performance brake pads. Warning - Dodge oem brakes and rotors are pos, do not let Dodge install them. I am also considering replacing the calipers with reworked caliper from another source. Horrible noise from rear brakes, when driving and the brake is not engaged. Slight right turns also cause squeaks/grind noise that sound like its coming from rear. When brake is engaged the noise stops.
